Cisco to start paying a dividend before summer
NEW YORK — Cisco, the world’s largest maker of computer-networking gear, says it plans to start paying a dividend before the end of its current fiscal year, in July.
Like several other big technology companies, Cisco has a large cash balance, and analysts have speculated that it would use it for a dividend.
Cisco didn’t say how big the dividend would be.
