During 2012, Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams predicted both the spring and fall corrections as well as the rally that started in November and carried through the first quarter of 2013.

These reports outline McWilliams' outlook for the second quarter and provide readers with deep insight into the world's leading tech companies. McWilliams also shares his opinions as to which of these companies investors should buy and which should be avoided.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Apple: Next Inning is known for helping its readers generate strong returns, and no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple. Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell. What does McWilliams think about rumored new products from Apple like iWatch, iTV and a steaming music venture to compete with Pandora? What evidence does McWilliams cite that led him to forecast last February that the next iPhone model will be introduced within three months? Does McWilliams think the price of Apple is poised for another run to $600 or higher or does he continue to believe investors should avoid the stock?
-- Cree: In 2012 when Cree was trudging through the low to mid-$20s, McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to build a position in the stock with his forecast that Cree would in fact be a big winner in the LED lighting market in spite of dismal Wall Street forecasts. With Cree now trading above $50, does McWilliams think the investment has played out or is there reason to continue holding? What does McWilliams think about Cree's aggressive move into LED lighting fixtures and LED bulbs? What does McWilliams see in store for Cree going forward?
-- EMC and VMware: Does McWilliams think EMC would be better off instituting a dividend policy rather than using its free cash flow to continually buy shares of VMware? Why does McWilliams say it's important for investors to view EMC's value from both a traditional valuation perspective as well as a deconstructed valuation perspective? What does McWilliams say is the right way to deconstruct EMC's valuation model and what price target does it suggest for EMC? What does McWilliams think about the new EMC/VMWare joint venture, Pivotal Initiative? At their current prices, does McWilliams think investors should buy EMC or VMWare? What does McWilliams think about EMC competitor, NetApp?
-- Juniper Networks: McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to sell Juniper in 2011 when the stock was trading in the $40s and maintained a bearish view of the stock until it dropped all the way to $16.31 in 2012 and reiterated a buy call in his Q2 2012 State of Tech report when the stock was trading at $17.11. Following that, he suggested hedging long positions by selling July 2013 $21.00 covered calls at the then current premium of $2.08. With the stock now back in the teens, does McWilliams think it's time to buy shares or cover for the short call position ahead of Juniper's earnings report, or that Juniper will disappoint again? What three factors should investors consider when evaluating Juniper's position in the networking market today?
-- Corning: Are Corning's key markets poised to make a rebound? Why is Corning's development of Willow Glass an important new technology beyond the fact it enables flexible displays? How might Willow Glass be a game-changer in terms of Corning's production process? Do new cutting-edge products developed by Corning have the potential to deliver future growth that is not well represented in Corning's stock price?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 229% since its inception versus 71% for the S&P 500.
