TheStreet would like to highlight 3 stocks pushing the sector lower today:

3. Qualcomm ( QCOM) is one of the companies pushing the Technology sector lower today. As of noon trading, Qualcomm is down $0.56 (-0.7%) to $79.84 on light volume. Thus far, 2.8 million shares of Qualcomm exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 9.2 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $79.70-$80.39 after having opened the day at $80.32 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $80.40.

QUALCOMM Incorporated designs, develops, manufactures, and markets digital communications products and services based on code division multiple access (CDMA), orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA), and other technologies. Qualcomm has a market cap of $135.8 billion and is part of the telecommunications industry. Shares are up 8.3% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 20 analysts that rate Qualcomm a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 5 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Qualcomm as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow. Get the full Qualcomm Ratings Report now.
