1) Why did you buy it in the first place?

2) Are the reasons you bought it still true?

3) When you say that you are not sure that it is going to recover anytime soon, is this based on some analysis, or is it "just a feeling"?

Any loss you take on CSCO could be used to offset capital gains elsewhere in your portfolio, if it is time to rebalance by selling some of your winners.
