TI Tops Forecasts

Texas Instruments reported solid second-quarter results after the close on Monday, beating Wall Street estimates just about any way you slice them.

TI reported a 9% sequential jump in revenues to $3.24 billion, and earnings of 32 cents a share came in ahead of 29-cent forecasts. Gross margins of 47% were also better than expected, and the company reported 10.7% sequential growth in orders to $3.4 billion. The company also raised its dividend and announced a $2 billion stock buyback, and raised guidance for the third quarter.

“Our strong growth underscores the importance of DSP and analog to a wide range of electronics equipment,” TI CEO Rich Templeton said in a statement.

TXN shares jumped 4% after hours.

Also after the close, shares of Netflix , Avaya , J2 Global and JDA surged after the companies beat estimates.
