PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for InvenSense (NYSE: INVN), Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), and Texas Instruments (Nasdaq: TXN).

Over the past decade, well over a thousand Wall Street analysts, money managers and institutional investors have joined thousands of savvy private investors in gaining key tech industry insights and intelligence from industry veteran and celebrated investor Paul McWilliams in his role as editor of Next Inning Technology Research.

"I value your research more than any others I read," said one hedge fund manager of Next Inning, recently. And a long-time tech industry analyst for a Wall Street research firm said, "I believe your research and calls are the best I have ever seen in my career." With McWilliams' impressive track record and unparalleled industry access, NI Technology Research has become an essential tool for analysts and investors looking to navigate today's complex technology landscape.

It's a technology little-known outside high-tech circles, yet it supports critical functions in many of the highest-volume consumer products, like the Nintendo's Wii, Apple's iPhone and iPad and every Android smartphone shipped in the world. This often overlooked technology is known as Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), and forecasters say it's destined for a continued high-growth curve. 

MEMS technology is also critical to the delivery of 4G cellular services and is now also used in many of the tiny microphones used in smartphones as well. McWilliams' latest report dissects the MEMS market from every angle, looking at recent "hot" growth stock InvenSense as well as bigger players, as he identifies opportunities for investors to leverage these new developments. McWilliams' latest reports have the tech world buzzing, and they are now available via free trial subscription to Next Inning.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- InvenSense: McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to avoid InvenSense when its price soared into the $20s following its IPO.  However, more recently, he suggested buying on weakness.  Is InvenSense, which is often touted as a MEMS "pure play," still a compelling opportunity for investors looking to play the huge growth in next-generation consumer electronics? What does the rest of the MEMS market look like, and who are the biggest players and what is driving their revenue? Does McWilliams' earnings and valuation analysis suggest that InvenSense is poised for big gains? Should investors be concerned about patent litigation involving competitor STMicro?  Should investors continue to hold InvenSense or take profits?

-- STMicro and TI: STMicro was the first company in the world to report a billion dollars in MEMS sales.  To do this, it took the market lead from TI and passed Hewlett-Packard too.  STMicro also filed a sweeping lawsuit against pure-play MEMS supplier, InvenSense.  Is STMicro positioned to continue its extraordinary growth curve, or are there now forces that might unseat its dominance in the market? 

-- Avago and TriQuint: Avago and TriQuint supply a very specialized MEMS technology to support 4G cellular services known as LTE.  There are new and highly specialized requirements that smartphone companies must support to deliver LTE (4G) services in many markets where the channel spacing is close.  This technology is called Bulk Acoustic Wave filtering and it is based on very special implementations of MEMS technology that many investors overlook.  With only two primary players in this market, margins are high and revenue growth is forecasted to be significant. 

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 316% since its inception versus 88% for the S&P 500.
