Apr 16, 2013, 09:33 ET from Indie Research Advisors, LLC

PRINCETON, N.J., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Google (Nasdaq: GOOG), Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC), SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), and Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS).

During 2012, Next Inning editor, Paul McWilliams predicted both the spring and fall corrections as well as the rally that started in November and carried through the first quarter of 2013.  On the day the November rally started, he advised readers it would lift the NASDAQ by as much as 18% by the end of March 2013.  As we know now, that is exactly what happened. 

To keep Next Inning readers ahead of the curve, Next Inning published McWilliams highly acclaimed State of Tech report last week.  This report outlines McWilliams' outlook for the second quarter and provides readers with deep insight into 71 of the world's leading tech companies.  McWilliams also shares his opinions as to which of these companies investors should buy and which should be avoided.

Trial subscribers will receive the 167-page report, which includes 35 detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology in 2013.

Already in 2013, McWilliams suggested buying several stocks ahead of quarterly earnings reports including Cree (up 55% year to date), Micron (up 51% year to date), Marvell (up 40% year to date), PMC Sierra (up 26% year to date) and SanDisk (up 29% year to date). Stocks he suggested avoiding/selling include Fusion-io (down 38% year to date) and Netlist (down 15% year to date). McWilliams' new State of Tech report outlines which stocks investors will want to own and which they should avoid as the market hits new all-time highs.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Intel: No one knows Intel better than McWilliams.  That's a bold statement, but one you will agree with when you read his in depth earnings preview and the extensive coverage included in his State of Tech report.  With market pundits finally promoting positive views of Intel that are based on events McWilliams forecasted would take place more than a year ago, are Intel shares poised to ride a wave of new enthusiasm higher? Is Intel now well-positioned to be a leader in emerging mobile computing markets? What is McWilliams' short-term outlook for Intel?  What does he expect from Intel as we move through the second half of 2013 and on into 2014?

-- Google: In February 2012 McWilliams uncovered evidence that strongly suggested that Google would go into the content delivery business and compete with cable and telecom companies.  Months later, Google confirmed that this was exactly what it was doing, in addition to its Gigabit fiber project that is now expanding to Austin, Texas.  With this data, McWilliams confidently advised Next Inning subscribers to buy Google when its price dipped below $625 following its April 2012 earnings call and suggested that investors who were saving money for the then upcoming Facebook IPO instead to use that to buy Google.  Google is up 26% from that entry point and the value of Facebook has fallen roughly 35% from its open price.  Is McWilliams expecting further upside from Google? What does Google have that even Apple can't replicate?

-- Linear Technology: Just one day before Linear Tech hit its 52-week low in mid-2012; McWilliams "strongly" recommended buying the stock at its then current price of $28.75.  McWilliams rarely makes "strong" suggestions like this so why did he make an exception in this case?  Has he changed his opinion now that Linear Tech has reached his price objective or are there now reasons to raise the target?  What has changed at Linear Tech that McWilliams saw months before it was discovered by Wall Street analysts that led McWilliams to classify this stock a "strategic investment?"

-- SanDisk: In July, when SanDisk was trading at $36.48, McWilliams told investors that SanDisk was deeply undervalued. With shares now 52% higher, does McWilliams expect further gains for SanDisk investors? Could SanDisk shares move above $70 in the near term? Do current dynamics in the memory market favor SanDisk? What is different about the demand elasticity for NAND Flash memory when compared to DRAM that makes NAND Flash a much better place to invest today?

-- Fairchild: After calling three successful short-term swing trades during the last year, does McWilliams think it is time to pick up shares of Fairchild ahead of earnings, or does he think it should be avoided here?  What changes could Fairchild make to unlock more value for investors?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 232% since its inception versus 71% for the S&P 500.
