Chinese Chipmakers Surge After U.S. Pushes for More Industry Curbs
(Bloomberg) — Washington’s latest move to restrain Beijing from fostering its chipmaking industry is powering China’s semiconductor stocks as the U.S. restrictions could fire up support for homegrown technology.
China chipmakers were one of the few bright spots in the markets Wednesday after Bloomberg News reported that the U.S. is pushing the Netherlands to ban ASML Holding NV from selling technology to China that’s essential in making a large chunk of the world’s chips. That and better-than expected earnings spurred a rally in chip stocks in China, with investors seeing U.S. restrictions accelerating sales for domestic companies as tech businesses seek onshore substitutes.
