TSMC and UMC have seen better days, and although Taiwanese market analysts expect an even worse February financial report for these companies, they expect the results to improve from then.

TSMC’s better days are coming in the form of increased flat panel and TV converter app orders, coupled with increased 3G demand that will reportedly “brighten TSMC’s prospects”.
