TSM reports on July 19. Wall Street is looking for 27 cents a share, an improvement of 3 cents (11.1%) from 24 cents in second quarter last year.

Shares have appreciated 5.7% in the last year, and the average analyst target price for TSM is $15.70. However, in the last month the stock has fallen 3% and is now below the widely watched 200-day moving average.

The trailing 12-month P/E is 15.3, the mean fiscal-year estimated P/E ratio is 12.91, based on earnings of $1.02 a share this year. Investors are receiving 40 cents in dividends for a yield of 3.06%.

Year-over-year revenue increased to $13.32 billion last fiscal year, compared to $9.22 billion in the previous year. The bottom line has rising year-over-year earnings of $5.15 billion last fiscal year, compared to $2.80 billion in the previous year.

TSM has two beats, one miss and one quarter of in-line earnings during the previous four quarters. Keep a close eye on Intel for better color, but don't expect TSM to hit it out of the park this time.
