Abstract

This paper aims to discuss the changes in the IT development industry under the influence of the worldwide pandemic. The worldwide pandemic has had a very significant impact on economies all over the world. In this context, the result and the changes produced by the IT industry, which has been strongly developed recently, are undoubtedly significant. With the impact of the epidemic, all countries need to consider the spread of the epidemic. This has led to the temporary closure of schools, stores in many countries. People need to use the Internet to work, study and shop. This has made people more dependent on the IT industry. While most industries are slowing down due to the epidemic, the IT industry is growing more rapidly due to people's needs. This paper compares the WACCs of Intel, Qualcomm, and Advanced Micro Devices for the first quarter of 2023 and examines why the WACCs differ from a consumer perspective. This paper also discusses how to observe and invest in these three companies from an investor's perspective.
