Wiz walks awayCloud security startup Wiz rejected a $23 billion acquisition offer from Google, opting instead to pursue an IPO. The move allows Warner Bros. to retain some of its NBA broadcasting rights. However, the NBA may not want Warner Bros. as a media rights partner and could reject the company's matching rights, which could lead to a legal tussle.

But for those looking for alternatives, UBS has refreshed its list of "highest conviction and most investable" tech stocks in Asia. So far, UBS' Asian Super 8 has gained 8.3% since its inception in February, beating the 6.7% returned by the benchmark MSCI Asia-Pacific index.

Tencent has been making headlines recently, with several analysts bullish, including Goldman Sachs , which included the stock in its conviction list.

Apple supplier Foxconn reported a 72% rise in first-quarter profit, boosted by strong demand for AI servers and coming off a low base from the period a year earlier, but the growth was lower than expected. While the profit missed the T$29.31 billion forecast by analysts, it was Foxconn's third consecutive quarterly profit rise. In the first quarter, consumer electronics including smartphones accounted for 48% of its revenue while cloud and networking products, including servers, contributed 28%. Apple's quarterly results and forecast beat modest expectations this month, nd CEO Tim Cook said revenue growth would return in the current quarter. Foxconn's shares have risen 65% so far this year, driven by its rosy AI outlook, far outperforming a 17% gain for the broader market.

The company, which trades as Hon Hai Precision Industry in Taiwan, recorded a first-quarter revenue of 1.32 trillion New Taiwan dollars ($41.2 billion), which was also 28.58% lower compared to the fourth quarter of last year. It was also below economists' expectations in an LSEG poll. However, the company expects revenue to grow in the second quarter, despite noting that it "remains a traditional off-peak season."

Apple supplier Foxconn sees strong 2024 as Q4 beats forecasts

The outlook has turned rosier since Foxconn Chairman Young Liu said in November the world's largest contract electronics maker had "relatively conservative and neutral" expectations for 2024. The profit beat a T$43.52 billion LSEG SmartEstimate, which gives greater weight to forecasts from analysts who are more consistently accurate. In the fourth quarter, consumer electronics including smartphones accounted for 58% of revenue while cloud and networking products, including servers, contributed 20%. Foxconn said it expects revenue for the first quarter to slightly decline from a year earlier, with revenue for smart computer electronics also likely to drop in the period. Apple last month reported sales and profit that beat Wall Street estimates, powered by growth in its iPhone business though its China sales missed analysts' targets.

REUTERS/Ann Wang/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsTAIPEI, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Taiwan's Foxconn (2317.TW), the world's largest contract electronics maker and a major Apple (AAPL.O) supplier, on Tuesday raised its outlook for the fourth quarter on strong year-end sales for the holiday peak season. The fourth quarter is traditionally the hot season for Taiwan's tech companies as they race to supply smartphones, tablets and other electronics to major vendors such as Apple for the year-end holiday period in Western markets. "Therefore, the outlook for the fourth quarter should be better than the original guidance for 'significant growth'", the company added, without elaborating. For components and other products, revenue in November showed strong year-on-year growth "due to increasing allocations in smart consumer electronics products and rising shipments in auto components", it added.

Foxconn is still running with difficult status quo

HONG KONG, Nov 27 (Reuters Breakingviews) - Terry Gou is not running for Taiwan’s presidency after all. Nonetheless, the $45 billion Apple (AAPL.O) supplier’s continuing push to move production outside of China leaves it firmly on frontlines of rising cross-strait tensions. Foxconn grew into the biggest employer in China, with more than 1 million workers at its peak and a top contract manufacturer for global brands. Foxconn is out of the election spotlight but it still has to grapple with an awkward status quo. CONTEXT NEWSTerry Gou, the billionaire founder of electronics maker Foxconn, announced on Nov. 24 that he will be withdrawing from Taiwan’s presidential election next month.

Taipei/Hong Kong CNN —Terry Gou, the billionaire founder of major Apple supplier Foxconn, withdrew from the race to become Taiwan’s next president on Friday, just hours before the deadline to formally register as a candidate. “I have never yielded in the battlefield of international business,” Gou said in a statement, without providing a specific reason for the retreat. “For the future of the Republic of China, choosing to yield is all the love I can give to my homeland,” Gou added, referencing Taiwan’s official name. Gou founded Foxconn, established as Hon Hai Precision Industry in Taiwan, in 1974. Shortly after he announced his bid, Chinese state media reported that Foxconn was under investigation by authorities in China over land use and tax concerns.

Foxconn said in a statement that with the second half of the year a "traditional peak season" for consumer tech products, operations "will ramp up sequentially", sticking to its outlook given last month. "Significant growth outlook in the fourth quarter compared to the third quarter remains unchanged," it added, without elaborating. Foxconn releases third-quarter earnings on Nov. 14, when it will give more details on its outlook.

China’s slowing economy could soon become a major talking point for U.S. companies as they begin to report third-quarter earnings. Illustration: Elizabeth SmelovChina’s surprise investigation into Apple supplier Foxconn, a key link in the iPhone supply chain, may be intended to send a message. The one Apple and its suppliers actually receive might do China more harm than good. Chinese authorities have launched tax and land-use probes into subsidiaries of Foxconn , formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry , the company confirmed last week. That is surprising since Foxconn, which is the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer, has long had an amicable relationship with China—and is one of the biggest employers in the country.

Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry, is a huge contributor to China's employment and economic growth. Given how important Foxconn is to China's economy, it's a sign that Beijing is willing to make some sacrifices in its economy for political reasons, Liu said.

But three months out from the election, Gou, whose net worth is estimated by Forbes at $6.7 billion, has gone to ground. China claims Taiwan as its own and believes Lai, who leads opinion polls, is a separatist bent on a formal declaration of independence. Since the Global Times report came out, Gou's team has declined to comment, referring questions to Foxconn itself. Gou remains a lauded figure at Foxconn after stepping down as chairman in 2019, referred to reverentially as "the founder".

Yet, coming less than 100 days ahead of Taiwan’s presidential election in January, it is difficult to see surprise tax raids on Foxconn as having no geopolitical implications. For multinationals, the tax audits expose Foxconn’s difficulty in navigating the global business environment as tensions across the Taiwan Strait escalate. For global onlookers anxious to reduce their Chinese dependency, Foxconn could be the most telling case on the true cost of reshoring. The audits come less than three months ahead of Taiwan’s presidential election in January 2024 and amid Foxconn’s drive to expand its production outside China. Foxconn’s founder Terry Gou, who stepped down as company chief in 2019, is running as an independent candidate in Taiwan’s upcoming presidential election.

REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsNEW YORK, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Electric vehicle company Lordstown Motors received U.S. bankruptcy court approval Wednesday to sell its manufacturing assets to a new company affiliated with its founder and former CEO Stephen Burns for $10.2 million. LAS Capital, majority-owned by Burns, will acquire Lordstown's intellectual property, business records, and machinery including assembly lines for electric vehicle motors and batteries. The sale does not include any rights to pursue legal claims against Lordstown's directors, officers or equity owners, which will remain with the bankrupt company, Lordstown Motors' attorney David Turetsky said at the court hearing. Several investor groups have already brought claims against Lordstown and its directors, alleging that the electric truck startup misled consumers and investors about its ability to ramp up electric vehicle production.

"The fourth quarter should see significant growth compared to the third quarter," it added, without elaborating. Foxconn, formally called Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, said revenue last month reached T$660.7 billion ($20.46 billion), down 19.7% year-on-year but soaring 60.1% from August. Revenue in its smart consumer electronics products, including smartphones, saw strong growth month-on-month "due to new product launches in September", Foxconn said. Foxconn is the world's biggest iPhone assembler, but has been trying to diversify into electric vehicles. It added that September year-on-year revenue for cloud and networking products, which includes servers, declined due to "conservative customer pull-in".

Even if the sale generates enough money for a shareholder payout, Lordstown proposed to pay nothing to the 300,000 preferred equity shares held by its estranged former business partner Foxconn. Lordstown alleged that Foxconn purchased only $30 million of the $100 million in preferred equity shares contemplated by the disputed investment agreement. Foxconn also purchased $22.7 million of Lordstown's common shares, owning about 8.4% of the company's equity, according to court documents. Foxconn had asked a U.S. bankruptcy judge to dismiss Lordstown's bankruptcy, a request that the judge denied on Aug. 28.
