Blesto and all:

Cisco is certainl "less" of a growth company -- but this is representative of a larger problem I'm seeing with how the large tech bellwethers are perceived.

There's no problem if they aren't go-go growth monsters like they used to be. They are incredibly profitable, incredibly entrenched, and for the most part incredibly cheap. The "what you pay for what you get" ratio is fantastic in names like Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), IBM (NYSE: IBM), Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) and Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO).

They don't have to grow to the moon to be good investments at these prices. However, they do need to remain innovative and offensive, as opposed to bloated and lazy.

Thanks for reading,
