Top Tech Analyst Issues “State of Tech – A Guide for the Q2 Earnings Season” With Updated Outlooks for 67 Companies, Including Apple, Intel, Cisco, EMC and Hewlett-Packard
PRINCETON, N.J., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published a new special report designed to help investors prepare for earnings season. This report covers 67 tech stocks including Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), EMC (NYSE: EMC) and Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ).
Editor Paul McWilliams is best known for spotting big winners like long before they are recognized by Wall Street. Nearly a decade ago he advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). McWilliams is also well known for accurately predicting market inflections. He predicted the recent market correction only two trading days before the markets began their long and painful fall in late March.
In his new special “State of Tech” report, McWilliams offers in depth data and analysis on 67 tech companies expected to report aggregate revenue in excess of $800 billion this year. The report includes McWilliams’ second half outlook and full value price ranges for all 67 stocks. With this data, investors can appropriately position themselves for the July earnings season.
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 thinks his 62-page State of Tech report should be read by all tech investors and is making it, along with his special report “Triple Crown Tech Stocks,” available free of charge to all who sign up for a no-obligation free trial to Next Inning Technology Research.

McWilliams’ latest report covers the following topics:
– Apple: McWilliams first suggested considering Apple as a good speculative investment in June 2003 at the split adjusted price of $9.85. As Apple moved above the $600 level for the first time, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to consider diversifying away from Apple and locking in the 6,000% profit. Should investors consider trimming stakes further now that Apple is again toying with $600 or are there better places to allocate for growth? Does McWilliams expect it’s possible for the price of Apple to double from here?
– Intel: With a long record of correct predictions under his belt, what is McWilliams expecting from Intel in its upcoming quarterly report and outlook for the seasonally hot third quarter? Is Intel poised to continue to surpass expectations or have global factors limited its potential? How is the competition shaping up in the smartphone, tablet, PC and enterprise markets? Why does McWilliams say 2012 is a “traction building year for Intel” and claim Wall Street is significantly underestimating the company’s growth potential for 2013? What is McWilliams’ long-term outlook for Intel and what is his full value price target for Intel shares?
– Cisco: Why isn’t it surprising that the price of Cisco took a hit during the last quarter? Is it likely that spending by Cisco’s key customers will make a sharp recovery and spur growth during the second half? With a low valuation and a reasonably nice dividend, did Cisco make it into McWilliams’ “Triple Crown” tech stock portfolio that targets beating the S&P500 in dividend yield, value and growth potential?
– EMC: What is McWilliams only concern about EMC? Does McWilliams think EMC would be better off instituting a dividend policy than maintaining its 80% ownership of VMware? Why does McWilliams say it’s important for investors to view EMC’s value from both a traditional perspective as well as a deconstructed perspective? What does McWilliams say is the right way to deconstruct EMC’s valuation model?
– Hewlett-Packard: McWilliams advised Next Inning readers without hesitation to sell at HP’s then current price of $44 when it announced the termination of Mark Hurd and pulled no punches in his critique of his replacement. Does he think HP’s newest CEO, Meg Whitman, is making the right moves to turn HP around? Does McWilliams think HP is a stock to consider now that it is trading for less than half his exit price?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 255% since its inception versus 49% for the S&P 500.
