CIBC World Keeps 'Buy' on Texas Instruments
CIBC World reiterates buy on Texas Instruments (TXN ) after the company was named the main supplier of digital subscriber line chipsets to a unit of Siemens.
Analyst Quinn Bolton thinks the contract with Siemen's Efficient Networks unit is worth about $55 million to $65 million yearly. While this is less than 1% of Texas Instruments's revenues, Bolton says it should provide upside to his $121 million estimate in total broadband revenues in 2002, and will help TI to achieve his $330 million revenue estimate for 2003.
More importantly, he says the win validates the company's digitial subscriber line technology as a premier solution, and gives another example of TI's ability to penetrate the competitive broadband markets with its digital service provider and analog chipset solutions. Bolton sees $0.30 2002 earnings per share and $0.75 for 2003; he is keeping his $52 target.
