 TSM - Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing

The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the semiconductor manufacturing company Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening tools to find stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals then sorted that list by the most frequent number of new highs in the last month. I then used the Flipchart function to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 9/4 the stock gained 14.73%.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturer Co is the world's largest dedicated integrated circuit foundry.
