TAIPEI, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Shares of Taiwan chip giant TSMC (2330.TW) rose more than 3% on Friday after the firm posted higher-than-expected profit in the third quarter and flagged tight supplies will likely continue into 2022 amid booming demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The rise compared with a 1.3% increase in the broader market (.TWII).
