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, "Regulatory disputes and aggressive competition in the mobile phone chipset market continue to hurt Qualcomm. The company recorded significant decline in licensing fees in second-quarter fiscal 2018 due to the ongoing dispute with Apple and other contract manufacturers. Headwinds from weaker industry conditions have further dented margins. A major part of the growth in the smartphone market in the future is likely to come from the low-cost emerging markets, which will exert additional pressure on its profitability. Moreover, Qualcomm's proposed acquisition of NXP Semiconductors is still awaiting regulatory approvals from the Chinese authorities, negating most of the positives related to the deal. The stock underperformed the industry in the past six months. However, Qualcomm has been trying to retain its leadership in 5G, chipset market and mobile connectivity with multiple technological achievements and launches." (4/30/2018)
  • 2. Royal Bank of Canada analysts commented, "Take Two reported F2Q18 earnings handily beating Street. Not only did GTA continue strong into the quarter (now expecting FY18 GTA growth), newly released NBA 2K saw better sales, better engagement, and better monetization than the prior year. With recurrent comprising 42% of net sales, TTWO’s model is seeing good leverage with (NG) operating margins of 33%. Management offered updated FY guidance including taking net cash generation up to approximately $300M (from $200M)— for a year without a major non-sport release. This performance is driven by high player engagement with the company’s premium content. With annual earnings volatility decreasing, a growing mobile business, ability to leverage secular tailwinds, and an upcoming mega-year, we are very comfortable reiterating our Outperform rating and $112 PT." (11/8/2017)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "With Model 3 runrate target of 5k/week pushed out a quarter, we continue to believe GM is the key metric to track on shares. We believe TSLA is fundamentally a technology company and a vertically integrated manufacturer. We believe return on capital is tied directly to TSLA’s ability to manufacture cost-effectively while maintaining ASP. With 4Q17 GM guided lower Q/Q on slower than expected Model 3 ramp, we believe TSLA has a challenging road ahead to reach projected runrates and margins given recent price declines and complexity of automation in the Model 3 manufacturing process. We expect bulls to focus on ADAS progress and look toward 1Q18 production, the benchmark for Model 3." (11/2/2017)
