Guru Investment Theses on Qualcomm Inc

Jerome Dodson Comments on Qualcomm - Oct 31, 2018

Turning to the winners, the Fund’s best performer was Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), the leading supplier of telecommunications chips found in virtually every smartphone and wireless device in the world. During the quarter, the stock went from $56.12 to $72.03, while yielding a total return of 29.5% and adding 254 bps to the Fund’s return.

For over a year, Qualcomm had been in discussionsnwith NXP Semiconductor to acquire the latter, but the Chinese government refused to approve the transaction, so on July 26, Qualcomm withdrew its $44 billion offer. Interestingly enough, the stock raced higher once uncertainty over the deal’s closing was lifted, and management used the funds to buy back shares of the company.

David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm - Oct 12, 2018

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) was a top contributor relative to the Russell 1000 Growth Index; after the Company reported substantial upside in their licensing business and good execution in semiconductor chipsets. In addition, Qualcomm embarked on a significant share repurchase program, which we estimate to be larger than 25% of the quarter-ending market capitalization.



We think the Company should be a long-term beneficiary of (and benefactor to) the rapidly increasing need for wireless data, not only at the consumer level, but increasingly in industrial and enterprise applications as wireless networks across the globe upgrade to bandwidth-friendly, 5G standards over the next several years.

David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm - Apr 16, 2018

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) was a top detractor during the first quarter. Shares retreated after President Trump issued an order to block any attempt by Broadcom to acquire Qualcomm shares or stage a proxy contest, per research from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CIFIUS). As best as we can tell, given the limited public disclosures, CFIUS speculated that any change in control from Qualcomm to Broadcom could pose a risk to the national security of the United States. Specifically, CFIUS claimed that Qualcomm’s research and development (R&D) efforts were critical to the U.S.’ leadership in the development of global wireless communications standards, and worried that any efforts by Broadcom to defund that R&D risked a “reduction in Qualcomm’s long-term technological competitiveness and 17 influence in standard setting [which] would significantly impact U.S. national security,” especially vis a vis China.5

While we’re not surprised that this deal was terminated, we are surprised that it was terminated in this manner. First, as we have frustratingly witnessed, regulators the worldover – including our own U.S. FTC – have pressured Qualcomm’s business model, and therefore R&D, for years, either through fiat and/or lawsuit. Second, Apple (one of Qualcomm’s largest customers) has indemnified and compelled its Chinese contract manufacturers to withhold several billion dollars in very high margin payments to Qualcomm over the past 15 or so months with little or no pushback from U.S. regulators. In addition, Huawei – a quasi-Chinese SOE – has mimicked Apple’s behavior and withheld – what we estimate to be – several hundred million in high margin revenue dollars over the same timeframe – again, no regulators seem to have a problem with this. So, it makes us wonder why CFIUS and U.S. POTUS decided that Broadcom’s proposed ~$80 per share offer for Qualcomm represents the most intolerable potential risk to the national security of the United States, when clearly Qualcomm has already been pressured by the actual activities of governments, including the U.S. In fact, we’d argue that the actions (and inactions) of regulators, particularly during the past 15 months, are what precipitated Broadcom’s attempt at unlocking growth and value at Qualcomm.

Despite this detour, we will continue to be patient with our Qualcomm ownership, as we think many investors have become overly negative. For example, it is consensus to assume close to zero revenues from Apple and Huawei over the next year, and maybe longer. However, Apple (and we suspect Huawei) is accruing expenses for a potential settlement with Qualcomm. While that might be an accounting necessity, we think it’s also indicative of a real probability. Second, Qualcomm has set several hundred commercial precedents with handset OEMs, most recently with Samsung – the largest handset OEM by units – and offered similar licensing terms to Apple. So we are highly skeptical Apple is being treated unfairly, despite its claims. Once these commercial arrangements are settled, we expect Qualcomm’s longer-term organic growth to be driven by the global shift to 5G standards, where Qualcomm has dominant technological positioning. Further, we think there continues to be a high probability that the Company’s acquisition of NXP Semiconductor will get approved in the coming months, which could lead to sizable earnings per share accretion.

Leith Wheeler Comments on Qualcomm - Mar 09, 2018

After a tumultuous year of battling Apple over licensing payments, shares of Qualcomm Inc. (+25.2%) rebounded in the fourth quarter as rumors began to swirl that Broadcom was interested in acquiring the company. In November, Broadcom officially offered to buy Qualcomm for $70/ share of cash and stock. Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) rejected the offer, saying it dramatically undervalues the company and setting the stage for a potential proxy battle. Shares of Qualcomm remain attractive at less than 14 times earnings per share with a 3.5% dividend yield compared to the overall market of 18.5 times and 1.8%, respectively.

David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm - Oct 16, 2017

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM)’s stock continues to be stuck in lawsuit purgatory. Ironies abound. A judge says Apple doesn’t have to pay Qualcomm, even though Apple admits they owe Qualcomm at least $4 per phone. The FTC says Qualcomm is violating antitrust, even though the head of the FTC admits Qualcomm isn’t violating anti-trust. Both Companies have been quite public in their respective legal positions. Apple is adamant about letting a judge decide on a fair price (or royalty rate) from them to pay for Qualcomm’s technology. Qualcomm is just as adamant that they will once again go to great lengths to defend what they believe is a fair market price for their technology. The public posturing from Apple’s CEO Cook seems to imply that Apple is in no hurry to reach an out-of-court settlement. Qualcomm’s CEO Mollenkopf continues to expect an out -of-court settlement.

Our main position in holding the stock throughout this turmoil is that we cannot conceive that a U.S. court (judge) would rule that a U.S. company’s patent estate can be rendered virtually worthless. In addition, at the stock’s current valuation, the market, in our view, has priced in either an onerous settlement with Apple or an onerous settlement that for all practical purposes emasculates Qualcomm’s cash-cow royalty business. We believe either extreme is unlikely. Furthermore, the risk/reward for Qualcomm’s stock (currently in the low $50’s), again in our view, is significantly asymmetric to the upside, particularly in a world were other notable semiconductor companies such as NVidia and Broadcom sport market caps of over $110 billion and over $105 billion, respectively – and both on lower revenues and profits than Qualcomm.

Last, we believe that the market is giving little benefit for the earnings accretion of the Company’s planned year-end closing of their +$47 billion acquisition of NXP Semiconductor. The Company has obtained regulatory clearance in four jurisdictions, including the U.S. and Taiwan, and is still working on clearances from five other regions consisting of the EU, China, Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines. Just recently the Company has offered NXP-owned patent concessions to win regulatory approval in the EU.

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.
