The world is going through its fourth industrial revolution, which is data-driven and a primary reason behind the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT). Various enterprises are investing heavily to rapidly digitize their organizations, reflecting the shift to IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI) Machine Learning (ML), digitization and various cloud solutions.
As such, Cisco is investing heavily to build products and solutions that leverage. The company, with its recent product launches, is trying to address the megatrends such as hybrid cloud, cloud security, 400-gig, 5G and WIFI 6, which is likely to drive the stock in the long run.
Cisco has guided revenue growth for the first quarter of 2023 to be between 2-4% compared with the year-ago quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $13.33 billion, suggesting growth of 3.33% from the year-ago period.
However, overall negative sentiments about the cyclical tech industry due to rising inflation, probable recession due to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s interest rate hikes and volatile Forex conditions have led to the fall in Cisco’s share price. The stock has tumbled 23.8% in the year-to-date period compared with the Zacks Computer – Networking industry’s decline of 23.6%.
Further, as it ventures into new markets, Cisco is experiencing stiff competition from the likes of Wipro Limited (WIT – Free Report) in cloud securities solutions.
Wipro expanded its collaboration with VMware to help customers move data to the cloud at a reduced cost and operate in a multi-cloud infrastructure. With the recent collaboration, Wipro’s FullStride cloud services will be able to provide its security services to customers for no additional cost and protect data while operating in a multi-cloud architecture. This is expected to help Wipro garner more customers amid rising competition.
However, to deal with rising competition in cloud solutions and networking space, Cisco, which currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), expanded its business partnership with General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), a business unit of General Dynamics (GD – Free Report) . You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
GD is helping Cisco to maintain its position as the largest player in the networking space. The two companies have collaborated to deliver Cisco Private 5G services to various government enterprises for IoT and edge use cases.
Cisco is expected to benefit in the coming quarters from the easing of supply chain constraints, which is likely to benefit the company in meeting its backlogs and aid top-line growth. As the company is also adding alternative suppliers, redesigning hundreds of products to use alternative components with similar capabilities and targeted price increases is likely to aid the company in fending off cost inflation and supply chain constraints. These are expected to aid the company’s top-line growth in the coming quarters.

At the center of everything we do is a strong commitment to independent research and sharing its profitable discoveries with investors. This dedication to giving investors a trading advantage led to the creation of our proven Zacks Rank stock-rating system. Since 1988 it has more than doubled the S&P 500 with an average gain of +24.51% per year. These returns cover a period from January 1, 1988 through September 12, 2022. Zacks Rank stock-rating system returns are computed monthly based on the beginning of the month and end of the month Zacks Rank stock prices plus any dividends received during that particular month. A simple, equally-weighted average return of all Zacks Rank stocks is calculated to determine the monthly return. The monthly returns are then compounded to arrive at the annual return. Only Zacks Rank stocks included in Zacks hypothetical portfolios at the beginning of each month are included in the return calculations. Zacks Ranks stocks can, and often do, change throughout the month. Certain Zacks Rank stocks for which no month-end price was available, pricing information was not collected, or for certain other reasons have been excluded from these return calculations.
