Editor Paul McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:
-- Apple: Amid ongoing unrest at Foxconn plants that manufacture Apple products there are concerns that Apple may not be able to keep pace with demand. This clearly points to the risk of sole-sourcing production that Apple has so far ignored. However, with the risk now in the forefront, some analysts think Apple will add a new production source. While there is no shortage of companies that offer low-cost labor solutions, McWilliams thinks there is one that stands above the rest. According to him, this publicly traded company has both the scope and scale to handle the added volume Apple would bring and, if he is right, there is little doubt its stock price will soar. McWilliams named this company in a recent report and provided a deep fundamental analysis of it and other candidates in his Q3 State of Tech report.
-- 3D Systems: Does McWilliams agree with the pundits that predict a bright future for 3D printing technology? What factors do investors need to consider when investing in 3D Systems? What does McWilliams think about the value proposition 3D provides investors? What does he see as the one threat to 3D's business that is very hard to define today? What does McWilliams' assessment of the company's balance sheet reveal?
-- Facebook: McWilliams wrote in February that he wouldn't touch the Facebook IPO. He suggested instead that Next Inning readers look at Google. McWilliams reiterated that call just ahead of the FB offering and has maintained a negative view of FB ever since. As it stands today, the price of Google has moved substantially higher while Facebook has lost nearly half of its value. Is a new lawsuit from Document Security Systems cause for more concern for Facebook investors?
-- Document Security Systems: What is McWilliams' view of investing in companies like Document Security Systems that look to monetize patent portfolios as their primary business model?
-- Fabrinet: Where does Fabrinet fit into the broader fiber optics and EMS sectors? Why are its profit margins higher than those of most other EMS companies? What are the primary challenges facing Fabrinet right now? Has Fabrinet been oversold at current levels? What company does McWilliams think is the best investment for investors interested in allocating money to the fiber optics sector?
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.
