Below are the top five performing stocks in the Dow Jones Industrials Index. These companies should be watched for additional outperformance to the upside.

Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) lead the charge up 1.82% today, well above the Dow's return of 0.66% thus far. Just behind are shares of Home Depot (NYSE:HD), which is up 1.78%.

Rounding out the list of outperformers are shares of Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) and Merck (NYSE:MRK), which are up 1.76% and 1.26%, respectively. Finally we have Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) up a respectable 1.25% on the day.

Cisco Systems, Inc. supplies data networking products for the Internet. The Company's Internet Protocol-based networking solutions are installed at corporations, public institutions and telecommunication companies worldwide.
