PRINCETON, N.J., July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published a new special report, previewing earnings for Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), Mellanox Technologies (Nasdaq: MLNX), Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), Skyworks Solutions (Nasdaq: SWKS) and Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX).
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 report "A Guide for the Q2 Earnings Season" that was published July 3rd, McWilliams stated clearly that readers should sell Advanced Micro Devices and OCZ Technology. On July 9th, AMD announced it would report Q2 revenue 14% below its original forecast. The price of AMD dropped over 15% following the report. The story from OCZ was even worse. After disappointing Wall Street for the second quarter in a row, its stock price dropped over 30% following McWilliams' warning. What other stocks does McWilliams think investors should sell before they report earnings?
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' latest report covers the following topics:
-- Intel: With a long record of correct predictions under his belt, what is McWilliams expecting from Intel in its upcoming quarterly report and outlook for the seasonally hot third quarter? Is Intel poised to continue to surpass expectations or have global factors limited its potential? How is the competition shaping up in the smartphone, tablet, PC and enterprise markets? Why does McWilliams say 2012 is a "traction building year for Intel" and claim Wall Street is significantly underestimating the company's growth potential for 2013? What is McWilliams' long-term outlook for Intel and what is his full value price target for Intel shares?
-- Mellanox: How important is Mellanox's recently announced InfiniBand win at Intel? Is Mellanox likely to maintain its competitive lead on Intel? Should investors consider taking profits on Mellanox's recent strength? What options strategy can Mellanox investors use to reduce downside risk and potentially collect over $75 per share in just over six months?
-- Qualcomm: After nearly a decade of presenting Qualcomm as a "swing-trade" stock, what caused McWilliams to flip to a long-term buy and hold view early in 2010 when Qualcomm dipped into the $30s? Why did he state with total confidence last year that Qualcomm was set to break resistance at $60? After a well-timed call to hedge by selling covered calls when Qualcomm subsequently moved to the high-$60s, does McWilliams now see another buying opportunity at Qualcomm?
-- Skyworks: Does McWilliams believe the acquisitions Skyworks has completed during the last fourteen months will lead to improved margins and market share? What is McWilliams latest, revised price target for the stock? What RF semiconductor stocks does McWilliams like at this juncture?
-- Xilinx: Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive investment than its rival Altera? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are important to the Xilinx story?
