Jan 19, 2010, 09:34 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC), PMC-Sierra (Nasdaq: PMCS) and Tower Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TSEM).

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:

-- Do data points from early earnings reports in the tech sector point to a potential upside for Apple?  Could Apple trade above $220 heading into its upcoming earnings report?

-- Would McWilliams consider adding shares of Flextronics if weakness in the share price persists?  Could there be an upside if Lenovo chooses Flextronics to replace the production capacity it's moving out of India?

-- Prior to Linear Tech's recent earnings report, McWilliams predicted that results would come in ahead of Wall Street's expectations, but that the potential for upside appreciation was limited at best.  Now that Linear Tech significantly outperformed expectations, what is McWilliams' revised outlook and fair value range for the stock?  How much upside do shares have from here?

-- Why does McWilliams believe that recent analyst downgrades of PMC-Sierra have been unwarranted?  Is the stock now trading at a bargain price as a result?  On a sector by sector basis, what does McWilliams expect from PMC-Sierra this quarter?

-- Why might tiny Tower Semiconductor be poised to double or more from here?  What are the potential drivers for the stock this year?  How does Tower's valuation compare to that of its larger peers?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 242% since its inception versus 27% for the S&P 500.
