Cisco saw sales hit by Covid lockdowns in China as well as Russia’s war in Ukraine. The company, after the closing bell Wednesday, did report better-than-expected earnings. Despite the big revenue miss and lower volumes, Cisco’s pricing and spending strategies translated into stronger-than-anticipated margins.
