PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL),
Altera (Nasdaq: ALTR), SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), Lam Research (Nasdaq: LRCX) and
Cypress Semiconductor (Nasdaq: CY).
After a series of reports that nailed the market's high and low points in
2012, Editor Paul McWilliams has published his outlook for 2013. His new State
of Tech report covers 72 technology stocks and outlines which stocks investors
will want to own and which they should avoid. The report also dives deep into
a number of exciting, emerging tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street
This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology
in 2013. Trial subscribers will receive the 126-page report, which includes 35
detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. Trial subscribers
will also receive McWilliams' earnings previews, offering in-depth coverage
ahead of key earnings reports for dozens of tech stocks.
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. To this point, no one has been more
accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple.
Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Apple was
positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split
adjusted). However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised
Next Inning readers to sell. What led McWilliams to predict Apple's decline
late in 2012 and what does he now predict for the stock in 2013? In recent
reports, McWilliams also offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness
and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Apple: Does McWilliams expect Apple to rally to $600 - or even $700 - in
the wake of its earnings report this week? Earlier this year when Apple made
its first run to the mid-$600s, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was
time to take profits and reiterated that view in the fall as Apple moved above
$700. In his new earnings preview, McWilliams reveals the real reasons why
Apple pulled back sharply from its September 2012 high, but more importantly,
McWilliams outlines his outlook for Apple in 2013. Here he shares what he
thinks Apple needs to do to gain traction against Android with its iPhone, how
he thinks Apple will fare in the expanding tablet market and specifically what
he looks for Apple to do in the TV market. This report is a "must read" for
all Apple investors and analysts.
-- Altera: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would
outperform Altera. Because Altera had been the big winner during the last two
years, this was a bold forecast that went against the grain of Wall Street
forecasts. However, McWilliams was right - Xilinx was the winner hands down
in all categories, and posted a solid profit while the price of Altera
declined for the year. Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more
attractive investment in 2013? What key trends in the programmable logic
sector are important to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams
see these trends shaping up for 2013?
-- SanDisk: In July, when SanDisk was trading at $36.48, McWilliams told
investors that SanDisk was deeply undervalued. With shares now 31% higher,
does McWilliams expect further gains for SanDisk investors? Could SanDisk
shares move above $60 in the near term? Do current dynamics in the memory
market favor SanDisk?
-- Lam Research: Is Lam Research now a more attractive investment than rival
Applied Materials? Which stock does McWilliams recommend for investors looking
to cover the semi equipment sector? What other stock in the sector does
McWilliams think investors should consider at this juncture?
-- Cypress: In his special year-end State of Tech report, McWilliams predicted
that Cypress would fall short of Q4 expectations. Two weeks later, Cypress
lowered its Q4 guidance. What weakness did McWilliams see that Wall Street
missed? Has the introduction Apple's new "Lighting" 9-pin connector posed
challenges for Cypress as an Apple supplier? After a tough 2012, is Cypress
poised for a strong rebound in 2013? What strategy does McWilliams think
Cypress will attempt to execute this year to rebound?
