They are a big beneficiary of the Internet.  He does not following it.  He would not buy it here.  But he does believe in the Internet and more and more smart devices.

2017-01-30 BUY Erin Gibbs

It has had to transition from hardware into services.  They have done a pretty decent job.  They offer cloud services and security services.  It has a decent dividend yield and is fairly defensive for the IT world.  3.4% dividend.

2017-01-26 COMMENT Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

One of the old-school technology names and people are looking at the true obvious Cloud players. This company is going to be more and more important in Cloud infrastructure than what people are giving it credit for. From about 2000 to 2015, this made zero, and finally you are seeing some break out.

2017-01-19 DON'T BUY John O'Connell, CFA

They’ve done everything right. Continue to buy back their stock and manage their balance sheet effectively and efficiently. Net profit is 20%, EPS is 12%, income growth is 19%, total debt is only 35.4, Price to Book 2.4%, and ROE is close to 18%. However, you don’t need to be in the hardware manufacturing component. It just continues to be commoditized. You want to be more on the software side. He sold his holdings.

2017-01-17 BUY Jennifer Radman

It is one of her higher holdings.  It has been a bit of a show-me story.  They have been really good at disrupting themselves and getting into new technologies.  They have done well on the gross margin side.  She thinks their shares will continue to climb higher.  There is quite a bit of room to go.

2017-01-10 COMMENT Bruce Tatters

On his radar screen, because it has a growth outlook to its earnings. A very high quality business. It has capital abroad that could be repatriated. The valuation is very, very reasonable at about 12.5X 2017 earnings.

2016-12-23 COMMENT Lorne Zeiler

A name that he likes. The industry leader. It is huge. Trading at a very reasonable valuation of about 13.5-14 times earnings. Earnings growth has been at the lower end, 2%-5% a year. Roughly 30% of the market cap is sitting in cash. If you X that out, you are looking at a 10X valuation, and he doesn’t think the market has put much on that. If repatriation for US companies happens, you are going to see some dividend increases and increased share buyback.

2016-12-21 PAST TOP PICK Rick Stuchberry

(A Top Pick Nov 6/15. Up 10.89%.) He still likes this. The growth is there and it is going to come. You get a good yield while you wait. It will give you a 10% return.

2016-11-29 BUY Paul Harris, CFA

Not when you think of tech stocks anymore. Trading at 12X earnings. Great dividend yield of 3.4%. The router business has been a much more difficult time for them, and he thinks they are going to grow slowly. They have some good growth coming over the next couple of years. Made a few small acquisitions which is really going to help them out in the future.

2016-11-29 COMMENT John Petrides

They have a massive balance sheet, $27 billion in cash, right now, but it is all held overseas. 3.3% dividend yield. The major player in the Internet of Things. They dominate the router and switches space. If Trump is able to get a tax holiday, where companies can repatriate cash, that is going to be a massive windfall for this company. Their balance sheet is AA rated. They have enough buying power to do acquisitions and navigate through the storm. The wave of the Internet of Things is real, and this is a key player.

2016-11-24 TOP PICK Lorne Steinberg

With a $150 billion market cap, has $40 billion in net cash, and throwing off $11-$12 billion a year of free excess cash flow. Selling for 9 or 10 times free cash flow. Every year the dividend goes up by double digits, and with all that cash, this dividend will double in the next 6-7 years or so. They remain as #1 in the world in each of their businesses. To buy a company like this at 10 or 11 times earnings and free cash flow, it is truly being given away for a company of this quality. Dividend yield of 3.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $33.15.)

2016-11-23 BUY Andy Nasr

The “Internet of Things” stock. It is really going to benefit from the increase you are seeing in mobile data traffic, which is going to increase threefold through to 2019 with traditional networking traffic, which is going to go up. They have their hands in a lot of different things. The only secular concern you have is the emergence of “Software Defined Networks”, where the hardware is being decoupled from the software. Cisco really sells products where the hardware and the software are completely integrated. If that happens, you could see a little margin pressure. They are trying to address that with their product offering. Longer-term he really likes this.

2016-11-22 COMMENT David Burrows

This is at the heart of the “Internet of Things”. Machines, appliances, etc. will be connected to the Internet in the next wave. This was one of the very large tech companies that was used as a source of funds in the last couple of weeks. He doesn’t think it’s fatal. The stock pulled back 7%-8% after making a new high just a few weeks ago. This is a conservative way to play the Internet of things, and is certainly one you could own. It generates tons of cash. (See Top Picks.)

2016-11-15 HOLD John Burke

He likes this because it has a strong free cash flow yield, in the 6% range. Pays a great dividend and is well run. The stock is starting to do better. This doesn’t have many competitors. He is not buying right now, but also not selling what he currently owns. 3.3% dividend yield.

Old style tech.  Tremendous upside of 42%.  It could come back to EBV+3 in bad markets.  It is a dividend play also.
