Jul 25, 2012, 08:38 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Intersil (Nasdaq: ISIL) and Silicon Laboratories (Nasdaq: SLAB).

Editor Paul McWilliams is best known for spotting big winners long before they are recognized by Wall Street.  Nearly a decade ago, he advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted).  However, in markets like we face today, many readers appreciate his calls to sell even more.

In his special July 3rd report, "A Guide for the Q2 Earnings Season," McWilliams advised readers they should sell Advanced Micro Devices and NetList.  Since the report was published, the price of Advanced Micro has dropped over 32% and the price of NetList has dropped over 31%.  What other stocks did McWilliams suggest selling and which ones does he think investors should buy?

In his "Guide for the Q2 Earnings Season," McWilliams offers in depth data and analysis on 67 tech companies expected to report aggregate revenue in excess of $800 billion this year. The report includes McWilliams' second half outlook, full value price ranges and current investment opinions for all 67 stocks.  With this data, investors can appropriately position themselves for the July earnings season.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in 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.

McWilliams thinks his 62-page State of Tech report should be read by all tech investors and is making it, along with his special report "Triple Crown Tech Stocks," available free of charge to all who sign up for a no-obligation free trial to Next Inning Technology Research.

McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:

-- Flextronics:  What has caused McWilliams to adjust his rating on Flextronics? Has McWilliams taken a more bullish or bearish view of Flextronics? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Flextronics and how much upside does it represent from current prices? 

-- TriQuint:  Why is 2012 a huge transitional year for TriQuint? What is going on at TriQuint in 2012 that is masking its strategic progress?  Are analysts' 2013 estimates for TriQuint woefully low? Is McWilliams expecting TriQuint shares to double in the next twelve months?

-- Alcatel-Lucent: What factors have driven the price of Alcatel-Lucent to near penny stock levels?  Does McWilliams expect a reversal of any of these factors to come into play during 2012 and, if so, has Alcatel-Lucent made the right operational adjustments to leverage an improving demand environment?  Could Alcatel-Lucent shares be worth well over double what they trade for today?

-- Intersil: After big mistakes in the last few years, is Intersil's business model finally coming together? Why should investors pay particularly close attention to Intersil's cash flow?  How does its cash flow stack up to its reported earnings and why is that important?  After suggesting an exit from Intersil years ago when it was trading in the mid-$20s, does McWilliams think it is now time to accumulate shares?

-- Silicon Labs: After a transition year in 2011, is Silicon Labs now on the right track?  Does McWilliams' in depth earnings and valuation analysis suggest that Silicon Labs shares are notably undervalued right now?  After suggesting that investors exit Silicon Labs when it was trading in the $40s, does he think it's now time to buy?
