Broadcom (NASDAQ: BRCM  ) is a fabless semiconductor company that lives up to its namesake as it develops a wide range of semiconductor products for a vast array of end markets. One market that is particularly important to Broadcom is the mobile and wireless segment. In this market, Broadcom supplies components such as touch controllers, connectivity combo chips, and (to a limited extent) cellular modems and the attendant applications processors. 

While the company is trying to expand its product lines to capture more content share within handsets, one of its biggest drivers is the connectivity chip business. In particular, both Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF  ) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) are pretty significant buyers of connectivity chips, particularly for their high-end phones. 

Join Eric Bleeker, CFA and Ashraf Eassa as they discuss the potential implications of Apple's results on Broadcom's business and whether it's time to bail on Broadcom.
