On CAPS, 95% of the 10,984 members who have rated Cisco believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.   

One of those Fools, mpdelbuono, highlighted yesterday's pullback as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

Job cuts are unfortunate, but occasionally necessary to strengthen the company. They do not necessarily mean that the company is performing poorly, only that they're trying to manage costs. This was a good move for CSCO, and the company most certainly did not lose 10% of its value by cutting costs. They continue to be a market leader, and this is a good price to get in at.
