Qualcomm targets US$16 billion in share buyback

REUTERS: U.S. chipmaker Qualcomm Inc said on Thursday it would buy back about US$16 billion of its common stock as part of the previously announced US$30 billion stock repurchase plan.

Qualcomm is seeking to compensate investors for the collapse of its US$44 billon acquisition of NXP Semiconductors in July due to Chinese opposition.
