Jan 04, 2010, 11:37 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP), Atmel (Nasdaq: ATML) and Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in predicting the ebb and flow of the markets during the last 12 months. He not only called the relief rally that started in November 2008 and nailed the March bottom to the day, he also predicted the catalysts that would fuel what has been one of the most significant recovery rallies in NASDAQ history.

In his special November Strategy Review, McWilliams called the ups and downs of December with uncanny accuracy and laid out his predictions for 2010. In this extensive report, McWilliams provides an in-depth forecast for a variety of tech sectors, points out what he sees as three danger periods looming in our future, and provides specific investment opinions and price targets on 37 leading tech stocks.

Long-term Next Inning readers know this is an important report. In his special report published in late 2008, he helped position readers early with big winners like Apple, Blue Coat Systems, Diode Inc., Flextronics, 3Com and Sun Microsystems, noting clearly the latter two were acquisition candidates. Prices for these stocks have since advanced between 135% and 250%.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- While Wall Street analysts were embarrassingly wrong in both their Q2 and Q3 Intel forecasts, McWilliams hit the numbers within a rounding error. As he promised last month, he has provided readers with an updated, detailed forecast for Intel in his monthly semiconductor report that was published today. This report covers a total of 10 unique semiconductor sectors providing both a broader outlook and company-specific commentary.

-- As 2008 was coming to a close, McWilliams strongly encouraged Next Inning readers to buy SanDisk when it was trading in single digits. In those reports he stated clearly that we would see a surge in demand for NAND Flash and that SanDisk would trade between $25 and $30 within a year. Now that SanDisk has hit McWilliams' target price does he think it's time to take profits or hold on for more? Does McWilliams foresee new revenue records in store for NAND Flash suppliers?

-- Microcontroller revenue has picked up nicely during the last two months. In anticipation of this, McWilliams suggested that readers execute a very specific "bookend" strategy to cover the sector in his November 2(nd) report on worldwide semiconductor sales. Why does he think pairing Atmel and Microchip makes sense? What are his price targets for these stocks?

-- Based on his forecast for strong PC sales during Q4, McWilliams advised readers to scoop up shares of analog semiconductor companies that supply the critical power control chips found in every PC. While the data suggests this trend is solidly intact, it also appears now there has been stronger than usual demand for analog parts from the industrial sector. In his update on analog that was published this morning, which analog companies does McWilliams think are destined to report above expectations for calendar Q4?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 231% since its inception versus 25% for the S&P 500.
