Cisco (CSCO) is still down significantly from both its dot-com heights and also down from its 2007 peak, but the stock has had a good run in the last 12 months to tack on about 61% to its share price.

And while there is a lot of uncertainty in the enterprise tech space, one thing that is not up for debate is the stability of Cisco. The company has a ton of cash and robust cash flow to keep things moving in the right direction longer term.

A 2.6% dividend and payouts that have tripled since they debuted in 2011 is a nice sweetener, too.
