Jim Cramer warns that the arrest of a top Huawei executive automatically makes U.S. technology companies with business in China less valuable.
About a year after the first Qualcomm-powered Windows systems were announced, Qualcomm has unveiled the Snapdragon 8cx, a 7-watt notebook system-on-chip (SoC) promised to ship inside of commercial devices in Q3 2019. Notably, whereas Qualcomm's first two notebook processors -- the Snapdragon 835 and 850, respectively -- were either also used in smartphones or had much in common with a Qualcomm smartphone processor, the 8cx was built from the ground up specifically for notebooks and notebook/tablet hybrids.
Billionaire hedge fund managers such as Steve Cohen and Stan Druckenmiller can generate millions or even billions of dollars every year by pinning down high-potential small-cap stocks and pouring cash into these candidates. Small-cap stocks are overlooked by most investors, brokerage houses, and financial services hubs, while the unlimited research abilities of the big players […]
American companies have been crucial in helping Huawei Technologies Co. become the world’s dominant telecommunications player. Inc. are top suppliers of Huawei, which buys their components to make equipment such as base stations and routers and Huawei mobile phones. Qualcomm and Intel are also working with Huawei on its development of next-generation 5G technologies, a field in which the Chinese company’s aim to be a global leader has alarmed some in Washington.
Although 5G has launched in a handful of markets, 2019 will become the year when it begins to operate on a large-scale basis. Hardware manufacturers have released chips for phones and other devices that can support 5G, and help 5G stocks. Since 5G will likely bring new applications not yet imagined, we cannot know the full extent of the changes it will deliver.
Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) continues to be in the spotlight, as the product announcements from the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2018 keep coming. QCOM announced it will beat Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) in the race to release processors for the PC market using the advanced 7nm process. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx — the “x” stands for extreme — is the largest processor the company has ever made, and it looks like it has the power to give Intel the cold sweats.
As of December 7 at 12:15 PM EST, Apple stock was down 2.4% from its previous day’s closing price, extending the losses it had seen in the last couple of sessions. On a quarter-to-date basis, AAPL has fallen 22.6% compared to the 10.3% fall in the NASDAQ Composite Index (QQQ) in the fourth quarter so far. Earlier today, popular investment company Morgan Stanley revised its price target on Apple stock to $236 from $253, CNBC reported.
April 15, 2019, is the date that the trial between Qualcomm (QCOM) and Apple (AAPL) is scheduled to begin. Shortly after Apple unveiled its latest iPhone models in September, Qualcomm filed a lawsuit alleging that Apple had stolen its trade secrets. Can Apple and Qualcomm settle their differences and avoid a potentially costly and disruptive courtroom battle?
Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon discusses the company's 5G plans and relationship with Apple.
Japan is considering banning government ministries from procuring equipment from China’s Huawei and ZTE as part of its intensifying cyber security measures, according to people familiar with the plan. The move comes a day after Canadian officials revealed that Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer and the daughter of chief executive Ren Zhengfei, had been arrested following a US extradition request over allegations that the company had violated sanctions against Iran.
Chip and PC makers have been pushing always on, always connected computers for months now, but at least in the US, people don't find both parts of that equation equally valuable. Lenovo VP Matt Bereda told Engadget that more customers who actually go out and buy these computers do so because of the promise of long-lasting battery life, not the idea of being online all the time. "Battery life is the number one pain point, no doubt," said Peter Burns, Qualcomm's director of marketing for always-connected PCs.
WASHINGTON/OTTAWA (Reuters) - President Donald Trump did not know about plans to arrest a top executive at Chinese telecoms giant Huawei in Canada, two U.S. officials said on Thursday, in an apparent attempt to stop the incident from impeding crucial trade talks with Beijing. Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's [HWT.UL] chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, the 46-year-old daughter of the company's founder, was detained in Canada on Dec. 1, the same day Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping dined together at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires.
BEIJING—The arrest of a senior executive of networking-gear maker Huawei Technologies Co. intensifies the confrontation in the already divisive China-U.S. negotiations on trade, striking at Chinese President Xi Jinping’s ambitions to make the country a tech superpower. Huawei has been at the center of the spiraling rivalry between the U.S. and China. This summer, when Mr. Xi ordered China’s antitrust regulator to effectively scuttle Qualcomm Inc.’s acquisition of NXP Semiconductors NV, he did it to protect Huawei, according to people briefed on the matter.
The arrest of a top Huawei executive automatically makes U.S. technology companies with business in China less valuable, CNBC's Jim Cramer warns. Top tech players like Apple, Micron, Intel and Qualcomm are all "worth less today than yesterday," says the "Mad Money" host. U.S.-based technology companies with business in China automatically lost value on news of the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou , who has reportedly been accused of violating U.S. sanctions, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Thursday.
On Wednesday, Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) was making headlines, but this time the news was good. Instead of another chapter in the ongoing legal spat with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) that’s knocked 25% off QCOM stock this year, the company announced its new flagship mobile processor: the Snapdragon 855. At the Snapdragon Tech Summit conference on Wednesday, Qualcomm officially took the wraps off its new flagship processor for mobile devices.
This could mean big things for Qualcomm stock. Current and prospective owner of Qualcomm stock, however, have just as much of a reason to start licking their chops. Qualcomm’s processors and chipsets are already found in the majority of smartphones, making it unsurprising it was the first to come up with a commercially viable 5G platform.
The company has spent most of the morning here in Hawaii talking about how powerful it is compared to its previous attempts at shoe-horning smartphone-class processors into PCs, and after a little hands-on time with a reference laptop, I'm starting to think Qualcomm is on to something. The first reference laptop I played with was pretty ornately set up: not only did it have loads of tabs open in the early Chromium and Firefox builds for ARM machines, it was also outputting video to two wall-mounted 4K displays and running apps in a virtual machine.
