/// Cisco’s Q4 Results Beat Street Expectations, but Not by Much

August 14, 2013  |  All Things Digital

Quarterly results from networking giant Cisco Systems have just crossed the wires, and they’re good, but perhaps not good enough. Cisco reported per-share earnings of 52 cents on sales of $12.4 billion. The EPS results were better than the 51 cents and $12.41 billion that analysts had forecast, but just beat them by a whisker. Sales fell slightly short. Investors seem a little upset, as Cisco shares fell in after-hours trading by nearly three percent, to $25.65 a share.
