2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Cisco Systems Inc - Jul 25, 2014

Networking and communications company Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) outperformed as it reported earnings and guidance that were better than consensus expectations. The company’s gross margins improved, which we believe is a sign that the business is stabilizing.

Meridian Funds Comments on Cisco Systems Inc - Jun 20, 2014

Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) also generated losses for the Fund during the period as earnings expectations were recently cut due to weakness in emerging markets. We are regarding our investment in Cisco with caution, but for now we continue to hold the shares due to the attractive dividend yield and the potential for dividend growth, even with muted earnings growth, enabled by the company’s low payout ratio and strong balance sheet.



From Meridian Funds's semi-annual report ended December 31, 2013.
