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 feats and innovative product launches. The company is focused on helping users experience a seamless transition to super-fast 5G networks, delivering low-power resilient multi-gigabit connectivity with best-in-class security. Qualcomm raised the bar for driverless cars with the launch of a first-of-its-kind automotive platform — Snapdragon Ride — which enables automakers to transform vehicles into self-driving cars using AI. However, the company is likely to face softness in demand from China with Huawei gaining prominence in the local market and coronavirus impacting sales. It expects macroeconomic uncertainty to make a radical impact on device shipment. Competition from low-cost manufacturers is another concern." (6/12/2020)
