Qualcomm: Regardless of China, a Slowing Giant, Says Raymond James
By Tiernan Ray
Raymond James‘s Tavis McCourt today reiterates a Market Perform rating on shares of Qualcomm (QCOM), despite increasing his estimates to reflect greater share of the company’s chips in mobile devices with LTE connections, especially in China.
McCourt’s concern is that the company still faces the overall maturation of the smartphone market, especially with weaker-than-expected results reported yesterday by Samsung Electronics (005930KS).

Petitions against all four patents in first lawsuit have now been filed.
Judge Dalton's ruling explained.
Clock is not yet ticking on the second lawsuit.
On July 2, 2014, RPX Corp. (RPXC) and I jointly filed a fourth petition requesting inter partes review (IPR) of a ParkerVision (PRKR) patent - this one to invalidate the 7,496,342 patent (IPR2014-01107). As mentioned in my previous article, all four petitions are available for free online; click on Direct Link under the first heading (Patent Review Processing System), search for the IPR2014-xxxxx numbers above); or download them directly; updates will be added as the IPR process continues.
Also, on July 2, 2014, ParkerVision filed with the PTAB that Sterne Kessler will act as lead counsel for the first three IPRs.
It's why insiders are bailing out so quickly.
Intel’s LTE Modem Wins the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

Samsung uses Intel's XMM 7160
Samsung typically launches two variants of every major Galaxy S/Note phone -- one aimed at North America and one for the rest of the world. The North American model generally features Qualcomm silicon, particularly as Qualcomm is today the only vendor with modems that support CDMA (which is required for carriers such as Verizon and Sprint).
The international variants of these flagships often use Samsung applications processors (known as Exynos) paired with either a Samsung modem or a modem from another vendor. For the Galaxy S5 Mini, Samsung is pairing a chip known as the Exynos 3470 (quad ARM Cortex A7 and ARM's Mali-400MP4 graphics) with Intel's first-generation multimode XMM 7160 LTE modem.
Intel, Qualcomm and Others Compete for ‘Internet of Things’ Standard

If the stakes are big enough, companies will compete even for something that is supposed to be free to all comers. And over the next few years, very little stands to be bigger than the Internet of Things, or IoT.
A group of technology companies led by Intel announced on Tuesday the formation of the Open Interconnect Consortium. The group, which also includes Atmel, Broadcom, Dell, Samsung and Wind River, will focus on creating an open-source standard for wirelessly connecting devices to one another and to the Internet. Like other open-source projects, the member companies pledge to donate intellectual property, or IP, that all members and others can work on and use.
“We’d like to quickly get the key industry players to structure the standards properly” for devices to interoperate, said Imad N. Sousou, general manager of Intel’s open-source technology center. Products using the Open Interconnect standard will most likely come out in 2015, he said.

Not a good company
