Jan 27, 2010, 10:01 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), Celestica (NYSE: CLS), Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), Intersil (Nasdaq: ISIL) and Cypress Semiconductor (Nasdaq: CY).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in predicting the ebb and flow of the markets during the last 12 months.  He not only called the relief rally that started in November 2008 and nailed the March bottom to the day, he also predicted the catalysts that would fuel what has been one of the most significant recovery rallies in NASDAQ history.

In a new special report, "10 Tech Trends for 2010," McWilliams lays out his predictions for 2010 covering important stories from cloud computing to virtualization to data centers and solid state drives.  In this extensive report, McWilliams provides an in-depth forecast for a variety of tech sectors and provides specific investment opinions and price targets on leading tech stocks.  This valuable report is available for free to trial subscribers.

Long-term Next Inning readers know this is an important report.  In his special report published in late 2008, he helped position readers early with big winners like Apple, Blue Coat Systems, Diode Inc., Flextronics, 3Com and Sun Microsystems, noting clearly the latter two were acquisition candidates.  Prices for these stocks have since advanced between 135% and 250%.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- In spite of its recent pullback, Flextronics is up over 350% since McWilliams enthusiastically added shares to the Next Inning portfolio in 2008.  McWilliams explained then why he thought Wall Street was wrong in its risk assessment of Flextronics and, in his more recent reports, why he thinks The Street is wrong today.  What does he see as the company's strategic focus and why does he think it sets Flextronics apart from its competitors in the EMS sector?  What does he view as Flextronics' current fair value and what is his price target for 2010?

-- What is it that makes Benchmark and Celestica stand out from other EMS companies?  Why does he think Benchmark or Celestica are ideal stocks to pair with Flextronics?

-- What data points lead McWilliams to believe that Qualcomm is seeing "surprisingly" strong demand carrying over into Q1?  What new Apple design wins does McWilliams think we'll hear about this week?  What Apple tablet feature might be a big upside surprise for Qualcomm?  What is McWilliams' mid-2010 price target for Qualcomm?

-- Do trends suggest Intersil is performing above expectations?  What acquisition strategy might Intersil pursue to strengthen its positioning in key markets?  Might Intersil also be a good acquisition candidate and, if so, which semiconductor companies should be interested?

-- Cypress is up 131% since McWilliams called it a good speculative investment.  What is the one red flag McWilliams sees for Cypress?  Given McWilliams' expectations for Cypress' upcoming earnings report, is there room for investors to speculate ahead of the announcement?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 217% since its inception versus 21% for the S&P 500.
