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
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

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.

Cisco Systems, Inc. was incorporated in California in December 1984. The Company sells networking and communications products and provides related services. The company's two main products are switches and routers (devices that manage network traffic within local-area networks and between different networks), but Cisco essentially touches everything in the networking industry, from security to storage to application switching. Cisco dominates the data networking industry, and its Ethernet switches, which move data along local computer networks, are ubiquitous in business information technology. Cisco's share of the $21 billion switch market has remained near 70% in each of the past five years, while closest rival Hewlett-Packard languishes at 5% share. The firm's routers, used by telecom and cable service providers to move data across long distances, are also the market favorite. Cisco and Juniper Networks enjoy a virtual duopoly, with Cisco the clear leader. Cisco has also used its dominance in corporate data networking to successfully move into adjacent and new markets, including network security, video conferencing, and home networking. Cisco enters new markets typically through acquisitions and uses its global salesforce and broad distribution channel to quickly gain share. The firm integrates technology into its switches when feasible and aggressively bundles when not, making it extremely difficult for smaller firms to compete. Collectively, these newer products account for roughly 25% of Cisco's $40 billion in annual revenue and have grown 34% on average during the past three years.
