    TSMC Q4 profit rises 16.4%, beats market forecasts

    TAIPEI, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Taiwan chip company TSMC posted a 16.4% rise in quarterly net profit on Thursday, Reuters calculations show, boosted by a semiconductor boom for smartphones and laptops during the COVID-19 pandemic that led to a supply shortage of chips.

    Net profit for October-December at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC) , the world's largest contract chipmaker and a major Apple Inc (AAPL.O) supplier, rose to T$166.2 billion ($6.01 billion) from T$142.8 billion a year earlier.

    That was higher than the T$161.6 billion average of 22 analyst estimates compiled by Refinitiv.
