NXP Semiconductors, Diamondback Energy And More: CNBC’s ‘Final Trades’


On CNBC’s “Halftime Report Final Trades,” Steve Weiss of Short Hills Capital Partners named Bitcoin BTC/USD as his final trade.

The price of Bitcoin surged above $50,000 for the first time in over two years. Major cryptocurrencies moved higher, rebounding swiftly after a temporary setback after the launch of spot ETFs on Jan. 11.

Jim Lebenthal of Cerity Partners said NXP Semiconductors N.V. NXPI surged to a new all-time high.

NXP reported fourth-quarter adjusted earnings of $3.71 per share which beat the analyst consensus estimate of $3.63 by 2.2% and represents a 0.54% decrease over earnings of $3.73 per share year-over-year. The company reported quarterly sales of $3.42 billion, beating the analyst consensus estimate of $3.40 billion by 0.65% and representing a 3.32% increase over sales of $3.31 billion from the same period last year.
