Sterne Agee maintains a 'Buy' on Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) price target of $23.00 (from $27.00).

Analyst, Shaw Wu, said, "In our supply chain checks, we are unsurprisingly picking up softer demand trends. However, this appears to be driven more by longer sales cycles as opposed to competitive displacements. In fact, we are hearing CSCO is gaining share. We maintain our Buy rating as we believe shares have some support here with 37% of its market capitalization in cash."

However, Wu is taking a conservative approach and lowering FY12 revenues from $46B to $45.8B. For FY13, EPS estimate is lowered from $1.95 to $1.90 and revenues from $47.8B to $46.8B.
