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•

Donald Yacktman Comments on Cisco Systems - Oct 26, 2017

Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) shares appreciated in the quarter along with strength in the information technology sector. The company continues to migrate its business from larger one-time sales toward subscription services, which makes the company significantly more stable and predictable. Over time, we think the shares will be awarded a significantly higher valuation as others recognize the company’s transformation to increased recurring fees, something we have already seen in Microsoft and Oracle.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Cisco - Aug 15, 2017

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) fell after reporting solid earnings results but providing weaker-than-expected earnings guidance for the coming quarter. Cisco is transforming its business, moving toward subscription services and away from larger one-time sales, and if successful, we think the shares will be awarded a significantly higher valuation, similar to what has occurred with Microsoft and Oracle more recently.
