Any particular reason for this sudden jump in its revenues ? Will TSMC be able to maintain this growth in future too ?

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?
