    Analyzing Qualcomm’s Stock Momentum

    Previously, we saw that Qualcomm (QCOM) stock doesn’t show technical weakness even though it fell below its 200-day moving average, which indicates that the stock has growth potential. When the stock momentum is skewed towards one direction, there’s a point when it becomes oversold or overbought. In order to understand investors’ sentiment, we’ll discuss Qualcomm’s 14-day RSI (relative strength index), which measures the intensity of investors’ sentiment. In the two downtrends we talked about in the first part of the series, Qualcomm’s RSI fell below 30 in three instances.

Three companies that influenced Qualcomm stock were Intel (INTC), Apple (AAPL), and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI). Among the four stocks, Qualcomm was the most volatile with a three-year monthly beta of 1.68—compared to Intel’s 0.8, Apple’s 1.21, and NXP Semiconductors’ 1.14.

    Qualcomm’s Operating Margin to Remain Weak in the Short Term

    In the previous article, we learned that Qualcomm’s (QCOM) revenue has fallen and its operating expenses have risen in the last two years as Apple (AAPL) has halted royalty payments and filed lawsuits against it. The high cost of litigation and the removal of revenue from Apple caused Qualcomm’s non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) operating margin to contract from 35% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 to 22% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

    Litigation Costs Drove Qualcomm’s Operating Expenses in 2018

    Qualcomm’s (QCOM) business model is divided into two segments: the chipset business, which sells cellular chips and processors to smartphone makers, and the licensing business, which licenses its patents to smartphone makers. Between the first quarter of fiscal 2017 and the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, Qualcomm’s operating expenses increased from $1.46 billion to $1.84 billion, while its revenue fell from $6.0 billion to $5.8 billion, increasing its operating expense ratio from 24% to 32% during the period. This rise shows the impact of the Apple dispute on Qualcomm.

    Apple Is the Main Cause of Qualcomm’s Weak Q1 Revenue Guidance

    Qualcomm’s (QCOM) fiscal 2018 fourth-quarter revenue beat analysts’ estimate, but its fiscal 2019 first-quarter revenue guidance missed analysts’ estimate. Because the quarter’s sales will be largely influenced by Apple (AAPL). In the first quarter of fiscal 2019, Qualcomm expects to report revenue of $4.5 billion–$5.3 billion, lower than analysts’ consensus estimate of $5.57 billion.

    What Factors Influenced Qualcomm’s 2018 Revenue?

    For instance, it withdrew from its acquisition of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and fended off its acquisition by Broadcom. Although these actions removed uncertainty from Qualcomm’s business, they had a negative impact on the company’s fiscal 2018 fourth-quarter earnings and guidance. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, Qualcomm’s revenue fell 3.3% YoY (year-over-year) but rose 3.6% sequentially to $5.8 billion, higher than analysts’ consensus estimate of $5.5 billion and on the higher end of its guided range.

    A Look at Qualcomm’s Strategy to Grow Its Non-Apple Business

    On Qualcomm’s (QCOM) fiscal 2018 fourth-quarter earnings call, CFO George Davis stated that the handset market has weakened over the last year.

Qualcomm continues to offer its Snapdragon 800 processors for premium phones and has added Snapdragon 700 for high-end phones.

    Assessing Qualcomm’s First Priority in 2019

    On Qualcomm’s (QCOM) fiscal 2018 fourth-quarter earnings call, CEO Steven Mollenkopf, stated that the company’s first priority for fiscal 2019 would be the transition to 5G (fifth-generation) technology. Mollenkopf believes that the 5G ecosystem is far bigger than 3G (third-generation) or 4G (fourth-generation) technology because 5G will go beyond faster network technology to facilitate a connected world in which all industries—from automotive to manufacturing to healthcare—will use 5G-enabled services. According to a study commissioned by Qualcomm, 5G-enabled services will create an economic opportunity of up to $12.3 trillion from various industries by 2035.
