PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 27, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Benchmark Electronics (NYSE: BHE), Celestica (NYSE: CLS), Sanmina-SCI (Nasdaq: SANM), Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL), and Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in identifying winners and losers during this challenging and historic period for the markets. McWilliams called the rally that started in March 2009 and provided Next Inning readers with buy recommendations that in some cases returned in excess of 400%.  2010 has been a banner year for Next Inning readers.  Not only has McWilliams model portfolio nearly tripled the performance of broad indexes, his top picks earned him a first place finish in both the Forbes and AOL Finance 2010 stock picking contests reserved for newsletter writers.

Trial subscribers will get an exclusive behind the scenes look at the ten stocks that made his final cut for the 2011 contests.  In a special report, McWilliams shares his thoughts on all ten stocks as well as his 2011 forecasts.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- Following an impressive turnaround for the company, what unique company-specific risk does McWilliams think Celestica investors should monitor going forward?  Does McWilliams' balance-sheet and fair-value analysis suggest that Celestica is trading at a bargain price?

-- Why does McWilliams think Wall Street should value Benchmark's balance sheet at $14.16 per fully diluted share versus the classic net cash value of $6.16?  What are the four critical variables in play for Benchmark? What does he see as a "fair-value" target for Benchmark?

-- The price of Sanmina has moved up 401% since McWilliams suggested it was a good stock for speculative investors to buy in the spring of 2009. What has driven the turnaround story at Sanmina?  What elements of this turnaround story make McWilliams "uncomfortable?" Does McWilliams see further gains for Sanmina investors going forward?

-- McWilliams advised readers to buy Flextronics in November 2008 when it dipped to $1.50; it has since advanced more than 170%.  Why has Flextronics and the EMS sector in general struggled relative to the NASDAQ in 2010?  What are the two main challenges facing Flextronics?  Why does McWilliams view Flextronics as a "strategic" investment?

-- McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to consider buying the stock last week ahead of its strong earnings report.  As we know now, Jabil easily topped Wall Street estimates.  What does McWilliams like about Jabil stock that Wall Street analysts tend to miss?  Does McWilliams' fair-value range for Jabil suggest there's further upside in store for Jabil investors?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 368% since its inception versus 38% for the S&P 500.
