    If restructurings are usually too little, too late, why should the latest plan from Cisco Systems (CSCO) be any different at all? The exception, Herb Greenberg notes, may be Oracle (ORCL) - but most big revamps end up lagging the market.

    Cisco Systems (CSCO -1.8%) slips after Bank of America cuts its price target on shares, but some analysts say it's still a good long-term buy. Crestwood's John Morris is "impressed" with Cisco's $8B in free cash flow and the ability to remodel its business. "The company’s discounting very little future growth," Morris says, finding this a good entry point to start buying the stock.

    "We still believe Wall Street consensus has not grasped the enormity of what Apple is delivering on a global basis," Wedgewood's David Rolfe gushes over AAPL's quarter. "This isn’t Cisco (CSCO) circa 2000, with a P/E of 100. This is John D. Rockfeller, Standard Oil kind of stuff." Rolfe sees upside for the shares even with the multiple staying the same.
