It hurts when the technology you built your business on starts to drag you down. And that’s just what’s happening at Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), which reported a 2.6% drop in quarterly revenue last week. The drop came from lessening demand for Cisco’s switches, its chief legacy product.

Early this year, Michael called Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. a “Tech Turkey” – putting it on a list of stocks to avoid in 2016. Michael’s not one too brag (too much), so we’ll do it for him.
Fast-forward till now – after Samsung’s fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 smartphone disaster – and he looks pretty prescient. Michael appeared on CNBC World earlier this week to discuss Samsung’s public-relations mess – and what it means for that company’s finances and the rest of South Korea’s tech leaders. Take a look….
