Inflation is a great thing for companies and most investors. They raise prices due to inflation and revenues and usually profits go up. So if inflation is 10% and a companies revenues go up 5% per cent investors are happy but the company has actually fallen behind.

@Reading is never enough Glad you like it. And that is a very interesting user name :)
Over the last 3 years, revenue is flat to negative and the same goes for their operating margin. Increasing dividends under those circumstances seems to me like management and/or the board can’t find good investment bets for the company’s future. I don’t see why the stock deserves multiple expansion.

@Tradevestor but the pie isn’t growing.

Not sure - CSCO only started rising recently and made a lot of gains quickly - would be easy to think it's overbought and likely to recede. . .

Nonetheless, a decent stock to hold for the long-run.

@mwh27 recently? It is up 40% in the last year. Far from over bought...PE of 18.36. Not receding. Going North and we'll see 70+ mid year...

@mwh27 I'd say it has been a gradual move up over the the past year at least, as indicated by those moving averages.

@Nor10 It may pullback, no stock is immune. That is where selling puts may come in handy for those who can play that game.
