What are Wall Street analysts saying about QUALCOMM stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about QUALCOMM stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Qualcomm is focused on retaining its position in the chipset market and mobile connectivity with several technological achievements and innovative product launches. It offers the flexibility and scalability needed for broad and fast 5G adoption through commercialization by OEMs. Qualcomm is also likely to help users experience seamless transition to super-fast 5G networks, delivering low-power resilient multi-gigabit connectivity with best-in-class security. While the company has expanded its leadership to the high tiers with Snapdragon 700, Snapdragon 800 solutions should continue defining the premium tier benchmarks. In addition, it is poised to benefit significantly from the settlement with Apple. However, Qualcomm is likely to face softness in demand from China with Huawei gaining prominence in the local market and coronavirus impacting sales." (4/7/2020)
  • 2. 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)
  • 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)
