Like most stocks, Cisco Systems Stock (CSCO) has been directly affected by the US China trade deal. Yesterday Cisco shares declined after the projected revenue would fall 3% to 5%. According to CEO Chuck Robbins on a conference call, it was caused by a general weakness in demand. “Robbins said, “It feels like there’s a bit of a pause. ” Cisco has added more than 5% since the October 10-month low and are currently trading at the monthly maximum. Yesterday, November 13, after the market closed, the company reported for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 with results higher than Wall Street’s expectations. Revenue remained virtually unchanged at $13.16 billion, earnings per share increased 12% YoY to $0.84.
Over the past week, Cisco shares rose by 0.39%. The S&P 500 index increased by 0.56% for the same period.
