    Earnings for the year could hit $0.75 US which should justify $15 per share.

    Let's relax just a bit, please. Whenever I invest in a stock, like UMC, I first go over the fundamentals carefully... then, buy the stock... and, then FORGET about it for a few years. If you have a different time horizon, you will get cranky, cantankerous, and VERY irritable. Some of the posts in this forum demonstrate that clearly. It's counterproductive to make yourself unhappy.

    So, why get excited and angry? Why worry about being taken advantage of... or being manipulated by... whatever. Over time, all types of fluctuations will even out. The basic reassurance of a long-term investor is that nearly all quality stocks will GROW in value.

    The problem for day/week traders? They think that they can time the market. Fact check: That's NOT possible. Even the best paid analysts get it wrong. But, if you are patient, you usually win.

    UMC, in my opinion, is solid. It has a very nice and steady growth rate. It's future, I believe, is solid, too. It would not surprise me if large American companies enter into permanent partnerships to guarantee future chip supplies. If so, that will certainly drive up the valuation in the long run.

    Ignore the temporary dips. Sleep better by going LONG.

    If Intel can't buy Global Foundries, and they sure as heck can't afford TSM, why would Intel's sights not move to buying UMC?

    Sir
    Last year, I doubled my investment funds trading AMD, a designer chip stock. Too late I found out TSM was the chip manufacturer. Both went up ten fold from about this same $10 price area. I should have bought AMD or TSM and just held and multiplied my investment funds by X10 instead of X2. Anyway, UMC is now at the same place as AMD and TSM were in early 2020 in hindsight (pun intended). I plan to hold my UMC stock for a year and get the X10 because chips are in huge demand and only are going to increase in demand with AI and other uses. And with UMC partnering with American chip giants, UMC may well go far beyond X10. Just my humble opinion. And hedge funds are jumping in to UMC as well. Big bucks.

    UMC's $8,03 - $9,90 trading range for the last 8 months is coming to an end. I'm pretty comfident we are now entering the $10+ territory, wich would be a great milestone for the company. We will see soon enough if it is the case and hold its strenght

    Sir
    UMC has many small fabrication factories to make chips. They are adding more. Even without redditeers, the price of stock in this company should easily move to the same price as TSMCs. That is why hedge funds are moving in, so they can manipulate the price up and down against new buyers.

    Here is some more information to share with other longs to give us hope of company and price improvement hopefully without joek going ballistic. Whisper has UMC ER on July 28 at 5:15. At that time, its consensus earnings will be 0.0 on revenue of 1.76 Billion. 100% of analysts expect an earnings beat. And 90% expect price to rise. And as I indicated in an earlier post, fundamentals look good with expansion of UMC manufacturing and partnering with large USA company(s.)

    UMC doesn't have any of the characteristics of a meme stock, so wondering why it made the cut:

    A bigger player made some sort of downward adjustment in their holdings today apparently in sloppy selling. The chart between 10 am and 1pm is brutal especially in light of the fact there is no news.

    Here it will be the same. It has gone too high from $ 2 to $ 9. It will return to the $ 4 range.

    In this article:

    (Bloomberg) -- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. shares dropped the most in more than four months after its gross margins disappointed investors who had banked on the chipmaker to benefit from the ongoing chip shortage.

    The stock sank 4.1% in Taipei trading Friday, snapping four days of gains. Gross margin for the second quarter was 50%, below the roughly 51% average predicted by analysts, in part because of the appreciation in the Taiwan dollar during the period. For the September quarter, TSMC forecast gross margin of 49.5% to 51.5%. Analysts from Morgan Stanley called the third-quarter guidance a “disappointment,” warning that gross margins could fall below 50% as early as next year.
