Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE:TSM) is a Taiwanese business focused on the creation of semiconductor chips for various tech giants. TSM has seen great growth Year-to-Date with a valuation increase of 40%. 

Q3 2023 marked a down quarter for TSM financially, reporting YoY declines in figures. Revenue came in at $17.3 billion in the third quarter which represents a 10.8% year-over-year drop. Net income and EPS also declined year-over-year which was expected. Overall, the down quarter was attributed to global economic conditions, which are projected to finish at the start of 2024.

The largest catalyst boosting Taiwan Semiconductor’s stock valuation is its net zero renewable energy initiative. Aiming for 2040, TSM aims to run its company solely on renewable energy, along with the increased goal of 60% renewable energy usage by 2030.

With large tech companies holding goals that parallel TSM, it is no surprise that businesses are beginning to look towards Taiwan Semiconductor for supply and products compared to competitors without similar goals. Expect TSM’s revenue to receive a massive surge as the result of increased business, launching it to be a trillion-dollar company.
