    "No buybacks" is incorrect. They announced a new 5 billion buyback program just last month.

    No buybacks took place during the quarter. It definitely looks like they have some planned for the future.

    What is considered as MSM chip set? I see Qualcomm has family series names of APQ, MPQ, QSC, RTR, MDM, & MSM.
