Jan 20, 2010, 09:59 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), Skyworks Solutions (Nasdaq: SWKS), Emulex (NYSE: ELX), Microsemi (Nasdaq: MSCC) and Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS).

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%.

-- Now that Skyworks has pushed beyond McWilliams' target price of $14 that he set early in 2009, has he raised his target for the stock?  Is Wall Street underestimating Skyworks' earning power?  Do rumors from Asia suggest favorable trends for Skyworks this year?  What other companies in the RF sector does McWilliams think will do well in 2010?

-- Does McWilliams expect the marketplace to embrace Emulex's "intriguing" pay-as-you-go strategy?  How well does McWilliams think it will play against the competition?

-- Why might Microsemi be an underappreciated play on the body scanning technology now in focus at airports worldwide following December's attempted terrorist attack?  What does McWilliams see as a fair value price range for Microsemi?

-- What might Wall Street be missing in its analysis of Fairchild? According to McWilliams' in depth valuation analysis, are Fairchild shares undervalued heading into the company's upcoming earnings report?
