This is my second (and last) buy for June 2017

So as I said in my previous post I had the option to add an extra cash deposit in my brokerage account due to receiving my holliday allowance. Since I was looking at a tech stock already it didn’t take my long to make my second purchase of the month.


  Cisco Systems
P/E 16.03
Yield 3.68%
Payout Ratio 54.31%
Trackrecord Dividend since 2011 (increasing in double digits)
Valuation 8.38% off 52-wk high

For the (very) few of you who haven’t heard from this tech giant: “Cisco Systems, Inc. designs and sells a range of products, provides services and delivers integrated solutions to develop and connect networks around the world.”

I can pretty much garantuee that the only reason you are able to read this post is because of equipment from Cisco. It could be directly via switch/router on your own location or via the internet backbone(s) based on Cisco-technology.

Cisco has started paying dividends since 2011 and has increased them every year with double digits. Coupled with a solid balance sheet, low payout ratio and enough room for future growth via security, cloud and IoT. I am really excited to now own 10 shares of CSCO. I bought them on a small dip @ $31,45. With a quarterly dividend of $0.29 this should bring me (10 x 0,29 x 2)-15% tax = $4,93 in 2017. My forward annual income should ofcourse increase with twice that amount: $9,86.

So have you bought anything in june?

Additonal question for my fellow DGI bloggers, how do you research/calculate the fair value of a stock you are analysing? I’m really having trouble find the right sources of information for a few key statistics.

  1. Great buy, Cisco is one of my favorite DGI stocks and also one of my biggest positions.

    Regarding your question – how do you research/calculate the fair value of a stock you are analysing – I rely on my broker (Fidelity) which provides great stats and research reports, including fair value and estimates.


  2. I love CSCO and I´m going to add more and more to this stock in the future. Such a great DGI stock.
    Regarding your question:

    Using the Graham Valuation Formula on say CAH, with a 5 year earnings growth of 9.69% and current EPS of 4.19, and AAA rated Corporate bond yield of 4.06% fair value is 127 USD. Even if earnings growth falls to 6% fair value is 93 USD.

  3. Great buy. CSCO seems to be getting very popular in the DGI community lately. Have a special place in my heart for them as they were my first dividend stock I purchased. Been performing pretty well.


    1. Hi Troy, thanks for the comment! I thought based on your post yesterday “Based on our model’s current projections, this bull market has at least 1-2 years left (and more likely 2-3 years)” that it would still take a while for the correction to happen. Or are you referring just to Cisco’s stock?


  4. CSCO can provide stable dividend now. It’s moved on from the decreasing share price from $60 to $5. Some people I know lost a bunch of money back in the days.

    This is a great entry point for CSCO. I also like MSFT as they’re bulking up from software making to hardwares.


  5. I think you made a great purchase. I’m looking to add 5 more stocks to my portfolio and CISCO is on the short list of stocks. I like the price per share and the dividend yield, among other things.
