Market Overview

Leading Tech Analyst Publishes Updated Outlooks on Oclaro, Lattice Semiconductor, DragonWave, MIPS Technologies, and Cree


PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Oclaro (Nasdaq: OCLR), Lattice Semiconductor (Nasdaq: LSCC), DragonWave (Nasdaq: DRWI), MIPS Technologies (Nasdaq: MIPS), and Cree (Nasdaq: CREE).

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate.  He called the peak in March 2012 and warned readers of the subsequent correction two days before it started.  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 an updated 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.  Technology investors and analysts will want to be sure to read what McWilliams predicts will happen in 2013 in his upcoming year-end State of Tech report.

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.

In his latest reports, McWilliams offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers. 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), and since then McWilliams has become one of the most trusted voices covering Apple and the consumer ecosystem business model it has pioneered. McWilliams' new, must-read report on Apple is available for free to trial Next Inning subscribers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Oclaro: McWilliams wrote earlier this year that Oclaro presented a balance sheet risk, would need to raise money and should be avoided. Since then, the company has announced a sale of part of its business and a debt offering. Will this be enough? With Oclaro shares now down -21% from where it was when McWilliams warned investors to avoid the stock, is it time to buy?  What stock does McWilliams view as the best way to cover the fiber optics sector?

-- Lattice Semiconductor: What two positive factors are likely behind Lattice's recent strength? What one piece to the Lattice puzzle has yet to fall into place?

-- DragonWave: Is DragonWave building traction with its Avenue product line that was developed for the new trend in "small-cell" basestations? Is Sprint's likely move to control Clearwire a positive for DragonWave?

-- MIPS: On November 15, McWilliams wrote that he believed a better offer would emerge for MIPS' ongoing business that what Imagination Technologies had proposed. On November 21, CEVA announced a higher offer and again McWilliams' wrote that higher offers would emerge. This week, Imagination countered with a higher offer, which was quickly followed by a higher bid from CEVA? Is McWilliams expecting the price of MIPS to be driven still higher by the bidding war? Could another, more high-profile bidder emerge?

-- Cree: Could privately held Bridgelux be a serious competitor to Cree? What's the history behind Bridgelux and Cree?  Is there any ongoing financial relationship between the two companies?  Trial subscribers will have full access to Next Inning's substantial archive of Cree reports.

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 228% since its inception versus 57% for the S&P 500.
