TXN Sold Me a Calculator around 1976
A long time ago I bought what was then a state-of-the-art calculator. It was, if my memory is correct, a TI-50. It was amazing because it had a “memory.” I use that term loosely, because compared to my iPhone it was a veritable dunce.
Texas Instruments Now Pays Me
As an owner of TXN shares, I now reap the benefits of the increase in the value of my shares, but I also get money I can use for other purposes. TXN recently declared a substantial increase in their dividends of 13.3%. In a Covid-19 year, that is rather remarkable. It is even better than Microsoft’s recent dividend increase of 9.8%.
I hold 125 shares of TXN. I don’t plan to buy more shares at this time.
