(Reuters) - U.S. chipmaker Qualcomm Inc said on Thursday it would buy back about $16 billion (12.25 billion pounds) of its common stock as part of the previously announced $30 billion stock repurchase plan.

Qualcomm is seeking to compensate investors for the collapse of its $44 billon acquisition of NXP Semiconductors in July due to Chinese opposition.
