This is a good answer for the experts who were insisting on the point "Fabless or fab-lite companies aint making good money" It would be great to have a comparison top 10 list about IC foundries who are indeed the real winners of the game. Anyone can give a hand on that?

It is clear from the list above that product innovation & IP is still largely in the US-based companies.
