STEC and Towerstream

PRINCETON, N.J., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Next Inning Technology
Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused
on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Jabil Circuit (NYSE:
JBL), Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU), Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL), SanDisk (Nasdaq:
SNDK), STEC (Nasdaq: STEC) and Towerstream (Nasdaq: TWER).
In his quarterly reviews last week, Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams
suggested selling shares of STEC and reiterated his buy call for SanDisk.
Following its disappointing quarterly report and guidance, the price of STEC
dropped more than 10% to a low of $4.55 where McWilliams suggested Next Inning
readers should buy for a swing trade. SanDisk, on the other hand, moved up
pushing the total gain since the buy call at the end of 2012 to 27%. This
week he provides guidance as to whether STEC swing traders should take profits
or let the investment ride a while longer.
Other stocks McWilliams suggested buying ahead of quarterly earnings reports
include Cree (CREE) (up 55% year to date), Marvell Technology Group (MVRL) (up
47% year to date), Micron (up 48% year to date), PMC Sierra (PMCS) (up 29%
year to date) and SanDisk (up 27% year to date). Stocks he suggested
avoiding/selling include Fusion-io (FIO) (down 24% year to date) and Netlist
(NLST) (down 11% year to date).

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- The price of Jabil has moved up 10% since McWilliams suggested buying the
stock last December, but has underperformed his favored stock in the sector,
Flextronics. Why does McWilliams think Jabil has underperformed Flextronics
and broader stock market averages so far this year? Why has Jabil's Free Cash
Flow (FCF) recently fallen short of its reported earnings? What does
McWilliams think will change with Jabil this year and what does he view as a
reasonable price target for the stock?
-- In total, McWilliams trade calls for Micron have yielded a profit of 125%
during the last year. With the stock now up 48% from his last buy call, does
McWilliams think it is time for Micron investors to take profits or hedge
using a covered call strategy? What lower beta stock that has much stronger
fundamentals than Micron is likely to move in sympathy with Micron's report
this week? What three wildcards does McWilliams see in the Micron deck, and
if they fall in the right order, how much upside could they deliver for Micron
shareholders later this year?
-- When Oracle announced it would hire Mark Hurd McWilliams wrote without
caveat investors should buy stock at the then current price of $24. He
reiterated that call several times when the price of Oracle dipped into the
low $30s with the most recent being last December. With Oracle now trading
close to the high side of its range, does McWilliams think it's a good time to
take some profits or is there reason to view Oracle as a strategic long-term
holding? Why does McWilliams think Oracle is uniquely positioned to leverage
trends in Big Data? What does Oracle have that no other company can
duplicate? What does McWilliams view as a "full-value" price for Oracle?
-- In spite of the fact Towerstream CEO Jeff Thompson stated clearly during
the company's November conference call it would not need to raise more money
with a secondary offering, McWilliams warned readers it was in the cards and
would lead to a dip in Towerstream's stock price. Sure enough, Towerstream
floated yet another offering only two months later. As a result, Towerstream
trades 15% below where it closed last year. With that now in the rearview
mirror, investors need to focus on Towerstream's WiFi offload and small-cell
co-location (Co-Lo) strategies now. Why does McWilliams think Towerstream is
uniquely positioned to leverage these emerging trends? What does McWilliams
think Towerstream can offer that even much larger companies and even national
wireless carriers can't easily duplicate?
