QUALCOMM Shares Dip and 4 Chip and Big Data Stocks on the Move

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC): There continues to be speculation that Intel could possibly leverage its expertise in semiconductor manufacturing as it pushes itself into the foundry business, basically taking on Taiwan Semiconductor and others in the business of producing chips for others. This speculation has surfaced mostly because of Apple, and already, Intel has made processors for the Mac. However, iPhones and iPads use a proprietary ARM-based processor which was produced for Apple by Samsung. It appears that Apple has been searching for alternatives, and options possibly could include Intel.

QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM) makes wireless chips for the iPhone and iPad, and it has fallen $1.87, or 3 percent, at $60.89, and it dropped down to $59.44.
