Basic company information

Cisco is an American multinational company that develops and sells networking equipment. The corporation was founded in 1984 by Leonard Bosack and Sandra Lerner. They had a background in computing maintenance that helped them develop the multiprotocol router. Bosack and Lerner left the company in 1990 when venture capitalists brought in professional managers.

Cisco shares were listed on the stock exchange in 1990. By that time, the company's capitalization was $224. At the time of the IPO, the stock was selling for $18. Since the IPO, Cisco shares are traded on the stock exchange under the ticker NASDAQ: CSCO. This asset attracts the attention of not only retail traders but also large investors. Notable holders of Cisco include Bank of America Corporation, Bank Of New York Mellon Corporation, and The Vanguard Group, Inc.

The company's activity

In the beginning, the company was engaged in corporate routers. Later Cisco changed its profile to the largest developer in the high-tech sphere. In 1996, the corporation managed to enter the market of ATM equipment after the acquisition of StrataCom. Developer of network equipment produces products for IP telephony, Wi-Fi access points, video surveillance systems, servers, etc.

One of the secrets of the corporation's success is a multi-level certification system for computer network engineers. It involves checking the knowledge of Cisco products, as well as networking technologies and protocols. Professional certification of this corporation is valued even by companies that use equipment of other developers.

The latest news on the stock price

On the morning of August 18, Cisco shares gained 7.2% after the publication of the quarterly report. The technology giant reported excellent financial results, which provoked a sharp increase in investor interest in the asset. Analysts emphasize that the figures for the fourth quarter of 2022 were virtually no strong growth compared to the previous reporting period. However, they were higher than many investors and experts expected.

At the end of fiscal 2022, the corporation's management presented projections for the next year. In 2023, the company expects Cisco's adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $3.49 to $3.56. This will be rather slow growth of this indicator. In the first quarter, the figure could grow by no more than 2 percent. Over the next year, adjusted earnings per share are expected to increase by 4-6%. But analysts say that will be enough to meet investor expectations.

✅ Benefits of investing in Cisco

  • In 2022, adjusted gross margins in the services sector were rising. Cisco expects it to stabilize at 63 percent to 64 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • The corporation pays dividends to shareholders. In 2022, the dividend yield on Cisco stock exceeded 3%. This is an added benefit for holders of the networking giant's securities.

❌ Disadvantages of investing in Cisco

  • The company's earnings growth in 2022 has been slowed due to component shortages. Adjusted gross profit in the product sector fell by more than 60 percent during the year. This was due to higher costs of purchasing components and dealing with supply chain disruptions.
  • Technology stocks are under pressure from the Fed in 2022. Financial regulators are taking fairly stringent measures to curb skyrocketing inflation, which includes aggressively raising interest rates.

Financial performance

Cisco's fourth quarter of 2022 ended June 30. For that period, the networking giant's revenue remained flat for the third quarter of 2022 at $13.1 billion. Cisco's adjusted earnings per share were $0.83. For the full fiscal year 2022, sales were up 3%. Adjusted earnings increased 4% to $3.36 per CSCO share. The Secure, Agile Networks divisions generated the most revenue, about 46%. The division related to the development of the Internet for the Future brought the company about 10% of its revenues. The Comprehensive Security division generated 7% of the total revenue.

The general director of the company noted that in 2022 the level of orders for the products increased significantly. This allows the corporation to improve its forecast for fiscal 2023. Thus, Cisco expects sales growth of 4-6% throughout the year. The management is optimistic despite temporary difficulties with component supply. In 2023, revenues are expected to grow by 2-4% in the first quarter. For the whole fiscal year, analysts expect the growth of this indicator by 4-6%.
