06:45 EDTVZQualcomm downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital downgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Market Perform, removed the stock from its Top Picks list and dropped its price target for shares to $72 from $80. FBR said the moves were prompted by a posting on AT&T's (T) website which said the carrier’s version of the GS6 smarphone is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor with a Shannon 333 modem as opposed to Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform. FBR still expects the Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) GS6 versions to sport Qualcomm modems, but it believes the change at AT&T signals Samsung’s "clear intent to utilize proprietary baseband whenever and wherever possible." Shares of chip maker Qualcomm closed Thursday down $1.46 to $67.97.

Microsoft has completed its latest round of layoffs in a move to "remove role overlap, optimize activities and functions, align disciplines with the rest of Microsoft, and, perhaps most importantly, reshape IT for the skills we need to transform," Business Insider reports, citing an email from Chief Information Officer Jim DuBois. A company spokesperson commented that the company believes this will be the "last of the anticipated broad cuts as part of the restructuring plan announced last July." Though it is unclear how many employees were laid off in this round, affected workers are coming from Microsoft's divisions and not focused on former Nokia employees. Reference Link
