  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cisco is an IP-based networking company. Strength witnessed in the company’s Security and Applications segments are key catalysts. Order strength and improving traction of the subscription-based model were other tailwinds. Strong contribution from security, Infrastructure Platforms and applications is a positive. Order strength and improving traction of the subscription-based model are other tailwinds. Strengthening collaboration portfolio which now includes Webex Teams and Accompany bodes well. Further, buyout of Duo Security and Luxtera should help the company expand its IT and data center clientele. However, weakness in switching and routing is a headwind. Arista’s intention of manufacturing switches that connect campus networks is likely to hurt Cisco as it holds a dominant position in that market." (5/21/2019)
