Cisco investors have to be happy that the stock has at least responded to the strong earnings. Shares are up about 68 percent from a year ago (but only 50 percent from about Aug. 10 of a year ago; Cisco enjoyed an earnings bump last August). Why, in just the past six months, Cisco has...
Huh. Guess it's up only 4 percent for the past six months. And that jagged red line, that's Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR).
OK, I'm being disingenuous. Cisco hit a relative high six months ago. The two-year graph gives you:
Juniper isn't underwater there, it's just climbed less well than Cisco. Anyway, it's Juniper that's really broken free in the past 12 months, up to the $32 range from $13 last summer.
Cisco's call is at 1:30 p.m. PT. See you there.
