Advanced Micro Devices amended a regulatory filing on Thursday. The chip maker has expanded the value of its $1.6 billion deal with former subsidiary GlobalFoundries that was announced in May.

Advanced Micro Devices Stock Forecast: 

Thursday’s 1.6% move pushed AMD shares above the 21-day moving average. While that average is still above its 9-day counterpart, other signs give the impression that the rally is ready to continue.

For one, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator appears likely to cross over in the coming sessions as it has narrowed its distance with the signal line. 

Though Thursday faced resistance around $147 and $148, this has been seen before on December 7, 8, 9, 15 and 16. Still the high at $149 demonstrates that the market expects this one to aim for $150 and maybe even $160 soon enough.
