Semiconductor stocks are getting a lift from Nvidia's (NVDA) post-earnings highs today, as demand for AI chips sends the stock soaring. Two of these chip stocks include Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NASDAQ:AMD) and Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg. Co. Ltd (NYSE:TSM)

At last glance, AMD was up 9.7% at $118.78, trading at its highest levels since March 2022. The stock had already been moving higher before today's bull gap, on track for its fifth-straight week of gains after bouncing off its 100-day moving average at the $81 level. Year-to-date, the equity is up 82.8%. 

So far today, Advanced Micro Devices stock has seen 476,000 calls and 206,000 puts exchanged, which is triple the amount typically seen at this point. The June 125 call is the most active contract, followed by the weekly 5/26 120-strike call, with new positions being opened at the latter. 

Taiwan Semiconductor stock is also trading at 52-week highs, up 10.8% at $99.94 at last check. The security has had a choppy first half of the year, but has managed a 34.4% year-to-date gain. Options traders are blasting TSM, with 108,000 calls and 51,000 puts across the tape so far -- 10 time the intraday average. The weekly 5/26 100-strike call is the most popular, with new positions being opened there. 

These options traders appear to be in luck. TSM is seeing attractively priced premiums at the moment, per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 30%, which sits in the low 8th percentile of its annual range. Furthermore, the security's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at a 94 out of 100, meaning the chip name has exceeded option traders' volatility expectations during the past year.
