PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Nokia (NYSE: NOK), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), EZchip Semiconductor (Nasdaq: EZCH), Arris Group (Nasdaq: ARRS), and Harmonic (Nasdaq: HLIT).
So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate. He called the peak in March 2012 and warned readers of the subsequent correction two days before it started. 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.
As the markets began to peak in mid-September, McWilliams warned again that prices were poised to fall and would likely continue moving lower through early November. However, following this, McWilliams boldly called the market bottom on November 16th. Today McWilliams updated his near to mid-term outlook and advised readers they need to watch what he calls "The Apple Factor." McWilliams' recent reports reveal The Apple Factor and explain why all tech investors need to watch it carefully.
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. To this point, no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple.
In his latest reports, McWilliams offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers. Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted), and since then McWilliams has become one of the most trusted voices covering Apple and the consumer ecosystem business model it has pioneered. McWilliams' new, must-read report on Apple is available for free to trial Next Inning subscribers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Microsoft and Nokia: Might the Windows 8 roll-out provide a catalyst that will allow Microsoft shares to break out to the upside? Might investors interested in Microsoft look instead to Nokia as a potential high-beta play on the Microsoft's possible success? Why does McWilliams view Nokia's fortunes as tightly tied to Microsoft at this juncture?
-- EZchip: Is the market right to pay attention to reports of growth concerns at EZchip, or are these reports looking at EZchip the wrong way? Is EZchip well positioned to ramp up growth and avoid the competitive concerns cited in recent reports? Why does McWilliams call the most recent report from Seeking Alpha a "straw-man" argument that is easily dismantled?
-- Arris and Harmonic: What does the acquisition of Google's Motorola set-top box and video infrastructure business add to the Arris equation? Why might the acquisition actually be good news for Arris rival Harmonic in the near- to mid-term? Does McWilliams think it could also be a positive for Arris?
