Wrong again.This is simply wrong. Japan just approved another 9 month supply for Samsung. That means they have 9 months to secure even more supply, and to bring other suppliers up to speed. Honestly, the global market would mobilize to protect Samsung's chip and screen manufacturing if there was a real threat.
9 month thingie you mention was just for the photoresist.
Samsung and other semi-conductor manufacturers in S.Korea can not and will not get their hands on hydrogen flouride from Japan ever again. Period.
By the way, S.Korea just got taken off from Japan's white list status today and was placed in a new category below Afghanistan, N.Korea, Iran, etc. (S.Korea is at the bottom of page)
You really shouldn't be risking your precious cash on electronics & automobiles from S.Korea now.
Global market is shifting supply chain to US, Taiwan, Japan & China, so you have nothing to worry about.
Don't forget your friend president Moon who is out to destroy conglomerates in S.Korea.
