Jan 07, 2010, 10:02 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Google (Nasdaq: GOOG), MEMC Electronic Materials (NYSE: WFR), STEC (Nasdaq: STEC) and ARM Holdings (Nasdaq: ARMH).

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 his special November Strategy Review, McWilliams called the ups and downs of December with uncanny accuracy and laid out his predictions for 2010. In this extensive report, McWilliams provides an in-depth forecast for a variety of tech sectors, points out what he sees as three danger periods looming in our future, and provides specific investment opinions and price targets on 37 leading tech stocks.

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:

-- McWilliams thinks the analysts covering Apple and Google are wrong in how they are viewing Google's entrance into the smartphone market. Of course, it's not unusual for McWilliams to disagree with Wall Street. What is it that McWilliams sees so differently about the growing competition between Google and Apple? What does he think the real end-game is for these two Wall Street darlings? How does he view the competitive threat cast by the new Google Nexus One phone and why does he think Google chose that specific name for its first volley into the handset market?

-- After suggesting that readers sell STEC last summer when the stock was trading in the mid-$30s, McWilliams suggested it was time to buy last November when shares were trading for only $12. Along with his buy recommendation, McWilliams provided readers with a specific exit strategy. What was his exit price target and at what price does he think short-selling pressure will return? What does McWilliams think about STEC's long-term potential?

-- After suggesting that readers sell MEMC last October when it was trading for $15.70, McWilliams reversed his stance in November once the stock dropped below $12.50 and suggested it was now time to buy. What is his exit target and what specific catalyst does he think will drive the price higher? What new risks are on the horizon?

-- The price of ARM Holdings is up more than 130% since McWilliams rated it as a buy in his special report, "Undervalued Tech Stocks for 2009." McWilliams' theory then was that smartphone growth would continue to benefit ARM and that once certain technical issues were resolved, the introduction of smartbooks would drive the price of shares even higher. What is McWilliams' exit target for ARM and why does he think the upside from here might be limited even for the company that has a virtual lock on the smartphone and smartbook markets?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 234% since its inception versus 26% for the S&P 500.
