PRINCETON, N.J., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has updated outlooks for Cirrus Logic (Nasdaq: CRUS), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), and Applied Micro Circuits (Nasdaq: AMCC).
Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams has leveraged a decades-long career as a semiconductor industry insider to deliver in-depth insights and winning stock selections for his newsletter subscribers. McWilliams' Next Inning model portfolio has posted huge gains, returning more than 360% since its inception in 2002, and he has been picking more potential big winners for 2011.
Despite predictions from dozens of Wall Street analysts and tech sector research firms, McWilliams was the only one to forecast Intel's earnings report correctly, with estimates that matched the chip giant's Q1 results and Q2 guidance perfectly. Along with McWilliams' Intel forecast and his bullish calls ahead of strong earnings by Apple and Qualcomm, Next Inning subscribers have access to dozens more as McWilliams publishes in depth earnings previews and coverage throughout earnings season. There are still a number of potential tech earnings winners to be covered this quarter.
Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' highly acclaimed State of Tech series, offering in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies. The full set of State of Tech reports will be published ahead of earnings season, offering specific guidance on which stocks he thinks investors should own and which should be avoided.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:
-- What are the primary challenges that lay ahead for Cirrus Logic? Should investors be concerned about Cirrus Logic's high concentration of business with Apple? How much upside can investors expect if things go right for Cirrus this year? Does the upside outweigh the potential downside? Does McWilliams think the production problems Cirrus announced recently will endanger the company's position at Apple?
-- Does McWilliams have bullish view of Microsoft based on Windows 7, Kinect, its newest mobile operating system and its expanded ecosystem strategy? Might an investment in Nokia be a better way to profit from Microsoft's mobile strategy than investing in Microsoft itself?
-- Should investors be concerned that TriQuint recently "backed away" from its relationship with Apple? Why is being an Apple supplier a "dual-edged sword?" Could the 2011 consensus estimate prove to "pitifully low," creating a significant profit opportunity for investors?
-- Is Xilinx likely to perform better than rival Altera, or will it continue to trail as it did throughout 2010? Given the surge in demand for programmable logic, does McWilliams think this is the year to split bets between the two sector leaders? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Xilinx and how much upside does it represent?
-- Does McWilliams expect Applied Micro's upcoming earnings report to beat expectations? Are analysts being too pessimistic about Applied Micro with their full-year outlooks, setting the stage for significant potential profits for investors?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 361% since its inception versus 49% for the S&P 500.
