PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), Altera (Nasdaq: ALTR), and DragonWave (Nasdaq: DRWI).
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 curve.
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:
-- Apple: Shares of Apple plunged by nearly 4% amid reports that iPhone 5 orders have been slashed. Does McWilliams believe that investors should be concerned about this news or are these headlines missing the real story at Apple? Earlier this year when Apple made its first run to the mid-$600s, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was time to take profits and reiterated that view in the fall as Apple moved above $700. In his new State of Tech report, McWilliams reveals two valuable lessons investors should have learned from watching Apple in 2012 and three reasons why the extremely high Apple price targets shared by some analysts were unlikely to be met. Most importantly, McWilliams' new report outlines his outlook for Apple in 2013, including whether the stock is poised to make another run to $700. This report is a "must read" for all Apple investors and analysts.
-- Finisar: Why did the price of Finisar (FNSR) drop so dramatically last week? What does McWilliams say are the five "indisputable facts" investors should consider before buying shares of Finisar? After Finisar reported earnings in December that were in near perfect alignment with McWilliams' expectations, what is he projecting for 2013?
-- Altera: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would outperform Altera. Because Altera had been the big winner during the last two years, this was a bold forecast that went against the grain of Wall Street forecasts. However, McWilliams was right – Xilinx was the winner hands down in all categories. Wall Street is now projecting Xilinx to grow earnings much faster than Altera again in 2013. Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive investment than its rival Altera? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are important to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams see these trends shaping up for 2013?
-- DragonWave: What is McWilliams' updated outlook on DragonWave following the company's earnings report last week? Does McWilliams expect that DragonWave will be able to reach its operating profit margin target this year? Does McWilliams expect more downside for DragonWave shares, or is he expecting them to rebound quickly from current levels?
