Qualcomm, Taiwan Fair Trade Commission reach settlement

Qualcomm announced that it has reached a mutually agreed settlement with the Taiwan Fair Trade Commission, or TFTC, resolving the TFTC's investigation of Qualcomm and Qualcomm's litigation challenging the TFTC's decision alleging violations of Taiwan's Fair Trade Act. As a result, the whole TFTC decision is replaced by the settlement terms and the decision shall be deemed revoked ab initio and Qualcomm's litigation filed in the Taiwan Intellectual Property Court is closed. As part of the resolution, Qualcomm has agreed to certain process-related commitments confirming principles of mutual good-faith and fairness in the negotiation of agreements with handset licensees to Qualcomm's cellular standard essential patents, or SEPs. The resolution does not require component-level licensing or set specific financial terms; instead it is focused on commitments that ensure good-faith negotiations for the benefit of licensees and SEP owners. As part of the settlement, the parties agreed that the approximately $93M Qualcomm paid towards the monetary fine through the end of July will be retained by the TFTC and no other amounts will be due. In addition, Qualcomm will drive certain commercial initiatives in Taiwan over the next five years for the benefit of the mobile and semiconductor ecosystem, SMEs and consumers, including 5G collaborations, new market expansion, start-up and university collaborations and the development of a Taiwanese center for operations and manufacturing engineering. Qualcomm will work with the TFTC and sister agencies within the Taiwanese government to implement these initiatives and investments.

Qualcomm China 5G-related RF position a threat to Skyworks, says Morgan Stanley
After speaking with a senior RF engineer at a "leading China OEM," Morgan Stanley analyst Craig Hettenbach said that, contrary to investor expectations, Qualcomm (QCOM) appears to be "in the driver seat" to win the majority of 5G-related RF content in the first wave of 5G capable phones in China. Qualcomm's traction in 5G RF can feed the bear case in Skyworks (SKWS) and Qorvo (QRVO), said Hettenbach, who lowered his target P/E multiple on Skyworks to reflect what he now sees as a more credible competitive threat from Qualcomm. Hettenbach lowered his price target on Skyworks to $80 from $87 and keeps an Underweight rating on the shares and he maintains an Equal Weight rating and $75 price target on Qorvo.

Qualcomm upgraded to Outperform at Cowen
As reported previously, Canaccord analyst Matthew Ramsay upgraded Qualcomm to Outperform from Market Perform. The analyst noted the company's $30B buyback and believes the shares offer a compelling risk/reward with effects of lower spending, solid customer performance, and potential QTL resolutions. Ramsay raised his price target to $80 from $64 on Qualcomm shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Comcast (CMCSA) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Hamilton Faber saying he believes "the bulk of the M&A storm" has passed. 2. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Matthew Ramsay citing the company's $30B buyback and saying he believes the shares offer a compelling risk/reward with effects of lower spending, solid customer performance, and potential QTL resolutions. 3. Square (SQ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with analyst Chris Brendler saying the Q2 strong results reduced his concerns about high valuation and competition and said there is no reason why Square will not continue to report better-then-expected core revenue growth into 2020. 4. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst David Raso saying the company's recent operational struggles are behind it with this quarters report and views 2019 guidance as conservative. 5. Intercept (ICPT) upgraded to Buy from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Salveen Richter saying Ocaliva in fatty liver disease nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is the crux of Intercept's value proposition and that he's positive into the Phase 3 Regenerate interim readout in the first half of 2019.

Morgan Stanley downgrades semiconductor industry view to Cautious
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said he has become less constructive on semiconductor stocks through the year and he now believes elevated inventory levels and stretched lead times leave "no margin for error." Given his view that any lead time adjustment or demand slowdown could drive a "meaningful correction," Moore has downgraded his semiconductor industry view to Cautious from In-Line. He favors connector companies, like Amphenol (APH) and TE Connectivity (TEL) over analog/MCU at this point in the cycle, due to lower risk around lead time issues, Moore said. He also has a "strong preference" for high margin and more defensive models, such as Analog Devices (ADI) over lower margin and commodity exposed ones, like Cypress Semiconductor (CY) and ON Semiconductor (ON), he said. Despite his more cautious view on the space, Moore keeps Overweight ratings on Nvidia (NVDA), Xilinx (XLNX) and Ambarella (AMBA), citing his view that they should benefit from secular growth in the area of AI, data center, and autonomous. Other semiconductor names include Microchip (MCHP), Qorvo (QRVO), Micron (MU), Intel (INTC), Broadcom (AVGO) and Qualcomm (QCOM).
