Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) and ASML (NASDAQ: ASML) are two of the world's most important semiconductor companies. Nvidia is the world's largest producer of discrete graphics processing units (GPUs) for video games, graphical applications, and artificial intelligence (AI) tasks. ASML is the top producer of lithography systems used to etch circuit patterns onto silicon wafers and the only supplier of top-tier extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography systems required to produce the world's smallest and densest chips.
Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE: TSM) is the world's largest contract chip manufacturer. Because of that, owning TSMC for the long term is the only way to go. With its 3nm processes just coming up to speed, there's a significant business chunk that hasn't been realized as revenue, giving Taiwan Semiconductor a substantial upside.
Rapidus is emerging as Japan's bold response to advanced global semiconductor manufacturing. Harnessing IBM's 2nm technology, Rapidus is set to revolutionize the industry, focusing on AI and super-computing, but is it a Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM) competitor? Check out the short video to learn what semiconductor investors Jose Najarro and Billy Duberstein had to say.
This may feel like irrational exuberance, but Texas Instruments, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Qualcomm each have roles to play in AI.
According to the average brokerage recommendation (ABR), one should invest in TSMC (TSM). It is debatable whether this highly sought-after metric is effective because Wall Street analysts' recommendations tend to be overly optimistic. Would it be worth investing in the stock?

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) -Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC is still in talks about a possible plant in Germany but there will be no decision before August at the earliest, a company executive said on Tuesday. "I don't want to get into the politics side of the thing, but I do think that there is a need for us to provide our customers with a diverse supply," Kevin Zhang, senior vice president of business development, told reporters, adding that Europe is a "very significant geography given the customer base ... (and) the demand". TSMC, the world's largest contract chipmaker, has been in talks with the German state of Saxony since 2021 over the possibility of building a fabrication plant, or "fab," in Dresden, which would be its first European facility.
The move made sense: TSMC is the global leader in the business of manufacturing advanced chips. For customers like Apple that need hundreds of millions of cutting-edge chips each year, there is no viable alternative to TSMC right now. Just a few months after betting billions on TSMC, Buffett turned around and sold the bulk of Berkshire's holdings.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM) is the world's largest and most advanced contract chipmaker, and its top clients include Apple, Advanced Micro Devices, and Qualcomm. The Taiwan-based chipmaker also remains ahead of its closest competitors -- Intel and Samsung -- in the ongoing "process race" to produce smaller, denser, and more power-efficient chips.

Seeking lucrative long-term growth with some serious market momentum? Check out this duo of soaring tech titans with strong potential for sustained gains.
Retiring a millionaire is a goal for many investors, because it is a threshold many feel is necessary to retire comfortably. When assessing a company's growth potential, it's essential to consider the future operating environment and if the company could be disrupted. CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD) operates in the cybersecurity industry, which is slated to grow significantly over the coming years due to bad actors ramping up attacks.
Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) is an easy choice for this list. Nvidia makes some of the world's most powerful GPUs (graphics processing units), which can be used in gaming computers, data centers, and, most importantly, training artificial intelligence (AI) models. This key industry should propel Nvidia's business into the $1 trillion club, but it will need to execute better than it has been.
(Bloomberg) -- Prime Minister Fumio Kishida met with the heads of the world’s largest chipmakers on Thursday in Japan’s latest move to boost its domestic semiconductor sector amid a global rethink of economic security.Executives from Micron Technology Inc. to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. told Kishida they would consider investing further in Japan, depending on the financial incentives offered and customer demand, according to Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Yasutoshi Nishimura.
Stocks did well today, but tech stocks did even better, and semiconductor stocks did even better than that. Shares of the leading semiconductor foundry were surging today, up 6.5% as of 2:56 p.m. ET. The company, also known as TSMC, actually had muted performance to start the week amid news that Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway had completely sold out of the stock last quarter, as reported in a filing Monday night.
TOKYO (Reuters) -Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida plans to meet with top executives from global semiconductor companies as early as on Thursday to strengthen multilateral cooperation, Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said.

Ahead of Matsuno's comment, two people involved in planning the meeting had told Reuters that Kishida will meet with executives from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC) and six other chip firms to seek active investment in Japan and tighter cooperation with Japanese companies.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and Intel compete in chip manufacturing and are also crossing paths in a distinct market.
