BofA/Merrill Lynch downgraded AMD (NYSE: AMD) from Neutral to Underperform with a price target of $4.00 (from $4.50).

Analyst Vivek Arya said, "While management has done a good job of strengthening the balance sheet and winning critical business with major console customers, we believe the legacy PC/graphics market continues to be a material headwind."

The analyst notes AMD’s PC sales declined 20% YoY (vs. Intel’s +6%) due to its overexposure to weak consumer PC and negligible enterprise exposure.

The firm cut FY 2014 EPS from $0.19 to $0.08, FY 2015 EPS from $0.20 to $0.06 and FY 2016 EPS from $0.19 to $0.06.
