Cashtaggers Bullish on $CSCO Before Earnings
Cisco shares crept upward today in advance of its second fiscal quarter earnings announcement. The networking company is scheduled to report after-the-bell.
Investors expect $0.46 EPS on $11.18 Billion in revenues, according to Estimize.com’s consensus of 49 estimates. Wall Street consensus is roughly the same: $0.46 EPS on $11.04 Billion in sales.
Investors and analysts have become increasingly bullish on the stock in the past month. $CSCO has climbed 2.3% in the past 30 days. StockTwits sentiment analytics show about 91% of users are bullish ahead of earnings. Today, TheStreet and Sterne Agee reiterated their “buy” ratings, according to the Analyst Ratings Network.

But is the bullishness warranted? Cisco’s stock tumbled nearly 11% after executives warned economic conditions in emerging markets would drag down revenues in the second fiscal quarter by 8% to 10%. Its first fiscal quarter sales also fell short of analysts’ expectations for the same reason, according to the company.

Cisco never really recovered from the guidance related sell-off on Nov. 14. The stock is still down more than 5%. As a result, some investors believe expectations are still low enough to warrant a post-earnings pop.
