    AAPL submitted to SCOTUS "again"?? They got denied "again"... if this doesn't show desperation, then I don't know what does. I think they realize they need these patents for multiple products and future innovation... oh well, looks like QCOM will benefit here as well.

    It has gotten to the pt that any further aapl litigation to qcom hurts aapl more than qcom. Boy this does not come easy, but justice wins in this country eventually.

    Verizon, Qualcomm and Razer to release the first handheld cloud gaming device using 5G. Pixel phone may be going back to qcom (not that it matters but principle matters). One Plus phones upgrading to QCOM high end gen2 chips this year, unfortunately Apple still using qcom in coming years but with an expanded more expensive chip, auto pipeline tripling since investor day, India rolling out massive 5g infrastructure to support the digital transformation, Qcom sampling OPEN RAN which will take share from those like Marvell... I do not think Qualcomm is sitting around while we go through this market correction. They appear to be accelerating into 2023. Expect Q4 to be very good and growth guided in 2023.

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday again declined to hear Apple Inc's ( AAPL )
    Loading...
    Loading...
    bid to revive an effort to cancel three Qualcomm Inc ( QCOM )
    smartphone patents despite the settlement of the underlying dispute between the two tech giants.
    The justices left in place a lower court's decision against Apple ( AAPL )
    after similarly turning away in June the company's appeal of a lower court ruling in a closely related case challenging two other Qualcomm ( QCOM )
    patents.
    Qualcomm ( QCOM )
    sued Apple ( AAPL )
    in San Diego federal court in 2017, arguing that its iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches infringed a variety of mobile-technology patents. That case was part of a broader global dispute between the tech giants.
    Apple ( AAPL )
    challenged the validity of the patents at issue in this case at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
    The companies settled their underlying fight in 2019, signing an agreement worth billions of dollars that let Apple ( AAPL )
    continue using Qualcomm ( QCOM )
    chips in iPhones. The settlement included an Apple ( AAPL )
    license to thousands of Qualcomm ( QCOM )
    patents, but allowed the patent-board proceedings to continue.
    The board upheld the patents in 2020, and Apple ( AAPL )
    appealed to the patent-specialist U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Cupertino, California-based Apple ( AAPL )
    argued it had proper legal standing to appeal because San Diego-based Qualcomm ( QCOM )
    could sue again after the license expires, potentially as soon as 2025.
    A Federal Circuit three-judge panel, in a 2-1 ruling, dismissed the case last year for a lack of standing, finding that Apple's ( AAPL )
    risk of being sued again was speculative and the challenge would not affect its payment obligations under the settlement.
    Qualcomm ( QCOM )
    has again argued that Apple ( AAPL )
    has not shown a concrete injury to justify the appeal, just like in the "materially identical" case that the high court rejected.

    Just listened to Tom Lee on CNBC. First guy I have heard who gets it. Said invest in technology companies creating efficiency as new economy will be based on digital assets. He also said all this pain goes away when inflation starts improving which he expects to see within the next several months. He said it is same as 82 (inflation related market drop) and recovery will be quick and strong. Rest is noise. I may sign up for his letter...as this guy gets it.

    I tend to agree with LaJollaRodgie below, some key macro economic market moving data is coming up. Key dates include the CPI number Oct 13th followed by Fed's FOMC Nov 3rd. Both prior to the election. The numbers that matter for macro markets will be the dollar and inflation. It really boils down to that - ignore the noise on everything else. A strong dollar destabilizes the global economies and inflation causes interest rate hikes which causes the strong dollar. We have been in a bear market now for 11 months (Naz) and 10 months (S&P).. Bear markets typically last between 6 and 20 months depending on recession. CPI is a lagging indicator and there are many signs that lumber, oil, used cars, etc. have been coming down which should show up in Oct numbers. The dollar is near hitting a ceiling at 120... which by the way is much lower than it was in 2003 and 1981... the actions the Fed has taken is close to what Volker did in the 80s and worked very well and they had it MUCH worse then. Then to LaJollaRodgie's point, the election is very much dependent on what happens the 13th and Nov 3rd... so you would think there will be some influence happening there (tin hat on) from the government in power who desperately needs things to calm down in the markets. So optimistically, we may have a couple more weeks of downward pressure before we possibly see a spring to the upside. Honestly, there isn't much room for many stocks to go lower - even the defensive stocks (e.g. PG) are at 2 year lows... so something is going to give and soon I think. Otherwise, things get too bad to recover from (which is always a risk). Interest rates are not crazy, it is actually healthy to have them in the 4% range going forward - sets up a good environment for the economy. The new economy will be driven by efficiency and the digital transformation - globally. So investing in stocks that are involved in this will be the right move as they will become the next wall street darlings once everyone figures this out. These are my thoughts for what it is worth - watch the CPI number and watch the dollar for weakness to trigger a reversal.

    this behavior is not to do with head winds and value, it is more to with how hedge funds and MM can take advantage of the options market.

    Agree. I’ll also add that while today is green, there’s no conviction in the form of volume so just hangin in there

    QCOM makes approx 3b per quarter. They choose to make acquisitions, they choose to buy back shares, they choose to pay a dividend. If QCOM wanted to be debt free they would. 15B is not a lot of debt for a company that can make 3B cash flow in 1 quarter if they choose to.

    So much false information (very dated) out there.. this article states that QCOM exposure to Apple is 20 - 25% of revenue. Their exposure is about half of that... not to mention their 2023 numbers had a fraction of Apple included - even though, as we have learned, it will be higher now...

    This drop was inevitable and we probably have another 10%-15% to go. WS has zero trust in this president and his administration. Europe is already in recession and by January they could see their worse recession in decades. Inflation rate in Europe hit double digits. So I guess the question is why am I still holding such a large position in QCOM? Because long term investing is not about timing the market but adding when others are panic selling.
