Simple math for the simple minded bashers on this board.
If the dummies purchased $1000 of Qualcomm at the IPO price of fifty cents per share they would today own 2000 shares of Qualcomm worth around $150,000.00 . The current annual dividend rate would bring in $2800. per year or 280% of their original investment!! Moving right along Qualcomm has stated they intend to return 75% of the companies FCF to shareholders in the form of dividend increases and share repurchases. The bashers keep on bashing while the investors keep on smashing!!
