McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:
-- McWilliams flipped to a bullish stance on Finisar in June 2009 when the stock was trading for just $4.16 With the stock now trading for nearly 10 times that price, does McWilliams see further upside ahead? What was McWilliams' bullish thesis for Finisar in 2009 and 2010, and does that thesis remain valid? What are the critical trends in the optical networking sector set to impact Finisar in 2011?
-- McWilliams suggested buying shares of JDS Uniphase in late 2008 at its then current price of only $2.87. How does JDS Uniphase compare to rival Finisar? Which of the two stocks is now trading at a more attractive valuation? Is Wall Street looking at JDS Uniphase the wrong way?
-- McWilliams suggested buying shares of Bookham, which subsequently became Oclaro, in 2008 at its then current price of $1.70. Where does Oclaro fit into the optical networking picture? Through merger, acquisition, and organic growth, is Oclaro finally large enough to enjoy some operating efficiencies? What is holding shares of Oclaro back right now and is the company likely to overcome those challenges?
-- Should investors be enthusiastic about Nokia's surprise move to partner with Microsoft at the expense of its own mobile software offerings? What are the chances of Nokia becoming "one of the biggest turnarounds in tech history?"
-- Should investors be concerned about a shift in EZchip's relative sales away from Juniper Networks and other customers? Does McWilliams expect EZchip to do well in 2011?
