I've held Cisco Systems (CSCO) - Get Report for more than a year. Should I continue to hang on to it?-- Jean from Kentucky

James J. Cramer:

Even though Cisco's performance over the past year has been dismal, I maintain that the tech sector can move higher over the coming quarters. The company's router business has been improving, and has made up ground in competing with upstart, niche players like

F5 Networks

(FFIV) - Get Report

. With that in mind, I believe that Cisco can see the low $20s by the end of the year.

I bought Komag (KOMG) recently. After quickly moving higher, the stock has pulled back the past few sessions. I'm not panicking, but what are your thoughts?-- Jon from New York

James J. Cramer:

I have to say that I prefer

Seagate Technology

(STX) - Get Report

in the disk drive/storage space. Seagate has more exposure to supplying memory for digital consumer electronics like MP3 players and digital cameras. The upcoming tech boom will be driven by demand for certain products, and I believe that Seagate is the best positioned to take advantage of this.
