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 carrierís 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 Samsungís "clear intent to utilize proprietary baseband whenever and wherever possible." Shares of chip maker Qualcomm closed Thursday down $1.46 to $67.97.
