NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Intel, Microchip, Atmel, SanDisk and Micron

August 31, 2010

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ — Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), Microchip (Nasdaq: MCHP), Atmel (Nasdaq: ATML), SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK) and Micron (Nasdaq: MU).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in identifying winners and losers during this challenging and historic period for the markets. After calling the rally that started in March 2009 to the day and providing Next Inning readers with buy recommendations that in some cases returned in excess of 400%, he advised readers on May 3, 2010 that the markets were heading for a correction. By the end of the day, the correction started.

In his June 7(th) Strategy Review, McWilliams advised readers we would see stocks rally in July, but that the rally would be followed by another selloff in August. As we know now, both events materialized as predicted. On August 30(th), Next Inning published McWilliams’ Fall Strategy Review that outlines what he expects from the markets during the coming three months and naming five stocks he thinks will hit new highs before the close of the year. Investors are invited to read McWilliams’ market insights with no obligation during a 21-day risk-free trial.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

– Intel has maintained a pace of one acquisition per week for the last three weeks. What is the company’s strategy? Is it a defensive strategy aimed at spreading its wings beyond what analysts claim is a dying PC market or is it an offensive strategy that will lead to a long-term trend of growing revenue and profits? The market clearly has priced Intel’s stock for the former, but if it is the latter, this might prove to be a golden opportunity to buy stock in the world’s largest semiconductor company.

– McWilliams has nailed virtually every turn in the market since the winter of 2008. In his Fall Strategy Review he outlines what he expects for the next three months and names five stocks he thinks will post new highs yet this year. What are those five stocks and why is he so confident?

– The headlines and Intel’s lowered guidance tells us PC sales are slack in the U.S. and Western Europe. Does this spell bad news for the entire semiconductor sector or are there other companies that are still seeing booming demand? What are the weak spots outside the PC sector and what sectors are continuing to see strong and growing demand?

– Are there indications that Microchip may report an upside for its September quarter and why might that be especially good news for MIPS? The price of MIPS has nearly tripled since McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to buy. Does he think now is the time to add shares or take some profits?

– The price of Atmel is up nearly 60% since McWilliams advised readers it was poised for a turnaround in the microcontroller and touch-screen markets. Does he think it’s time to take some profits or that the company is just starting to build meaningful traction?

– McWilliams first called a sell on SanDisk when it was trading above $46 and reiterated that sell rating on August 18(th) when the stock was still holding in the mid-$40s. Does he think now is the time to jump back in for another ride or is this a stock investors should avoid for now?

– McWilliams advised investors it was time to close long positions in Micron in June when the stock was trading at $9.24. Now that the price has dropped to the mid-$6s does he think it’s time to jump back in for another ride up? What data points does McWilliams sight to support his opinion?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 229% since its inception versus 16% for the S&P 500.
