The bear market is making retail and professional investors nervous, but the market will not be down forever. For those who have lived through the dot-com crash and sub-prime mortgage crisis, we know bear markets can last many months, but stock markets eventually reverse course. However, the bear market creates opportunities for many to follow a dividend growth investing strategy. Similarly, investors seeking income from high-yield stocks are likely to buy too.

One stock that should be near the top of your list to buy is Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), the networking giant. The company is now yielding 3.5%+, and the dividend continues to grow annually.

The valuation is down 12.7X. The combination of the yield and undervaluation make it time to buy Cisco.

In addition, total subscription revenue declined and was a lower percentage of total revenue, suggesting customers were not renewing subscriptions and migrating to competitors…
