Factors to consider
The strength of Texas Instruments’ product portfolio and expanding manufacturing capabilities should be reflected in its upcoming quarterly results.
Strengthening momentum in the analog and embedded processing segments likely contributed to Texas Instrument’s performance in the fourth quarter.
The company’s robust signal chain and power product lines are expected to have continued to contribute to analog segment revenue growth in the quarter under discussion.
The upward trend in personal electronics, due to the growing demand for electronic gadgets for remote work, learning and entertainment amid the ongoing pandemic, is likely to have led to a growth in the company’s revenue generated from the personal electronics market in the forthcoming quarter.
The continued rebound in the auto industry should have been a tailwind in the fourth quarter.
Solid momentum across key sectors should have continued to support the company’s performance in the industrial market during the quarter under review.
The company’s significant investments in growth paths and competitive advantages should have been positive.
Texas Instrument’s continued returns to shareholders should have acted as tailwinds. Its deepening aimed at accelerating the generation of free cash flow was probably another positive element. The impacts of all of these factors should be reflected in the company’s fourth quarter results.
However, uncertainties related to the coronavirus pandemic should have weighed on TXN during the quarter under review. In addition, the smoothness in space of the communication equipment should have been of concern.
