Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said in a note to clients. "We think this is partly due to slowing improvements in the security portfolio. The recent departure of Sourcefire's founder, who we think has been integral to the security roadmap, gives us additional pause."Cisco bought Sourcefire in 2013 for $2.7 billion.A RBC Capital analyst says Cisco's revenue growth could stall.Cisco IT Spending Outlook"Heading into the January quarter print, we think the focus remains on the success of the switching product cycle and Cisco's ability to maintain its current gross margin profile," RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves said in his report to clients. "While the revenue growth will likely moderate to low-to-mid singles if the IT spending environment takes a step back, we think the gross margin profile will sustain."Raymond James analyst Simon Leopold maintains an out-perform rating ahead of Cisco earnings."Checks suggest demand from enterprises remained robust, with continued traction from Cisco's Catalyst 9000 more than offsetting weakness in its Middle East business and its server business," Leopold said in a note.
