Cisco’s stock price movement

Cisco Systems (CSCO) stock soared 6.7% on May 16 after the company posted upbeat results for the third quarter of fiscal 2019, which ended on April 27, on May 15. The tech giant also rose as much as 3% in after-hours trading on May 15. Cisco stock has gained 30.9% YTD (year-to-date) as of May 16, higher than the S&P 500’s gain of nearly 14.7%.

However, the stock has fallen 0.04% in May. The stock prices of peers Juniper (JNPR) and Ericsson (ERIC) have also decreased 6.88% and 5.76%, respectively, on a YTD basis, probably due to tensions related to the US-China trade spat. GoPro (GPRO), however, has gained 22.5% in the same period.
