TSMC revises upward 1Q14 guidance
Steve Shen, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Thursday 13 March 2014]
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has revised upward its guidance for the first quarter of 2014 and also provided additional comments on its outlook for the quarter.
First-quarter revenues will reach NT$147 billion (US$4.84 billion), up 0.8% sequentially compared to a 5-7% decline forecast previously.
Meanwhile, first-quarter gross margin is expected to top 47% compared to 44.5-46.6% forecast in mid-January, while operating margin is expected to reach 35%, up from the previous target of 32-34%, TSMC said.
"The upside to the first quarter guidance comes mainly from the increases in demand for our 28nm wafers and from customers' active restocking of their inventories," said Lora Ho, senior vice president and CFO of TSMC. "The first quarter upside is perhaps a good prelude to an already anticipated strong year."
TSMC posted revenues of NT$98.26 billion in the first two months of 2014, reaching 66.8% of its revised first-quarter sales target.
I just read several informative posts, didn't have to sort through conspiracy theories, childish accusations and rants, posts saying "well, Intel didn't drop that much!". and it took less than 10 minutes and now I'm on to other things. Whoever muzzled him, I thank you.
If that's one of them, then Intel officially is scrambling.

Ironically, America was never proud of you, either.
Nobody is buying your scam. Telling one of your own aliases to put a sock in it on a Saturday night.........you've hit an all-time low.
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Best/funniest/most kick-in-the-teeth reponse I've ever seen. Just.......wow.
Wally suddenly had "something come up." Funny how that works. This post proves he's a nutcase.
Sorry, it's actually up 8 bucks since he tried to scam you 1 month ago and up about 23 bucks since he told you to sell at 25 last year.
ARM Down 41 Cents

ARM is down 41 cents and 82 cents off the high of the day as the big boys are still having trouble propping it up.
Once again, ARM investors look exhausted and they have a couple of weeks coming up where they are going to totally get hammered in the news cycles.
I don't see how ARM stays above $40 next week
ARMH up 6 bucks since you threw this #$%$ against the wall a month ago.

You can't make this stuff up. Headed into a fabrication disaster with increased competition and dropping ASPs, margins and profits. Headed into IFA/IDF and the Bay Trail release. A maturing market and tapping on $40 for the third time.
This is a buh-buh-bubble that's going to buh-buh-burst.
