NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Research in Motion, Marvell Technology Group, Qualcomm, Applied Materials and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing

PRINCETON, N.J., June 29 /PRNewswire/ --Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment service has updated outlooks for Research in Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM), Marvell Technology Group (Nasdaq: MRVL), Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in identifying winners and losers during this challenging and historic period for the markets. After logging a very successful 2009 that included suggesting his readers buy a number of stocks that subsequently posted gains of 100% to 400%, he advised readers on May 3rd that the markets were heading for a correction.  As many investors are painfully aware, McWilliams was right again.

Now that the major indexes have fallen more than the ten percent required to classify the drop as a "correction," McWilliams has outlined what he views as the real risks and advised Next Inning readers how he thinks things will play out during the balance of 2010.

Trial subscribers will receive the Next Inning Summer Strategy Review, and freshly published and 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 detailed earnings previews, are available for free to trial subscribers.

In addition, subscribers will have access to McWilliams' daily commentary and actionable alerts.  To take advantage of this offer and receive these reports for free, please visit the following link:

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- Why is there still so much pressure on RIM stock even after the company reported earnings that were mostly in line with analysts' estimates?  Should investors consider buying RIM now that the price has fallen so significantly or are there reasons to continue avoiding the stock?

-- Is Wall Street right to sell off Marvell based on the competitive threats facing its major customer RIM and worries that its business in the hard disk drive market will be displaced by the anticipated move to solid state Flash-based drives?  What is it about the Marvell story that extends far beyond these obvious issues that Wall Street is missing?

-- Is the news that Lenovo is delaying its new Skylight smartbook and IdeaPad U1 Hybrid bad news for Qualcomm?  What design and product changes will Lenovo be making during the delay?  What unit volume is China Telecom forecasting for handsets built using the Qualcomm CDMA standard this year and how many have they shipped so far?  Does this point to an upside for Qualcomm?

-- TSMC and UMC, the two largest contract semiconductor fabricators in the world, have stated that they will both spend more this year on capital equipment than they had planned on doing just a few months ago. What does this tell us about their view of the demand environment and have these elevated spending plans been appropriately factored into the stock price of Applied Materials, the largest capital equipment supplier to the semiconductor industry?  McWilliams has provided the short answers to these and other questions about the fabrication sector and will follow up during the next ten days with his "State of Tech" report that covers the sector in detail.
