If 2013 has been a great year for stocks in general, it's been a phenomenal year for Cisco Systems ( CSCO). Shares of the $130 billion IP networking giant have rallied 24% year-to-date, beating the broad market's impressive ascent by 10%.
Cisco is the world's biggest manufacturer of data networking equipment and software, a niche that's benefitted in a big way from the rising tide of data demands in consumer products. Now Cisco looks well positioned for the second half of 2013.
