CSCO will get new price targets in the 27-28 range
Csco has the lowest pe in it's sector at a measly 13.63 based on today's close of 21.14 and eps. of 1.55.
That said, earnings grew at 10.4% q/q, 12.7% y/y. 2013 eps. estimate is 1.96, 2014 is 2.14. There is a high probability that csco gets to 2.14 this year, but no less than 2.06. 2.06 x 13.63 = 28.07.
We will get upgrades this week and into next. csco might see 22-23 by next fri.
Too bad csco won't separate the router division from the cloud/video/security where some segments are growing in the 30-100% range.
Record revenue record earnings and a fairly positive outlook. CSCO is in the first inning of reinventing itself. The goal of being the number 1 IT company will happen. With their billions of cash they will get there faster than one thinks. 14 acquisitions in those high growth sectors is just the start.
I see upgrades and a lot of CROW eating from JPM, C, and a slew of others. Do not be surprised if there are 8-9 upgrades over the next week. You might not think that 10% earnings growth is such a big deal, on a mega cap, but it is. After 4 quarters of flat earnings stuck at either .48 or .47, today's .53 is big. This is a value changer, stock will run with the upgrades at least to 22-23 with many PT raises to my 27-28. Will HAPPEN.
