Jan 14, 2013, 09:46 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM), Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), and ARM Holdings (Nasdaq: ARMH).

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:

-- Linear Technology: Just one day before Linear Tech hit its low for the year last June, McWilliams "strongly" recommended buying the stock at its then current price of $28.75.  McWilliams rarely makes "strong" suggestions like this so why did he make an exception in this case?  Has he changed his opinion now that Linear Tech has reached his price objective or are there now reasons to raise the target? 

-- TSMC: McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to buy TSMC in December 2008 when the stock was trading for $7.50 and followed that up with one of his highly acclaimed Paradigm Papers, describing how changing industry trends would favor TSMC during the next few years.  Including dividends, this strategy has produced a profit of nearly 170%.  Has the Paradigm played out?  Should investors holding TSMC lock in profits while everything still looks rosy, or is there more of the same to come?  What is in process of changing that will increase the pressure on TSMC to up its investment in capital equipment?  Why is this a critical lynch pin in the competition between Intel and fabless semiconductor companies that use processor cores from ARM Holdings?

-- Intel: What two factors drove gains for Intel stock in December? Are these factors still at work for Intel in 2013, or are there new reasons for investors to be bullish about Intel?  In his in-depth earnings preview, McWilliams chronicles what has led Intel to this point and predicts how it will fare against companies using ARM Holdings processor designs going forward.  Intel investors don't want to miss this update. 

-- Xilinx: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would outperform Altera.  Because Altera had been the big winner during the last two years, this was a bold forecast that went against the grain of Wall Street forecasts.  However, McWilliams was right – Xilinx was the winner hands down in all categories. Wall Street is now projecting Xilinx to grow earnings much faster than Altera again in 2013. Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive investment than its rival Altera? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are important to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams see these trends shaping up for 2013?
