Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) is expected to post modest gains in sales and earnings when its first fiscal quarter results are released on Tuesday afternoon, even though a negative mood has been increasing around the firm during the past few weeks. Around the end of last month, a number of peer high-tech firms reported downbeat forecasts for the year-end period, blaming a stalling economy which might erode demand from consumers and corporate customers alike. Moreover, shares have fallen by approximately 11 percent since early in October, but closed fractionally up to $16.86 Monday, which represents a point a bit below the level since Cisco’s last report on August 15th, an event that ignited trading which pushed the shares up by more than 10 percent in the next week.
