qualcomm qcom stock5-Year Dividend Growth Rate: 17.5%
5-Year Expected EPS Growth Rate: 16.7%

With a leading role in the mobile devices market, Qualcomm (QCOM) continues to churn out higher revenues and earnings, with fiscal 2012 revenues up 28% year-over-year to $19 billion and earnings 43% better at $6 billion.

Mobile is everything in computing today, and its growth is all but guaranteed to continue unabated into the near future, so I wouldn’t look for Qualcomm to lose any momentum heading into the next five-year stretch. QCOM’s most recent second-quarter report showed revenue ahead 35% compared to last year, and net income is ahead 30% — a nice foot forward.

QCOM’s dividend growth rate is a bit skewed by its most recent bump from 25 cents to 35 cents per year, but that’s no reason to expect Qualcomm to tighten the dividend spigot any time soon.
