TSMC (TSM) CEO Morris Chang confirms his company is thinking of building a chipmaking plant in the U.S., but insists its actions have "nothing to do with Apple." Speculation about recent efforts from an unnamed party to find a location for a U.S. plant centered around TSMC and Apple (AAPL). Apple is famous for demanding total secrecy from partners, and there's always the possibility it would be one of multiple companies serviced through a U.S. TSMC plant.

    I thought INTC has a lot of spare FAB space. Why does AAPL buy stuff from USA.

     

    I think they should keep all the critical hardware sourcing in USA and they will not problems they are having with Samsung,

    New York was reportedly in the running for the new chip plant.

     

    I am guessing that nobody has mentioned the amount of taxes will be paid by the workers at the plant to Andrew Cuomo and his Albany buddies. Property tax, school tax, income tax, and county taxes at a rate that will make you wonder why the company did this to you. Best wishes.

     

    The company will get a sweetheart deal and be given tax breaks, no doubt. The employees better hope the plant is near Pennsylvania, so they can live there.
