Macy's earnings and the July report on retail sales will be highlights for investors on Wednesday as a busy week for the retail industry rolls on.
Cisco Systems, Inc. ( CSCO) has been a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average since June 8, 2009. Before being a Dow component, Cisco was an $82.00 stock back in March 2000 and traded as low as $8.12 in October 2002. Analysts expect Cisco Systems to post earnings per share of 69 to 70 cents when the company reports results after the close on Wednesday, Aug. 15.
Cisco Systems Inc. will wrap up its fiscal year with an earnings report that could have investors focusing on the future instead of the results.
Multinational technology giant Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) reports fourth-quarter numbers after the bell on Wednesday, August 15, and I think those numbers could very well meet and/or exceed expectations. The chances of that happening are mixed, so the risk-reward on CSCO stock ahead of earnings isn’t great. Given improving growth fundamentals through markets like IoT, data centers, the cloud and cybersecurity, I reasonably see CSCO stock being worth $45 today.
Inc. is scheduled to report its fiscal fourth-quarter results after the market closes on Wednesday. Cisco is expected to report adjusted per-share earnings of 69 cents, according to analysts surveyed by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Analysts expect Cisco to post revenue of $12.76 billion, up 5.2% from a year ago.
The networking hardware provider's Catalyst 9000 switches and its security business will help drive revenue higher in the fourth quarter.
Cisco Systems (CSCO) has seen its stock price sink roughly 3% over the last three months as investors decide what to make of the historic tech giant's future. Cisco is coming off a relatively solid fiscal third quarter and has made a string of acquisitions that set it up for a stronger future. But the question is should investors buy CSCO stock ahead of the firm's earnings release Wednesday?
The San Mateo data security startup said it grew revenue by 250 percent in 2017 after growing by 300 percent in 2016. It projects it will more than double again this year.
With Cisco's shares having moved little since that selloff, expectations might be a little lower for Cisco's July quarter (fiscal fourth quarter) report. For the October quarter -- Cisco usually provides guidance within its report -- the consensus is for revenue of $12.58 billion (up 4%) and EPS of $0.69. Cisco's report is due after the close on Wednesday, and an earnings call is set for 4:30 p.m. ET.
