Top Tech Analyst Issues Special Report ‘Would Apple Buy Netflix?’ and Updates Outlooks on Universal Display Corporation, Cree and SemiLEDS

June 27, 2012

PRINCETON, N.J., June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX), Universal Display Corporation (Nasdaq: PANL), Cree (Nasdaq: CREE) and SemiLEDs (Nasdaq: LEDS).

Editor Paul McWilliams is best known for spotting big winners like Apple early. He advised Next Inning readers to buy Apple nearly a decade ago when the stock was trading below $10 and earlier this year, he advised investors to take some profits when it spiked above $600.

In his new special report “Would Apple Buy Netflix?” McWilliams looks at the possibility that Apple would use its massive cash hoard to buy Netflix, offering a detailed look at what Netflix has to offer an acquirer and what Apple needs right now. When paired with his recent investigative reporting about Google’s planned venture into the TV service provider market, this report is thought-provoking to say the least.

Trial subscribers will also gain free access to McWilliams’ acclaimed State of Tech Report on Intel, offering a deep analysis of the tech blue chip and the companies in its ecosystem. In addition, trial subscribers will receive Next Inning’s new “Triple Crown Tech Stocks” in which McWilliams lays out a new tech investing paradigm focused on a “triple crown” of dividends, value, and growth. In the report, McWilliams’ report outlines which of these stocks are likely to maintain and grow their dividends, providing a source of wealth for investors for years to come.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:

  • Netflix: What does Netflix have that is of value and is it likely to offer anything that is a critical need for Apple right now? Is Netflix trading at a valuation that would be attractive to a potential acquirer? Might a company other than Apple be a better potential suitor for Netflix?
  • Apple: What would Apple stand to gain from acquiring Netflix? What does Netflix offer that Apple doesn’t already have or could easily develop internally? Is Apple better off building its own version of Netflix than seeking to acquire the company?
  • Universal Display Corp: McWilliams strongly advised readers to avoid Universal Display last August when the stock was trading for more than $50. Considering that the price of its stock fell by more than 50% before bottoming in May 2012, that was clearly a good call. However, quite a bit has changed since then and with the price still hovering in the $30s, McWilliams answers the question: Is now the right time to buy?
  • Cree and SemiLEDs: Following SemiLEDs’ very successful IPO in 2010, McWilliams suggested it was best to avoid the stock. Not only did he think it was significantly over-valued at its then current mid-$20s price, he also noted that the “wide-reaching” patent infringement suit brought against it by Cree was a threat. Now that the suit has been resolved in Cree’s favor and SemiLEDs is trading at a fraction of its former price, does McWilliams believe it’s time to reconsider SemiLEDs, or should investors stick with Cree as the best way to gain exposure to the LED industry?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 250% since its inception versus 46% for the S&P 500.
