18:27 EDTMUSemiconductor stocks under pressure after TI, Qualcomm report financial results
Semiconductor stocks are under pressure after earnings reports from Texas Instruments (TXN) and Qualcomm (QCOM). TEXAS INSTRUMENTS: TI reported first quarter results that were lower than analyst expectations, and gave second quarter guidance below consensus estimates. In its Q1 earnings press release, Texas Instruments said its outlook for Q2 is for earnings per share between 60c-70c and revenue in the range of $3.12B-$3.38B. "Our estimates assume continuing weakness in our communications equipment and personal electronics markets, particularly for wireless infrastructure equipment and PCs, respectively. We also do not expect a near-term rebound in foreign currency exchange rates. The annual effective tax rate for 2015 is expected to be about 30%." QUALCOMM: Qualcomm reported Q2 results that were better than analyst's average estimates, but lowered its fiscal year 2015 EPS and revenue views. Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf said, "While we remain confident in the significant growth opportunities ahead, we are reducing our QCT outlook for fiscal 2015, primarily due to the increased impact of customer share shifts within the premium tier and a decline in our share at a large customer." PRICE ACTION: In after-hours trading, shares of Texas Instruments are down over 6%, while Qualcomm shares are down almost 3%. Other publicly traded companies in the space include AMD (AMD), Intel (INTC), Marvell (MRVL), Microchip (MCHP), Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA), Altera (ALTR), Xilinx (XLNX), and Maxim Integrated (MXIM).

Baird raised its price target on Hilton (HLT) to $33 from $30 ahead of its Q1 earnings report. The firm cited in-line peer valuation despite better growth expectations, additional asset monetization initiatives, and the potential for Blackstone (BX) to sell its shares, which would remove an overhang and boost liquidity. Baird reiterated its Outperform rating on Hilton.

05:59 EDTHLTHilton REIT spinoff could add $3.50/share in value, says UBS
UBS analysts Robin Farley and Arpine Kocharyan say a tax-free spinoff of Hilton's owned hotel properties, which represent 31%-32% of the hotel chain's EBITDA, could create $3.00-$3.50 per share in value. The analysts explain in a note to investors this morning that while an owned portfolio offers the greatest upside in an upcycle, investors may prefer exposure to the more defensive and stable earnings stream created by a spinoff. They raised their price target for shares of Hilton to $35 from $33 and keep a Buy rating on the name. The stock closed yesterday down 21c to $30.27.
