NI Technology Updates Outlooks for STEC, Hewlett-Packard, Analog Devices and Semtech

August 17, 2009

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ — Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for STEC (Nasdaq: STEC), Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI) and Semtech (Nasdaq: SMTC).

Editor Paul McWilliams advised readers that we would see a rally start the week of March 9th and subsequently provided suggestions as to exactly what stocks he thought would produce the best results. The rally started the very next day and a number of his suggested buys have doubled or better.

Prior to the July earnings season, McWilliams predicted the month would be unusually strong for tech stocks with Intel leading off earnings season with a huge upside surprise. As one reader commented, “it was almost as though McWilliams wrote the script for the Intel conference call.” However, following the record July rally, in a series of reports, he has outlined the specific macroeconomic and political forces he believes will weigh on the market during the short-term and what signs will trigger the next rally.

Next Inning is also keeping its readers informed about emerging trends in the tech industry, including a special report covering the new “always on” portable computing trend and what companies are likely to benefit. Coming soon, there will be a special report covering the tech companies most likely to benefit from emerging “green tech” industries. To help you position your portfolio for the next rally, Next Inning has extended its free 21-day no risk trial offer.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

– After STEC’s big move higher, does McWilliams see further upside from here? Are there competitors poised to erase the “first-mover” advantage solid state drive (SSD) markets that fueled STEC’s big gains? What factor has changed in the STEC value chain and how might that affect STEC’s business model?

– McWilliams let Next Inning subscribers know about the boost that Chinese stimulus would provide to Analog Devices and other tech names back in March and suggested buying the stock ahead of its May earnings report when it was trading in the $19s. Now that Wall Street has finally caught on and pushed the price of Analog Devices up 43% off its May low, has the stock reached fair value? What should investors be expecting from Analog Devices’ upcoming earnings report?

– Based on a valuation analysis, is Hewlett-Packard trading at a bargain price even after a 25% gain since McWilliams last called the stock a strategic buy?

– Is Semtech trading below fair value? Could Semtech move above $20 following its upcoming earnings report?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 197% since its inception versus 9% for the S&P 500.
