© Reuters. Qualcomm vs. Broadcom: Which iPhones Vendor Is a Better Buy?
Investors are betting heavily on semiconductor stocks as semiconductor chips are the backbone of most of the technologies and devices used in today’s digital age. As such, the shares of two of the largest chip makers – Qualcomm (NASDAQ 🙂 and Broadcom (NASDAQ 🙂 – are expected to rise significantly in the coming months based on rising demand for their products and services. But let’s see which of these two stocks is a better buy right now. Qualcomm Incorporated (QCOM) and Broadcom Inc. (AVGO) are two of the world’s largest chip manufacturers. They supply chips to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ 🙂 among other tech giants. QCOM is a wireless technology company engaged in the development, launch and expansion of technologies such as 5G. AVGO designs, develops and supplies a range of semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions.
iPhones have a loyal customer base. Consumers using iPhones generally stick with the product, given its constant innovations and upgrades and compatibility with other AAPL products. In fact, iOS volumes are up 6.5% year on year in 2020.
Since QCOM and AVGO play an important role in the manufacturing of iPhones, it is reasonable that they will witness an increasing demand for their chips in the short term. In addition, demand for QCOM and AVGO products and services could also continue to grow, driven by end markets other than AAPL consumers.
