Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NASDAQ:AMD) is down 2.4% at $95.51 at last glance, despite a price-target hike from Raymond James to $115 from $100. The firm resumed coverage with a "strong buy" earlier this month. 

Today's pullback has AMD falling from Friday's seven-month highs. The stock is still above its 320-day moving average, however, after last week breaking above it for the first time since June. Year-to-date, the equity is up 47.5%.

Furthermore, the security's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at a 93 out of 100, meaning it has exceeded option traders' volatility expectations during the past year.
