Yes, though the top portion (the growing tip end) will usually have a nicer appearance. Stick the cut end of the stem in the substrate and the stem will continue to grow. This method is how we normally trim or prune stem plants, to prevent them reaching the surface and growing out or along the surface, since when this occurs the lower leaves (depending upon the species) may yellow and die off .

As for the older lower part of the stem when the growing tip is cut off, it may remain "as is" or with some plants it will sprout 2 new shoots. I have had this occur with Wisteria; I can't remember about cabomba.
