Technology Presses Forward - Research Report on Microsoft Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Company, Cray Inc., Dell Inc. and Apple Inc.

NEW YORK, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ), Cray Inc. (NASDAQ:CRAY), Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Microsoft Corporation Research Report

Microsoft, once the most dominant software company in the world, recently entered the computer hardware business with its Surface tablet, hoping to veer away people from Apple's iPad and cheaper tablets that carry Google's Android operating system. However, sales have been dismal as customers expected the tablet to replace their laptops when it was found out it was unable to run traditional windows applications. The Surface Pro is what customers were looking for in a Windows-powered tablet, but critics have panned the device altogether with lackluster battery life and high price tag. However, the company is optimistic with its Windows 8 sales thanks to better Surface-inspired hardware from vendors such as HP, Dell, and Lenovo. Sales of the OS are starting to reach Windows 7 levels, and should eclipse that this year with Windows 8 hybrids, which could soon eclipse today's tablets. In addition, the launch of its new generation of its Xbox gaming console could help bring more profits moving forward.

Hewlett-Packard Company Research Report

After its last attempt to enter the tablet market, computer hardware giant Hewlett-Packard has re-entered the mobile market with the announcement of a NVIDIA Tegra 4-powered Android tablet, which would also be the first tablet to carry NVIDIA's new chip. This comes after HP set up a new mobility division late last year to focus on consumer tablets and other mobile offerings. The company is also looking to step up its oversight on Chinese suppliers, who are known to take advantage of student and temporary workers, after the Chinese government implemented an enactment protecting the said workers. HP proposes that students from vocational schools will be limited in their suppliers' workforce, must work in an area relevant to their study, and be allowed to leave without penalty after giving reasonable notice.

Cray Inc. Research Report

Supercomputer manufacturer Cray saw its stock price rise 7.1 percent to 19.47 after releasing its Q4 and full year 2012 financial results. The company reported revenue of $188.8 million for the quarter, just barely surpassing the consensus estimate of $187.6 million, while posting higher GAAP reported sales of $91.6 million. Earnings per share meanwhile came in at 44 cents, which came up short of the expected 51 cents per share. Last month, the company scored a $23 million contract to supply supercomputers to a German weather prediction center, which is touted as the company's comeback plan as more tech companies are adopting the almost abandoned technology of supercomputing once again, with the rise of the field known as "Big Data."

Dell Inc. Research Report

Computer hardware manufacturer Dell is inching closer to going private, after CEO Michael Dell agreed to roll over his shares at a lower price in order to facilitate the $24 billion deal, agreeing that the shares will be valued at $13.36 per share compared to the previously agreed-upon $13.65 offered to the shareholders. However, as more investment firms with ownership stakes in the company oppose the sale, the price of the deal may still go higher. In addition, the opposition could instead result to either spinning off Dell's personal computer business and/or make major acquisitions to beef up its competitive position, both of which are being looked into by the company if going private may not push through.

Apple Inc. Research Report

Consumer electronics juggernaut Apple has long been rumored to be working on a piece of wearable technology in a form of a watch, possibly named "iWatch." There are also talks of outing a lower-cost iPhone to tap into the emerging markets that its Android-toting competitors are currently dominating. However, it is not seen if both products could get Apple out of its stock price rut, which is now at the $400 level from highs of more than $700 per share last year. Nevertheless, the company still has $137 billion in cash and could see an additional $40 billion every year with its continuing sales of iPhones, iPads, and more. Analysts believe that Apple will be growing 15 to 16 percent this year, and an additional 12 to 14 percent in 2014.
