Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) stock is rising higher on Wednesday as investors react to an upgrade from NewStreet Research analyst Pierre Ferragu.

The NewStreet Research analyst upgraded shares of AMD stock from a “neutral” rating to a “buy” rating today. To put that in perspective, the analyst consensus rating for AMD shares is a moderate buy based on 30 opinions.

Ferragu continues to hold a $215 price target for AMD stock alongside the upgrade. That represents a potential upside of about 27% for the stock. It’s also well above the analyst consensus price prediction of $151.26 per share.

What’s Behind the AMD Stock Upgrade?

Here’s what the NewStreet Research analyst said in a note to clients obtained by CNBC:

“AMD best way to play a fast adoption scenario, with most valuation and expectation upside […] The fast adoption scenario corresponds to the AMD guide for $400bn spent on AI chips in 2027, and corresponds to the full picture we have described in the first part of this series. In essence, it is a scenario in which AI usage continues to grow faster than deployments, with spending on AI accelerated growing unabated.”

AMD stock is up 4.5% as of Wednesday morning. That comes as some 25 million shares change hands. That’s still below its daily average trading volume of about 64.3 million shares.
