COMMENT
Russian threats of invading Ukraine The real threat is interest rates. It's a long-term (1-3 years perhaps) consideration/challenge for investors and impacts how an investor values a company and makes investment decisions. Keep an eye on CPI data. What's going on with Russia-Ukraine is terrible from a humanity standpoint, but it doesn't impact her investing decisions; it's short-term.

BUY

When they report earnings, she expects a solid quarter, no negative surprises. This is exactly the company to own in this environment. Trades at 15x earnings, with expected 6-8% earnings growth for the next few years. It's do-able. As people work from home and the office, demands for networking will be higher and higher.
