TSMC: Biden’s $6.6 Billion Boost Only the Start of Stock’s Prolonged Bull?

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE:) stock has been surging in recent days on the announcement of plans to construct a third factory at its US site in Phoenix, Arizona. This move boosts the company’s investment in the industrial complex to over $65 billion.

The investment marks a significant milestone, standing as the largest foreign direct investment in Arizona’s history and the largest foreign direct investment in a greenfield project in US history.

TSMC’s Role in US-China Chip War Earns It Special Treatment

TSMC plays a pivotal role in the US-China chip war. As the world’s leading microchip manufacturer, it surpassed competitors Samsung (KS:) and Intel (NASDAQ:) in revenue in 2023.

This dominance in a market crucial to technology underscores its strategic importance. Notably, TSMC counts tech giants NVIDIA (NASDAQ:) and Apple (NASDAQ:) among its major customers, further cementing its influence.

Given its strategic significance, TSMC receives special treatment in the ******* States. President Joe Biden recently announced that TSMC is eligible for up to $6.6 billion in direct funding from the US Department of Commerce under the Chips and Science Act. This legislation aims to bolster domestic research and semiconductor manufacturing.

TSMC’s President Mark Liu emphasized the importance of these investments in advancing semiconductor technology in the ******* States. The company’s US operations not only strengthen its support for ********* customers but also enhance its ability to anticipate future advancements in the semiconductor industry.

The US Chip Act, enacted in 2022, earmarks approximately $280 billion to enhance US chip research and production. Of this, around $52 billion is allocated to subsidize domestic chip production.

The establishment of three factories in Arizona by TSMC is expected to create about 6,000 direct job opportunities for skilled workers in the industry. Additionally, besides the proposed $6.6 billion in direct financing, the agreement with the US Department includes provisions for providing TSMC with up to $5 billion in loans.
