PRINCETON, N.J., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology
Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused
on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Microsoft (Nasdaq:
MSFT), Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), Cypress Semiconductor (Nasdaq: CY),
Lattice Semiconductor (Nasdaq: LSCC), and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing
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 at 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 63% year to date), Micron (up 56% year to
date), Marvell (up 41% year to date), PMC Sierra (up 26% year to date) and
SanDisk (up 32% year to date). Stocks he suggested avoiding/selling include
Fusion-io (down 36% 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:
-- Microsoft: Even though seemingly the entire market was aware that soft PC
sales numbers were coming, Wall Street waited until last week to downgrade
Microsoft. Are the analysts looking at Microsoft the right way? Is McWilliams
expecting demand for Microsoft products to pick up notably in the second half
of 2013? What are his thoughts about Windows 8 and what is an easy way for
Windows 8 users to get the function of their "start button" back? How does
McWilliams think Microsoft can benefit from harmonizing its operating system
across the PC, tablet and smartphone platforms? Why might Microsoft be in an
even better position than Apple when it comes to this strategy?
-- AMD: Since McWilliams advised AMD investors to sell in early July when AMD
was trading just over $6, AMD shares have fallen dramatically. Are shares now
trading at a bargain price, or should investors continue to steer clear? Could
AMD make a bold move in 2013 that would drive notable upside for the stock?
What options does McWilliams see for AMD in 2013?
-- Cypress: Has the introduction of 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? Could Cypress
shares hit $15 in the near term or does McWilliams think investors should
unload shares of Cypress ahead of its quarterly report?
-- Lattice: What major mistakes did Lattice make in 2012? Are there concerns
that Lattice has lost positioning in the telecom market?
-- TSMC: In his "Paradigm Paper" titled "Trends Favor Semiconductor
Fabrication Companies," McWilliams strongly encouraged Next Inning readers to
buy TSMC in December 2008 when the stock was trading for only
$7.50.Including dividends, the investment has returned over $160%.With
GlobalFoundries, Samsung and Intel presenting increasing competition for TSMC,
is it time for investors to take profits ahead of TSMC's earnings
report?Beyond these competitive threats, what fundamental aspect of the TSMC
story does McWilliams say poses a risk for investors that Wall Street is
ignoring?Does the data McWilliams presents suggest that TSMC will reduce its
dividend payment going forward?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 238%
since its inception versus 74% for the S&P 500.
