Qualcomm (QCOM) (d-w-m) for Monday (7/24/2017)

 

I listened to the Qualcomm Q3’2017 Financial Call on July 19th.  Apple Inc. (AAPL) is allegedly instigating with its assemblers/suppliers to withhold both royalties and even contractually required unit sales reporting to Qualcomm. This makes modelling of current and future quarter royalties income virtually impossible. Qualcomm management believes it has the “high ground” under contract law. Unfortunately, legal battles take a long time to meander thru the US (and global) legal system. Lack of insight into forward earnings, as well as lack of a time line to a resolution has both analysts and the markets bearish. Sentiment is Strongly Bearish.
Surprisingly, lost in the dispute over licensing costs, it should be noted Apple Inc. has multiple revenue streams coming off the backs of Qualcomm’s IP, including non-SEP IP, which, apparently and allegedly, Apple Inc. is using, unlicensed, in Intel powered iPhones.  Apple Inc.’s sales, besides the iPhones, of Apps, music, music videos, movie clips, movies, storage in the cloud …. and more are all dependant on Qualcomm’s IP.  Isn’t Qualcomm’s IP MORE valuable to Apple Inc.’s revenue streams … than a Qualcomm customer that is just selling phones to call and text?  Pretty sure that is a YES!  I am also pretty sure, Apple Inc. doesn’t want jurors that can do math.

The Daily, Weekly, Monthly, (d-w-m) Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM) chart analysis review below is a Bull/Bear, PROs, and CONs, buyholdsellshort chart analysis with the same capital conserving cautionary and pull back suggestions I have learned to appreciate and use to manage my investments with the RISK Reward Ratio.  As I own shares of Qualcomm, I want to know the good, the bad, and the ugly, the buyholdsellshort because it’s my money.  Occasionally, as in the Qualcomm chart analyses you’ll read below, the capital conserving cautionary and pull back suggestions can diverge from the sellshort tone to cautioning against price gains and rallies (highlighted in green) … that could/would be referred to as contrarian investing suggestions.
I hope sharing my homework helps you with yours.
