    Cisco (CSCO) has made an offer to acquire Skype before it completes its planned IPO, TechCrunch says. If true, the deal could be a big one as Skype is gunning for a valuation of $5B. The report says Google (GOOG) also was rumored to be considering an offer for Skype, but antitrust concerns may have derailed that bid.

    In the wake of yesterday's 10% selloff, Cisco (CSCO -0.1%) shares might seem attractive, but perhaps investors should be as cautious as the company's CEO sounds. John Chambers projects long-term organic revenue growth of 12%-17%, but those projections may be tough to meet, since Cisco averaged only ~8% during 2004-09.

    Investment in equipment and software has been one of the strongest GDP components, and Cisco's (CSCO) comments suggest this investment is slowing: Some customers "saw a softening in their business in the second half of June and early July. Upon review, we saw a similar pattern... where the normal order growth rates were off over 10 points vs. our quarter's 23% average."
