Oct 29, 2010, 09:53 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Cree (Nasdaq: CREE), Cirrus (Nasdaq: CRUS), Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT), Lattice Semiconductor (Nasdaq: LSCC) and Tower Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TSEM).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in identifying winners and losers during this challenging and historic period for the markets. After calling the rally that started in March 2009 to the day and providing Next Inning readers with buy recommendations that in some cases returned in excess of 400%, he advised readers on May 3, 2010 that the markets were heading for a correction.  By the end of the day, the correction started.

In his June 7th Strategy Review, McWilliams advised readers we would see stocks rally in July, but that the rally would be followed by another selloff in August. As we know now, both events materialized as predicted.  On August 30th, Next Inning published McWilliams' Fall Strategy Review that outlines what he expects from the markets during the coming three months and naming five stocks he thinks will hit new highs before the close of the year.  Investors are invited to read McWilliams' market insights with no obligation during a 21-day risk-free trial.

Trial subscribers will receive the Next Inning Fall Strategy Review and 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 detailed earnings previews, are available for free to trial subscribers.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- McWilliams, who advised Next Inning readers to buy Cree in early 2009 when it was mired in the mid-teens, didn't join in the hysteria when the stock raced up to the $80s. Now he thinks Wall Street has reacted too negatively, pushing the stock to an attractive valuation. What is Wall Street totally missing in the big picture with Cree and why is the LCD backlight market the wrong place for investors to focus their attention? What are McWilliams' expectations for Cree and what has he assigned as an estimated fair value for the stock?  

-- Is there a reason to own Cirrus outside its business with Apple? Why can being tied to Apple be a dual-edged sword for a company like Cirrus?

-- Why does McWilliams think Applied Materials' earnings were better than the company presented in its earnings release? Was the company's decision to restructure ESS a wise decision? What does he think is a fair value range for the stock?  

-- Following McWilliams' call for a turnaround at Lattice last year, the stock has jumped over 80% thus far in 2010. After a late summer sell-off, can the stock surge to a new 52-week high?  What two wildcards do Lattice investors need to be aware of?

-- The price of Tower Semiconductor's stock has soared approximately 400% since McWilliams suggested buying it last summer.  Does McWilliams think it is time to take profits or is there more upside ahead? What should investors be aware of when evaluating Tower Semi's value based on Wall Street earnings estimates and the way the company reports its earnings?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 285% since its inception versus 25% for the S&P 500.
