Qualcomm is about to release earnings. See if they are kissing their sister, developing into a Bear Case Scenario or something else:
Qualcomm chip business in wireless will see pricing pressure as comptition develops and expands beyond current beach-heads.
Licensing revenue has faltered due to foreign currency mix, product mix and other factors. Just not as strong as they used to be.
4G phones will be backward-compatible with CDMA technologies in 3G networks. However a small portion of phones may emerge as 4G only and Qualcomm may earn lower royalty income on the sale of such devices. Strange but true.
