Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) Dividend Stock Analysis

Whoa!  Shaking off the cobwebs on  my full-on dividend stock analysis skills here.  It’s been quite some time since I’ve independently wrote an article on one dividend stock out there.  Given that my busy season has wound down, I though tit would be a great time to shake the rust and really dive into a company that I not only own, but is a highly visible company in the market place.  With the tides in the market thus far this year, the increase of rates, the election, etc.. the stock market has never been so unpredictable.  With that, we need to have a sense of security to the cash we have saved in order to deploy the appropriate capital to a company.  In terms of security – here is dividend stock that is of high quality as it relates to network and data security… Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO).

Stocks to Look Forward to in 2017

Now that 2016 is coming to an end, I am very excited to ring in the New Year, that’s for sure.  Putting back up the Christmas Tree, cleaning out any items that are needing to be thrown away and creating more simpleness in my house had me thinking about the big stocks I’m looking forward to in 2017.  There are many reasons why I am trying to look at things more from a “bigger picture” and refining/tightening/sharpening a focused strategy in 2017, as it relates to investing.  The S&P 500 is up over 10% through Christmas and due diligence is going to be that much more “fun”.
