NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Hewlett-Packard, Oracle, TriQuint Semiconductor, Qualcomm and MIPS Technologies

Sep 23, 2011, 09:26 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL), TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), and MIPS Technologies (Nasdaq: MIPS).  

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 232% since its inception in 2002, nearly ten 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: On August 8th, McWilliams suggested buying Nvidia at its then current sub-$12 price.  His claim was that the stock had sold off too much and that Nvidia was poised to grow earnings by at least 20% to 30% in 2012.  On September 7th, Nvidia announced it would in fact hit McWilliams' target.  Nvidia closed on September 7th up more than 20% from McWilliams suggestion to buy and is holding steady there even though the broader market has since dropped.

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:

-- When Hewlett-Packard's board announced it had terminated CEO Mark Hurd without any knowledge of who would replace him, McWilliams suggested selling the stock at its then price of $43.50. He reiterated the call in May when the stock was still trading above $40.  Shares are now down -48% from his first call to sell. When Oracle announced it hired Hurd, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was time to buy the stock at its then current price of $24.50. With HP now canning Hurd's replacement and bringing in eBay founder, Meg Whitman, is it time to buy back into the stock or is Oracle still the better investment?

-- Early this week, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers TriQuint would likely report Q3 results at or below the low end of its guidance. He also stated TriQuint would report gross margins below expectations for several quarters going forward.  Does this mean the business model at TriQuint is broken and investors should abandon ship or is this simply an air-pocket that investors should have expected?  Does McWilliams think there are reasons to use this drop in price as an opportunity to accumulate shares on the cheap?

-- Is Qualcomm the likely big winner in the high end smartphone market? Which more speculative investment should investors consider pairing with Qualcomm in a bet on the smartphone market?

-- Does the combination of Broadcom and NetLogic – both MIPS licensees – have any impact on MIPS' revenue stream? Could the deal create potential upside for MIPS?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 232% since its inception versus 24% for the S&P 500.
