PRINCETON, N.J., July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL),
Texas Instruments (Nasdaq: TXN), Sanmina-SCI (Nasdaq: SANM), EMC (NYSE: EMC)
and NXP Semiconductors (Nasdaq: NXPI).
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 30% and the price of NetList has dropped over 35%. What other
stocks did McWilliams suggest selling and which ones does he think investors
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.

investors and is making it, along with his special report "Triple Crown Tech

McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:
-- Apple: McWilliams first suggested considering Apple as a good speculative
investment in June 2003 at the split adjusted price of $9.85. As Apple moved
above the $600 level for the first time, McWilliams advised Next Inning
readers to consider diversifying by thinning exposure to Apple and locking in
the 6,000% profit. Should investors consider trimming stakes further now that
Apple is again trading above $600 or are there better places to allocate for
growth? Does McWilliams expect it's possible for the price of Apple to double
from here? What does McWilliams believe will prove to be Apples "real"
competition going forward?
-- NXP Semiconductors: McWilliams was amazed last year when Wall Street
pushed the price of NXP into the mid-$30s based mostly on its first mover
status with Near Field Communications (NFC) chips. As the price of NXP
peaked, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to take profits and to avoid
the stock at those levels. However, when the price dropped to the mid-teens
in the fall of 2011, he wrote it was time to consider NXP a buy. What is
behind the recent volatility in shares of NXP? Does McWilliams now expect
that NXP shares could move back to $30?
-- Texas Instruments: Following Texas Instruments' announcement that it would
buy National Semi for what McWilliams wrote at the time was a substantial
premium, McWilliams turned cold on TI and suggested selling at its then
current price in the mid-$30s. Has he changed his mind now that the
acquisition has been completed? Does McWilliams expect TI to do well if the
-- Sanmina-SCI: McWilliams was highly critical of Sanmina in early 2011. In
his January 2011 State of Tech report covering the EMS sector, he termed
management's comments as "over the top" and suggested selling the stock when
it was trading in the mid-teens. When the price of Sanmina finally bottomed
in the fall of 2011, McWilliams suggested it was time to buy again, but stated
clearly investors should set an exit price of $12 to $14. Sanmina hit
McWilliams' exit target. With Sanmina shares now sharply below that level,
does McWilliams see the stock as poised for a rebound? Could the stock move
above $12 in the near term?
-- EMC: McWilliams suggested that Next Inning readers buy EMC when it was
trading in the low $20s ahead of its pre-announced calendar Q2 results. Why
did he say demand for EMC storage systems would hold strong while demand for
many other enterprise products has weakened? What is McWilliams' only concern
about EMC? Does McWilliams think EMC would be better off instituting a
dividend policy than maintaining its 80% ownership of VMware? Why does
McWilliams say it's important for investors to view EMC's value from both a
traditional perspective as well as a deconstructed perspective? What does
McWilliams say is the right way to deconstruct EMC's valuation model?
