Jefferies maintains a 'Buy' on AMD (NYSE: AMD) price target of $9.00 (from $10.00).

Analyst, Mark Lipacis, said, "AMD's miss was bigger than we expected, and we lower our estimates and price target but maintain our rating for 3 reasons: 1) We believe the supply chain materially destocked MPUs during the quarter, 2) After market trading to $5 implies EV/S of 0.6x, it was lower only twice, in 2011 and 2002, 3) gross margins appear stable despite the top line miss, underscoring its product cycle (Trinity) and fabless model."

FY12 EPS estimate cut from $0.74 to $0.48 and FY13 from $1.06 to $0.70.
