Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) stock hit a 52-week high in January this year, but the price for this high-flying chipmaker has pulled back over 20% since then thanks to a variety of factors such as the broader sell-off in tech stocks and rival Intel‘s (NASDAQ: INTC) resurgence under new leadership.
