Really likes. Massive free cashflow. Aggressively buys back shares and increases dividend. Becoming more of a SaaS, a positive change, which should increase margins and drive the stock higher.

They have not reinvented themselves. They have not restructured. The valuation is reasonable and the dividend is safe. 5G will not fuel future growth for them. He would pass on it.

Last year, it suffered from decreased spending and are slowly losing market share. Are transitioning more to a hardware company. It lacks growth. Key customers are telecoms. You can buy a higher-growth, software company like MSFT or Apple, but these are expensive now (wait for a dip).

Must look at it holistically. With proliferation of fibre and densification of optical equipment was a tailwind though this has slowed down. Another aspect is the sanctions that are allowing Cisco to compete when otherwise it would not have been. We have seen big moves from legacy tech due to the broadening of the market. Could see some more upsides, but would look at more mature tech.

Won't get into too much trouble holding it over time. He prefers higher growth exposure, such as semis and FANGs. Not too much risk owning it. It's big and established, akin to IBM.

The street has been wary of this name and was disappointed by its quarterly after hours today, but he sees a bright outlook. This should be a big winner as enterprise computing comes back this year as the economy reopens further. Right now is a classic buy on weakness.

Sold in the last week at his price target. Massive supplier into 5G. Fantastic earnings. He'd look to get back in at the mid-40s. You'll probably see an opportunity later this year. Decent dividend yield of 2.8%.

Pays a decent dividend and trades around 19x PE. It will benefit when 5G comes along. There's a lot of money for broadband growth coming as we transition to 5G networks. Not a pricey stock, but he sees more growth in software stocks. CSCO will do better though given 5G.

(A Top Pick Feb 25/20, Up 17%) Existed some months ago. Was spinning its wheel. WebEx is a good point, but the hardware side was lacking. There are better opportunities in the technology space.

This has been moving up nicely as enterprise 5G is coming. Cisco is transitioning from hardware to more software, and we're reaching the inflection point when the valuation goes higher. It reports Tuesday.

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.
