PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), Marvell Technology Group (Nasdaq: MRVL), Broadcom (Nasdaq: BRCM), EZchip Semiconductor (Nasdaq: EZCH), and NetLogic Microsystems (Nasdaq: NETL).  

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 230% since its inception in 2002, over nine 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: After suggesting readers sell Micron last March at $11.50, McWilliams has maintained a negative view of the stock.  In his special State of Tech report published September 25th when Micron was trading at $6.43, McWilliams wrote that it ranked high on the list of stocks that were too risky to hold through a quarterly earnings call, and added "I think it's best at this juncture to stay on the side." Micron shares have moved lower by 22% since then.

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 five factors will continue to work in Qualcomm's favor going forward? What fairly unique complication do investors need to consider when looking at Qualcomm's balance sheet? Following a dip from its highs earlier in the year, is Qualcomm now trading at an attractive price?

-- On July 17, McWilliams wrote that Broadcom's best course of action was to acquire either NetLogic or Cavium. About six weeks later, Broadcom announced it would acquire NetLogic for $50 per share. Will the planned acquisition of NetLogic resolve the two structural weaknesses in Broadcom's business model? Why do Broadcom investors need to take a close look at the company's stock-based compensation policies?

-- Investors who bought NetLogic when McWilliams called the stock a good strategic investment in December 2008 will exit with a profit of over 400% upon completion of the Broadcom acquisition. Should investors consider putting those profits into Cavium?  What formula would McWilliams use to time a transition?

-- McWilliams says EZchip is one of the few small-cap tech stocks that merits consideration as a "strategic" investment.  Is EZchip well positioned to continue its strong growth trajectory? Could macroeconomic issues lead to near-term interruptions in EZchip's growth? At what price should investors aggressively add to positions in EZchip? Does McWilliams' in depth valuation analysis suggest that EZchip shares could be worth over $60?

-- On August 9th, McWilliams wrote that at its then current price of $11.98, Marvell was "way over-sold," citing balance sheet value and growth potential in the emerging Chinese smartphone market that he predicted would push Marvell's price up significantly once Wall Street caught on. Marvell shares have moved higher by 21% since then. How should Marvell investors interpret news that Apple added a few lines of code to its developer tool to provide support for Marvell's new quad-core Armada XP processor? What five potential scenarios are in play here? Is Marvell poised for more upside?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 230% since its inception versus 25% for the S&P 500.
