Texas Instruments plunged -10% in after-hours trading after 3Q earnings missed analysts' expectations. The company reported a -11.5% drop in quarterly revenue, due to macroeconomic headwinds mounting from the US and China trade war.
"Net income fell to $1.43 billion, or $1.49 per share, in the third quarter ended Sept. 30, from $1.57 billion, or $1.58 per share, a year earlier. Total revenue for the company, whose broad lineup of products makes it a proxy for the chip industry, fell to $3.77 billion from $4.26 billion," Reuters noted.
