AMD's announcement yesterday about spinning off their manufacturing put a whole new perspective on the company, or so investors thought.

After it was revealed that the manufacturing business was bringing in a substantial loss for AMD in trying to compete with Intel, selling part of that unit has sent a clear message to investors. Shortly after the announcement, the companies value skyrocketed, increasing almost 19% in value in just a few hours. Later on the stock would take a step back to close at a more conservative 8.5% gain.
