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 report tomorrow and he expects mixed results, but overall he likes this company. Cisco has suffered a little from the lockdown, but videos shot for interviews are using Cisco equipment. This is a boom for the company.

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.
