February 4, 2010

PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 4 /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 Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI), Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP), Alvarion (Nasdaq: ALVR), OmniVision Technologies (Nasdaq: OVTI) and Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in predicting the ebb and flow of the markets during the last 12 months. He not only called the relief rally that started in November 2008 and nailed the March bottom to the day, he also predicted the catalysts that would fuel what has been one of the most significant recovery rallies in NASDAQ history.

In a new special report, “10 Tech Trends for 2010,” McWilliams lays out his predictions for 2010 covering important stories from cloud computing to virtualization to data centers and solid state drives. In this extensive report, McWilliams provides an in-depth forecast for a variety of tech sectors and provides specific investment opinions and price targets on leading tech stocks. This valuable report is available for free to trial subscribers.

Long-term Next Inning readers know this is an important report. In his special report published in late 2008, he helped position readers early with big winners like Apple, Blue Coat Systems, Diodes Incorporated, Flextronics, 3Com and Sun Microsystems, noting clearly the latter two were acquisition candidates. Prices for these stocks have since advanced between 135% and 250%.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

– The price of Power Integrations’ stock is up 65% since McWilliams suggested buying it in December 2008. What changes has the company made in its product strategy that makes this stock more of a “swing for the fences” investment than it was a couple of years ago? In McWilliams’ value analysis, what does he see as a fair price range? Does McWilliams believe the current consensus estimates for Power Integrations are too low?

– After advising readers of a pickup in microcontroller sales in Q3, McWilliams advised readers to consider Microchip. The trend materialized in a notable 14% upside for Microchip earnings. Does McWilliams believe the trend continued through Q4? What does McWilliams think about the deal Microchip has struck to buy Silicon Storage Technology? What is McWilliams’ target price for the stock and how much upside does it represent?

– What strategy has McWilliams used very successfully to profit from range-bound Alvarion? Should investors hedge or thin positions in Alvarion based on the stock’s recent action or should they hold out for more gains?

– In December 2008 McWilliams carefully explained to Next Inning readers why Wall Street was wrong to sell off Diodes Incorporated. Not only were analysts wrong in their view of the temporary adjustments Diodes was forced to make to its balance sheet, but they were also wrong in how they viewed the aggregate demand for Diodes’ products. After Diodes peaked 363% above McWilliams’ call to buy, does he think Diodes is poised to reward investors further?

– In late 2008, McWilliams suggested that Next Inning readers buy OmniVision at its then current price in the mid-$5s. His reasoning was that the strong balance sheet and a surge in smartphone demand during 2009 would lead to a possible triple. Following this, but months before the news was public, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that OmniVision had won the coveted image sensor for the new iPhone scheduled for release later that year. When the tear-down reports confirmed the design the price of OmniVision soared. With rumors that the new iPhone due out in 2010 will use an OmniVision sensor and forecasts suggesting sales for the iPhone could double from what they were in 2009, does McWilliams think it will be another good year for OmniVision stockholders?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 223% since its inception versus 22% for the S&P 500.
