How Is The Balance Sheet Looking At Cisco Systems?
Good cursory balance sheet analysis and definitely points to a strong position. I concur with the risk related to goodwill - any write downs on this account would flow as a non-cash charge, but could potentially create earnings issues.
What I think would be an interesting analysis is a ROIC (Return on Invested Capital) view over time. CSCO is clearly pumping out a lot of cash, and they have a ton of cash on the B/S, but the question remains - do they have any decent opportunities to use this cash? Similar to AAPL, having a huge cash pile can lower the ROIC if not returned to shareholders.
