PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for JDS Uniphase (Nasdaq:
JDSU), Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), Cree (Nasdaq: CREE), Cisco Systems (Nasdaq:

Over the past decade, well over a thousand Wall Street analysts, money
managers and institutional investors have joined thousands of savvy private
investors in gaining key tech industry insights and intelligence from industry
veteran and celebrated investor Paul McWilliams in his role as editor of Next
Inning Technology Research.

"I value your research more than any others I read," said one hedge fund
manager of Next Inning, recently. And a long-time tech industry analyst for a
Wall Street research firm said, "I believe your research and calls are the
best I have ever seen in my career." With McWilliams' impressive track record
and unparalleled industry access, NI Technology Research has become an
essential tool for analysts and investors looking to navigate today's complex
technology landscape.

McWilliams' new installment of his acclaimed State of Tech series of reports

tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street curve. Trial subscribers will

analysts focusing on technology in 2013.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- JDS Uniphase: Last fall McWilliams suggested that Next Inning readers
consider buying JDS Uniphase when it was trading in the $10s. What
differentiates JDS Uniphase from other companies in the fiber optics sector
and why might this unique factor in the JDS Uniphase equation drive an upside
relative to other companies in the sector? What factors support a positive
view of the fiber optics sector right now? What strategies does McWilliams see
as valid ways for investors to cover the fiber optics sector?

-- Finisar: Last fall when the price of Finisar was stuck in the low teens,
McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was time to buy the stock. While
some Wall Street analysts claimed advances in "silicon-photonics" technology
would disrupt Finisar's business model, McWilliams wrote without caveat that
those fears were way over-blown, and predicted Finisar would not only top the
estimates of covering analysts during its fiscal 2014 (ends April 2014), but
also substantially increase its profit margins. With Finisar's latest
announcement of raised guidance, we now have proof that McWilliams was right
when he mocked the Wall Street analysts who predicted Finisar would fail and
held staunchly to their single-digit price targets. As McWilliams likes to
say, the Finisar story was evidently too simple for Wall Street to
understand. With Finisar now trading in the low-$20s, does McWilliams think
it's time to take some profits, or is the party just getting started? What
are the real drivers behind the Finisar story that Wall Street ignored last
year, and what are the new drivers McWilliams sees coming into play during the
next twelve months?

-- Cree: When Cree was trudging through the low to mid-$20s during the first
three quarters of 2012, McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to build a
position in the stock. As McWilliams carefully outlined then, Cree was not
only positioned to significantly increase revenue, but also its profit
margins, and with that deliver well above consensus earnings. What one
strategy has Cree adopted during the last six months that McWilliams believes
will result in it being not only a big winner in the LED lighting market, but
also positions Cree to maintain impressive profit margins? Why does
McWilliams think the vertical integration strategy being executed by Cree
makes sense? With Cree now trading near $75, does McWilliams think the
investment has played out or is there reason to continue holding? What price
range does McWilliams think can be supported with near-term fundamentals and
where does he think Cree could trade under ideal circumstances?

-- 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
nearly 75% from its 2012 low, does McWilliams believe the stock is still
trading at an attractive price? Is Cisco poised for above-trend growth going
forward?What specifically does McWilliams see changing for Cisco in the near
term and how does he think those changes will impact the price of Cisco's
stock?

-- Applied Materials: McWilliams suggested throughout 2012 that Next Inning
readers accumulate shares on dips into the $10s. With Wall Street now
embracing McWilliams' positive view of Applied Materials, does McWilliams
think it's now time to take profits or is there considerably more upside
potential for the stock? What strategies does McWilliams suggest for
investors interested in the semiconductor manufacturing and test equipment
sector?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 307%
since its inception versus 86% for the S&P 500.
