Pays a 3% dividend and offers a good balance sheet. Be patient. It'll take time to turn around the ship. In fact, you can buy more now.

Their earnings were not bad, beating earnings. However, they are too enterprise focused and behind the curve. It could change in 2021 as people get back to work. Has started to like it more and the stock is still cheap. Model 5% growth. They are trying to get more into software which is positive.

CSCO vs. IBM Missed the boat on cloud, not a great growth rate. Revenue's down. Nice dividend. Doesn't love it, not buying it. For dividends, likes IBM better as its risk/reward is better.

Tech has been on a rip-roaring bull market, yet Cisco just can't get out of its own way. It's close to 52-week low, whereas NASDAQ is close to 52-week highs. If you can't fly with a huge tailwind, you can't fly if things get tougher. Carve laggards out of your portfolio.

They may not do well in the work-at-home space. This space demands more and more bandwidth and dispersion is greater. Cisco Webex is a competitor to Microsoft Teams. The average ticket for their product is very high and board members are reticent of spending. Once we see more clarity for after the pandemic, it will do well. He believes in the leadership team.

(A Top Pick Nov 13/19, Down 15%) Very decent provider for 5G. Still likes it. Target of $47.75. Decent valuation of 14x, with a yield of 3.7%. Solid fundamentals. Expanding the business from hardware to software as a subscription. Quite a bit of upside.

CSCO vs. ZM Zoom is one of the most expensive stocks at price to revenue, so this is a red flag. Gives him pause. How much future success is already built into the price? An alternative is Cisco, with their add-on to access what Zoom does. CSCO is stable, with a reasonable valuation. Companies eventually will need to invest in switching and routers, and this will come straight Cisco's way.

He targets $49.12. They've disappointed the last little while. A new CEO came in last year, and he will likely shakes things up. Topline growth should recover by the end of 2020 as more investments are made. Cisco keeps buying back shares, even during the pandemic. It's a yawner now, but should pick up because Cisco is a massive supplier of 5G which is coming.

Recent earnings beat, but the market didn't like it. COVID is hurting them. Their business is focus on on-premise tech while peers are the cloud operators. Cisco is migrating to the cloud late. 14x earnings with a nice dividend, which is enticing, but can they make their growth rate? The risk-reward isn't here. This could turn into an IBM and could take years to turn this ship around. This could be a value trap.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Despite the negative price action following most recent earnings, we see CSCO as a Top Pick -- with upside over 15%. We like the yield and feel the cash flow supports its level and may lead to another increase as it has for the past 9 consecutive years. EPS and revenue both beat analyst expectations. The company is achieving goals of moving to a more subscription based revenue model for its software -- now representing 78% of revenue in that category. Analysts were negative on the next quarter outlook, but that can be attributed to the continuation of the pandemic slowdown of the economy. We would trade this with a relatively tight stop-loss at $40. Yield 2.99% (Analysts’ price target is $49.35)
