TSM Q4:2007 Results

So Taiwan Semi reported. They're important because they're the largest foundry -- they manufacture more semis than almost anyone else.

TSM thinks the market next year will grow in the mid-single digits, which is a downtick from an earlier estimate of mid-single to high-single. Putting their money where their mouth is, they cut capex to $1.8 billion for 2008. Previously they haven't had a capex estimate out there for 2008. I spent some time with management 3 months ago and they said capex is a fluid process -- so the fluid is clearly flowing the wrong way.

Once again, negative for the semi capex suppliers.
