UPDATE - Needham & Company downgraded Texas Instruments (NASDAQ: TXN) from Buy to Hold.

Needham analyst said, "Per our earnings preview published today entitled "Don't Expect a Linear Correlation this Earnings Season" we believe that the
recent boost in share price and investor sentiment in our universe is applicable to select names and not the overall Analog/Mixed Signal group. Specifically with TXN shares we do not anticipate there to be much upside in store for investors when Q4 earnings are reported on Monday; rather we expect an in line print for Q4 and the 1.5% Q/Q consensus revenue decline may in fact turn out to be flat Q/Q or, optimistically, flat to up 2%. This is not enough, in our view, and we believe investors will be selling on the news. Additionally, TXN has exceeded our prior price target of $31."
