I think juicy titles are given without real meaning. There is no relevance in marginal differences of revenue from December to January.
Frustration derives from that most articles on EE times do this. Perhaps deliberate to entice opinion and reaction?
"2 articles on TSMC that imply or suggest problems or booms in trade based on very short term / macro revenue figures."
Maybe this was not implied. For eg, in the last article Peter says annual sales were good. A
@supersonic I don't understand your complaint. December sales were lower than November and January sales went back up. TSMC predicted a decrease in their Q4 sales months earlier, hence the bit about the prediction.
1 month ago, EE-Times publishes a contrasting report:
" TSMC sales fall steeply, as predicted "
Almost every article and opinion is nonsense. Are there any good alternatives too EE Times?
