Not sure if we will enter a recession this or next year, but she expects growth to return to 2017-19 GDP (2-2.5%) levels based on earnings growth.

BUY
She bought this in mid-May and is down around 10-12%. She likes their valuation and chances to gain market share. In PCs, they have an edge over Intel, who lag them.
