    Does Cisco's results include their stuffed channels? Oh wait, only auto industry does that.

    that Chambers was on CNBC, must have been a phenomenal Q, based on their watered down 4x guidance

    CSCO management is very smart. They realize that there's now a massive class of investors looking for yield. With such a high dividend yield, they've made CSCO a dividend investor's core holding. That shareholder base is long term, and doesn't trade if a company has a weak quarter -- exactly the shareholder base an IR person would want.

     

    Maybe focus on its dividend per share and payout ratio will increase scrutiny of CSCO's options grants, because investors won't like it if some of the buybacks are only to offset options grants instead of reducing shares outstanding.
