Texas Instruments technical notes ahead of earnings Price ahead of earnings is close to the 52-week high at $56, which is the top of a recent consolidation pattern. With the trend preceding that pattern bullish, a breakout above the 52-week high would be bullish for price. A minimum upside potential would be to the $60 area based on the height of the pattern. If the news is a disappointment, the reaction on the downside would likely be as robust as upside on a positive surprise. The low of the consolidation zone is at $51.50. Should that level be broken on the downside it would be bearish for future price, with next support at $50.08.
