Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM) posted record profits in the fourth quarter, but that's not why Motley Fool analyst John Rotonti believes the company is so important. In this podcast, he analyzes the company's commitment to invest more than $40 billion this year to increase manufacturing capacity, as well as the latest news from homebuilders KB Home (NYSE: KBH) and Lennar (NYSE: LEN). Plus, Motley Fool analysts Deidre Woollard and Matt Argersinger discuss Sun Belt migration, remote work, and other big trends in real estate, along with some investment opportunities to consider.
Once again, semiconductor stock Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) is leading tech stocks lower as its shares had slumped 6.6% by 10:25 a.m. ET today. The most obvious answer is that investors are favoring "cheap" semiconductor stock Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) over "expensive" semiconductor stock Nvidia today, especially because Intel had some good news to report last week. On Friday, Intel announced that it has chosen to locate two new chip factories near Columbus, Ohio, picking the city from a field of 40 locations that had competed for the investment.
Unfortunately for those who want the current semiconductor shortage to end as soon as possible, ASML CEO Peter Wennink's comments seemed to indicate the current chip crunch could last quite awhile still. For the fourth quarter, ASML reported nearly 5 billion euros in revenue, up 17.2% over the prior-year quarter. Given that we are still in a huge chip shortage and companies across the world are scrambling to increase supply, and given that ASML has a monopoly on some on key technology, one might have thought revenue would have been higher.
