McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- McWilliams has been spot on with his analysis of Apple since the release of the iPod. In June 2003, McWilliams highlighted the growing traction of the iTunes platform, and recommended that Next Inning readers consider buying shares of Apple. Apple was trading at the split adjusted price of $9.39 when he made that call, and the stock has since moved higher by 6,300%. $10,000 invested in Apple at that time is now worth nearly $640,000. In January 2009 when Apple was trading for under $100, McWilliams pointed to how accounting policies were masking Apple's earnings a full nine months before it became a topic on Wall Street. In his updated Apple outlook, McWilliams addresses important topics including regulatory risks, direct competition and Apple's new leadership under CEO Tim Cook. In addition to these factors, he breaks down the financial complexities into easy to understand terms and provides detail as to how he arrived at his updated price target range for 2012.
-- With Google poised to complete its acquisition of Motorola Mobility, is the Android ecosystem likely to pose an even larger competitive threat to Apple's iPhone and iPad? What factors could increase the competitive threat to Apple?
-- Is Microsoft now on the cusp of a resurgence thanks to its Windows Phone 7 operating system and the impending release of Windows 8? Are Windows 8 tablets likely to be the first to dent the amazing dominance of the iPad?
-- After suggesting Next Inning readers sell Dell in April 2010 at $17, he flipped to a buy opinion later in the year when the stock was bottoming in the $12s. With Dell close to $17 again, is it time to sell or does McWilliams think the stock is poised to run much higher? What is Wall Street missing in the Dell story that is holding the stock back today?
-- McWilliams suggested selling HP in late 2010 when the stock was trading at $43.50. Now that HP has hired Meg Whitman to run the show does he think it's time to buy back in? What other aspects of the HP story does McWilliams think investors need to evaluate carefully before making a final buy decision?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 304% since its inception versus 54% for the S&P 500.
