    • Ahead of today's annual meeting (starts at 12:30PM ET, webcast), Qualcomm (QCOM -2.2%) has hiked its quarterly dividend by 10% to $0.53/share (implies a 4.1% yield). The hike will be effective for dividends payable after March 23.
    • Possibly weighing on shares (amid a 1% Nasdaq drop): The U.S. Commerce Department has slapped sanctions on Chinese smartphone/telecom equipment vendor ZTE over alleged attempts to re-export controlled items to Iran. The sanctions require U.S. suppliers of parts and equipment to ZTE to apply for an export license; the Commerce Department says it's operating under a "policy of presumption of denial" for granting licenses.
    • Qualcomm's chips have gone into plenty of ZTE phones and base stations, and Qualcomm is four months removed from striking a new 3G/4G licensing deal with ZTE. Aside from that, the ZTE sanctions are stoking fears China will retaliate with its own sanctions against U.S. firms

    • Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) has launched a $15B buyback program that will replace a prior program with $2.1B remaining. The company plans to buy back $10B worth of shares within 12 months, on top of a current commitment to return 75% of free cash flow to shareholders. At current levels, the new buyback is good for repurchasing ~1/8 of all outstanding shares.
    • The quarterly dividend has been hiked by $0.06 (14%) to $0.48/share; that's good for a 2.6% yield at current levels. It will be effective for dividends payable after March 25.
    • Qualcomm spent $1.7B on buybacks in the December quarter (FQ1). With the company ending the quarter with $3.6B left on its buyback authorization, today's announcement suggests it has spent $1.5B on buybacks since.
    • A 20% dividend increase and $5B buyback hike was announced a year ago. Qualcomm plans to raise debt to finance the new capital returns. The company had $31.6B in cash/marketable securities and no debt at the end of FQ1.
    • Shares have risen to $74.21 AH.

    • Qualcomm (QCOM) intends to use its substantial $30.4B of cash to help it maintain its strong position in the market for chips for mobile devices, CEO Paul Jacobs says.
    • "We want to drive the new technology into the market as quickly as possible," Jacobs says. Having a "good war chest" will enable the semiconductor company to keep investing even when the economy worsens.
    • Despite strong revenue growth, Qualcomm's shares have languished vs other technology stocks in the S&P 500, prompting calls for Qualcomm to boost its dividend and stock buybacks. While Jacobs says he's listening to those calls, he has no intention of taking on debt to fund increased payouts.
