  1. Thanks for sharing your recent pick up. QCOM is trading at much more attractive levels compared to late last year. I can understand why you went with this name.

    1. I definitely considered it a great buy :)

  2. QCOM has a nice history of earning and dividend raises. Looks like you also picked it up just in time for the Feb 27th Ex-Dividend. That is always a plus!

    Thanks for sharing. BTW, hope you don't mind...we've added this to our Collection of Recent Buys! ;)

    Best wishes and continued success on your journey! AFFJ

    1. Yes indeed :) had to get into that window! Also, thanks for promoting the blog. I always appreciate it!

  3. QCOM seems like an attractive valuation but are you worried about all the lawsuits and how that may impact their licensing revenue?

    1. When you work in corporate America, you seem to go nose blind to lawsuits. There absolutely everywhere.
