PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Nokia (NYSE: NOK),
Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), EZchip Semiconductor (Nasdaq: EZCH), Arris Group
(Nasdaq: ARRS), and Harmonic (Nasdaq: HLIT).

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.

As the markets began to peak in mid-September, McWilliams warned again that
prices were poised to fall and would likely continue moving lower through
early November. However, following this, McWilliams boldly called the market
bottom on November 16^th. Today McWilliams updated his near to mid-term
outlook and advised readers they need to watch what he calls "The Apple
Factor." McWilliams' recent reports reveal The Apple Factor and explain why
all tech investors need to watch it carefully.

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:

-- Microsoft and Nokia: Might the Windows 8 roll-out provide a catalyst that
will allow Microsoft shares to break out to the upside? Might investors
interested in Microsoft look instead to Nokia as a potential high-beta play on
the Microsoft's possible success? Why does McWilliams view Nokia's fortunes
as tightly tied to Microsoft at this juncture?

-- EZchip: Is the market right to pay attention to reports of growth concerns
at EZchip, or are these reports looking at EZchip the wrong way? Is EZchip
well positioned to ramp up growth and avoid the competitive concerns cited in
recent reports? Why does McWilliams call the most recent report from Seeking
Alpha a "straw-man" argument that is easily dismantled?

-- Arris and Harmonic: What does the acquisition of Google's Motorola set-top
box and video infrastructure business add to the Arris equation? Why might the
acquisition actually be good news for Arris rival Harmonic in the near- to
mid-term? Does McWilliams think it could also be a positive for Arris?
