I am guessing that TXN will announce better than
expected earnings for the most recently completed quarter.
However, I also think there is a good chance that they
could also warn that the next two quarters could see a
slowdown because of the Y2K issue because of temporary
order slowdowns (just like LXK, UIS, and XRX have).
After seeing what has happened to LXK, UIS, XRX and
others, I don't think I would want to own this stock
going into tomorrow.
was you left for collins radio, as collins had a
full court recruiting campaign about that same time
frame for ti people. was your austin job with ti ? if
so was it the circuits group ? I hope your .44 is
wrong, its got be better for stock to make a run. im
I bid on an engineering tech position only to be
told I didnt have enough OVERALL fab experience..I
accepted this and didnt say anything till a few weeks
later when I ran into a friend (male friend) that I had
worked with in DSEG...he was given the job with NO fab
experience at all....
You hit the nail on the head Robin. The odds of
Intel capturing a large percentage of TI's DSP market
share during the next few years is almost nil. I am not
saying one should not invest in Intel. Intel is a great
company and will probably be a great investment, but if
you invest in Intel because you think they are going
to knock TI out of the DSP business, you are
spinning in the wind.
