ARGUS' Analyst Notes:Analysis by Jim Kelleher, CFA, September 13, 2012ARGUS RATING: BUY• Early iPhone 5 launch beneficial• Qualcomm may benefit from the early launch of iPhone 5, which will contribute for nine days in fiscal 4Q12.• A higher number of iPhone 5 chipsets would more meaningfully impact revenue given the higher ASP associated with the chips used in iPhone 5.• Apple's competition sought to preempt iPhone 5 with numerous product launches; Qualcomm's bill of materials (BOM) in several of these phones is significantly higher than its BOM from iPhone 5.• The Street is likely under-estimating Qualcomm's earnings power, partly because the iPhone launch was pulled into calendar 3Q12 but also because of Qualcomm's higher-priced Snapdragon presence in competitive smartphones that seem to be gaining momentum
Seems ARGUS analyst was right, given today's earnings:http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2012/11/07/qcom-fyq4-rev-eps-beat/
