NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Advanced Micro Devices, Altera, Xilinx, Micron and SanDisk

Sep 26, 2011, 10:02 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), Altera (Nasdaq: ALTR), Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), Micron (Nasdaq: MU), and SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK).  

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 238% since its inception in 2002, nearly ten times the return for the S&P 500 during that period, and he has been picking more potential big winners for 2011.

McWilliams has been right on target this year with his predictions on the direction of the market.  From the spring sell-off to the June rebound to the slump in July and massive selloff that followed, McWilliams has kept Next Inning readers one step ahead of the market.

An example of a recent call for Next Inning trial subscribers: On August 8th, McWilliams suggested buying Nvidia at its then current sub-$12 price.  His claim was that the stock had sold off too much and that Nvidia was poised to grow earnings by at least 20% to 30% in 2012.  On September 7th, Nvidia announced it would in fact hit McWilliams' target.  Nvidia closed on September 7th up more than 20% from McWilliams suggestion to buy and is holding steady there even though the broader market has since dropped.

Trial subscribers will receive McWilliams' earnings previews and his highly acclaimed State of Tech reports that offer in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies and specific guidance on which stocks he thinks investors should own and which should be avoided.  These reports, as well as McWilliams' regular commentary and real-time trade alerts, are available for free to trial subscribers.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- Is AMD facing long-term competitive threats that investors need to be aware of? How is China important to the AMD story? What has AMD done to give it better branding power in China than it has in Western countries?  How does McWilliams expect AMD's new CEO to leverage this power?  What does McWilliams think AMD has to do to push its share price above $10?  Does he think there is a reasonable chance AMD will hit that target during the next three to six months?

-- In what ways has Wall Street totally missed the programmable logic paradigm and underestimated the growth potential of sector leaders Altera and Xilinx? Would either of these companies be good candidates to buy Cavium Networks? Does McWilliams continue to believe investors should consider one or both of these stocks as core strategic investments?  Which of the two does McWilliams favor?

-- Does recent data on DRAM pricing suggest that Micron is poised to report better-than-expected results? Might new research and development efforts help Micron develop durable differentiation in the enterprise class DRAM market? Are there reasons to stay cautious on Micron?

-- What sets NAND Flash memory apart from other memory types, and does this suggest that NAND specialist SanDisk will not be as susceptible to the profitability swings that have weighed on other memory manufacturers? Could SanDisk move above $50 in the near term?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 238% since its inception versus 25% for the S&P 500.
