PRINCETON, N.J., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), Mellanox Technologies (Nasdaq: MLNX), Corning (NYSE: GLW), Cree (Nasdaq: CREE) and Harmonic (Nasdaq: HLIT).
Editor Paul McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry, and has earned a reputation for his skill at 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.
McWilliams' smart calls on Apple have been in the spotlight recently. McWilliams first suggested considering Apple as a good speculative investment in June 2003 at the split adjusted price of $9.85. As Apple moved above the $600 level for the first time earlier this year, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to consider diversifying away from Apple and locking in the 6,000% profit. McWilliams most recent reports on Apple address whether Apple investors should consider trimming stakes further on any move above $600.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- Finisar: What is McWilliams' updated outlook and forecast for Finisar based on its earnings report on Monday? What's going well and what's not going so well for the company? When does McWilliams expect the tide to turn in the fiber optics industry and what is Finisar doing that should position it to take market share during the second half of this year? Does McWilliams expect that shares of Finisar are poised to rebound above $20?
-- Mellanox: How important is Mellanox's recently announced InfiniBand win at Intel? Is Mellanox likely to maintain its competitive lead on Intel? Should investors consider taking profits on Mellanox's recent strength? What options strategy can Mellanox investors use to reduce downside risk and potentially collect over $75 per share in just over six months?
-- Corning: Why is Corning's recently unveiled Willow Glass an important new technology? How might Willow Glass be a game-changer in the display, solar and OLED lighting industries? Is Corning now trading at a bargain price, suggesting a rare buying opportunity for investors? Does McWilliams see Corning as having the fundamentals necessary to push its price above $20 during the next six to nine months?
-- Cree: What are the four elements that are important in LED lighting? Should Cree investors be concerned about LED firms focusing on the market for "A" series (Edison) bulbs? What does McWilliams think about the new design approach being used by SWITCH Lighting? Why are most LED lighting companies, including Cree, focused on the reflector (R and PAR) light bulb replacement market? Why does it make sense for Cree to move as strongly as it has into the fixture industry? Why does the use of LEDs change the game in the fixture industry?
-- Harmonic: While the market is viewing a recent win at a European telecom operator as incremental, why might this announcement be much more notable than Wall Street now believes? What is unique about the system Harmonic sold into this application and how might the customer leverage it in ways that leads to significantly more business for Harmonic? Why has the term "monetizing services" become a hot trend in the service provider business and how does it apply to Harmonic's strategy?
