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 an IP-based networking company. Strong contribution from acquisitions, security, Infrastructure Platforms and applications drove are positives. We believe that Cisco’s expanding footprint in the rapidly growing security market presents significant growth opportunity. 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 over the past one year. However, weakness in switching and routing is a headwind. Ongoing transition to subscription-based model will continue to hurt the top line. Further, dampening service provider business and intense competition from peers are other concerns." (7/17/2018) 2.
