NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Cree, Anadigics, Lattice Semiconductor, Plum Creek Timber, and Advanced Micro Devices

Mar 11, 2011, 08:40 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Cree (Nasdaq: CREE), Anadigics (Nasdaq: ANAD), Lattice Semiconductor (Nasdaq: LSCC), Plum Creek Timber (NYSE: PCL), and Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD).

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 is approaching the "five-bagger" level, returning more than 350% since its inception in 2002.  

With the market now pulling back, Next Inning's call earlier this year to thin equity exposure and raise cash is looking prescient. McWilliams backed this call up by trimming positions at two of his holdings that peaked in January and February and using the proceeds to boost the cash allocation in the Next Inning model portfolio.  Next Inning free trial subscribers will have access to new buy alerts in the model portfolio as McWilliams identifies profit opportunities in the current market pause.

Many investors are rightfully worried today about the impacts of disturbances in the Middle East and Northern Africa.  McWilliams laid out his thoughts on these and other international and domestic events that are impacting the markets in his updated Strategy Review last week.  This is a must-read report for all investors.

In addition to a new strategy review, trial subscribers will also have access to McWilliams' exclusive solid state drive (SSD) report covering OCZ, SMART, STEC, and other names in this hot sector, as well as an optical networking report covering JDS Uniphase, Finisar, and other competitors in this booming segment.  Trial subscribers also gain access to the highly acclaimed State of Tech series, offering 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.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- Have signs of slowing infrastructure efforts in China been weighing on Cree?  Is Cree facing competitive challenges from China?  Does a valuation analysis suggest that after the recent pullback by Cree, shares are trading at a bargain price?

-- Why have Anadigics shares pulled back even more than the broader market during the recent downturn?  How should investors in high-beta stocks manage risks in this volatile, uncertain market?

-- What is unique about Plum Creek's business model, allowing it to perform well even during market downturns?  Why might Plum Creek be a strong play as a hedge against possible inflation?

-- Should investors be concerned about inventory levels at Lattice Semi?  Might slowing in China pose challenges for Lattice?  Will Lattice's design positioning with Apple offset any potential downside facing Lattice?

-- In its recent mid-quarter update, Texas Instruments stated that outside the PC sector it was pretty much business as usual for the demand patterns it is seeing so for during Q1.  However, it was noted that Intel's chip recall temporarily slowed PC sales.  With this in mind, why does McWilliams think it actually might be a better quarter for AMD and Intel than Texas Instruments might have led us to believe?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 355% since its inception versus 43% for the S&P 500.
