NI Technology Research Identifies Targets for Tech Sector Consolidation

June 22, 2009

PRINCETON, N.J., June 22 /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 NetApp (Nasdaq: NTAP), EMC (NYSE: EMC), Data Domain (Nasdaq: DDUP), 3PAR (NYSE: PAR), Isilon Systems (Nasdaq: ISLN), Quantum (NYSE: QTM), FalconStor Software (Nasdaq: FALC), Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC) and SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK).

Editor Paul McWilliams has helped his subscribers generate huge returns on undervalued tech stocks in 2009. Out of the 80 stocks highlighted in his Undervalued Tech Stocks reports, 21 have produced returns in excess of 70% year to date. All of these were ranked as either good “strategic” or “speculative” buys. The average return for all stocks ranked as either “speculative” or “strategic” buys was 40.7%, better than twice the return of stocks he thought readers should avoid.

McWilliams now turns his attention to consolidation activity in the tech sector. With several deals announced in the last few weeks and other major tech companies actively seeking acquisitions, McWilliams identifies potential winners, including companies that could be acquired at significant premiums.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his most recent report:

– Why are both NetApp and EMC battling for Data Domain? What is particularly valuable about Data Domain’s data deduplication technology?

– What other companies have data deduplication technology similar to that of Data Domain and thus may be the target of larger companies looking to strengthen their positions in this sector?

– Could Isilon and 3PAR fill a niche at a larger player in the storage space?

– Why has Quantum not moved higher in sympathy with Data Domain? What factors will determine Quantum’s appeal to a potential acquirer?

– Why might FalconStor be an “easy fit” for any of the leading storage and deduplication players looking for an acquisition?

– Is Symantec likely to be an acquirer or a target of a larger firm?

– Is activity in the enterprise storage space set to create a more favorable balance of supply and demand for SanDisk?
