What are analysts saying about Cisco Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cisco Systems stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cisco Systems is the leading provider of IP-based networking and other products. Intensifying competition from several smaller players, slowing order growth from service providers and challenges in the emerging markets are the primary headwinds. These primarily affected its top-line, which declined year-over-year in the recently concluded second-quarter of fiscal 2017. Nonetheless, we believe Cisco’s expanding footprint in the rapidly growing security and data center market are promising. Moreover, partnerships with the likes of Pure Storage, and IBM will help Cisco to gain signficant traction in the data center, cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) market in the long haul. Further, continued share buyback and dividend hikes are positives. We note that the stock has underperformed  the broader market over the last six-months." (2/20/2017)

  • Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "Cisco posted a good FQ2 and guided FQ3 in line with consensus. Service Provider is improving and Security was strong. Deferred revenue was also up meaningfully as Cisco transitions its business to a more subscription-oriented model. We continue to see value in CSCO shares despite recent strength. Solid FQ2'17 results. Revenue/non-GAAP EPS of $11.6 billion/$0.57 compared to consensus of $11.6 billion/$0.56. Product gross margin of 62.4% was down 90 bps YoY due to pricing and product mix, though partially offset by productivity improvements." (2/16/2017)
  • Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We come away from the Cisco print thinking the company is running hard to hold its ground. The shift to subscription is estimated to have trimmed revenues by 1-2%. OK, but revenues declined by 3% on an asreported basis and 2% adjusting for the divestiture against an easy comparison. If it was for offshore cash repatriation and tax relief, we think the shares would be lower. Switching declined 5% and Routing down 10%. These core product areas still account for over half of Product Sales and likely half of Service Revenues. Further, despite exiting the near-breakeven Service Provider Video business, Product GMs continue to slide. Cisco has cash and a potential for a windfall, but we don't see growth." (2/16/2017)
  • Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We believe Cisco will meet our 2Q:FY17 revenue estimate of $11.46 billion (Street is at $11.55 billion) and our EPS projection of $0.57 (Street is at $0.56). Our revenue estimate reflects a 7% QoQ decrease in sales and weaker than the five-year average decline of 2.5%. Cisco's 2Q:FY17 outlook calls for sales to fall by 2% to 4% YoY (i.e., $11.27 billion to $11.51 billion, excluding $93 million in CPE sales in 2Q:FY16) with pro forma EPS of $0.55-0.57. This earnings season, trends across the supply chain as it relates to networking/telecom programs benefitted from modest seasonality but the results were nothing spectacular. As it relates to our networking coverage, the results were more volatile with the stocks of both F5 and Juniper Networks punished meaningfully after their respective earnings reports." (2/14/2017)
