    Qualcomm (QCOM) thinks it can grow its revenue and EPS at a 10%+ rate for the next 5 years, CEO Paul Jacobs states at his company's analyst day. The mobile chip/IP giant also forecast 3G/4G connections will grow to 2.7B in 2016 from 800M in 2011, fueled by emerging markets. Ahead of the meeting, Citi claimed Amazon (AMZN) will launch its rumored smartphone in June, and rely on Qualcomm's MSM8960 baseband/app processor. It also thinks there's upside to FY13 chip shipment forecasts, should Qulacomm maintain emerging market share. (slides - 11MB PDF)

    Richly-valued Rackspace (RAX -5.4%) is selling off after delivering a decent (but not spectacular) Q3 report (I, II) - shares are still up strongly from July levels. Rackspace noted on its earnings call it's seeing healthy early interest in its OpenStack cloud infrastructure solutions, whose scalability help Rackspace better compete with Amazon Web Services (AWS), and that it has led to "conversations with large enterprise customers that we just weren't having a year ago." Rackspace is hoping its service quality and user control will help counter Amazon's pricing edge.

    Amazon (AMZN) was as secretive as ever during its Q3 call (webcast/slides). No comment on which European markets are weak, and no comment on the impact of sales taxes (it now collects on over 50% of sales). Amazon also dodged an amusing question about whether it's made a "philosophical" decision to keep running near breakeven. But it did note paid unit growth was 39% Y/Y, and active customer accounts rose by 8M Q/Q to 188M. Gross margin was 25.2%, down a bit from Q2's 9-year high of 26.1%. Shares -0.9% AH - like Apple, some bad news was priced in. (more)

    Texas Instruments' Q3 call didn't contain much for chip stock investors to be excited about. The analog chip giant claims customer inventories remain lean and demand visibility short; that the industrial and telecom markets are soft; and that September was the weakest month in the quarter. Also, wireless sales are expected to underperform again on a Q/Q basis, a likely sign Amazon is paring back Kindle Fire-related orders after building inventories in Q3. TXN -0.3% AH. (Q3 results: I, II)
