Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) stock is rising higher on Friday as shares of the semiconductor company continue to rise alongside artificial intelligence (AI) related names.

This latest surge in price has resulted in AMD stock reaching a market valuation of $300 billion. That’s a new record for the company and is furthering investor interest in Advanced Micro Devices.

Stocks are also getting a boost on Friday from the latest personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index. This showed inflation increased by 0.4% for January and 2.8% year-over-year (YOY). This matches what Wall Street was expecting for the period.

It’s also worth mentioning that Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) has seen gains recently alongside other AI stocks. Considering it and AMD are both in the semiconductor space, it makes sense that the shares would rise in tandem with each other.
