The following video is from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Austin Smith and Jason Moser, discuss the top business and investing stories.

Cisco Systems shares were up 7% this morning, which has had a ripple effect on several other tech stocks in the networks sector and inspired a micro-rally of optimism in the growth of the tech sector as a whole, despite greater socioeconomic market woes. In this segment, the guys talk about why this hasn't restored their faith in Cisco, which they feel always gains in the long run but is always peppered with a series of short-term disappointments.
