Taiwan Semicond (NYSE:TSM)
Historical Stock Chart
5 Years : From Jul 2012 to Jul 2017
Made-to-order chip maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSM) expects its revenue growth for next year to beat the estimated 6%-7% growth for the global non-memory semiconductor industry, Chairman Morris Chang said Friday.
Chang said that while the global economy would likely grow "very slowly" in 2012, revenue in the semiconductor sector has always outpaced the expansion of the world economy. He didn't elaborate.
TSMC, considered a technology bellwether for its diversified client base that includes Qualcomm Inc. and Nvidia Corp., has reduced its capital spending budget twice this year because of deteriorating market conditions.
