Top Tech Analyst Publishes State of Tech Report, Issues Investor Updates and Revised Price Targets on 72 Companies, Including Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Advanced Micro Devices, and Cree

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL), Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), Dell (Nasdaq: DELL), Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), and Cree (Nasdaq: CREE).

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

-- Oracle: Is Oracle poised to resolve its long-standing inability to effectively leverage its acquisition of Sun Microsystems? Is the company well-positioned to establish an enterprise ecosystem under the leadership of Larry Ellison and Mark Hurd?

-- Hewlett-Packard: McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to sell HP then current price of $43.50 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 barely more than a third of his exit price?

-- Dell: Is Dell making progress in building out its enterprise ecosystem strategy? Is Wall Street right to focus on Dell's performance in the PC market or is softness there masking progress Dell is making towards its development of a higher profit margin business? What tangible data does McWilliams use to evaluate this progress? With the institution of a new dividend policy, did Dell make the cut in McWilliams' "Triple Crown" tech stock portfolio?

-- AMD: Since McWilliams advised AMD investors to sell in early July when AMD was trading just over $6, AMD shares have fallen dramatically. Are shares now trading at a bargain price, or should investors continue to steer clear? What factors are working in AMD's favor right now and what challenges is it facing?

-- Cree: Why did it make sense for Cree to move as strongly as it has into the fixture industry? Why does the use of LEDs change the game in the fixture industry and provide vertically integrated companies like Cree with unique leverage points? Does McWilliams believe LED technology will eventually take over the lighting industry?

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 State of Tech Report, a comprehensive guide for the Q3 2012 earnings season has just been published. This report covers 72 leading and emerging tech companies that are expected to generate nearly one trillion dollars in sales next year from twelve sectors ranging from materials and wafer fabrication to finished goods. This in depth report includes in-depth fundamental data and McWilliams' investment outlook, and will be available free of charge to all who sign up for a no-obligation free trial to Next Inning Technology Research.
