NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Cisco ( CSCO - Get Report) beat fiscal first-quarter earnings estimates after the bell on Wednesday, reporting EPS of 42 cents a share from 36 cents a share last year, above analysts' estimates of 40 cents.

First-quarter revenue soared 19% from last year to $10.75 billion, slightly edging analysts' expectations of $10.74 billion.

Still, Cisco shares dropped more than 4% in after-hours trading, mirroring what happened last quarter, when on top of a good beat, CEO John Chambers gave a less-than-enthusiastic take on tech spending, noting a decrease in customer orders in late June and early July. As a result, Cisco's stock dipped 0.82% over the past three months.
