Apple and the Tipping Point That Will Drive Above-Market Returns for Tech Stocks

Oct 09, 2013, 08:59 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Wave Systems (Nasdaq: WAVX), NXP Semiconductors (Nasdaq: NXPI), Atmel (Nasdaq: ATML), Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), and Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM).

Next Inning Editor Paul McWilliams has been a leading analyst covering the technology sector for over a decade. McWilliams is known for helping its readers generate strong returns, and no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple. Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). While many analysts turned negative on Apple when Steve Jobs died, McWilliams maintained his strongly bullish opinion. However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell.

In his latest special report "The Tipping Point of Implementation," McWilliams carefully explains why it often takes years for new technology innovations to reach a point of mass implementation.  Tech investors often pride themselves in spotting new innovations, but then lose money because they aren't implemented in the market as quickly as they expected.  This report helps investors learn how to discover what leads to mass implementation of new technologies and addresses one specific new development in the smartphone industry that is finally ready for prime time implementation.

What is this important new technology that Apple implemented in its new iPhone 5S that analysts are overlooking and what will it mean for smartphone users?  Does Apple really have a lead with this new technology or are semiconductor companies like Atmel and NXP poised to make it easy for Apple's competitors to defuse any competitive advantages?  Why does McWilliams believe Intel and Qualcomm may be the biggest beneficiaries as this technology is more broadly adopted in the smartphone sector and the rapidly emerging "Internet of Things (IoT), and where does he think it will lead over the longer term?

The report, which available for free to trial subscribers, also covers the evolution of security technology that has been chased by companies like Wave Systems, and it handicaps how tech blue chips like Apple, Intel, and Qualcomm may benefit from this broad new paradigm, alongside smaller names like Atmel and NXP, both early movers in sensor technology. The report includes McWilliams' investment opinions on all of the stocks mentioned above.
