  • In the chipmaking space, companies developing AI chips have seen all the attention. But existing chipmakers that can still deliver critical chips outside the AI realm can also be valuable. And buying them now may give investors an edge going into the end of the year.

    For instance, wireless communications chip company Qualcomm (QCOM) has been sliding in recent weeks. But the chipmaker will continue to be the supplier to Apple (AAPL) for another three years, against expectations of Apple developing chips in-house.

    Shares of Qualcomm are still down 20 percent over the past year, which has pushed its valuation to less than 12 times forward earnings. Investors can likely see more upside ahead here, as Qualcomm continue to build its lead in the wireless chipmaking space.
