Oct 26, 2011, 08:00 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Intersil (Nasdaq: ISIL), Applied Micro Circuits (Nasdaq: AMCC), Benchmark Electronics (NYSE: BHE), Harmonic (Nasdaq: HLIT), 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 264% since its inception in 2002, nearly seven 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: For the ninth straight quarter, McWilliams was within a rounding error with his forecast of Intel's quarterly results, while Wall Street missed again by a mile. Not only have McWilliams' numbers been spot on, in his quarterly State of Tech series he has described in great detail exactly what has driven Intel's Wall Street-beating success and why he thinks the trend will continue.

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:

-- What big mistakes did Intersil make in the last couple of years?  Has recent M&A activity in the tech space made Intersil more attractive or less attractive as an acquisition candidate?  Is Intersil in the early stages of a strong turnaround story?

-- Has the Applied Micro turnaround story been derailed or just stalled temporarily?  With Applied Micro in the middle of a business model transition, are the near-term risks for the stock above average?  If the growth story builds traction in 2012, what is a reasonable price target for the stock?

-- How is the historic flooding in Thailand impacting Benchmark?  Which stock in the contract manufacturing sector would McWilliams recommend pairing with Benchmark? What does McWilliams see as an estimated fair value target for Benchmark?

-- What weighed on Harmonic's results in Q2?  Does McWilliams forecast a turnaround for Harmonic when it reports its Q3 results?  What emerging market trend in the U.S. does McWilliams think will drive new business for Harmonic during the coming quarters?  What is McWilliams' outlook for Harmonic and does he think the stock has the potential to double during the next three to six months?

-- With MIPS under pressure from a hedge fund that holds a large stake in the company, what are the three paths MIPS can take right now? Do projections suggest MIPS could move back into a high single-digit price range?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 264% since its inception versus 39% for the S&P 500.
