Cisco Afterhours Carnage

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update: $19.90 now

One of these years Cisco will actually trade up after earnings. We promise. Just not yet... not yet. In the meantime, enjoy the latest carnage. But never forget: the gross margin collapse, the plunge in the consumer business, and that whole "transition" language - that's all very much company-specific. There is no way, repeat no way, that Cisco weakness can ever be systemic. And forget that Cisco was the first company to go pop during most previous bubbles. That also does not fit the script.

When a large percentage of "shareholders" are only day trading, speculating, and own a teensy bit in their "I'm a dumbf*ck lamb ETF fund" Just what in the hell did you think would happen??? They would roll out the red carpet and have a name tag waiting for you at the next shareholders meeting?? You damned idiots!!!

Insider selling has been crazy for all companies. Stock is a lot like fiat money. It comes out of nowhere, some guys in a room decided to print some, and there are some vague justifications to "value" even though underlying production is nowhere near the actual value of the outstanding stock. Aaaaand, if you get your stock options cheap (a la 0% loans to TBTFs) why wouldn't you dump as much of that as you can justify? Er, I mean provide long term value to any number of brain-dead pension funds... Of course, you ARE trading it for Uncle Bens FiatBux, but those still get you a nice villa in Zermatt and your choice of Lithuanian prostitutes, etc.

Inflation and local politics are the 2 big dogs in India. Plus the RBI has been ahead of the curve hiking interest rates 3 times in recent months. Unlike here in the US, food and energy prices matter a lot in India. The Sensex though is filled with foreign money and its been on a tear since 1982 (thats when the 401k programs started in the USA) and even more so after 1990.

"The quarter played out as we expected. Our strategy of tightly integrating our multiple products through an architectural approach is working, and we are delivering innovation in each major product family," said John Chambers, chairman and chief executive officer. "As a company, we are going through a period of transition as we move aggressively in the market with our architectural strategy. We have managed these market transitions many times, positioning Cisco and our customers for success. Simply put, we are owning our evolution and the next generation of industry leadership."

This plays a part as to the reasons why.

Biflation (sometimes mixflation) is a state of the economy where the processes of inflation and deflation occur simultaneously.[1] The term was first introduced by Dr. F. Osborne Brown, a Senior Financial Analyst for the Phoenix Investment Group.[2] During Biflation, there's a rise in the price of commodity/earnings-based assets (inflation) and a simultaneous fall in the price of debt-based assets (deflation).[3]

The price of all assets are based on the demand for them versus the volume of money in circulation to buy them.

With biflation on the one hand, the economy is fueled by an over-abundance of money injected into the economy by central banks. Since most essential commodity-based assets (food, energy, clothing) remain in high demand, the price for them rises due to the increased volume of money chasing them. The increasing costs to purchase these essential assets is the price-inflationary arm of Biflation.[4]

With biflation on the other hand, the economy is tempered by increasing unemployment and decreasing purchasing power. As a result, a greater amount of money is directed toward buying essential items and directed away from buying non-essential items. Debt-based assets (mega-houses, high-end automobiles and stocks) become less essential and increasingly fall into lower demand. As a result, the prices for them fall due to the decreased volume of money chasing them. The decreasing costs to purchase these non-essential assets is the price-deflationary arm of biflation

We need huge productivity numbers to avoid margin compression and moderate the effects of commodity inflation but they are more vague and mysterious than m3 or bank asset ratio calculations. Watch productivity. It should rise initially as we get out of this growth recession, but if core rises and ebitda doesnt improve then all of us playing at the liquidity fountain deserve our fate as tyler said.

dont agree with you as:

1) until the market: there is no market anymore, it's all manipulated by Treasury/Fed.

2) Treasury/Fed will buy ES like crazy as soon as the (so-called) market could tank (means that DJI could be in the red by a few points).

Bottom line: Basically your comments would be fully right in a free market but that's not the case since end of 2008 !

Remember that the world just ran out of available IP v4 addresses (in bulk) in the least week and that fairly soon there will be a need for tons of IP v6 systems. We are quite fine in the short term however but this will only become more and more of a problem as time goes on. In the short term there should be plenty of IP v4 addresses to recycle around. If I wanted to make a killing I would drive Cisco stock down and then create some sort of government mandate for IP v6 Internet addresses which would be a huge boon for Cisco.

In short if Cisco stock drops like some panties then I will be going super long and hard

This is a good way to get raped.  IPv6 address support is already in IOS builds for Cisco Routers.  It's a code upgrade; NOT a hardware upgrade.

As far as I know they are not obligated to provide free value especially when it means their ass. Additionally they make a ton of home and small office equipment.

from Wikipedia

Cisco IOS releases meant for use on Catalyst switches are available as "standard" versions (providing only basic IP routing), "enhanced" versions, which provide full IPv4 routing support, and "advanced IP services" versions, which provide the enhanced features as well as IPv6 support.

This is going to make many of those several year old routers that would be otherwise perfectly fine not be good enough anymore in a year or two from now.

They just installed a Cisco VOIP system where I work.

I wish the system worked.  It's pretty iffy, at best.

Why did the replace the POTS when they worked fine?

CSCO treats their stock like The Ben Bernank treats the U.S. Dollar: print 'em baby!

The only way to make money in CSCO is to work for the company and rise to a point where you can exercise and sell free warrants same day, (or sell a hail mary start up to them for the same deal).

Basically like most other public companies, only on a greater scale.

Gee, I wonder why insiders hardly ever actually buy the stock of a company they work for when it is free and abundant as funny money...

All the "Value Investors" buying CSCO based on PEs or other souch nonsense. Please - this company took the "Tech Scamming Accounting Strategy" to the next level. If you fully understand how they account for the serial acquisitions, how they account for revenues, and how they account for the copious stock-options granted to employees - Then you will get a clue. 'Value Investors" are just the dumbest schucks around - i swear!!
