Editor Paul McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:

  • SanDisk: In July, when SanDisk was trading at $36.48, McWilliams told investors that SanDisk was deeply undervalued. With shares now 20% higher, does McWilliams expect further gains for SanDisk investors? Could SanDisk shares move above $50 in the near term? What two near-term catalysts could strongly benefit SanDisk in the next few months?
  • Microsoft: Is Microsoft now on the right track with its homogenized Windows strategy? Is Windows 8 poised to deliver the first notable challenge to Apple's tablet dominance? What new computing market will Windows 8 open for Microsoft?  Could Windows 8 find fans among corporate chief information officers who have been forced into accepting a "bring your own device" (BYOC) strategy and are now contending with fragmented mobile platforms? Does Microsoft plan to leverage its new Surface Tablet strategy?
  • Nokia: Is Nokia likely to get on the right track after its massive restructuring? What are the best options for growth for Nokia going forward? Will the situation at Nokia get worse before it gets better?  Why might the release of Microsoft's new PC operating system, Windows 8, benefit Nokia even though Nokia is not in the PC business?
  • Cypress: McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to avoid Cypress last year when the stock was trading in the $20s and again this year following its drop into the mid-teens.  However, as the stock fell to a 52-week low in late July it finally tripped McWilliams buy price.  With Cypress again trading near McWilliams' buy price, should investors consider adding shares? Could Cypress move to $15 in the near term?  What is McWilliams' exit strategy for Cypress?
  • Lam Research: Following its purchase of Novellus, is Lam Research now a more attractive investment than rival Applied Materials? Which stock does McWilliams recommend for investors looking to cover the semi equipment sector?  What other stock in the sector does McWilliams think investors should consider at this juncture?

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate.  In March, just two days before the market peaked and began its over two-month slide, he warned Next Inning readers that stock prices were peaking and a correction was headed our way.  Following this, once the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally through the Q2 earnings season.  As it turned out, this was one of the strongest rallies the market has seen in a very long time.

However, following the close on September 14, 2012, McWilliams published his most recent Strategy Review and, in that, predicted again that the markets were due for another drop ahead of the November election.  This time he nailed the year-to-date high to the day.  If you are a tech investor, you'll want to be sure to read what McWilliams predicts will happen next.

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.

McWilliams' highly acclaimed earnings previews are no being published, providing critical intelligence on dozens of tech sector firms ahead of their quarterly earnings reports. The reports, which identify the quarter's likely winners and losers, are available for free to Next Inning trial subscribers.

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 223% since its inception versus 59% for the S&P 500.
