PRINCETON, N.J., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued an updated outlook for Cree (Nasdaq: CREE).

Editor Paul McWilliams spent a decades-long career as a senior executive 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. 

Each quarter, Next Inning publishes weekly earnings previews covering dozens of technology stocks, giving investors both long-term and short-term opinions to help shape their investment strategy.

Among the stocks where Next Inning was positive ahead of Q4 earnings so far were Cree (up 51% year to date), PMC Sierra (up 26% year to date) and QLogic (up 17% year to date); he was bearish on Cypress (down 2% year to date).

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- McWilliams has helped investors make money on Cree for years. 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 grow profit margins in spite of dismal Wall Street forecasts.  With Cree now trading above $50, representing a quick double from McWilliams' buy price, does he think the investment has played out or is there reason to continue holding?  What does McWilliams see in store for Cree going forward?

-- While some may view Cree's new $10 LED bulb as surprising or even "an overnight success story," it was perfectly predictable for Next Inning readers who had been briefed on "Cree's Law."  What is "Cree's Law" and what does it suggest about Cree's future prospects?  How was Cree able to drive the price for a high-quality LED bulb down to $10?  Will $10 represent a tipping point for consumers that have been slow to adopt LED technology?  What differentiates the economics of the solar business, where the Chinese are competing successfully by using price, from the LED lighting business?  Why are Chinese companies at a distinct disadvantage when trying to compete with Cree?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 237% since its inception versus 70% for the S&P 500.
