  • This Big Tech Disappointment Has Created an Opportunity

    By Timothy Green - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, JNPR, PANW

    Networking giant Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) announced earnings which beat analyst estimates on Aug. 14, but the market wasn't satisfied. The stock fell after-hours, and after weak guidance was given on the conference call, shares plummeted further. The next day, the stock opened down 7.5%, giving long-term investors an opportunity to buy the stock of a great company at a discount. Even though the market reacted poorly, there were more »

  • This Great IT Company Just Became Dirt Cheap

    By Adrian Campos - August 18, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    Shares of Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) went down 7% after the latest earnings call on August 14th. Considering that Cisco's latest quarter was pretty solid, with revenue rising by 6.2% year-over-year and GAAP earnings per share increasing to $0.42 for the quarter, up from $0.36 in the same period last year, could this be market overreaction? More importantly, does the current negative market sentiment represent an more »

  • Alcatel-Lucent's Positive Results Signal Strength for Networking

    By Nihar Patel - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    Alcatel-Lucent (ADR) (NYSE: ALU) has been a favorite of mine for almost a year now, and I am still not ready to chuck it into the trash pile. The recent earnings report and price action on the stock has given hope to people who believed in the company’s turnaround. There are things to like and dislike in the recent earnings release, but things seem to be moving in the more »

  • Hold Your Breath for Cisco's Earnings

    By Dan Sayers - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) has been ticking all the right boxes recently, and I'm convinced the company has a bright future ahead of it.

    In its third quarter, Cisco beat earnings per share expectations of $0.49 with actual earnings per share reaching $0.51. Overall sales grew 5% as well as demonstrating impressive year on year growth for several business segments including data center and service provider video, rising more »

  • Why Should This Acquisition Worry Competitors?

    By Mike Thiessen - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, JNPR, FIRE

    Investors and technology buffs are cheering the recent announcement that Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) had inked a merger deal with Columbia, Maryland-based cybersecurity firm Sourcefire (NASDAQ: FIRE). Despite its relatively modest $2.7 billion price tag, the deal promises to provide Cisco with a bevy of new security applications and could position the tech giant as the company to beat in the online security space. Although this move was not unexpected more »

  • The Clear Choice In Networking Systems

    By Matthew Frankel - August 9, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, IBM, JNPR

    As the world’s largest supplier of computer networking systems, many investors don’t consider Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) to be much of a growth story. After all, with sales of over $46 billion last year, how much more networking equipment could they sell? The answer is more than you may think!

    With routing and switches still evolving at a very high rate, Cisco is still a long way from more »

  • Is Juniper a Good Pick After Reporting Earnings?

    By Mark Girland - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, HPQ, JNPR

    In late July, Juniper (NYSE: JNPR) released its results for the second quarter of the fiscal year. Since the tech company enjoyed a fresh cycle of customer investments, its earnings increased 71% in quarterly profits. This meant net income rose to $98 million from $57.7 million in 2012. Its operating margin increased to 12.0% from 8.1% in the second quarter of the year prior and rose from more »

  • Multiple New Acquisitions May Enhance This Company's Position

    By Veeksha Rao - August 3, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, JNPR, FIRE

    Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) is a market leader in the networking segment. The company specializes in IP based switching products and has global presence. With over 60% market share, the company has massive clout. Cisco is now trying to augment its position with organic growth as well as acquisitions and the company had been mulling purchase of various outfits including Sourcefire (NASDAQ: FIRE).

  • Is This Networking Company a Good Stock to Buy?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) has been doing well so far in its fiscal year (the third quarter of which ended in April 2013.) In its most recent 10-Q, the company reported that revenue had risen 5% in fiscal Q3 versus a year earlier, in line with the improvements in Cisco’s top line from the first half of the FY. Pretax margins have stayed more or less constant, resulting in similar more »

  • 3 Lucrative Tech Buys for This Month

    By Shweta Dubey - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, FNSR, JNPR

    According to MarketLine, the world network equipment industry is expected to grow to $184 billion in 2015, a 34% increase as compared to 2010. The reason for this growth is increasing Internet data demand, new trends, upgraded technology, and new products. This has encouraged telecommunication carriers and Internet service providers to upgrade their networks, driving the growth of networking companies.

  • Cisco Is the Best Pick in the Networking Sector

    By Ishtiaq Ahmed - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    The technology sector has seen a lot of changes in the past five years, characterized by an era of cloud computing, virtualization, and smartphones. Cloud computing is among the fastest growing segments in the industry. At the moment, networking equipment manufacturers are trying to expand into the cloud and their focus has turned to software from hardware.

    Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO), in my opinion, is ideally positioned to capitalize on more »

  • Better to Bet on Titans in Computer Equipment Industry

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, JNPR, RVBD

    The computer equipment industry is another one of those markets where betting on the titans is often the best choice. The giants have enough cash to buy up companies when appropriate, and expand into sub-markets. While there is also major potential profits when investing in small cap companies in this sector -- due largely to potential takeovers -- knowing which firm to buy on a hunch that it could be bought out more »

  • Stop Ignoring This Tech Stock

    By Ted Cooper - July 19, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, HPQ, JNPR

    Technology companies come and go. The disruptive nature of the industry makes picking long-term winners a difficult task. However, sometimes market leaders have such a strong grip on their core markets that long-term investors are rewarded.

    I believe that is the case with Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO). Cisco is absolutely dominant in its two core markets: switches and routers. Although the company is still at risk of losing out to more »

  • Beware of the Practices of This Company

    By Shmulik Karpf - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: BRCM, JNPR, CRM

    Stocks options are a wonderful instrument. The underlying rationale behind stock option grants is to align the interests of employees with the interests of shareholders, thereby turning employees into "mini owners." But this wonderful instrument, although born good, can very quickly turn into a weapon for mass dilution of current shareholders, disguised in the form of option grants.

  • Cisco's Growth Should Continue With an Improving Economy

    By Nihar Patel - July 5, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) reported earnings and showed higher than expected revenue growth. Earnings growth was impressive as well, but it is revenue that has really dogged the company for some time. The perception that the company had a revenue growth issue has kept the stock down. Top line growth has been consistent, but it seemed like the market expected this to stall at some point and Cisco would spin its more »

  • Alcatel-Lucent's New Chief Lays Out Restructuring Plan

    By Nihar Patel - June 29, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    The new plan may sound like more of the same at Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) since the last chief also had a restructuring plan. However, the execution of that plan was minimal and left much to be desired even as laid out on paper. Not enough jobs were cut and in my opinion, not enough parts of the company were on the chopping block. The company’s market cap is very more »

  • Analyzing Networking Companies' Mostly Lackluster Earnings

    By Nihar Patel - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CSCO, JNPR

    Networking has been having a tough time. 2012 was just an awful year, and 2013 was off to a slow start. I took my time writing an earnings article, because I wanted to wait for Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) to join the bunch and give it some thought. As far as initiatives go, Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) needs to do more if it plans on returning to profitability. Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPRmore »)

  • This Tech Powerhouse Has 20% Upside Potential

    By Red Chip - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, IBM, JNPR

    Against all odds, Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) has managed to beat estimates yet again. The company reported another stellar quarter, showing further improvements in its enterprise business. The quarter also makes the case for a long-term investment in the company due to a smooth execution of Cisco's new strategic plan and stable performance despite a poor industry outlook. Analysis shows that the company has 20% upside at current levels more »
