QUALCOMM Incorporated (QCOM) Turns into Intentions Seekers Complement JetBlue Airways (JBLU), Frontier Communications (FTR)


QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM) retreated its position after shares change of -0.96% on Thursday and it traded at $53.60. The 52-week high of the share price is -25.16% and 52-week low of the share price is 9.57%.

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) reported that the Taiwan Fair Trade Commission (TFTC) has reached a decision in the TFTC’s investigation, stating in a press release that certain of the Company’s business practices are in violation of Taiwanese competition law and imposing a fine of around $23.4 billion Taiwan dollars (around $773 million US dollars at current exchange rates).

Qualcomm disagrees with the decision summarized in the TFTC’s press release and intends to seek to stay any required behavioral measures and appeal the decision to the Taiwanese courts after receiving the TFTC’s formal decision, which is expected in the next several weeks. The fine bears no rational relationship to the amount of Qualcomm’s revenues or activities in Taiwan, and Qualcomm will appeal the amount of the fine and the method used to calculate it.

Investors looking further ahead will note that the Price to next year’s EPS is -18.84%.
