Oct 28, 2013, 09:39 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Harmonic (Nasdaq: HLIT), Integrated Device Technology (Nasdaq: IDTI), PMC-Sierra (Nasdaq: PMCS), and Sanmina (Nasdaq: SANM).

Next Inning Editor Paul McWilliams has been a leading analyst covering the technology sector for over a decade. McWilliams is known for helping its readers generate strong returns, and no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple. Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). While many analysts turned negative on Apple when Steve Jobs died, McWilliams maintained his strongly bullish opinion. However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell.

In McWilliams' detailed earnings preview covering Apple, McWilliams' offers an in depth look at what investors can expect when Apple reports earnings this week, and he points out where Wall Street analysts are getting the story wrong. This is an absolute must-read report for any Apple investors thinking about holding the stock into the company's earnings report this week.

Also included in McWilliams' earnings previews this week:

-- Harmonic: Why does McWilliams believe the deployment of CCAP technology will substantially boost revenue growth potential for Harmonic?  What advantages does McWilliams think Harmonic has over its competitors in this emerging market?  How might the new Ultra-HD standard impact Harmonic's business? What other trends does McWilliams think will benefit Harmonic going forward?

-- IDT: IDT is up nearly 65% from where McWilliams suggested that Next Inning readers buy the stock last year and up 20% from where he reiterated the call following the resignation of IDT's CEO.  Does McWilliams see further upside ahead or is it time for investors to take profits? What tech sector trends have the potential to drive further upside for IDT?

-- PMC-Sierra: Should PMC-Sierra and IDT investors be excited about PMC-Sierra's acquisition of IDT's enterprise SSD business?  Why does McWilliams view this as a positive move for both companies?  Why might PMC-Sierra be well positioned to capitalize on this deal, and what price objective does McWilliams think is reasonable for investors to target? What five factors have weighed on PMC-Sierra's stock price of late? Could shares move above $10 in 2014?

-- Sanmina: In his Q3 2012 State of Tech report, McWilliams outlined a compelling bullish thesis for Sanmina, but warned readers the price would likely dip before moving higher.  Following that, the price of Sanmina fell 11% to a low of $7.58, but quickly rebounded to close the year at $11.07, where McWilliams reiterated his bullish outlook. What was Wall Street overlooking in the Sanmina equation? With the price now up roughly 126% from the Q4 2012 low, is the bullish view McWilliams outlined fully priced into the stock or does he see more upside potential during the next six to 12 months? Could shares hit the $20 mark?  What is McWilliams' exit strategy?
