    8 Corporate Earnings That Are Vulnerable To China's Downturn

    The steep economic slowdown in China has become cause for major concern among stock investors who own U.S. companies that derive significant revenue from that market. As the corporate earnings reporting season gets underway, this may weigh heavily on many companies' financial results -- just as it did on Apple Inc. (AAPL), when it issued gloomy forecasts based on lowered expectations in China. “My guess is, what Apple did will be the blueprint for many other companies,” says Joe LaVorgna, chief economist for the Americas at Paris-based investment banking and asset management firm Natixis, per a story in The Wall Street Journal.

    [$$] Germany Dismisses Qualcomm’s Latest Patent Suit Against Apple

    BERLIN—A German court dismissed a patent lawsuit from Qualcomm Inc. against Apple Inc., the first setback in the country for the chip maker in a dispute that resulted last month in the ban of some iPhone sales in China and Germany. The regional court in the city of Mannheim said Tuesday that a patent-infringement case brought by Qualcomm was unfounded, though the chip maker can appeal the decision. The ruling is the first of six patent cases brought by Qualcomm in Mannheim, with the second such decision expected next month, a spokesman for the court said.

    David Rolfe Comments on Qualcomm

    To say the least, 2018 was an eventful year for Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM). Setting aside the actual financial results of the business, 2018 saw the bid from Broadcom to acquire Qualcomm shut down by a U.S. presidential order in the interests of national security, the bid by Qualcomm to acquire NXP Semiconductor collapse due to the Chinese government's refusal to review the bid for antitrust concerns, the Chinese government coming back months later - after the NXP deal had collapsed and Qualcomm had spent a significant amount of the cash that had been intended to acquire NXP originally on a big share buyback - and saying they now would approve the deal. Additionally, 2018 saw ongoing litigation with Apple, including several rounds of peripheral legal and political skirmishes, some of which have been almost farcical.

On Monday, Apple’s current second-in-command took the witness stand to denounce the $7.50-a-phone fee as an unfair business practice. The regulatory agency called Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams as a witness to help show that Qualcomm has abused its global dominance in the smartphone market.

    Apple, Intel Persuade U.S. Patent Office to Enter Qualcomm Fight

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Board agreed to consider the validity of two Qualcomm patents, according to notices posted on its electronic docket Tuesday. Apple and ally Intel Corp. had claimed the patents didn’t cover new inventions and the board conducted a preliminary analysis to determine if Apple had a “reasonable likelihood” of winning its argument. The review board announcements involve just the first of dozens of challenges filed by Apple and Intel at the review board against Qualcomm, and are just a few of the vast portfolio Qualcomm owns in the area of mobile telecommunications.

    What Is 5G? Answer That Question and Upload Profits

    Many waiting for the next quantum leap in technology are looking to 5G. This faster, more reliable wireless technology will greatly change all corners of the tech landscape. It could also lead to advances not yet imagined. * 8 Dividend Stocks With Growth on the Horizon As a result, older tech and telecom companies will likely see most of the initial benefits. However, finding the best 5G stocks entails both understanding the technology and imagining where it can go in the future. ### What Is 5G? First, we must answer the question of what 5G is. Put simply, 5G encompasses the next generation of wireless technology. Estimates of speed improvements vary. Most estimates today indicate that it can reach peak speeds of 20GB per second -- twenty times 4G LTE's peak speed of 1GB per second. Keep in mind, this consists of peak speed under ideal conditions. More than likely, one can expect 5G to operate at 100 MB per second, versus the current 10 MB per second of the existing 4G LTE network. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips The nature of service delivery will change. The current 4G technology sends signals in multiple directions. 5G signals will come from lower and closer panels that point in only one direction. This will allow for the use of 1,000 more devices per meter than 4G. It will also address the crowding problem that the mass adoption of smartphones has caused. We do not yet know the full extent of what it will offer. However, we can expect that the current wireless applications will take place at increased speeds. As a result, the current Wi-Fi connections, which most of us depend on, would likely become obsolete. Also, latency, the time a data packet takes to get from one place to another, will almost disappear. ### Numerous Equipment Companies Embrace 5G The changes mean that traditional equipment companies will become 5G stocks. Of course, smartphones will become the most obvious technology to benefit. Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) has released its Snapdragon 855 5G smartphone chip. Hence, we should expect to see 5G phones beginning this year. This could bolster 5G stocks such as Samsung (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) and Motorola (NYSE:MSI). The same could also apply to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). However, if the past serves as an indication, Apple will probably wait until 2020 to release a compatible iPhone. Investors should not forget equipment infrastructure. Firms such as Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) and Nokia (NYSE:NOK) have provided equipment for network build-outs. Some unexpected companies have also innovated in this area. For example, Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) just released plans for a technology code-named "Snow Ridge". Snow Ridge is a wireless base station that can prioritize speed for applications such as remote surgery or self-driving cars, reducing latency where stakeholders can least afford it. Equipment providers often build the applications themselves. Intel, Ericsson, and Nokia are among firms researching a technology called C-V2X. This allows self-driving cars to see possible obstacles not seen by radar and cameras. Also, the Internet of Things (IoT) industry should benefit. Analysts expect this will develop more slowly. However, once these objects connect to 5G, it should expand the scope of interaction. It should also add capability in remote areas, where the reach of wireless and power issues becomes more of a concern. Numerous 5G stocks such as Intel, Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) and Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) also invest heavily into IoT. ### Service Providers, Startups Could See the Most Benefit Still, despite the focus on hardware, the service providers probably serve as the more critical 5G stocks. Sprint (NYSE:S) appears poised to become part of T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS). As a result, this leaves T-Mobile, AT&T (NYSE:T) and Verizon (NYSE:VZ) as a "wireless Big Three." Each company has invested tens of billions of dollars on cross-country build-outs. The sheer cost and scope of a build-out make additional market entrants unlikely. This also places these telecom companies in their most powerful position since the days of the telco monopolies. As a result, this wireless big three should become the most stable 5G stocks. Moreover, risk-tolerant investors wanting massive profit potential may end up finding the best stocks. As mentioned before, 5G will make new applications possible. Companies both old and new will bring these inventions to market. Some of these companies have not become well-known, others probably do not exist yet. While finding such stocks early will become difficult, they hold the highest potential for investor profits in this area. ### Final thoughts Investors who can understand what 5G is and where it can go will likely see the most benefit from 5G stocks. The public knows 5G encompasses the next generation of wireless technology. Much faster speeds and near-zero latency will define this wireless technology. However, it will probably take years for business and society to understand its full implications. * AT&T 5G Launches Dec. 21 in These 12 Cities The expense of testing and implementing these applications means that older tech firms will see most of the initial benefits. However, with the potential for new firms to emerge, investors should remain vigilant about finding new, emerging 5G stocks. By better understanding this technology, investors can not only enjoy the benefits of fast wireless speeds, but they could also upload quicker and more massive profits through 5G stocks. As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.
