Top Tech Analyst: Following Earnings, the Two Things Apple Needs to Do That Will Send the Stock Substantially Higher
PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), Arrow Electronics (NYSE: ARW), Corning (NYSE: GLW), Atmel (Nasdaq: ATML) and Cavium (Nasdaq: CAVM).
Next Inning Editor Paul McWilliams has been a leading analyst covering the technology sector for over a decade, and he is well-known for his stellar track record when it comes to Apple. In 2003, McWilliams advised readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). While many analysts turned negative on Apple when Steve Jobs died, McWilliams maintained his strongly bullish opinion. However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell.
In McWilliams' detailed earnings review covering Apple, McWilliams' offers an in depth look at what Apple delivered when it reported earnings today, and he laid out the path Apple must follow in order for shares to move significantly higher. This is an absolute must-read report for all Apple investors and analysts.

Also included in McWilliams' earnings previews this week:
-- Flextronics: Heading into 2013, McWilliams carefully explained why 2012 was a "transformational" year for Flextronics and why he thought the company would report above the then current consensus expectations of the covering analysts for both fiscal 2014 (ends March 2014) and fiscal 2015. As we know now, Flextronics is well on its way to fulfilling those projections and has posted a nearly 45% year-to-date gain for investors in 2013. Is Flextronics now fairly valued based on McWilliams' detailed valuation analysis, or does he see further upside ahead? What does McWilliams say about Flextronics and other players in the EMS sector in his highly acclaimed Paradigm Papers?
-- Arrow: McWilliams advised readers to buy Arrow and its rival, Avnet when the stocks were bottoming in the fall of 2012. What is McWilliams' view of Arrow heading into its upcoming earnings report? Does McWilliams prefer Arrow over rival Avnet? What valuation penalty does Wall Street tend to apply to mega-distributors like Arrow and why is that likely to continue?
-- Corning: Does McWilliams see upside drivers for Corning that aren't yet reflected in the stock price? What does McWilliams see driving Corning's growth this year and what does the company have on tap that he thinks will continue the trend into 2014 and beyond?
-- Atmel: Is McWilliams expecting Atmel to exceed analysts' expectations when it reports earnings this week? Could Q4 guidance be better than expected? What options strategy can Atmel investors use to manage risks ahead of the company's earnings report?
-- Cavium: Wall Street is clearly excited about Cavium's prospects for growth. The question is: are they too excited? Even with reasonably sound forecasts of forward revenue and earnings growth, has the price of Cavium overshot a rational valuation, and if so, what price level would be a good point to buy the stock? Are Cavium shares overvalued heading into the company's earnings report this week?
