PRINCETON, N.J., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Cree (Nasdaq: CREE), First Solar (Nasdaq: FSLR), Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), Micron (Nasdaq: MU) and SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK).
Editor Paul McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry, and has earned a reputation for his skill at communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.
A recent example is McWilliams' March 24th warning that we would soon see the massive first quarter rally come to an end and, with that, tech stock prices fall. The NASDAQ hit its 2012 peak only three days after McWilliams' warning and, since then, the first quarter gains have evaporated. McWilliams' latest special report, available free to trial subscribers, offers deep analysis of the most recent worldwide semiconductor sales data.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- Cree: Does the data suggest that there has been a strong uptick in demand for LEDs used in backlight applications as well as LEDs used in lighting applications? Does McWilliams continue to believe Cree is substantially oversold at current price?
-- First Solar: During 2009 and early 2010, McWilliams suggested several swing trades and one long/short pairing in the solar sector. However, after writing that investors should sell First Solar in April 2010 at its then current price of $130, McWilliams has maintained an avoid posture on the sector. McWilliams last reiterated his negative view of First Solar when it was trading at $27.55 on March 6, 2012. With First Solar now trading for only $12.17 it appears to that the bad news may be fairly well baked into the price, but should investors take this as an opportunity to buy, or could more bad news be ahead?
-- Intel: Does McWilliams see strong trends for Intel continuing through 2012 and into 2013? Is McWilliams expecting a strong Q2 for Intel or should investors stay cautious?
-- Micron: In April, McWilliams warned that if we saw the correction he forecasted a week earlier the price of Micron could dip into the $5s. The correction arrived as predicted, and Micron closed trading on June 4th at $5.39. Does this new lower price offer investors a buying opportunity in Micron?
-- SanDisk: Does McWilliams expect strong revenue for NAND Flash memory over the next year? Could SanDisk shares move above $60 before the year is out? Does the data suggest the demand for NAND Flash was better than expected during April?
