Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) stock has been volatile over the past few months. QCOM stock went from $57 in mid-April to almost $90 by the end of the month. By mid-May -- one month after Qualcomm stock rocketed higher -- the shares were back down to $65.Source: Shutterstock Holy moly, that's a lot of volatility for a name that many own for income. Some income investors can ignore that kind of noise and use it to their advantage. That is, they can reap the reward of the gains of QCOM stock, yet smile when it declines, knowing that their reinvested dividends are buying more shares of QCOM stock. * 7 Stocks Top Investors Are Buying Now But QCOM stock looks like a tough dividend stock to stomach. After all, Qualcomm stock is bouncing around more than high-octane growth names like Shopify (NASDAQ:SHOP) and Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU), with the latter name recently hitting new, all-time highs. The bottom line is that there are far less volatile names with yields similar to that of QCOM stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut the charts indicate that Qualcomm stock could be presenting investors with the perfect buying opportunity. Let's take a closer look. Trading QCOM Stock Click to EnlargeQCOM is sitting right above its uptrend support, depicted by the upward-sloping blue line. However, on Tuesday QCOM stock importantly closed over its short-term downtrend resistance (depicted by the downward sloping blue line with the number "2" above it. ). A similar pattern has played out for a longer period of time, with the purple lines highlighting the wedge.So what does all this mean?That data alone isn't necessarily enough to convince investors to go long QCOM stock, but have a closer look; Qualcomm stock is staying above its 20-day and 50-day moving averages.The most attractive part of the setup, though, is the fact that QCOM is so close to its uptrend support and those moving averages. That puts buyers in a low-risk trading situation. Since it's easy for them to pull the plug on the trade and sell their position on a slight breakdown, they can avoid the pain of a major reversal. The only caveat is that QCOM can't be too volatile.With their downside limited, traders can look to ride QCOM stock up to its monthly high near $80.76. Click to EnlargeFor longer term investors, this trade setup may not be applicable. However, for them, another trade may be worthwhile. Specifically, it's pretty clear what a vital level $65 is for QCOM stock. While it seems unlikely that the tech giant would pull back and test that area, remember that it did so just last month.An unfavorable development involving Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), the DoJ or any number of catalysts can negatively impact Qualcomm stock. Keep the $65 level in mind on any deep pullbacks. Weighing Qualcomm StockRecently, I asked whether being long Qualcomm stock was worth the risk. In its settlement with Apple, Qualcomm was paid at least $4.5 billion and agreed to a six-year licensing deal. Further, all legal disputes between the two companies were dropped, clearing a huge headwind for QCOM stock and making one of the world's richest firms its customer.The bulls didn't get to enjoy their spoils for long, though.The FTC made a huge fuss about Qualcomm, arguing that its practices are anti-competitive. Judge Lucy Koh ruled that QCOM is a monopoly and must change the way it does business. The FTC also accused QCOM of charging excessive licensing fees for its technology and has forced the company to submit annual compliance reports for the next seven years to the agency.On Wednesday, QCOM stock rose slightly as the DoJ reportedly sought to delay the enforcement of the antitrust ruling. The Justice Department argued that the ruling would force the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense to suffer intolerable supply disruptions. The DoJ also says that QCOM will likely win its appeal.At the end of the day, the legal issues facing QCOM create both opportunity and risk.While analysts, on average, only expect QCOM's earnings to increase an anemic 2.7% this year, investors are banking on forecasts of 35% growth next year.I like the way QCOM stock has set up on the chart, but I am also aware of its legal risks.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

It seems like Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) stock has been featured in the news every day -- and not always in a positive light.Bad news follows upon good news, leaving investors with a seasick feeling and shaking some shareholders out of their position.I don't think it's necessary to panic-sell Qualcomm stock now; if anything, it could be a time to buy on the dips and hold until the news-induced catalysts blow over.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks Top Investors Are Buying Now Personally, I enjoy this type of volatility - especially when the company has a solid product offering, which I believe is the case with Qualcomm. Too Big for Its Own Good?Usually safety-minded investors prefer to invest in large companies that dominate their respective industries, but occasionally you'll see a company that gets so big that antitrust concerns rear their ugly head. That seems to be the case with Qualcomm, as government intervention has pushed the QCOM stock price up and down with each new development.As the No. 1 chip maker in the world, perhaps we ought to have expected some pushback from regulators at some point. In early 2018, the European Commission fined Qualcomm 997 million euros for apparently abusing its market dominance in LTE baseband chipsets. Evidently, Qualcomm had prevented its rivals from competing in the market by making significant payments to a key customer on the condition it would not buy from rivals (this is illegal under strict EU antitrust rules).In the words of Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, Qualcomm "illegally shut out rivals from the market for LTE baseband chipsets for over five years, thereby cementing its market dominance."I can only imagine the venom with which Ms. Vestager issued that indictment, but (and this might be my free-market Americanism revealing itself) I look at the words "shut out rivals" and "cementing its market dominance" as positives, not negatives (as an investor, at least). More Money, More ProblemsWord on the street is that Qualcomm may face a second EU antitrust fine for allegedly blocking rivals from competing in the market. It appears the European Commission is seeking to make an example of Qualcomm; as I see it, the EU's fines can't keep a good company down for long.Back in the U.S., Qualcomm lost an antitrust lawsuit brought by the Federal Trade Commission in May of this year; federal Judge Lucy Koh alleged that Qualcomm has engaged in a "no license, no chips" policy wherein the company would not sell chips to customers unless they also inked a licensing agreement. In reference to this, Koh asserted that Qualcomm "refused to license its rivals and restricted rivals' customer base with the intent to prevent rivals from investing in research and development, and to weaken them in the market."In the most recent turn of events, however, the U.S. Department of Justice is now asking courts to delay the enforcement of Koh's decision. Noting that Qualcomm's 5G capabilities are "foundational for new military capabilities," the DoJ has invoked nothing less than the security of the nation in its defense of Qualcomm:The district court's ruling threatens competition, innovation, and national security. Its liability determination misapplied Supreme Court precedent, and its remedy is unprecedented. Immediate implementation of the remedy could put our nation's security at risk, potentially undermining U.S. leadership in 5G technology and standard-setting, which is vital to military readiness and other critical national interests.I had never thought of a QCOM stock position as an investment in our national security -- but hey, as long as I'm profiting, I'll take any excuse I can get. The Bottom Line on QCOM StockRelax -- you don't need an excuse as profound as national security to own Qualcomm stock now. As far as I'm concerned, antitrust fines are a temporary problem and a sign of a truly redoubtable company; in truth, the only ones who should fear Qualcomm are the competition.As of this writing, David Moadel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Taiwan's TSMC forecast that robust demand for 5G chips will drive a stronger second-half even as it anticipates a dispute between Japan and South Korea involving chip-making materials to be a big source of uncertainty. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC) forecast third-quarter revenue to rise as much as 8.4% from a year earlier in U.S. dollar terms. TSMC, which makes modem chips for U.S. chipmaker Qualcomm Inc, is expected to see early gains from the shift to 5G as smartphone makers including Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Huawei race to develop phones enabled with that technology.
