NI Technology Releases its State of Tech Report Providing 2012 Outlooks and Forecasts for EMC, VMWare, NetApp, Citrix and Alcatel-Lucent

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), announces the release of its earnings previews and its 2012 outlooks for Citrix Systems (Nasdaq: CTXS), EMC (NYSE: EMC), NetApp (Nasdaq: NTAP), VMWare (NYSE: VMW), and Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU).

Next Inning readers leverage the insight you can only get from an industry insider.  Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams was a tech industry executive for more than two decades.  Not only does he know how things work from the inside and how to spot a winning business model, he also has a long and successful record of picking winning stocks.

The OEM State of Tech report, which was published this morning, is the sixth in a series of reports that analyzes various tech sectors from the ground up.  This report covers some of the largest OEM tech companies in the world.  In its 25 pages, it includes 11 tables providing fundamental data and valuation analysis as well as detailed commentary, forecasts and actionable ideas for the various companies that are making headlines today.

Next Inning has already published its State of Tech Reports on broadband and smartphone semiconductor companies, digital semiconductor companies, electronic manufacturing services (EMS) companies, analog and mixed-signal semiconductor companies as well as a special in-depth report focused on Intel and its competitors.

Next Inning trial subscribers now have a rare opportunity to gain access to these valuable reports filled with actionable ideas on over five dozen stocks, via a free, no-strings-attached, trial subscription.

Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' regular commentary and real-time trade alerts in his Next Inning model portfolio, up 16% year to date.


McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

  • A year ago, McWilliams suggested that investors interested in virtualization should favor Citrix over VMWare.  As it turned out, Citrix modestly outperformed VMWare.  Going forward, which stock does McWilliams think investors should hold for 2012?  What does he think about splitting the bet and holding both or pairing VMWare's big brother, EMC, with a position in Citrix? 
  • A year ago, McWilliams suggested that NetApp shareholders sell and move proceeds to EMC.  During the year that followed, NetApp lost more than a third of its value while EMC held essentially flat.  Does McWilliams believe EMC is still the stock to hold going forward?  What is his price target for EMC?  What is the appropriate way to calculate EMC's value given its 80% ownership of VMWare?  What trends does McWilliams think will continue to favor EMC and VMWare?
  • What three distinct challenges did Alcatel-Lucent face in 2011? Will these challenges continue into 2012? Did Alcatel-Lucent make the right move in deciding to sell its customer contact software business Genesys? What is McWilliams' earnings forecast for Alcatel-Lucent in 2012? Could Alcatel-Lucent shares double or even triple from current levels this year?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 286% since its inception versus 45% for the S&P 500.  Year-to-date in 2012, the Next Inning model portfolio is up 17% after only 13 trading days.
