What Is QCOM Share CFD Trading?

Qualcomm Inc. is an American multinational corporation that specialises in the development, design, and manufacture of semiconductors, software, and various other technologies used in wireless communication and mobile computing devices.

QCOM share CFD (Contract for Difference) trading involves analysing the market and speculating on the price movements of Qualcomm Inc. shares without actually owning them.

Traders can take long positions if they expect Qualcomm's stock price to rise. In contrast, they can take short positions if they anticipate a price decline. CFD trading involves the use of leverage, which means you can control a larger position with a relatively small amount of capital. While leverage may amplify returns, it also increases the risk of substantial losses.

FXOpen offers the opportunity to engage in share CFD trading with narrow spreads starting from 0.0 pips and a minimal commission as low as $1.

Historical Price Performance of QCOM

Below, you will find the most important movements of the QCOM stock price:

Qualcomm Inc. went public on December 14th, 1991. Since then, the company has undergone a total of four stock splits. The latest stock split occurred on August 16th, 2004. As a result of these stock splits, one QCOM share purchased prior to February 24th, 1994, would be equivalent to 32 QCOM shares at present. The company’s stocks are listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange.

From 2004 to 2011, the stock price was moving within a range of $40-60. Breaking the range upwards, the market managed to reach $80 in the spring of 2014.

However, the uptrend ended quickly, and by the beginning of 2016, the price had fallen below $45.

The next critical increase occurred in July 2020. At the end of 2021, the company’s shares traded above $180.

The dramatic surge was followed by a correction. Still, the price managed to stay above $100 in the two following years.

Major Factors That Affect the Value of QCOM

Earnings and Financial Performance. The most direct impact on a company's stock price is its financial performance. Quarterly and annual earnings reports, revenue growth, and profit margins can significantly influence investor sentiment and stock valuation.

Market Sentiment. Investor sentiment and market perception can sway the stock price. Positive news, such as product launches, strategic partnerships, and regulatory approvals, can boost sentiment and drive share prices higher.

Competitive Landscape. Qualcomm operates in a highly competitive industry. Rivalry from other semiconductor manufacturers and changes in market share can impact the company's stock price.

Macroeconomic Events. Major events like economic crises, global health pandemics, and geopolitical tensions can have a profound impact on financial markets and stock prices.

Dividends and Share Buybacks. Qualcomm's dividend policy and share repurchase programmes can also influence investor behaviour. Dividend increases or stock buybacks can attract income-focused and value investors.
