Cisco (CSCO) Bull Bear Case

In the bull case, Cisco stock will trade at its five-year historical average P/E multiple of 15x, with a target price of $33, if it is able to maintain its leading market share in switches and routers with higher margins. Its Nexus line will be a major driver as it offers services for cloud, big data and data centers and is based on application-centric infrastructure. In the bear case, we assume that Cisco stock trades at a 20% discount to its five-year minimum P/E multiple, making a target price of $15, since the headwinds in emerging markets and disruptions in software-defined networking (SDN) will hinder the company’s financial performance.

Exxon Mobil (XOM) Industry Analysis

The entire energy sector is undergoing a transformation. Most countries have accepted the environmentally harmful techniques as a need to recover vast amounts of energy resources locked in unconventional sources such as shale formations. These techniques have also enabled oil companies to produce more from existing reserves. Moreover, environmental concerns are causing oil companies to produce more natural gas as opposed to crude oil because the former is considered a cleaner fuel. National oil companies have increased their acreage holdings in foreign countries as they aim to add more reserves and expand their geographical diversity. For integrated oil companies, this means greater competition to gain operating contracts for energy reserves.

IBM (IBM) Earnings Review

IBM reported its third quarter earnings, missing revenue estimates but beating earnings estimates. IBM has missed out on revenue estimates for four out of the past five quarters but earnings have been above consensus estimates. This quarter, IBM’s hardware segment suffered the most, with revenues declining 16.6% YoY. The decline was primarily led by soft demand in emerging markets, especially China, where execution issues and country’s impending economic reforms have resulted in procurement delays by the Chinese government. Global Technology services, another major segment, fell 4.3% and the Software segment had slight growth of 1% led by middleware and offset by a fall in operating systems. Geographically, EMEA and APAC both experienced a decline.
