A Better Way to Profit From Cisco

The following video is part of a special series in which Motley Fool analyst Brendan Byrnes and "Options Whiz" Bryan Hinmon discuss how to make 2012 the year YOU master the market.

In this edition, Brendan and Bryan analyze Cisco. Sometimes investors love a company, but are hesitant to simply go long or short in the stock. Options can be a great way to lower an investor's risk, and also increase a stock's upside. In this series, part of our Options Education Month, Motley Fool Options analyst Bryan Hinmon and fellow Fool Brendan Byrnes discuss how to benefit from Cisco's future prospects while controlling its risk.

    Cisco deserves to be short.. This company is filled with ill managed managers and unethical work culture.
