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 benefiting from solid security business. Strong contribution from Infrastructure Platforms and applications is a positive. Moreover, order strength and improving traction of the subscription-based business model are tailwinds. Further, strengthening collaboration portfolio, which includes Webex Teams, bodes well. Additionally, acquisitions of Voicea and CloudCherry hold promise. Cisco’s latest Silicon One strategy to enhance its network hardware business is expected to boost reveune base. However, weakness in service provider business in China remains a concern. Further, stiff competition from Arista and Juniper in switching and routing verticals is likely to create pricing pressure and impact profitability. Also, increasing investments on product enhancements are likely to limit margin expansion at least in the near-term." (1/15/2020)
  • 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)
