Why AMD, Nvidia And Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Shares Are Rising Today

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD, NVIDIA Corporation NVDA and Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg. Co. Ltd. TSM shares are all trading higher Thursday morning. Shares of semiconductor companies at large are trading higher in sympathy with Samsung, which reported a preliminary 21% increase in quarterly revenue.

Per Bloomberg, Samsung says the company will provide net income and split out divisional performance with its full report at the end of this month.

Bloomberg also reported Samsung's operating profit grew at its slowest pace in more than two years to 14 trillion won ($10.7 billion) in the June quarter, versus the 14.6 trillion won projected. Bloomberg says Samsung posted sales of 77 trillion won, helped by a weakening of the Korean won.

AMD, Nvidia and Taiwan Semiconductor, like Samsung, are all involved in the manufacturing and design of microprocessors for the automobile, computer and consumer electronics industries.

Samsung's better-than-expected sales can be seen as a lift to the broader semiconductor space which has otherwise been trading lower amid overall market weakness. The tech sector has been under pressure amid the ongoing Fed rate hike policy, which has weighed on growth stock valuations.

According to data from Benzinga Pro:

  • AMD is trading higher by 4.77% to $78.95
  • Nvidia is trading higher by 3.48% to $156.56
  • Taiwan Semiconductor is trading higher by 6.57% to $80.46
