HSINCHU, Taiwan--(BUSINESSWIRE)-- TSMC (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM), today filed its 2017 annual report on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The report is available at http://www.tsmc.com/download/ir/secFillings/20F-2017.pdf ...
On its 2017 investor day, AMD stated that it would expand its non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) gross margin from 31% in 2016 to ~36% in 2018. It improved its gross margin to 34% in 2017 by increasing its ASP (average selling price) and reducing its production costs through the ramp-up of its 14 nm (nanometer) node. AMD’s gross margin expansion of three percentage points in one year was higher than NVIDIA’s (NVDA) an Intel’s (INTC) gross margin expansions of one percentage point and 0.6 percentage points, respectively.
Intel’s(INTC) long-held lead in making the best integrated circuits in the world is “disappearing,” according to a report today in the chip-industry newsletter Microprocessor Report. Lead analyst Linley Gwennap, head of the eponymous Linley Group research firm, writes that after repeated delays by Intel with its “10-nanometer process,” its attempts to manufacture chips with dimensions as small as 10 billionths of an inch, the company is falling behind competitors Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM), the world’s large contract chip maker, and Samsung Electronics (005930KS), and Samsung’s partner, privately held GlobalFoundries.
In January 2018, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Intel (INTC) chips were found to be vulnerable to hardware design flaws, which put the two companies to work developing software fixes. It hasn’t been long, but a small Israeli security company called CTS Labs has discovered another threat in AMD’s CPUs (central processing unit). On March 12, 2018, in its whitepaper, CTS Labs stated, “The vulnerabilities we have discovered allow bad actors who infiltrated the network to persist in it, surviving computer reboots and re-installation of the operating system, while remaining virtually undetectable by most endpoint security solutions.” It named these flaws RYZENFALL, MASTERKEY, FALLOUT, and CHIMERA, with the last flaw being a potential national security concern.
We will be taking a look at three of the most-important reports from the tech sector to watch over the coming days. Make sure to keep an eye on these companies as they prepare to report during the week of April 16.
Ahead of the earnings report on April 18 from chip equipment maker ASML (ASML), the Street is contemplating its sales could be hurt by slowing use of its tools at chip makers such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM)—and unwillingness by Apple (AAPL) to subsidize its cutting-edge technology. After describing problems with getting adequate “throughput” of silicon wafers in ASML’s machines, Mullane wrote “with no near-term fixes to the throughput issues alone, there is a high risk to ASML that EUV implementation into high volume manufacturing could be delayed again." Part of the problem, apparently, is that Apple, a big customer of TSM, which fabricates chips for the iPhone, doesn’t want to have to pay extra money it would cost TSM to make chips using the ASML technology, known as “EUV,” or “extreme ultraviolet”: Our latest checks suggest that AAPL is not interested in paying more for 7nm+ shrink for their next generation iPhone models in 2019, given the early price increases that TSM has quoted.
Stifel Nicolaus analyst Kevin Cassidy is bullish on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) at a time when many Wall Street analysts are bearish on the stock because of cryptocurrency. According to a Barron’s article, Cassidy is bullish on AMD’s future growth potential in the server market. In fact, he expects AMD to win a 3% share from Intel (INTC) in this space in 2018.
Some analysts are not concerned about a Chinese alternative for Advanced Micro Devices’ (AMD) and NVIDIA’s (NVDA) GPUs (graphics processing unit) for Ethereum mining, as there’s ample of demand after excluding crypto miners.
S&P 500 futures fell overnight. Broadcom jumped late on a $12 billion buyback plan while Qualcomm rose on fresh buyout talk. Intel and Taiwan Semiconductor are closer to buying opportunities.
The first-quarter earnings season for chip stocks gets underway next week when ASML, Lam Research and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing release their March-quarter results.
