Qualcomm (QCOM) discloses on its FQ1 call CFO William Keitel is retiring, effective March 11. He's being replaced by Applied Materials (AMAT) CFO George Davis. AMAT says it's looking for a successor. QCOM +6.7% AH thanks to an FQ1 beat fueled by stronger-than-expected baseband chip and (royalty-bearing) 3G/4G device sales, and solid FQ2/FY13 guidance.
