    Shares of Qualcomm (QCOM) fell 4 percent on Tuesday after U.S. regulators charged the company with using anti-competitive tactics over licensing, in yet another regulatory hurdle to its business. The Federal Trade Commission alleges that Qualcomm received high royalties for patented technologies that are "essential to industry standards." That creates in effect, "a tax" on manufacturers that used competing processors, the FTC said. For instance, the FTC statement said, Qualcomm refused to license patents to competing suppliers, and used its exclusive relationship with Apple to keep competitors from getting stronger.

The oil cartel's production cut last year gave a boost to prices as it limited supply, but Birol expects other countries - most notably the U.S. - will simply step in to fill the void and depress prices, he predicted. The dramatic fall in prices that began in mid-2014 was due to weak demand, a strong dollar and booming U.S. oil production, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).
