3 stocks to watch on semiconductor drubbing

NXP Semiconductors shares plummeted Thursday after disappointing earnings, taking other names in the chip sector down with it. Opportunities still exist in the segment, but investors need to tread carefully, "Fast Money" traders said.

NXP shed 19 percent of its value a day after posting sales that disappointed Wall Street. Shares of Texas Instruments and Intel, among others, fell on the day.

Trader Tim Seymour said he would not "chase" Texas Instruments or Intel at their current valuations. However, trader Guy Adami noted he would consider buying Texas Instruments on more weakness.
