Sep 13, 2011, 08:00 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for NetLogic Microsystems (Nasdaq: NETL), Broadcom (Nasdaq: BRCM), EZchip Semiconductor (Nasdaq: EZCH), Cavium Networks (Nasdaq: MRVL), 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 235% since its inception in 2002, 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 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.

Trial subscribers will receive McWilliams' highly acclaimed earnings previews and his quarterly State of Tech series, which offers in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies, as well as his daily commentary that covers more than 100 of the hottest names in tech.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- In his special Q2 State of Tech report covering companies like Broadcom, Cavium, EZchip and NetLogic, McWilliams wrote, "I think Broadcom needs to consider moving more forcefully into the network processor/knowledge-based processor markets where smaller companies like EZchip, Cavium, and NetLogic are making strong moves." Separately, McWilliams rated NetLogic as a good strategic investment with a price target range extending to almost $51.  He was also very specific in his recommendation that readers buy NetLogic in preference to Cavium.  Now that it's clear that Broadcom agrees with McWilliams' thinking, should NetLogic investors hold out for a better offer, or should they take profits and look for new opportunities?

-- Next Inning readers have flooded McWilliams with questions about how to manage their position in NetLogic stock and call options.  As is always the case, McWilliams has been quick with answers to questions like: Will the NetLogic/Broadcom deal increase competition for EZchip and Cavium?  Is Cavium a likely acquisition candidate now and, if so, are the headlines right that the most likely buyers are Texas Instrument or Intel?  Are there ways NetLogic stockholders can use covered call options to optimize profits and still protect the downside risk of the deal falling through?  Should investors who hold long positions in call options react differently than investors holding long positions in NetLogic's common stock?  What does McWilliams plan to do with the shares of NetLogic he holds in his personal account?  Does the big premium Broadcom is paying for NetLogic suggest that these or other tech stocks are trading far below where they should even in today's market?

-- How might Broadcom's acquisition of NetLogic impact MIPS?  Does McWilliams see any risks for MIPS due to its long-standing relationship with both companies, or is it more likely it will see an upside over its long-standing rival, ARM Holdings?

-- Other topics McWilliams' addressed Monday include the move by Switzerland to tie its local currency to the Euro and, of course, the troubles centered in Greece that are dragging down the value of the Euro and how they might impact regional or even international liquidity.

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 235% since its inception versus 27% for the S&P 500.
