Penguin88 Dont just simply throw out TP without any analysis or justifications. Dont affect others new investor to buy just bcz you are holding it and want the price higher.

Most of tech stock price is already in next 2 year level. You still expecting it to go higher now bcz TSMC is expanding? Expansion will only be materialised in next 3 year and you now want the price reflect next 3 years price so that you can sell and run away? This action is most ppl wanted to have now.

So be aware and look at the risk and reward for this counter at current price.

ali baba Catalysts for higher revenue & profit from the business with TSMC
1. More 7nm and 5nm wafers production. These are the crazy high margin wafer from TSMC and also more demanding maintenance tasks which Frontken supports. Hence, should be able to garner higher profit margin too. TSMC production is running > 100% capacity.

2. Expansions of new foundry from TSMC in Arizona. USD 3.5billion was announced.
Definitely need maintenance team to support the foundry too. Opportunity from Frontken to go to Arizona. 5nm Foundry Production start from 2024.

3. TSMC capex of USD 100bil in 3 years.
Very little information about the USD 100bil. I think they are talking about 2022, 2023 and 2024.
Some will go into capacity expansion and some R&D. Either way, they will need maintenance too.
Do you think Frontken stand a chance?

Shares are always forward looking. Dont you think so?
High semiconductor demands from Automotive, Data Centers, Crypto on top of the consumer electronics like smartphones + 5G chips + HPC. These demands are squeezing the semiconductor capacity now.

By the way, Intel and Samsung also announced huge Capex for coming years spending. It shows that the demands are strong to justify new expansions. Of course R&D will be part of it for smaller nm technologies.
05/04/2021 1:38 PM
Penguin88 Yes share are forward looking. So can you tell the forward PE for this year, next year and next 3 year?

You can even calculate the PEG from now till next 3 year to justify.

If you are able to calculate it and justify it's a good buy, then I will totally agree with you.

Sogbashen Well I have my own judgement on the stock.. u may have urs too... with my homework and judgement I believe the future is bright for This counter... if you think it won’t then you can just buy another counter . It’s simple :) Just do ur own homework and analysis then you will be confident
05/04/2021 3:35 PM
Penguin88 Yes future is bright but current price is most likely alrdy ahead of future earnings significantly. This is valuation.

Dont invest just based on a sentence "Future is bright". Else you will not sustain in investment. Learn more in valuation.
05/04/2021 3:58 PM
Sogbashen U can focus on your own strategy as long as you are winning money. So far I am earning with my own strategy.

Penguin88 Frontken alrdy operate at it's full capacity.

TSMC can only allocate more job to Fronkent when TSMC got more machine. But the expansion will only completed in next 2 to 3 years.

So pls think of this and be realistic in your investment.

The announcement details under 'Basis and justification' and 'Rational and benefits' is consistant with and confirms my understanding of Frontkn's niche precision cleaning services focused on high end nodes (5nm-which Frontkn is ready for), by TSMC fr Apple, resulting in high margins.....

newbie8080 Intel market share is dominants toward PC,laptop and data centre. No doubt about that.

TSMC market share is towards smart phone, tablet, EV, gaming console,IOT and data centre.

Besides that, TSMC manufacture chips for Intel as well.

- TSMC lands rush 5G chip orders from Qualcomm
08/04/2021 4:29 PM
newbie8080 On the surface, Intel’s strategic pivot comes at an ideal moment. The iconic company has fallen behind in recent years, as my Bloomberg News colleagues outlined in a Businessweek feature out Wednesday. And chip shortages are disrupting production in sectors across the economy, from autos to consumer electronics. But despite its bold vision, Intel is set to face challenges to its grand turnaround plan that will prove extremely difficult to overcome.
