Advanced Micro Devices, Inc AMD stock traded higher Thursday in sympathy with Nvidia Corp NVDA after the latter’s upbeat quarterly results and guidance.

Nvidia reported fourth-quarter revenue of $22.10 billion, up 265% year-over-year, above the Street estimate of $20.62 billion. The adjusted EPS of $5.16 beat the Street consensus estimate of $4.64.

Nvidia expects its first-quarter revenue of $24.0 billion, plus or minus 2%, above the Street consensus estimate of $22.16 billion.

Analysts consider AMD as the second most vital artificial intelligence beneficiary after Nvidia.

Meanwhile, a lot has been happening in the industry lately. The U.S. government has intensified its crackdown on China’s leading sanctioned chipmaker, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (SMIC), by restricting additional American imports to its most advanced factory.

This action follows the factory’s production of a high-tech chip for Huawei’s Mate 60 Pro phone, Reuters reports.

The Commerce Department halted shipments from U.S. suppliers to SMIC’s most sophisticated plant, affecting millions of dollars in trade, particularly impacting Entegris, Inc ENTG, a supplier of chipmaking materials and parts.

Entegris, adhering to a valid export license, ceased its shipments upon receiving the Commerce Department’s notification.

The U.S. has already imposed sanctions on China’s access to cutting-edge semiconductor technology, including artificial intelligence.

The move restricted Nvidia and AMD’s access to their primary market.

Nvidia had acknowledged no harm from the U.S. sanctions as Big Tech keeps splurging on their AI ambitions.

However, the U.S. chipmakers have been pressing the government to go softer on the China policy.

Analysts remain divided over the impact of the restrictions on Nvidia.

AMD stock gained 19% year-to-date versus Nvidia at 40%.

Price Actions: AMD shares traded higher by 8.76% at $178.69 on the last check Thursday.
