    geti it now, read this:

    Qualcomm (QCOM) is set to release its 2nd quarter 2013 earnings on Tuesday, April 24th at 10:45 pm ET. Below I have provided an update of the quarter as well as an overview of earnings expectations.

    P/E of 19.1 is below the industry averages 62.1.
    Net income growth over the last three years has averaged 56.6% which is above the industry averages 48.2%.
    Operating margins of 30.4%, net margins of 32.3%, ROA of 16.0 and ROE of 20.7 all are above the industry averages 9.9%, 7.3%, 5.5 and 10.1 respectively.
    1.57% dividend yield.
    ROIC has grown in each of the last three years and came in at 20.2% last year.
    Baseband chip provider for Apple's iPhone, 4S and 5 devices.
    Receives royalties from carriers using or upgrading to CDMA networks (includes 3G).

    P/B of 3.1 and P/S of 5.4 are both above the industry averages 2.1 and 1.6 respectively.
    Faces stiff price competition and will need to stay ahead of competitors to fight off declining margins.
    Take Away

    Qualcomm is definitely a force to be reckoned with and shares have deservingly rewarded investors who spotted its dominant chip position before they took off. Sell-side analysts still see shares above their current price and if Qualcomm's report next week shows continued success, investors looking to add to or initiate a new position will be pressed for time.
