    Current return on equity exceeded its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of strength within the company. When compared to other companies in the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry and the overall market, TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INC’s return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.

    Texas Instruments Inc. (NASDAQ: TXN) has done well, along with the broader market and semiconductor stock rally. With a gain of 11% so far in 2017, its performance is quite similar to that of the Van Eck Semiconductors index ETF and the Nasdaq 100. Still, that is twice the gain of the S&P 500.

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INC reported flat earnings per share in the most recent quarter. This company has reported somewhat volatile earnings recently. But, we feel it is poised for EPS growth in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INC increased its bottom line by earning $2.58 versus $1.92 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.72 versus $2.58).

    We rate TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INC as a Buy with a ratings score of A+. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.
