PRINCETON, N.J., April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has updated outlooks for Entropic Communications (Nasdaq: ENTR), MIPS Technologies (Nasdaq: MIPS), Sanmina-SCI (Nasdaq: SANM), Altera (Nasdaq: ALTR), and Broadcom (Nasdaq: BRCM).
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 nearly 330% 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:
-- Is Entropic really threatened by Broadcom in the MoCA market? What unique points of leverage does Broadcom really have in this equation? Despite Broadcom's apparent threat, does McWilliams think there is room to speculate in a near-term Entropic rally or is the stock just a value trap and shortsellers' paradise?
--While MIPS shares have remained under pressure since January, what are the four strong undercurrents that have come into play for the stock? Has McWilliams adjusted his bullish thesis for MIPS? Does McWilliams' earnings forecast and fair-value range suggest that MIPS could see upside of as much as 70%?
--McWilliams warned Next Inning readers to sell Sanmina early in 2011 when the stock was trading in the very high teens. What did he see then that tipped him off that it was time to vacate the stock? Should investors be concerned about the recent sudden management change at Sanmina? What does Sanmina need to convey with its upcoming earnings report to show investors that it's on the right track? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Sanmina and how much upside does it represent from current prices?
-- In his July 2010 coverage of Altera, McWilliams noted that the then current price for ALTR of $24.51 represented an unrealistically low valuation. We've since seen the stock price rise by nearly 90%. Does McWilliams believe that Altera is still undervalued, even after these big gains? How would he play the lucrative programmable logic sector?
-- What is the big question mark that still remains for Broadcom? Why might Broadcom want to consider acquiring graphics chip-maker Nvidia? Is there reason to believe Broadcom will see another upside from its mobile customers? What does McWilliams see as a fair value target range for Broadcom?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 350% since its inception versus 47% for the S&P 500.
