I knew that selling Qualcomm had been financially a bad decision. I had not realized that ViaSat and Entropic had done so well. In particular, Entropic has done tremendously well after a precarious start since its IPO. Meanwhile, Leap’s stock has fallen even more than Metro PCS since it rejected its repeated acquisition offers.
As an aside, Qualcomm has the 7th highest market cap on the NASDAQ: after Apple, Microsoft, Google, Oracle, Vodafone and Intel, but ahead of Cisco, Amazon, Amgen, eBay and Starbucks. There are only about 14 or 15 stocks on the NYSE with higher market cap (including IBM, AT&T, Coke and several banks and oil companies).
