The company reported revenue of $13.1 billion for the fourth quarter on a profit of 83 cents. Chuck Robbins, CEO of Cisco, noted in the earnings release that “full year product orders and backlog are both at record highs and reflect the strong demand we continue to see for our innovation and the overall value we provide to our customers as they accelerate their digital transformation.” JMP Securities Senior Research Analyst Erik Suppiger told Yahoo Finance that the results “suggested, along with comments from other companies, that at least we are past the toughest periods of supply chain constraints.”

Bath & Body Works (BBWI): The stock fell in after-hours after the retailer lowered its profit forecast for the year. Bath & Body Works announced cost-cutting measures, including the elimination of 130 positions, as the company faces “the challenging environment and inflationary pressures affecting our customers and our business”.
