Best Analyst Reports for Cisco, Verizon, and BlackRock

Zacks Research Daily features the best research results from our team of analysts.

Actions of Cisco outperformed Zacks’ IT networking industry over the past year (+ 42.7% vs. + 40.4%), this historic technology leader benefiting from the strength of its product portfolio, customer segments and the growth momentum in product orders.

Strength in the Webscale business and strong adoption of switching solutions, particularly the Catalyst 9000 and Meraki offerings, are other key growth drivers. The acquisition of Acacia Communications also bodes well for the long term. However, component shortages and persistent supply chain issues are expected to persist through the second half of fiscal 2022. This could reduce revenues as well as expand margins.

Verizon stocks have lost -6.2% in the year-to-date period against Zacks Wireless National’s -7.4% industry loss, however, things appear to be improving for the business. Zacks analyst believes Verizon remains well positioned to benefit from a disciplined network strategy and a customer-centric business model.

Verizon expects this momentum to continue through diligent execution of operational plans as well as dedicated 5G efforts. The planned sale of Verizon Media reaffirms its focus on its core wireless business. Significant spending on promotions, lucrative discounts to attract customers, and a fiercely competitive US wireless market are some of the major headwinds.

Actions of Black rock have gained + 5% in the last six months against a loss of -5% in the industry of Zacks Investment Management. The Zacks analyst believes that BlackRock is well positioned to capitalize on opportunistic acquisitions and regularly improve the balance of assets under management.

BLK’s initiatives to restructure the equity industry as well as strategic acquisitions are expected to continue to drive revenue growth and, as a result, expand its global reach and market share. The high administrative costs as well as the heavy dependence on foreign revenues, however, remain a concern for BlackRock.
