PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT),
Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), KLA-Tencor (Nasdaq:
KLAC) and QLogic (Nasdaq: QLGC).
After a series of reports that nailed the market's high and low points in
2012, Editor Paul McWilliams has published his outlook for 2013. His new State
of Tech report covers 72 technology stocks and outlines which stocks investors
will want to own and which they should avoid. The report also dives deep into
a number of exciting, emerging tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street
This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology
in 2013. Trial subscribers will receive the 126-page report, which includes 35
detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. Trial subscribers
will also receive McWilliams' earnings previews, offering in-depth coverage
ahead of key earnings reports for dozens of tech stocks.
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.
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). However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised
Next Inning readers to sell. What led McWilliams to predict Apple's decline
late in 2012 and what does he now predict for the stock in 2013? In recent
reports, McWilliams also offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness
and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Microsoft: What is McWilliams' view of Microsoft's new Windows 8 operating
system? Have pundits been too quick to criticize Windows 8? Might the Windows
8 roll-out provide a catalyst that will allow Microsoft shares to break out to
the upside? What is the one thing that Microsoft could do with its new
Windows strategy that would reestablish it with both consumers and enterprise
-- Juniper Networks: After suggesting an exit from Juniper in early 2011,
McWilliams suggested buying the stock again last summer at its then current
price of $16.31. Now that Juniper has announced the major restructuring that
McWilliams had predicted would occur, is the stock poised for a strong
turnaround? Can Juniper keep up with Cisco in key markets? What does
McWilliams think about Juniper's new focus on Software Defined Networking
(SDN)? What is McWilliams' fair value range for Juniper and how much upside
does it represent?
-- Flextronics: What caused McWilliams to adjust his rating on Flextronics
last year? Why did Flextronics decide to back away from operating an ODM model
in the PC sector? Has McWilliams taken a more bullish or bearish view of
Flextronics since it made that decision? What trends does McWilliams see that
should favor the EMS sector going forward? Could Flextronics shares move above
$10 this year?
-- KLA-Tencor: What differentiates KLA-Tencor from other major players in the
sector like Applied Materials and Lam Research? Are there signs indicating
demand for KLA-Tencor products and services will increase this year? Does
McWilliams see this as a secular change that will last or just as a short term
upside? What are the drivers behind this change in the demand environment?
Which of these three stocks does McWilliams recommend for investors looking to
cover the semi equipment sector?
-- QLogic: Now that QLogic has sold its InfiniBand product line to Intel, does
McWilliams think the stock is a better investment than it was before the sale,
or is it a stock investors should avoid? What trends in high speed adapters
does McWilliams will impact QLogic going forward? Is the disappointing report
from Mellanox an indication that we should expect a similar report from
QLogic? Does McWilliams think QLogic's recently announced PCIe strategy will
prove to be a winner? What is changing in data center design that may prove
to be very beneficial for QLogic? What is the key wildcard that QLogic
investors need to be aware of?
