CSCO is just too large and lumbering to invest in anymore
Its not where you can make serious money. Even for a trade, it moves too slow. Trading the micro-caps is where you can make big money. Now don't get me wrong, there's a lot of junk out there in the micro-cap world but there's also some super quality companies and if you stick with them, you'll make a lot more than playing with large cap gainers of the past like CSCO, MSFT, INTC, ORCL etc.
I'm really going to have to reconsider The Street Authority's 'Forever Stocks'. Last I looked they still had INTC. which I got out of higher. I'll still be way up on CSCO, mainly because I sold half my shares several months ago. There's limits to patience.. .
