Default Re: Why is ATI (Video Cards) Down?

Part of it is definitely attributable to the broader market downturn. The majority of a stock's movement is dictated by the market and the sector, which is why it is important to evaluate broader macrotrends as well as company fundamentals in evaluating individual stocks.

Without having taken a closer look at ATI, in general, I think that tech hardware companies make lousy investments. Margins are low, capital expenditures are huge, and stock option abuse is rampant. Invest in a company because you like their business, not just their products.

(Also I prefer Nvidia cards).
