When Will Cisco Stock Recover?
What's behind Cisco shares' 52-week low, with Jim Kelleher, Argus Research

Jim Kelleher, director of research and senior analyst at Argus Research, offered his analysis.

Cisco's recent financial disappointments stemmed from "a failure to monitor its own business," Kelleher said. Company managment didn't see "the competitive losses they were facing," including a burgeoning set-top box threat from Motorola.

The "right price" for Cisco shares is "mid-20s," he believes, noting that the stock is down approximately 20 percent year-to-date, as compared with its peer group ("up mid-teens") and the Technology SPDR ("up about 6 percent.")
