NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Analog Devices, Fairchild Semiconductor, International Rectifier, Intersil and Linear Technology

October 6, 2009

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 6 /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 Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI), Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), International Rectifier (NYSE: IRF), Intersil (Nasdaq: ISIL) and Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC).

During the July earnings season, Editor Paul McWilliams was spot on. Not only was he the only one to predict Intel would report revenue of $8B, he laid out the details so accurately that one reader commented, “It was almost as though McWilliams wrote the script for the Intel conference call.”

With the October earnings season just around the corner, McWilliams has begun publishing his special “State of Tech” reports. In this series of reports, readers will find detailed data covering the sector leaders as well as some of the up and coming niche players, commentary about sector trends and specific calls as to which stocks McWilliams thinks readers should buy and which he thinks they should sell.

To read McWilliams’ State of Tech reports, including his special in depth Intel earnings preview that will be published October 5th, and to have full access to the Next Inning web site as well as a direct feed of McWilliams’ frequent investment ideas that have yielded a year-to-date return of 65% for the Next Inning Portfolio, please visit the following link:


McWilliams covers these topics and more in his State of Tech reports:

– Even with its recent pullback, Analog Devices is still up nearly 40% since McWilliams named it one of only two good strategic investments in the analog and mixed-signal semiconductor sector. Why does McWilliams think the stock merits consideration as a strategic investment? With the price down from its recent highs, is today a rare buying opportunity for such a high quality stock?

– Fairchild is up over 120% since being rated in McWilliams’ special December report as a good speculative investment. McWilliams advised his readers that Wall Street was radically underestimating Fairchild’s forward earnings earlier this year. Now that both the estimates and the price of Fairchild have more than doubled, does he think Wall Street finally has the story or is there still room for the stock to rally?

– International Rectifier is up nearly 65% since McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was a good place to invest speculative money. Does McWilliams think the jury is still out for the new management team? What markets does McWilliams think will be drivers for the company? What new technologies could fuel significant upside for the stock?

– Why might Intersil be an attractive acquisition target for a number of suitors? What companies are the most likely to be interested in buying Intersil? Is Intersil’s new CEO set to leverage a new business plan that could reward investors? Is there a downside cushion if he fails?

– What sets Linear Tech apart from nearly every other publicly traded semiconductor company? Why do traditional accounting rules significantly understate Linear Tech’s earnings power and what does this mean for the stock’s potential upside?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 219% since its inception versus 15% for the S&P 500.
