PRINCETON, N.J., March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), ARM Holdings (Nasdaq: ARMH), Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), Mellanox Technologies (Nasdaq: MLNX), and Rackspace Hosting (NYSE: RAX).
Next Inning readers leverage the insight you can only get from an industry insider. Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams began his career in the tech industry in the mid-1970s and was selling Intel devices in 1976, long before Intel was inside anything a consumer might recognize.
McWilliams has spent his life in technology and is a nerd by admission. Fortunately for Next Inning readers, he also loves to write about technology trends in ways that makes it easy for an average reader to understand the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.
Readers frequently rave about McWilliams' quarterly State of Tech report that covers the microprocessor and computing sectors. Obviously, by virtue of its dominance in the microprocessor sector, Intel is the focus topic of this 15-page report.

McWilliams always has strong opinions when it comes to Intel and history shows they have not always been favorable. In May 2008 when Intel was trading in the mid-$20s, McWilliams predicted the stock would drop to $12 before the year was out and suggested it was time to cut exposure to the stock. However, once Intel's stock bottomed just pennies above his target, McWilliams flipped to a bullish view and has since predicted Intel's growth with uncanny accuracy.
In his new State of Tech report, McWilliams covers what is really happening in all of Intel's strategic markets ranging from the emergence of the next-generation "Ultrabooks" to smartphones and tablets. A special feature in this report explores what is changing in the hot data center market and how both AMD and Intel are substantially expanding their strategies far beyond their traditional focus on server microprocessors. Even semiconductor industry executives say this is a must read report – not just for Intel investors, but for anyone investing in technology.
McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:
-- With 10 straight quarters of correct predictions under his belt, what is McWilliams expecting from Intel in 2012? Is Intel poised to continue to surpass expectations or have global factors limited its potential?
-- Does the impending release of Microsoft's Windows 8 open up new opportunities for ARM Holdings to break into Intel's traditional PC markets or will it in fact broaden Intel's reach into the hot tablet sector at the expense of ARM?
-- What does McWilliams make of AMD's recent announcement that it plans to buy SeaMicro, a highly innovative data center solutions provider that has so far used only Intel chips in its designs? Why didn't Intel step in and buy SeaMicro instead? Which well-known semiconductor company is the biggest loser as Intel and AMD broaden their data center strategies?
-- Is Mellanox facing new competition from Intel thanks to a recent acquisition by the semiconductor giant? Might Mellanox be an acquisition target, and who would be the buyer? What might Intel do to differentiate its InfiniBand strategy from what Mellanox offers?
-- What differentiates the data center requirements for companies like Facebook from cloud-based strategies like those being leveraged by Rackspace and why is it important for investors to fully understand these differences?
