Qualcomm has a current ratio of 1.58, which is within standard range for the sector. Debt can assist Qualcomm until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Qualcomm's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Qualcomm sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Qualcomm to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Qualcomm's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

Is Qualcomm's industry expected to grow? Or is there an opportunity to expand the business' product line in the future? Factors like these will boost the valuation of Qualcomm. If investors know Qualcomm will grow in the future, the company's valuation will be higher. The financial industry is built on trying to define current growth potential and future valuation accurately. All the valuation information about Qualcomm listed above have to be considered, but the key to understanding future value is determining which factors weigh more heavily than others.
The market value of Qualcomm is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Qualcomm that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Qualcomm's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Qualcomm's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Qualcomm's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Qualcomm's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Qualcomm's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Qualcomm value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Qualcomm's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
