PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Ciena (Nasdaq: CIEN), Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Nokia (NYSE: NOK).

Over the past ten years, more than a thousand Wall Street analysts, money managers and institutional investors have joined thousands of savvy private investors in gaining an edge in the markets thanks to the key tech industry insights and intelligence offered by industry veteran and celebrated investor Paul McWilliams in his role as editor of Next Inning Technology Research.

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.

In his latest reports, McWilliams offers detailed updates on a number of tech stocks. These reports include revised earnings estimates and price targets and offer unrivaled insights to help investors and analysts understand the likely winners and losers in the tech sector.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Ciena: After successfully swing-trading Ciena for years, McWilliams flipped to a bullish view on the company in his Q4 2012 State of Tech report, and set a 2013 price target of $20.  There he advised readers that the demand drivers for Ciena would steadily improve as we moved through 2013, and as revenue improved, that Ciena would report a profit for its April ending quarter. What should Ciena investors expect from the company's earnings report this week? With expectations of increased wire-line telecom spending, does McWilliams see more upside for the stock?

-- Finisar: While some Wall Street analysts painted a picture of doom and gloom for Finisar and suggested new innovations in silicon-photonics would derail its business model, McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to buy when the stock was trading in the low $12s.  In his reports, McWilliams carefully explained why the analysts worried about silicon-photonics were wrong and why Finisar's high marginal profitability would drive its earnings well above expectations.  In his earnings preview, McWilliams expands beyond this and lays out his views and forecasts for the second half of Finisar's fiscal 2014.  This is a must read report for tech investors and analysts.

-- Microsoft and Nokia: Last Thursday, a Next Inning reader asked McWilliams to handicap the odds of Microsoft hiring Nokia's CEO, Stephen Elop to replace the departing Steve Ballmer.  McWilliams responded confidently that he thought Elop would be the ideal replacement, but that for other reasons Microsoft would buy Nokia.  What led McWilliams to predict that this acquisition was in the works and what beyond Elop does he think Microsoft gets in the deal.

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 286% since its inception versus 80% for the S&P 500.
