NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- After starting off the year trading at $19.36 per share, Cisco's (CSCO - Get Report) has soared by as much as 37%. It's taken almost two years, but the Street finally seems warm to the idea that the networking giant can still be a growth story, if not a dominant cash-flow generating machine.In that regard, I don't believe Cisco's management has gotten the credit it deserves, particularly CEO John Chambers, who has gotten more than his share of criticism. The company has ignored all of the noise, focusing solely on execution. You will be hard pressed to find a company in any sector that is executing better than Cisco, which will be going for its tenth consecutive earnings beat.
