Analyst-beating quarterly results from Cisco Systems gave US stocks a solid opening boost Wednesday, following two listless sessions.

Five minutes into trade, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 34.81 points (0.27 percent) at 12,790.99.

The broad-market S&P 500 added 4.21 (0.31 percent) at 1,378.74, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite gained 14.60 (0.51 percent) at 2,898.49.

Dow component Cisco jumped 7.8 percent to $18.16 after its 48 cents earnings per share for its fiscal first quarter beat analyst expectations by two cents.
