John Chambers says he might retire as Cisco's (CSCO -0.7%) CEO in 2-4 years, and that there as many as 10 potential successors. Among them are operations head Robert Lloyd, Americas chief Chuck Robbins, and services chief Edzard Overbeek. Criticism of Chambers has mounted due to stalling growth and a stock that remains in a decade-long trading range in spite of huge buybacks. Some have suggested Chambers has made a point of running off would-be successors and filling Cisco's board with loyalists.

    I just sold off some CSCO but will replace those shares to take advantage of the positive reaction this news will ultimately have on CSCO's stock price.

    Well Mr. Chambers, then I might be interested in investing in Cisco in 2-4 years. Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.
