Jan 28, 2010, 09:53 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), PMC-Sierra (Nasdaq: PMCS), Maxim Integrated Products (Nasdaq: MXIM) and Cavium Networks (Nasdaq: CAVM).

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:

-- Now that the Apple iPad has finally been released, how does it match up to McWilliams' predictions about the device?  Does the iPad spell the end of e-reader devices like Amazon's Kindle?  What questions about the iPad still need to be answered for investors?

-- The price of SanDisk has moved up more than 263% since McWilliams suggested it as a good speculative investment in his December 2008 monthly semiconductor sales report.  Now that the stock has hit McWilliams original target price of $30, does he see a further upside or does he think it's best to take profits ahead of the earnings report?  Why might SanDisk avoid the typical supply and demand challenges that have hurt memory stocks in the past?

-- On a sector by sector basis, what does McWilliams expect from PMC-Sierra this quarter?  Is Wall Street too pessimistic about PMC-Sierra, giving investors an opportunity to get in at a bargain price?

-- Does McWilliams expect Maxim to exceed expectations when it reports its quarterly numbers today?  Are there competitive threats to Maxim looming in the longer term?  Based on a detailed valuation analysis, what is McWilliams' target price for the stock and how much upside does he expect for Maxim investors?

-- What trends are behind the expectations of continued growth for Cavium? Is Cavium's lofty valuation warranted based on these trends or does McWilliams think investors should consider moving funds to NetLogic?
