Qualcomm: Offers Strong Value Buy Opportunity On Current Pullback
- QCOM has dropped 9.2% since April. At the same time, the technology sector (XLK) has grown by 7.2%. A differential in the QCOM/XLK pair equal of 16.4%.
- The negativity has been primarily due to [resolvable] concerns at Qualcomm's royalty-dependent QTL division - smartphone vendors in China allegedly under-reporting unit sales.
- With solid fundamentals (clean balance sheet, $32 billion cash, market growth, healthy ROE) and China issues likely priced in, QCOM presents a solid value opportunity to buy into the pullback.

- Key value ratios are presently above average across the board - including price/sales, price/EBIT, price/free-cash-flow, price/earnings, and price/book, ranging from between 19.9% and 29.6%.
- The ratio spikes suggest Q4 performance partially/fully priced in - Apple continues to grow, and will likely do so, but in a more constant manner - not exponential.
- The stock price could correct before resuming uptrend - as this could be evidence of shifting investor optimism - a tendency towards longer-term acceptance of these higher values.
