Nice to see at least somebody is computing the value of stocks. No question some of the best stocks are being battered down by over zealous pundit articles and downgrades. Regardless of what the issues are, Qualcomm is clearly experiencing hyper growth. As a stockholder, I care about profit, not pundits.
