PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), Arrow Electronics (NYSE: ARW), Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP) and ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN).
After a series of reports that nailed the market's high and low points in 2012, Editor Paul McWilliams has published his outlook for 2013. His new State of Tech report covers 72 technology stocks and outlines which stocks investors will want to own and which they should avoid. The report also dives deep into a number of exciting, emerging tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street curve.
This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology in 2013. Trial subscribers will receive the 126-page report, which includes 35 detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' earnings previews, offering in-depth coverage ahead of key earnings reports for dozens of tech stocks.
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.
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). However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell. What led McWilliams to predict Apple's decline late in 2012 and what does he now predict for the stock in 2013? In recent reports, McWilliams also offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Alcatel-Lucent: In an October 2012 report, with Alcatel-Lucent trading at $1.10, McWilliams laid out data points suggesting that the odds of an Alcatel-Lucent turnaround had improved? With shares now 54% higher, does McWilliams see further upside ahead for the stock? Could Alcatel-Lucent shares reach $2.00 this year?
-- TriQuint: After a major transition year in 2012, is TriQuint poised for upside in 2013? Will TriQuint's positioning as an Apple supplier be a positive for the stock in 2013? Is McWilliams expecting a positive earnings report from TriQuint this week? What is McWilliams top-down thesis for the RF semiconductor sector this year and why did the sector perform so poorly in 2012?
-- Arrow: McWilliams advised readers to buy Arrow and its rival, Avnet when the stocks were bottoming in the fall of 2012. What is McWilliams' view of Arrow heading into its upcoming earnings report? Does McWilliams prefer Arrow over rival Avnet? What valuation penalty does Wall Street tend to apply to mega-distributors like Arrow and why is that likely to continue?
-- Microchip: Could a recent partnership between Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and Renesas be disruptive to Microchip's business model? What other changes occurred during 2012 in the embedded processor sector that present new competitive challenges for Microchip? Are there longer term threats investors should consider?
-- ON Semi: In October 2012, McWilliams wrote that sentiment toward ON Semi would improve significantly in the next six months. With ON Semi shares now 32% higher, is McWilliams expecting further upside for the stock or should investors look to exit the name on any post-earnings pop?
