GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Qualcomm Inc

David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm - Apr 14, 2017

The stock was our worst relative performer during the first quarter. While the stock was up nicely (+35%) in 2016 (after a dismal -30% in 2015), it suffered sharp profit-taking following Apple’s lawsuit filed in February. Apple’s lawsuit was filed just days after the Federal Trade Commission, in one of its final acts under the Obama administration, announced that it would sue Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) for its purportedly anti-competitive practices. The FTC alleged that, in the U.S., Qualcomm used its unfair (dominant) supplier of smartphone modems to demand higher patent payments. Apple was specifically called out for allegedly entering into an exclusivity deal with Qualcomm in order to avoid its onerous terms. It’s never fun when your children are fighting amongst themselves, and the same can be said when two of your portfolio children are fighting each other—and quite publicly at that. We have owned Apple since 2005 and have cheered the Company on during their long (and expensive) efforts to protect their IP. We have done the same during our +10-year ownership with Qualcomm’s legal battles as well. To hear each side state their respective cases, quite frankly, one can easily agree with both plaintiffs and defendants. However, we come down on the side that Qualcomm deserves to charge its current IP royalty rates given that they have been the mobile industry’s de facto R&D arm. No doubt Apple has been a prodigious investor in their own R&D, but most smartphone manufacturers are not much more than smartphone assemblers of discrete hardware and software. These lawsuits go right to the heart of Qualcomm’s royalty franchise. Not too surprising then that the stock fell sharply on news of the FTC and Apple lawsuits. In our view, the stock fell too sharply, from $66 to as low as $ 53. At valuations of $55 and below, the market embeds, in our view, a far too onerous settlement with Apple at a new royalty rate that is much too low, in our opinion. The Company’s NXP Semiconductor acquisitions remains on schedule. On the share price weakness, we added to our position in the stock in mid-to-late February.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Qualcomm - Nov 01, 2016

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), a provider of software and semiconductor chips used in mobile phones, boosted the Fund’s return by 67 basis points, as its stock rose 27.9% from $53.57 to $68.50. Investors cheered the company’s progress in China, as it signed licensing agreements with several smartphone manufacturers and its new Snapdragon chips gained market share in the country. In late September, the stock jumped on reports that the company was in talks to acquire NXP Semiconductors, a leading provider of semiconductors to the automotive industry. If the deal occurs, it would be significantly accretive to earnings, as Qualcomm would add a new, fast-growing revenue stream while putting its $31 billion cash balance to work.

David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm - Oct 21, 2016

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) was also a top contributor to performance over the past three months. We saw Qualcomm make meaningful progress on its technology licensing (QTL) front after several quarters of patiently waiting for the Company to capture unpaid royalties in China. Although Qualcomm’s chipset franchise (QCT) usually garners most of the attention for the Company, its high-margin QTL segment actually generates two-thirds to three-quarters of consolidated profitability. So while revenues at Qualcomm grew 4%, operating income grew almost 30%, year-over-year. Although it has taken several quarters to eventually materialize, we think that the “lumpy” nature of QTL revenues does not make Qualcomm’s long-term prospects for monetizing its prolific research and development spend (cumulative $16 billion over the past three years), any less attractive. In our opinion, Qualcomm shares remain underappreciated by the market, trading at just 14X next 12 month earnings. In addition, the Company maintains a fortress-like balance sheet with about $20 billion in net cash. As a valuation thought-experiment, if Qualcomm levered its balance sheet to be at parity with the average S&P 500 company's (excluding financials) net debt-to-operating earnings ratio4, the Company would have close to 35% of its market cap available for redeployment. We continue to expect that the long-term growth of the business will drive the stock higher and help close that gap, but our conviction in the stock is reinforced by the Company’s excellent financial health, which is a byproduct of their superior profitability.

Wedgewood Partners Comments on Qualcomm - Jan 18, 2016

Of note regarding our continued conviction to hold onto Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), we think Qualcomm's underperformance during the quarter was largely attributed to customer compliance issues and increasing regulatory scrutiny. Both pertain to Qualcomm's lucrative licensing segment, which accounts for the majority of the Company's profitability. Qualcomm continues to represent an excellent risk-reward trade-off, with shares trading at historically low multiples. Ample growth catalysts include management's aggressive investment in increasing customer compliance with respect to signing licensing agreements, as well as retaking market share in its still-dominant chipset business.



We think the existential crisis that the market is pricing into Qualcomm’s shares is much too dire. First, China’s “techno-nationalism” has made it notoriously difficult for U.S. technology companies to compete on the Mainland 2. We believe too that Qualcomm’s 2015 settlement with Chinese regulators over licensing practices represents a very unique and attractive new source of high-margin, revenue growth. To date, it has been difficult for Qualcomm to begin collecting, per their settlement. However, during the quarter, the Company announced that they had signed licensing agreements with four of the five largest Chinese mobile device original equipment manufacturers, so we expect to see licensing revenue ramp faster than the market is expecting. Second, we think there is a good probability Qualcomm wins back share at some key chipset accounts, which should bode well for margins, especially as the Company has invested in a nimbler cost-structure. Last, while we can attribute some of Qualcomm’s recent stumbles to a mobile handset industry that is entering a more mature phase of growth, the Company is relatively further along in the process of converting its business model to reflect those realities, and we expect double-digit earnings per share gains over the next few years. We estimate that Qualcomm currently trades at a mid-single digit forward earning per share multiple, adjusted for net cash, which is a substantial discount to both the Russell 1000 Growth Index and S&P 500 Index. We expect continued significant buyback activity over the next several quarters, which should enhance the Company’s per-share growth prospects.

David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm - Oct 15, 2015

We incrementally added to our positions in Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) at the beginning of the quarter as we believe a slowdown in the Company’s chipset franchise (“QCT”) is more than discounted by the market. Further, we think QCT is at an earnings trough, as cost-containment efforts as well as restoration of socket share at key customers (e.g. Samsung) should restore the segment to mid-teen margins. We think Qualcomm’s licensing business (“QTL”) is also being dramatically undervalued. We expect “GDP-plus” revenue growth prospects and monopolistic operating margins well above 80% at QTL, and surmise that the market is assigning this business a single-digit, 2016 EV/EPS multiple, which is particularly attractive relative the “average” S&P 500 business trading in the mid to high teens multiples. We concluded that while the negative fundamental news on Qualcomm has lasted around 12 to 18 months, we think this is more than discounted in the current price and that this Company continues to have secular opportunities to grow earnings in the double-digit range.
