10:33 EDTCSCOCisco rises after two analysts boost rating on shares
Cisco Systems (CSCO) is advancing after two analysts upgraded the stock in notes to investors earlier today. William Blair analyst Jason Ader upgraded the shares to Outperform from Market Perform. The company has taken several positive steps, including reducing its costs, instituting a dividend, and getting out of consumer businesses at which it did not excel, Ader wrote. Moreover, looming threats to Cisco's business will not emerge as quickly as previously expected, and the company should continue to execute well, the analyst added. Cisco's stock is relatively safe and inexpensive, Ader believes. Meanwhile, Robert W. Baird analyst Jayson Noland raised the stock to Outperform from Neutral. The firm's research indicates that Cisco is executing very well, Noland wrote. Like Ader, Noland believes that the company has been boosted by its restructuring efforts, while it's unlikely to be threatened by new software networking technologies in the near future. Noland identified Cisco as his favorite large cap stock for 2013, and he increased his price target on the shares to $25 from $21. In mid-morning trading, Cisco rose 30c, or 1.46%, to $20.78.
