Investing in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) can be a game-changer for your financial future. By carefully selecting high-potential stocks, you can grow your investment significantly, all while enjoying the benefits of tax-free gains. Today, we’re going to look at how you can turn $10,000 in your TFSA into a substantial nest egg. That will certainly come through investing in key players in the semiconductor industry: Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN) and Celestica (TSX:CLS).

The power of a TFSA

The TFSA is a unique investment vehicle that allows Canadians to earn investment income tax-free. This means that all capital gains, dividends, and interest earned within a TFSA are not subject to tax, allowing your investments to compound more effectively over time. By maximizing your TFSA contributions and choosing high-growth stocks, you can build substantial wealth.


One of the most significant advantages of a TFSA is that all investment income earned within the account is completely tax-free. This includes interest, dividends, and capital gains. Unlike other investment accounts where income is subject to tax, a TFSA allows your money to grow without the drag of taxes, leading to potentially higher overall returns.

What’s more, the TFSA offers unparalleled flexibility when it comes to withdrawals. You can take money out of your TFSA at any time, for any reason, without paying taxes or penalties. Moreover, any amounts withdrawn can be re-contributed in future years, ensuring that you don’t permanently lose your contribution room.

Celestica stock

Alright, now we know why the TFSA. So, why Celestica stock? Celestica is a global provider of supply chain solutions, focusing on the design and manufacturing of advanced technology products. The company plays a crucial role in the semiconductor industry by providing essential components and services for electronic manufacturing.

Celestica’s stock has experienced a remarkable 20% increase over the past six months, reflecting the company’s strong market position and growth prospects. The first-quarter (Q1) 2024 earnings report showed revenues of $1.47 billion, up 10% year over year, with a net income of $52 million.

What’s more, Celestica stock has a robust track record of growth, supported by its strategic partnerships and innovation in supply chain solutions. Looking forward, analysts are bullish on Celestica’s prospects, driven by the expanding semiconductor market and the company’s ability to capitalize on new technology trends. The consensus price target for Celestica is $75, on par with its current price of approximately $75, indicating current strength.

Lundin stock

Lundin stock is a diversified Canadian base metals mining company with operations in Brazil, Chile, Portugal, Sweden, and the United States. The company produces copper, zinc, and nickel, which are essential components in the production of semiconductors.

As of June 2024, Lundin Mining’s stock has shown a solid performance with a year-to-date increase of 15%. The company’s Q1 2024 earnings report highlighted a revenue of $861 million, a 12% increase from the previous quarter, driven by higher copper and nickel prices.

Furthermore, over the past year, Lundin stock has consistently met or exceeded analyst expectations, demonstrating strong operational efficiency and market demand for its products. Analysts are optimistic about the company’s future, with several projecting continued growth due to the rising demand for copper and nickel in the semiconductor industry. The average price target for Lundin stock is currently set at $18, suggesting significant upside potential from its current price of around $15.

Bottom line

Investing in both Lundin Mining and Celestica stock can provide a balanced approach to capturing growth in the semiconductor sector. Lundin Mining offers exposure to the critical raw materials needed for chip production, while Celestica provides direct involvement in the manufacturing and supply chain processes.

This combination allows you to benefit from different aspects of the semiconductor industry, reducing risk and increasing potential returns. So, keep investing, and you’ll see your returns turn not just into a gold mine but a copper mine instead.
