Apple (AAPL) iPhone chip supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) saw healthy sales growth in November thanks to strong demand for smartphone processors. Taiwan Semiconductor stock spiked to a record high on the news Thursday.


Taiwan Semi reported revenue of $3.54 billion in November. Sales rose 1.7% from the previous month and popped 9.7% year over year in local currency.


'We think this is largely due to smartphones (seasonal ramp) along with a recovery in data center chips,' RBC Capital Markets analyst Mitch Steves said in a report to clients Wednesday.


He added, 'Notably, we think first quarter 2020 will likely see high demand for 7-nanometer chips due to ramps at AMD (AMD), while smartphones could continue to be strong (Chinese New Year), where Huawei and MediaTek would likely drive demand.'


Taiwan Semiconductor Stock Gaps Up


On the stock market today, Taiwan Semiconductor stock jumped 4.9% to close at an all-time high of 58.61.


On Sept. 17, Taiwan Semiconductor stock broke out of a cup-with-handle base at a buy point of 44.98, according to IBD MarketSmith charts. For the past week, it has been trading in the 20%-25% profit-taking zone. It gapped out of that zone on Thursday.


Qualcomm Seen As Key Beneficiary Of 5G Wireless


Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang sees Taiwan Semiconductor as one of the key beneficiaries from the ramp of 5G wireless. Wireless chipmaker Qualcomm (QCOM) is another semiconductor firm poised to benefit from adoption of 5G smartphones, he said in a note to clients Thursday.


'For 2020, we expect Huawei, Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi to ship a combined 200 million 5G smartphones globally, Samsung to ship 40-60 million 5G smartphones globally, and Apple to ship 30 million 5G smartphones globally,' Zhang said.


Huawei, Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi are top Chinese smartphone makers. Samsung, the world's leading smartphone vendor, is based in South Korea.


Bank of America and Cowen earlier cited chipmakers Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Qorvo(QRVO) and Qualcomm as 5G beneficiaries.


He added, 'Notably, we think first quarter 2020 will likely see high demand for 7-nanometer chips due to ramps at AMD (AMD), while smartphones could continue to be strong (Chinese New Year), where Huawei and MediaTek would likely drive demand.'

Grain boundaries in ceramics may not be as chemically stable as previously thought. So say researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US who have found that carbon atoms collect or segregate at the boundaries of silicon carbide – a technologically important ceramic – when the material is exposed to ionizing radiation. The result could help improve our understanding of ceramics in ge...

Waste heat is all around you. On a small scale, if your phone or laptop feels warm, that's because some of the energy powering the device is being transformed into unwanted heat.On a larger scale, electric grids, such as high power lines, lose over 5% of their energy in the process of transmission. In an electric power industry that generated more than US$400 billion in 2018, that's a tremendous a...
