1 Dow Stock Set to Surge?

After looking at each stock on the Dow Jones Industrial (INDEX: ^DJI  ) average and comparing their current share price to the average analyst price target for the next twelve months Cisco  (Nasdaq: CSCO  ) has a lot of upside potential. Our own Caps community gives the stock a five star rating, and as one of only four Dow stocks trading with a forward price/earnings ratio of less than 10 there are worse places to put your money. 

But the company still has many overhangs including slow tech spending and an enormous cash balance overseas which could be subject to repatriation taxes if brought home. The company's recent decision to raise their dividend by 75% could indicate a lack of profitable options for cash deployment.

While Cisco could have a bright future, the options are a lot better with The 3 Dow Stocks Dividend Investors Need. They're 3 winning compnies with pa proven history of rewarding shareholders.  The report is absolutely free, so just click here and get your copy today.
