Leading Tech Analyst Said 'Sell' Apple When It Traded Above $700; Latest Reports Outline New Direction for Apple Stock

PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published an updated outlook on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL).

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate.  He called the peak in March 2012 and warned readers of the subsequent correction two days before it started.  Following this, once the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally through the Q2 earnings season.  As it turned out, this was one of the strongest rallies the market has seen in a very long time.

As the markets began to peak in mid-September, McWilliams warned again that prices were poised to fall and would likely continue moving lower through early November.  However, following this, McWilliams boldly called the market bottom on November 16th.  Today McWilliams updated his near to mid-term outlook and advised readers they need to watch what he calls "The Apple Factor."  McWilliams' recent reports reveal The Apple Factor and explain why all tech investors need to watch it carefully. 

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in 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.  To this point, no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple.

In his latest reports, McWilliams offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers. Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted), and since then McWilliams has become one of the most trusted voices covering Apple and the consumer ecosystem business model it has pioneered. McWilliams' new, must-read report on Apple is available for free to trial Next Inning subscribers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- In his new Strategy Update, McWilliams revealed what he has identified as "The Apple Factor." What is this and why is it so important for all tech investors to watch?

-- McWilliams has consistently been ahead of the curve when it comes to Apple.  Nearly ten years ago, he suggested buying the stock when it was trading for less than $10 (split adjusted).  In January 2009, when Apple dipped below $100, McWilliams pointed to how accounting policies were masking Apple's true profitability.  However, earlier this year when Apple made its first run to the mid-$600s, he advised Next Inning readers it was time to take profits and reiterated that view in the fall as Apple moved above $700.  In his report, "Is the Shine off Apple?", McWilliams reveals the six factors that are behind the recent pullback in the price of Apple and advises investors on whether it's time to buy Apple again.  This is a must read report for all Apple analysts and investors.

-- With the price of Apple now far below where McWilliams suggested selling earlier this year does he think it's time to buy again?  Does McWilliams think it's reasonable to forecast Apple again moving above $700 or does he think it's better for investors to set more conservative targets?

-- What are the two most significant risks facing Apple and its shareholders today?

-- What two things must Apple deliver to its customers to maintain its successful market trajectory?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 229% since its inception versus 59% for the S&P 500.
