Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Micron: In his Q4 2012 State of Tech report, McWilliams wrote that Micron was a buy at its then current price of $6.34 and set an exit target in the high $9s. Ahead of Micron's recent earnings report, McWilliams reiterated his opinion and wrote the easy money has been made and to look for an exit in the high $9s to low $10s. The price of Micron peaked at $10.27 and traded above $10 for five consecutive days. Investors who followed McWilliams advice were rewarded with a gain of roughly 60% inside three months. With the price now back in the low $9s, is it time to buy Micron again? What price objective does McWilliams see as realistic for Micron in the second half of 2013 and what does he think will drive it?
-- Cisco: McWilliams was quick to advise Next Inning readers that Wall Street was wrong when it pushed Cisco's price under $15 in July 2012 and wrote that it should be viewed as a buying opportunity. With the price of Cisco now up over 40% from its 2012 low, does McWilliams believe the stock is still trading at an attractive price? Is Cisco poised for above-trend growth in 2013? What specifically does McWilliams see changing for Cisco in 2013 and how does he think those changes will impact the price of Cisco's stock?
-- EMC and VMware: Does McWilliams think EMC would be better off instituting a dividend policy rather than using its free cash flow to continually buy shares of VMware? Why does McWilliams say it's important for investors to view EMC's value from both a traditional valuation perspective as well as a deconstructed valuation perspective? What does McWilliams say is the right way to deconstruct EMC's valuation model and what price target does it suggest for EMC? What does McWilliams think about the new EMC VMWare joint venture, Pivotal Initiative? At their current prices, does McWilliams think investors should buy EMC or VMWare? What does McWilliams think about EMC competitor, NetApp?
-- Oracle: When Oracle announced it would hire Mark Hurd, McWilliams wrote without caveat that investors should buy stock at the then current price of $24. He reiterated that call recently when the price of Oracle dipped into the low $30s. Now that the price of Oracle has recovered some from its recent lows, does McWilliams think there is still enough upside potential for investors to buy here? What specific trends does McWilliams see developing that he thinks will favor Oracle? Why does McWilliams think Oracle is really interested in acquiring Acme Packet? Where can Oracle leverage Acme's unique positioning in session control within its core business model? Is Oracle well positioned to be a big winner as the "Big Data" paradigm takes hold?
