Buy Cisco Systems (CSCO)

Cisco Systems today isn't the fast growing technology company that rode the Dotcom boom to revenue growth of 44% in 1999 and 56% in 2000--before the bottom fell out. And that's a good thing. The company owns more than 50% of the market for Internet routers and switches and 80% of the corporate market for routers. Cisco has used that market share as a springboard to build strong revenue streams in Internet security and storage, wireless networking and Internet-telephony and video.
