14:47 EDTNXPIEarnings Watch: Texas Instruments reports amid M&A focus in semiconductor space
Texas Instruments (TXN) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the close on Wednesday, April 22, with a conference call scheduled for 5:30 pm ET. Texas Instruments is a global semiconductor manufacturer operating in four segments: Analog, Embedded Processing, Wireless and Other. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 62c on revenue of $3.2B. The consensus range is 61c-64c for EPS on revenue of $3.18B-$3.21B, according to First Call. On its last earning call, Texas Instruments said it expected Q1 EPS of 57c-67c and revenue of $3.07B-$3.33B. LAST QUARTER: On January 26, Texas Instruments reported adjusted fourth quarter EPS of 69c, which matched consensus expectations at that time. Its Q4 revenue of $3.27B came in just above the consensus forecast of $3.26B. Texas Instruments said its inventory ended the quarter at 117 days and noted on its associated conference call that it believe inventories were at "healthy levels." Texas Instruments also said then that it expected its embedded operating margins to increase. STREET RESEARCH: The day after TI's last quarterly report, Ascendiant raised its price target for Texas Instruments shares to $64 from $56 and reiterated a Buy rating on the stock. The firm attributed the post-earnings slide the stock experienced then to profit taking, rather than a fundamental disappointment. That same week, Argus increased its price target on Texas Instruments to $62 from $54 and said it expected the company's operating trends to continue to strengthen. Argus kept a Buy rating on the shares. Acquiring companies in the semiconductor space "can materially outperform the market," Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis wrote in a note to investors on March 9. At that time, Lipacis identified Texas Instruments, NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), Avago (AVGO), Marvell (MRVL), Maxim Integrated (MXIM), Broadcom (BRCM), Altera (ALTR), and Xilinx (XLNX) as companies that were well-positioned to make acquisitions in the future. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On March 1, NXP Semiconductors and Freescale Semiconductor (FSL) announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which NXP will merge with Freescale in a transaction valuing the combined enterprise at just over $40B. Recent media reports suggested that Intel's (INTC) talks to acquire Altera stalled when the latter wanted more than Intel was willing to pay. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after last quarter's report, Texas Instruments' stock has rallied nearly 7%. In afternoon trading, Texas Instruments gained over 1% to $58.76.

15:16 EDTNXPIGreenlight starts new GM long position, rolls Lorillard short bet to Reynolds
David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital hedge fund said in its latest quarterly letter to investors that it had established new long positions in General Motors (GM), Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) and AerCap Holdings (AER) last quarter. WHAT'S NEW: Greenlight believes GM should benefit from low gas prices, low raw material costs, and its decision to launch share buybacks, Greenlight stated. GM has an excellent chance of beating 2015 EPS expectations, added the firm. Einhorn's group said they found the valuation of Chicago Bridge and Iron, an engineering and construction company with significant exposure to energy, attractive following the stock's decline. Although energy prices may stay low for some time, the company has a significant backlog that should support its earnings for several years, Greenlight stated. Additionally, the market is overestimating how much of the cost overruns for two nuclear energy projects with be shouldered by the company, Greenlight contended. AerCap, the largest publicly traded aircraft leasing company, bought AIG's (AIG) aircraft leasing business last year at a bargain price, Greenlight stated. The combined business will benefit from AerCap's low tax rate, as well as efficiencies, the hedge fund believes. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Greenlight exited its short position in Lorillard (LO). Greenlight noted that it has rolled its short bet on Lorillard into a fresh position in Reynolds American (RAI), since it still believes that the FDA is gearing up to do "something major" in terms of regulation of menthol cigarettes, but is moving "slowly and deliberately" because it anticipates an extremely aggressive industry response. The firm also exited two other short positions because the companies agreed to takeovers: Safeway (SWY) and Freescale Semiconductor (FSL), which has agreed to sell itself to NXP Semicondictors (NXPI).
