What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cisco Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cisco Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cisco’s first-quarter fiscal 2020 results were unimpressive. Revenues climbed marginally on a year-over-year basis due to sluggish performance from enterprise, commercial and service provider end markets. The company blamed sluggish macro-economic conditions (due to the U.S.-China trade, Brexit and others) and a slowing China economy for the weakness. Management expects growth in these markets to be muted in the near term. Notably, Cisco’s shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, switching and wireless solutions are expected to grow. Cisco benefited from solid performance of its security business, which is expected to continue in the near term. Additionally, acquisitions of Voicea and CloudCherry hold promise." (11/15/2019)
  • 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We appreciate Cisco’s desire to reinforce its position as the leader in enterprise networking as customers demand higher throughput solutions." (7/10/2019)
