Top Tech Analyst Publishes State of Tech Report, Issues Investor Updates and Revised Price Targets on 72 Companies, Including MIPS Technologies, Oclaro, Cavium, Maxim Integrated Products, and Juniper Networks

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for MIPS Technologies (Nasdaq: MIPS), Oclaro (Nasdaq: OCLR), Cavium (Nasdaq: CAVM), Maxim Integrated Products (Nasdaq: MXIM), and Juniper Networks (Nasdaq: JNPR).

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

-- MIPS: Was Wall Street right to grumble about MIPS' decision to discontinue earnings guidance, or were analysts focused on the wrong thing? How does McWilliams expect MIPS' strategy to monetize its portfolio to play out?  If we use the Broadcom license deal as a model, what does it imply about MIPS' potential stock price?  Is there still room to speculate in MIPS being acquired?

-- Oclaro: Where does Oclaro fit into the competitive landscape in the fiber optics sector? Should investors assume that Oclaro's lowered near-term outlook spells trouble for other companies in the fiber optics sector or that it is company-specific?  What strategies does McWilliams see as valid ways for investors to cover the fiber optics sector? What is McWilliams favorite stock in the fiber optics sector and what stock does McWilliams think investors who want deeper coverage should pair with this stock?

-- Cavium: Does EZchip's new NPS network processor pose a direct competitive threat to Cavium's core business model?  Do the underlying fundamentals support Cavium's current price?  What does McWilliams think about the way Cavium presents its non-GAAP data?  Does he think the company takes undue liberties in its report that are not common for other tech companies?  What does he see as a full price for Cavium's stock?  Going forward, does he think it's better to hold Cavium or EZchip?

-- Maxim: Does McWilliams have a positive view of Maxim? Did Maxim's generous dividend help it land a spot in McWilliams' Triple Crown Tech Stock Portfolio?  Should investors view Maxim as a potential strategic investment or does McWilliams think it is better thought of as being "speculative." What factors did McWilliams consider when making this decision?

-- Juniper Networks: After suggesting that investors should exit Juniper last year when the stock traded for more than twice the price we're seeing today, does McWilliams think it's time to buy Juniper while it is stuck in the mid-teens? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Juniper and how much upside does it represent?  What "trick" did Juniper use to make it appear it lowered its operating costs last year?  Does McWilliams expect Juniper to announce a restructuring effort this year?  What one thing does Juniper have more of than Cisco that McWilliams sees as a negative?

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.
