CSCO - Let's Make Money on Their Buyout Candidates
An SI Board Since November 1998
Posts SubjectMarks Bans
19 1 0
Emcee:  Don Pueblo Type:  Unmoderated
Chambers said last week he was looking to buy 10-12 companies within the next year and a half with CSCO's 5 billion in cash. I'm not smart enough to guess who the candidates might be. LHSPF? ASND? (kidding)

I am smart enough to ask people who know more that I do.

If memory serves, he mentioned voice recognition and telephony.

Who do you think they will buy, and why? Let's ride the buyout train. (Cisco employees, especially engineeers, can PM me with their picks; thanks in advance.)
