Leading Tech Analyst Updates Outlooks for Corning, Applied Materials, Xilinx, Linear Technology and Analog Devices

August 28, 2012

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Corning (NYSE: GLW), Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT), Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC), and Analog Devices (Nasdaq: ADI).

So far, the roadmap McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate. In March, just two days before the market peaked and began its over two-month slide, he warned Next Inning readers that stock prices were peaking and a correction was headed our way. Following this, once the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally during the July and August earnings season, and rally they did.

With tech earnings season winding down with the final big reports from Dell and HP, Next Inning readers are anxiously awaiting McWilliams’ next Strategy Review in which he’ll reevaluate his outlook for the balance of the second half and into early 2013.

This week, McWilliams has updated his highly acclaimed “Triple Crown” tech stock portfolio that is specifically designed to deliver higher dividend yield, a lower price-to-earnings ratio multiple and higher growth potential than the S&P500. Since the start of the July earnings season, McWilliams Triple Crown portfolio has returned nearly 60% more profits than the S&P 500. Trial subscribers will receive free access to these reports as well as the entire contents of the Next Inning archives.

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.

McWilliams’ recent reports cover the following topics and more:

– Corning: Ahead of Corning’s recent earnings report, McWilliams advised investors to expect weak second-half forecasts. Now that shares have pulled back on this news, is Corning trading at a bargain price, suggesting a rare buying opportunity for investors? What led McWilliams to include Corning in his “Triple Crown” tech stock portfolio and what percentage of that portfolio does he think investors should consider dedicating to Corning?

– Applied Materials: McWilliams advised investors to expect Applied Material to forecast lower near-term revenue ahead of its recent earnings report, but to accumulate shares on weakness. Surprising some investors, the price of Applied Materials dipped briefly, but ended up closing the day higher even after its revenue guidance was far below the consensus estimate. What it about the Applied Materials’ story that has kept investors interested? Does the stock meet McWilliams’ requirements to hold in his Triple Crown Tech Stock portfolio? Are there any other companies in this sector that McWilliams likes at this juncture?

– Xilinx: McWilliams says weakness in the wireline telecom sector will continue to weigh on Xilinx’ results in the near-term. However, he says the good news is that another key market sector will begin to pick up the slack during the second half. What sector does McWilliams see picking up soon and what other suppliers are likely to benefit? What is Xilinx’s weighting in McWilliams’ “Triple Crown” tech stock portfolio that is designed to deliver dividend yield, value and growth? Did Xilinx’s competitor Altera make the cut?

– Linear Technology: Does Linear Tech stand to benefit more than rival firms from growing semiconductor content in the automotive sector? What other sector does McWilliams see delivering an upside for Linear Tech going forward? What is different today about Linear Tech’s core business model when compared to what we’ve seen from the company over the last decade? What led McWilliams to select Linear Tech as one of the highest weighted stocks in his “Triple Crown” tech stock portfolio?

– Analog Devices: What telecom trends are poised to benefit Analog Devices as investors look ahead to 2013? What is Analog Devices’ weighting in McWilliams’ “Triple Crown” tech stock portfolio that is designed to deliver dividend yield, value and growth?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 240% since its inception versus 56% for the S&P 500.
