Analysts' Thoughts

Texas Instruments had strung together an impressive 15-year streak of dividend increases, and the stock has a payout ratio of 56%. The company historically announces its dividend increases mid-October and this year’s increase could come as early as this week. The stock has already appreciated 37% on the year and is currently trading just below its all-time high. TXN will also announce earnings soon, with the company’s quarterly report set for October 22 with analysts expecting a profit of $1.42 per share. Last year the company boosted its dividend by a massive 24% to $0.77. With the current payout ratio the company is likely to announce another big increase, but probably not as big as last year’s increase. Look for the quarterly distribution to rise to around $0.90 for an increase of 16.8% and the stock to trade ex-dividend at the end of the month.
