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 is benefitting from expanding footprint in the rapidly growing security market presents significant growth opportunity. Strong contribution from acquisitions, security, Infrastructure Platforms and applications remains a positive. Strengthening collaboration portfolio which now includes Webex Teams and AI-based Accompany bodes well. Partnerships with Telenor, Apple, IBM, Microsoft and Google Cloud are positive. Divestiture of a portion of Cisco’s NDS video assets is likely to mitigate the sluggishness witnessed in other product segment. Shares of Cisco have outperformed industry in the past one year. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, weakness in switching and routing is a headwind. Ongoing transition to subscription-based model will continue to hurt the top line. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release." (8/2/2018) 2. Royal Bank of Canada analysts commented, "We also believe there’s room for SG&A to come in better than UAA’s conservative plan. Above-consensus FY18 EPS guidance seems likely We expect UAA to guide to modest sales growth, stronger for FY18 than FY17, driven by international and DTC."
