PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Ciena (Nasdaq: CIEN),
Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), Citrix Systems (Nasdaq: CTXS), Altera (Nasdaq:
ALTR), and Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX).

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been
extremely accurate. He called the peak in March 2012 and warned readers of
the subsequent correction two days before it started. Following this, once
the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally through the Q2
earnings season. As it turned out, this was one of the strongest rallies the
market has seen in a very long time.

However, following the close on September 14, 2012, McWilliams published an
updated Strategy Review and, in that, predicted again that the markets were
due for another drop ahead of the November election. This time he nailed the
year-to-date high to the day. Technology investors and analysts will want to
be sure to read what McWilliams predicts will happen in 2013 in his upcoming
year-end State of Tech report.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has
earned a reputation for his skill in communicating complex technology trends
to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won
over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry
and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners
and losers as technology trends change. To this point, no one has been more
accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple.

In his latest reports, McWilliams offers critical insight into Apple's recent
weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers. Nearly a
decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned
to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted),
and since then McWilliams has become one of the most trusted voices covering
Apple and the consumer ecosystem business model it has pioneered. McWilliams'
new, must-read report on Apple is available for free to trial Next Inning
subscribers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Ciena: Are analysts and investors making a mistake when they view Ciena as
a proxy to cover the fiber optics sector? What does McWilliams say is the
correct way to classify Ciena? Is Ciena poised to benefit from a rebound in
demand from the wireline telecom sector? What other companies are well
positioned to benefit from this trend? What other trend might uniquely
benefit Ciena? After alerting Next Inning readers to sell Ciena in April 2011
at its then current price of $27.50, which represented a 210%+ profit from the
suggested buy price, McWilliams suggested buying Ciena shares in October 2011
at their then current price of $11.57. With Ciena now trading solidly in the
mid-teens does McWilliams think it's time to take profits again or let the
investment ride through earnings season? During the last decade, McWilliams
has called the peaks and valleys for Ciena with uncanny accuracy. Trial
subscribers will have full access to McWilliams 1,700+ word Ciena earnings
preview.

-- Cisco and Citrix: Should investors view rumors of a possible acquisition of
Citrix by Cisco as credible? What does McWilliams think is behind these
rumors? What stock should investors interested in boosting exposure to the
virtualization trend pair with Citrix?

-- Altera and Xilinx: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted
Xilinx would outperform Altera. Because Altera had been the big winner during
the last two years, this was a bold forecast that went against the grain of
Wall Street forecasts. So far, however, McWilliams is right. Year to date,
the price of Xilinx is up 12.1% while the price of Altera is down 12.5%. Does
McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive investment than its
rival Altera? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are important
to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams see these trends
shaping up for 2013?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 223%
since its inception versus 56% for the S&P 500.
