Samsung now the Largest Semiconductor Company

The Korean Stock Exchange recently announced that Samsung
Electronics is now the largest semiconductor company in the world ahead of Intel
Corporation. This morning, Intel Corporation had a market capitalization of
$ 112B USD. Samsung Electronics, on the other hand, closed trading on Friday
with a market cap of $ 120B USD. Though Samsung has clearly made strides to increase
the value of the company, Samsung’s recent leg up on Intel has had much to do
with Intel’s near free-fall in stock prices over the last year.
