Take Your Position: Texas Instruments, CSX

Monday, 23 Jan 2012 | 3:26 PM ET

The “Fast Money” pros weigh in on two companies reporting after the close today — Texas Instruments and CSX — in our feature called, “Take Your Positions.”

Texas Instruments

Vernon Essi of Needham & Co. had a “hold” rating on the stock.

“You’re not going to see a lot of upside on that March guide. It might be a little better than consensus, but nonetheless I think people are going to sell on the print,” he said, adding that the share price was “a little ahead of itself.”

TXN Down Ahead of Earnings
Semiconductors have been leading the tech rally this year, but Texas Instruments is down today ahead of its earnings report after the bell. Vernon Essi, analyst at Needham & Company, discusses.

Pete Najarian: “I actually think you could see that upside. We could see something closer to $40 over the next few months.”

Steve Grasso: “You don’t want to really overbuy at this point, but I would be buying it on dips.”

CSX

Mike Murphy: “We’re buyers of CSX here.”

Brian Kelly said he would buy, but added that second-derivative coal names were also worth a look.

Pete Najarian: “If you want a real upside, go to KSU instead of CSX.”
