NI Technology Updates Outlooks for SanDisk, Celestica, Akamai, DragonWave, and Ciena

PRINCETON, N.J., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), Celestica (NYSE: CLS), Akamai (Nasdaq: AKAM), DragonWave (Nasdaq: DRWI), and Ciena (Nasdaq: CIEN).

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 is approaching the "five-bagger" level, returning nearly 400% since its inception in 2002.  

With the market now pulling back, Next Inning's call earlier this year to thin equity exposure and raise cash is looking prescient. McWilliams backed this call up by trimming positions at two of his holdings that peaked in January and February and using the proceeds to boost the cash allocation in the Next Inning model portfolio.  Next Inning free trial subscribers will have access to new buy alerts in the model portfolio as McWilliams identifies profit opportunities in the current market pause.

Many investors are rightfully worried today about the impacts of disturbances in the Middle East and Northern Africa.  McWilliams laid out his thoughts on these and other international and domestic events that are impacting the markets in his updated Strategy Review last week.  This is a must-read report for all investors.

In addition to a new strategy review, trial subscribers will also have access to McWilliams' exclusive solid state drive (SSD) report covering OCZ, SMART, STEC, and other names in this hot sector, as well as an optical networking report covering JDS Uniphase, Finisar, and other competitors in this booming segment.  Trial subscribers also gain access to the highly acclaimed State of Tech series, offering 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.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- Does recent worldwide semiconductor sales data bode well for NAND Flash supplier SanDisk?  Are supply and demand trends in the NAND Flash sector moving in a favorable direction?

-- Should investors be concerned about the recent weakness in Celestica or have the shares just been trending lower along with the broader market?  Does McWilliams have a positive view of Celestica and the EMS sector as a whole?

-- McWilliams last advised investors to consider Akamai when it was trading at about $25 in February of last year, a price from which the stock subsequently more than doubled during 2010.  With Akamai pulling back sharply in the last month, do investors now have a rare opportunity to acquire shares of this high-flying name at a bargain price?

-- Does McWilliams view Ciena shares as too expensive at current prices?  Is Finisar a better way to play the fiber optics sector than Ciena?  What is McWilliams' latest view on Finisar following its quarterly report and soft guidance?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 372% since its inception versus 46% for the S&P 500.
