Oct 18, 2011, 08:00 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Cirrus Logic (Nasdaq: CRUS), Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), Altera (Nasdaq: ALTR), and Cypress Semiconductor (Nasdaq: CY).  

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 247% since its inception in 2002, nearly eight 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: Ahead of its introduction, McWilliams correctly predicted literally every new feature included in the iPhone 4S except the Siri personal assistant.  Immediately following the unveiling of the 4S, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it would be a huge success and reiterated his bullish position on Apple in spite of the fact that most pundits were putting it down.  As it turns out, iPhone 4S sales have broken all previous iPhone sales records, and Apple shares are up 11% since McWilliams made his comments.

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 Cirrus likely to continue to have parts in Apple phones and tablets for years to come or do broader technology trends suggest that Cirrus' Apple opportunity may soon end? McWilliams first recommended that investors consider the stock last fall when it dropped below $13. With shares now still trading well above that level, should investors consider taking profits?

-- What are the two challenges facing Flextronics today? Is Flextronics well-positioned to meet its profitability goals by early 2012? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Flextronics and how much upside does it represent from current prices?

-- Does McWilliams see long-term growth on the horizon for programmable logic leaders Altera and Xilinx? What is the primary competitive threat facing these two companies, and what is the strategy for dealing with the threat? Does McWilliams favor Altera or Xilinx ahead of their upcoming earnings reports or should investors consider splitting their allocation between the two?

-- Did Texas Instruments overpay for National Semi? What does Texas Instruments gain from the acquisition? How much will the acquisition contribute to TI's bottom line in 2012? How will it affect the TI balance sheet? Should investors consider adding to TI positions, or should they steer clear until there's more visibility on how this merger will play out?

-- Has Cypress returned to a leading position in touch screen controller technology after previously falling behind rivals? What is the "red flag" that investors in Cypress need to be aware of?  What is McWilliams' fair value range for the stock and how much upside does it represent?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 247% since its inception versus 32% for the S&P 500.
