Global leader in handset chips. For those of use who are not high tech, that means the brains of smart phones. My phone is definitely smarter than I am. Spells better too! As more and more of us use more and more smart phones or other like mobile devices, this company will continue to grow.
Also, [little debt], lots of cash and a dividend that is almost 10X higher than it was 8 years ago. Hope to hold on to this one as tight as my 20 something kids hold their phones.
