PRINCETON, N.J., March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), JDS Uniphase (Nasdaq: JDSU), AT&T (NYSE: T), Verizon (NYSE: VZ), and Sprint (NYSE: S).
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. Year to date in 2012 these picks have driven a 22% gain for the Next Inning Model Portfolio. Since its inception in 2002, the model portfolio is up over 300%.
In his extensive pre-earnings coverage of Finisar, McWilliams predicted correctly that Finisar would guide below earnings expectations and why. He also advised investors to wait for a post-earnings dip; as he expected, the stock gapped lower following earnings, giving investors an opportunity to pick up shares at a bargain price before the stock rebounded.
For McWilliams the Finisar story started back in mid-2009 when he suggested it was time to buy at the then current sub-$5 price. It took a while for Wall Street to catch on, but when it did, McWilliams suggested it was time to hedge risks by selling covered calls that extracted nearly 100% of the original buy price.
Investors who are not familiar with covered calls will enjoy the numerous tutorials available under the "How Things Work" tab on the Next Inning dashboard. Trial subscribers have full access to these tutorials as well as McWilliams' latest reports on Finisar, including in-depth coverage on where he expects the stock to go in 2012.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:
-- What specific factors and market changes does McWilliams think will drive Finisar's business going forward? Where and why does he think Finisar will pick up market share during the next year? Where does Finisar have competitive advantages over its competitor, JDS Uniphase? In spite of this, why does he think it makes sense for investors to consider holding both Finisar and JDS Uniphase? What does McWilliams forecast Finisar will report for earnings during its fiscal year ending April 2013? What is McWilliams' three- to six-month target price for Finisar?
-- With major mobile carriers like AT&T and Verizon increasingly forced to move away from unlimited data plans thanks to bandwidth-hungry smartphones, how does McWilliams expect the companies to compete going forward? Is Sprint likely to capitalize on these developments by sticking with its unlimited plan? What little-known small cap stock may be a big winner as the mobile carriers look for ways to alleviate bandwidth bottlenecks in big cities like New York and San Francisco?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 301% since its inception versus 51% for the S&P 500.
