This has the Truist analyst updating his price target for AMD stock from $144 to $111 per share. That still implies roughly 10% upside compared to the stock’s closing price on Friday. For the record, the consensus price target for AMD is $148.58 per share.

One thing that didn’t change is Stein maintaining his “hold” rating for AMD stock. That’s a bit more bearish than the analysts’ consensus “buy” rating. That’s made up of 17 “buy” and 11 “hold” ratings.

So what’s behind the lowered price target for AMD stock? Stein points to a sudden shift in demand for semiconductors from a wide collection of businesses. Among them are computer, consumer, and communications OEMs.

Stein points to “a combination of just enough demand destruction and just enough additional supply is leading to a traditional cyclical downturn,” as the reason behind this change.

And it’s not just AMD stock that is being hit by this news. The Truist analyst also lowered his price targets for Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA). In addition to that, he maintains his “hold” rating for INTC and “buy” rating for NVDA shares.

AMD stock is down 3.5%, INTC stock is up slightly, and NVDA stock is down 4.4% as of Monday morning.
