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.

(A Top Pick Aug 22/19, Down 10%) Their product that competes with Zoom has done well. The rest of the business is shaky. It's a timing issue. Well positioned for the next 10 years. Not expensive. He'd be a buyer and a holder.

In 2000, Cisco stock fell and still hasn't returned to that level. They transitioned from hardware to software like cybersecurity. Their last quarterly earnings were down, because of COVID halting consumer demand. See his top picks for a better stock that offers dividend growth.

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)

5G? CSCO has a 14 times PE ratio and 2.8% dividend yield. They have been able to grow by buying a lot of companies. 5G spending may get delayed in to 2021, so this may reduce earnings this year. They have made acquisitions to be able to compete with their peers.

He owns this in their large cap portfolio. The company is positioning itself well for 5G connectivity. They have had to pivot from being the back bone of the router space to now also be a software company. Webex is a popular video platform during COVID-19. It is not very a very expensive multiple. Only about 3% of their revenue is tied to China. He would be a buyer here.

5G deployment is a key theme for him right now. NOK and CSCO are others in the space. He much prefers ERIC overall -- he thinks it could go to $12 per share.

Managers have done a great job morphing into cybersecurity. Yes, Cisco will be impacted by current spending on IT (with flat or slightly declining revenues this year), but Cisco will remain a huge cash flow and dividend grower. There's strong demand for internet security which definitely benefits Cisco.

They are the leader in end to end IT security. There has been a selloff because of a weaker economy. They will raise their dividend double digits until the cows come home. (Analysts’ price target is $51.43)

Problem is all the big techs had a big run. Long-term trajectory is up and to the right. Dividend should slowly grow. A better entry point would make this a core holding. Challenge is they need a new product as a catalyst.
