Qualcomm Clears Clouds of Doubt in Its Fiscal Q3 2018 Earnings

On July 26, Qualcomm (QCOM) stock rose 7% while NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) stock fell 5.7% a day after the two companies announced the end of their 21-month merger talks and released their earnings for the June quarter. On its fiscal third-quarter earnings call, Qualcomm’s management stated that it was withdrawing from the NXP deal because it had not secured approval from China’s (MCHI) State Administration for Market Regulation. Qualcomm ended the uncertainty surrounding the deal by paying a $2 billion termination fee to NXP.
