Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Micron: In his Q4 2012 State of Tech report, McWilliams wrote that Micron
was a buy at its then current price of $6.34 and set an exit target in the
high $9s. Ahead of Micron's recent earnings report, McWilliams reiterated his
opinion and wrote the easy money has been made and to look for an exit in the
high $9s to low $10s. The price of Micron peaked at $10.27 and traded above
$10 for five consecutive days. Investors who followed McWilliams advice were
rewarded with a gain of roughly 60% inside three months. With the price now
back in the low $9s, is it time to buy Micron again? What price objective
does McWilliams see as realistic for Micron in the second half of 2013 and
what does he think will drive it?
-- Cisco: McWilliams was quick to advise Next Inning readers that Wall Street
was wrong when it pushed Cisco's price under $15 in July 2012 and wrote that
it should be viewed as a buying opportunity. With the price of Cisco now up
over 40% from its 2012 low, does McWilliams believe the stock is still trading
at an attractive price? Is Cisco poised for above-trend growth in 2013? What
specifically does McWilliams see changing for Cisco in 2013 and how does he
think those changes will impact the price of Cisco's stock?
-- EMC and VMware: Does McWilliams think EMC would be better off instituting a
dividend policy rather than using its free cash flow to continually buy shares
of VMware? Why does McWilliams say it's important for investors to view EMC's
value from both a traditional valuation perspective as well as a deconstructed
valuation perspective? What does McWilliams say is the right way to
deconstruct EMC's valuation model and what price target does it suggest for
EMC? What does McWilliams think about the new EMC VMWare joint venture,
Pivotal Initiative? At their current prices, does McWilliams think investors
should buy EMC or VMWare? What does McWilliams think about EMC competitor,
-- Oracle: When Oracle announced it would hire Mark Hurd, McWilliams wrote
without caveat that investors should buy stock at the then current price of
$24. He reiterated that call recently when the price of Oracle dipped into
the low $30s. Now that the price of Oracle has recovered some from its recent
lows, does McWilliams think there is still enough upside potential for
investors to buy here? What specific trends does McWilliams see developing
that he thinks will favor Oracle? Why does McWilliams think Oracle is really
interested in acquiring Acme Packet? Where can Oracle leverage Acme's unique
positioning in session control within its core business model? Is Oracle well
positioned to be a big winner as the "Big Data" paradigm takes hold?
