Qualcomm announces $15B stock buyback, hikes dividend 14%

Qualcomm over 30 trillion dollars of cash and marketable securities on its balance sheet, and no debt. When a company, such as Qualcomm, has a strong balance sheet, it is able to increase its dividend and buyback shares. In general, we look to buy balance sheets with low to no debt, so if things do not go as planned, strong cash flow and low debt can keep investments out of serious trouble in tough markets, and can also provide positive surprises.
