Broadcom’s stock stands to benefit from a number of tailwinds. For example, the Chips Act seeks to promote the domestic U.S. semiconductor industry. As a result, it may see Broadcom get a helping hand toward its research and manufacturing projects. Furthermore, demand is building for Broadcom in the renewable energy sector, and the VMware acquisition should help diversify the business.
