Qualcomm will receive IP royalties even if the company face competition from Apple in the future

Qualcomm skyrocketed after they announced an agreement with Apple. CEO Tim Cook was asked about the agreement with Qualcomm during Tuesday`s earnings call and he said Apple is satisfied with the resolution.

Qualcomm is the world`s leading chip designer for wireless technologies, including 3G and 4G/LTE, and the company wants to be the leader in 5G as well. The agreement means that Apple could offer a 5G iPhone as early as spring 2020.

“Were glad to put the litigation behind us and all the litigation around the world has been dismissed and settled. Were very happy to have a multi-year supply agreement and we`re happy that we have a direct license arrangement with Qualcomm that was important for both companies. We feel good about the resolution,”┬áTim Cook said on Tuesday.

The settlement also included a chipset supply agreement, and Qualcomm is expected to provide the 5G chips that Apple will need to introduce 5G connectivity in its 2020 iPhones. After the agreement, Intel said that they are dropping out of the smart phone modem chip market entirely, and they have no plans to manufacture 5G chips.

Apple will be licensing 5G IP from Qualcomm and other license holders under the Fair, reasonable, And Non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms established by ETSI throughout the 5th generation of wireless technology.

If Apple develops and integrates its own modem technology in the future, Qualcomm will not lose on that, but still receive IP royalties even if the company face competition from Apple. So, licensing for the 6th generation will depend on Apple`s participation in future standards efforts.

Qualcomm does not have its own manufacturing facilities like Intel and Samsung. Their chips are produced by contract manufacturers such as Taiwan semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), or provide licenses to produce and use its intellectual property in smartphones.

Qualcomm has been on the market for a long time. So have Taiwan semiconductor manufacturing Company. TSMC was the world`s first dedicated semiconductor foundry and has long been the leading company in its field.

Qualcomm was created in July 1985 and have 35,400 employees. Net income last year was US$4,86 billion. The company is expected to report earnings on 01 May, 2019 after market close.

Apple`s growth from other products and services jumped 19% YoY

Apple Inc is expected to report earnings on Tuesday 30 April 2019, and the earnings is expected to come in lower than for the same quarter last year. It came in at $2,73 last year and they need more than iPhones to lift that number in the future.

The stock have jumped straight up so far this year and have a good momentum. More buybacks will make the stock go higher. We will probably hear more about that on Tuesday. Another issue is their revenue due to the drop in prices.

Analysts are expecting a 6,1% revenue decline and the street call for revenue of $57,44 billion with an EPS of $2,36. The earnings will be strongly helped by Apple`s massive buyback. But what about innovation?

Is it too early for Apple to talk about new foldable phones? We know that the iPhone sales dropped 15% YoY, but we also know that there is a strong growth for other products and services which jumped 19% YoY.

The iPhone account for 61,6% of the entire revenue but that wont last for ever. In addition, they have huge competition from Chinese companies on market that is changing very fast. Apples earnings at $2,36 would represent a 14% drop YoY.

Investors are positive and optimistic about Apple`s outlook in the long run, and they are looking at a 20% growth in their strategic shift to the service segment. Apple Inc is expected to report earnings on Tuesday 30 April 2019 after market close.

Samsung released its brand new foldable phone on Wednesday

Sooner or later, the smart phone as we know it today will be old and unfashioned. But what is the future gonna look like. Its an evolution and a new chapter in mobile begun today with Samsungs brand new foldable phone.

The GalaxyFold is Samsungs most significant leap forward, completely reinventing the shape of mobile with their first-ever foldable 7,3 inch Super AMOLED infinite-Flex Display. Their brand new foldable phone comes out ten years after the first Galaxy. They didnt just change the shape of the phone, but they changed the shape of tomorrow.

Samsung`s new gadget has a very special display that can fold open and be used like a tablet og this innovative product is the first of its kind. A new chapter has begun and other companies will follow very soon.

The new foldable phone is released at a time were both Samsung and Apple are struggling to get paid in the higher price range like $1000 to $2000. Samsungs new foldable phone will cost up to about $2000 and that can be a big challenge for Apple if they dont react fast.

Samsung first made known a prototype of the Galaxy Fold in November last year and now it is on the market. It operates on a version of Google Android that automatically adjusts for both tablet and phone modes.

The Apple stocks is up about 9 percent so far this year and it has declined to about $171 from its peak in October of last year. Now, they have a real big challenge, but it can also be a huge opportunity. What is Tim Cook`s next move?

Samsung plummeted about 20 percent last year, but the stock is now up more than that, so the company has faced a sharp recovery from the crash. They are leading the race over Apple with their flexible OLED technology.

The worst Christmas Eve ever followed by the biggest one-day point gain on record

Christmas eve 2018 was the worst ever, and I`m talking about the stock market. Stocks was hit hard and saw the worst Christmas Eve declines ever and MSM blamed on Trump and his attack on the FED.

The bull was fighting back on the boxing day and Nasdaq had its best day since 20019. Not only that; The Dow saw its biggest one-day point gain on record. It was a massive jump for many of the tech stocks which means great days for day traders.

Nasdaq jumped nearly 6 percent were Amazon skyrocketed about 10 percent. Facebook and Netflix with a whopping 8 percent, and Apple up more than 7 percent. Alphabet class A was also up nearly 7 percent. What a day. What a Santa Rally.

Microsoft is down 15 percent from the top but is still 15 percent up YTD. Tuesday, President Trump said that this can be a good time to buy stocks. A closer look at Apple tells us that the tech Giant is near 200 MA and can be a great buying point. So can be said about Alphabet. Two stocks that day traders jumped into earlier today.

The volatility is up over 200 percent this year and it seems like this will continue. Some people are bullish while some people are bearish, and that`s how it is right now. A real fight between the bear and the bull. Awesome.
