Shares of chip foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing fell from near record highs after it boosted both its capital-spending and revenue growth forecasts for 2021.

Amazon.com founder and Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said the company needs a better vision for its employees after a recent vote among Alabama warehouse workers who rejected unionization.

Chinese electric-car maker XPeng recently tested its autonomous-driving software by sending a fleet of its cars on a 2,200-mile trip from Guangzhou to Beijing, logging 0.71 human-operator interventions per 100 km (62 miles) -- a new benchmark for self-driving cars, the company claimed.
