  • The Biggest Networking Company Is On Sale Right Now

    By Matthew Frankel - May 9, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, JNPR, NTGR

    The world’s largest maker of computer networking products, Cisco’s (NASDAQ: CSCO) share performance has not been quite as spectacular as that of the rest of the market.  For such as stable tech giant to actually be trading below where it was for most of the peak recessionary years says something.  Either Cisco is fundamentally weaker than it has been in the past, or we are looking at one more »

  • This Under-Appreciated Networking Company Deserves a Look

    By Matthew Frankel - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, FFIV, NTGR

    NETGEAR (NASDAQ: NTGR) is what I refer to as an “under the radar” stock.  This is a company whose products are very widely used (either you or someone very close to you most likely has a NETGEAR router in the house), but the stock doesn’t get much coverage in the media or on investment websites.  With the company set to report earnings on Friday, I thought now was a more »

  • Is This Tech Company in Trouble?

    By Leo Sun - April 18, 2013 | Tickers: CSCO, NTGR

    Shares of network equipment maker Netgear (NASDAQ: NTGR) slid recently after the San Jose, CA.-based company warned that its first quarter earnings and revenue, which it will fully report on April 25, will come in below expectations.

  • NASDAQ Stalls as Volume Finishes Higher

    By Joshua Hayes - February 13, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BWLD, INVN, KORS, NTGR, PCYC, RAX

    NASDAQ Composite continues to lag behind the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. Volume rose across the board, but remained below average. The NASDAQ notched a stall day and although it failed to register a day of distribution. Stalling days are nothing new and all it will take is for the NASDAQ to eclipse today’s high. Two star industries on the day were XLF and XHB more »

  • Consumer Electronics Show: Stocks that Catch the Eye

    By Nate Wooley - January 16, 2013 | Tickers: NTGR, NVDA, LG

    CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, is over for 2013. Another year past of gadgets, devices, gizmos and such, all designed to tempt people into spending money or making a statement about themselves. I'm sure it's a good, but exhausting, time for the attendees.

    This year, though, there seems to be a belief that the idea is less about pitching big, game-changing items than about the smaller things that more »

  • This Tech Company Is More Than Just a ‘Cupertino Connection’

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - January 11, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BRCM, CMCSA, GOOG, NTGR | Editor's Choice

    To most tech enthusiasts, Broadcom (NASDAQ: BRCM) is known just as an Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) supplier. For the curious investors, though, that start to peel back the covers on this chip maker, there are many bullish growth drivers in addition to its Cupertino connection.

    Earlier this week, we discussed some recent comments made by Broadcom's CEO (see the full recap here on Insider Monkey) on the subject of its more »

    By Steve Symington - November 21, 2012 | Tickers: ARRS, CSCO, NTGR

    "The Internet has done so much to change the way we live, work, learn and play that it’s sometimes easy to assume the online revolution is over. But I believe we're only halfway through a 30-year process of profound transformation." - Patrick Lo, Chairman, CEO, and co-founder of Netgear

    So begins an intriguing guest post written by Patrick Lo for Forbes last December, in which he briefly describes Netgear more »

  • This Networking Company is Ahead of the Competition

    By Daniel James - November 16, 2012 | Tickers: CSCO, HPQ, NTGR

    In this age of information technology, networking is perhaps the most crucial link in the way people communicate today. As internet penetration continues to grow in emerging markets such as China and India, we can assume that producers of networking products will see increasing demand for their products. Netgear (NASDAQ: NTGR) is a major producer of networking hardware, with a strong presence in emerging markets. Additionally, they are undervalued compared more »

  • All Eyes on Google's TV Show.

    By Saif Faridi - October 8, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, GOOG, NTGR, SNE

    The war has begun again for “cord-cutters” looking to replace expensive cable TV services with non-expensive gadgets that stream movies and TV shows from the Internet through free subscription, and pay-per-view services.

    And this war is amongst five most popular streaming media player devices against each other, with their features, functions, specifications, and quality of implementation as the weapons.

    Let’s look at their strengths and the chance to win more »

    In a previous article I talked about choosing a tablet.  Now, we'll address how to best get internet access.  What is best for you depends on several things.  First and foremost, do you really need internet access everywhere you go?  Do you already have a home computer?  If not, can you borrow one?  Do you have a broadband internet connection already at home?  I will explore your options for more »

    By Phil Cutajar - May 21, 2012 | Tickers: CSCO, JNPR, NTGR

  • To the Cloud, and beyond… (Part 3)

    By Phil Cutajar - April 27, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, CSCO, GOOG, MSFT, NTGR

    Welcome to my multi-part blog aimed at demystifying “The Cloud”. Although The Cloud is practically a household term, widely used in the media, its application is so broad it has lost some of its meaning. To help define The Cloud I have categorized the various Cloud offerings into five major focus areas;

    1. Personal subscription cloud services
    2. Personal private storage clouds
    3. Private enterprise clouds
    4. Enterprise platform clouds
    5. Enterprise service clouds

  • To the Cloud... and beyond (part 2)

    By Phil Cutajar - April 26, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, GOOG, NTGR, SSNLF, STX, WDC

    In my last blog entry I highlighted the broad and diverse use of the technical term “The Cloud”, which has been extensively used (perhaps abused) in marketing and the media to the point where it has practically become a household term.  Although “The Cloud” is so broadly used, its meaning is… well, somewhat cloudy. To help lift the fog a little I have created a categorization of the various Cloud more »

  • Trailing Stops – A Sure Way To Lock In Losses

    By Chad Henage - April 10, 2012 | Tickers: AFL, BPI, GOOG, NTGR

    “You forgot the number one rule of investing – cash preservation.” This was a recent comment on a Motley Fool article I read. They went on to say that the investor in question (who had experienced some losses), “should have put in trailing stops at 6%, 8%, 10%, 12% or whatever percentage you are willing to lose”. The sad part about this comment is, this investor actually believes that this is a good way to “protect” your portfolio. Let me debunk that myth right now. The only thing that trailing stops do, is guarantee that you will lock in losses. I honestly couldn't find this comment again when I tried. Let's be clear, the reason you invest is to grow your net worth, if you're more concerned cash preservation, the stock market is not the place to be.

  • The Big Box Retailer Risk

    By Shawn Robinson - January 3, 2012 | Tickers: ATVI, BBY, GME, MJN, NTGR, SHLD, WMT, WHR

    Sears Holdings (NASDAQ: SHLD) announced last week that they plan to close over 100 Sears and Kmart stores to trim costs due to poor holiday sales. That news sent shares of the retailer down around 25% as investors fear that Sears will continue to have trouble operating in this competitive environment.

    Investors also reacted to the news by sending shares of Whirlpool (NYSE: WHR) down almost 9%. Why? Because according more »
