What are Wall Street analysts saying about QUALCOMM stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about QUALCOMM stock:
  • 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe that the growth trajectory and total potential market opportunity of the Pluralsight story warrants a premium multiple. As such, we are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating and $40 price target." (8/1/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Qualcomm reported solid second-quarter fiscal 2019 results with the top and bottom line beating the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate, driven by strength in both the operating segments owing to strong product leadership and operating expense management. The company is likely to benefit significantly from the settlement with Apple. Qualcomm also expects improving business conditions in the second half of fiscal 2019 on the back of new product launches as it aims to redefine the computing and mobile ecosystem across the globe. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past year on average. However, aggressive competition in the mobile phone chipset market is likely to hurt Qualcomm’s profitability. Although the global smartphone market is expected to maintain its momentum over the next three to four years, major portion of this growth is likely to come from the low-cost emerging markets, which may further exert pressure on its margins." (5/6/2019)
  • 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We think Qualcomm will continue to see weakness from the Android market in the second half of this year due to our belief that there will be an inventory correction in the Android market in late C3Q and C4Q. However, we see several catalysts for QCOM in 2H19 as many Chinese OEMs plan to launch their 5G smartphones in China in late C3Q (albeit at small volumes). In addition, we believe Apple (AAPL: Neutral) will begin to use Qualcomm modems again starting in the second half of this year. We maintain our Buy rating and $84 price target. We believe Chinese OEMs, as well as Samsung (SSNLF: NR), will become more aggressive when launching their 5G smartphones in mid-2020. We see Apple launching their regional 5G iPhone in the second half of 2020." (5/2/2019)
