This down draft is from the external force not from the fundamental of TXN. I don't know when the correction will be over but if the dust settles, TXN will rebounce very quickly. One good new, the only bear analyst of TXN, Mr. Milton of Brown Brothers, changes his rating of TXN today from strong avoid to strong hold, this is about 3 notch adjustment of his rating.
The stock was up over 111 when I checked Yahoo around 4:40 pm--nearly at Friday's close. Now, 6:45 PM, it shows a loss for the day, down to 101.125 down 1.675 for the day. I realize in heavy trading, quotes must have been delayed, but do you know anything that accounts for a ten point drop in the last few minutes of trading?
