NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Linear Technology, Analog Devices, National Semiconductor, Maxim Integrated Products, and Fairchild Semiconductor

PRINCETON, N.J., July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has updated outlooks for Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC), Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI), National Semiconductor (NYSE: NSM), Maxim Integrated Products (Nasdaq: MXIM), and Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS).

Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams has leveraged a decades-long career as a semiconductor industry insider to deliver in-depth insights and winning stock selections for his newsletter subscribers. McWilliams' Next Inning model portfolio has posted huge gains, returning 315% since its inception in 2002, and he has been picking more potential big winners for 2011.

McWilliams has been right on target this year with his predictions on the direction of the market. In mid-May McWilliams advised his readers that we would be in for about five or six weeks of souring market conditions, but following that, McWilliams predicted that tech stock prices would rally as Wall Street looked towards what McWilliams stated weeks earlier would be a stronger second half. One look at the charts is all it takes to see his timing was again impeccable.

But wait, tech stock prices declined again after only a couple of good weeks; is that a part of the vision? Is it time to buy or are we in for another brutal selloff like we saw in late May and the first few weeks of June? McWilliams addresses those concerns and presents detailed data, identifying which stocks will do well and which investors should avoid going forward. To help Next Inning readers make better informed decisions, Next Inning has begun publishing its highly acclaimed State of Tech series, offering in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies.

In addition to the State of Tech series, trial subscribers will also receive real-time trade alerts, daily updates, and McWilliams' in depth earnings previews.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- What is unique about Linear Tech's strategy? Why is it actually good news for Linear Tech investors when the firm cedes positioning at customers like Apple and Garmin to emerging rivals entering the market? Where does McWilliams think Linear Tech will pick up new business to offset what it's walking away from in the consumer markets? Based on McWilliams' fiscal 2012 earnings forecast, what does he see as a "fair price range" for Linear Tech?

-- What sets Analog Devices apart from other companies in the analog and mixed-signal semiconductor sector? What are the five key catalysts for Analog Devices going forward? Is Analog Devices trading at a bargain price based on McWilliams' in depth valuation analysis?

-- Should National Semi investors sell now or hold until Texas Instruments completes its acquisition?

-- Has Maxim put together a strategy that will allow it to grow its business well and create a durable design base in high volume applications? Is McWilliams expecting Maxim to perform above analysts' expectations? Does McWilliams' valuation analysis suggest significant potential upside for Maxim?

-- In October, McWilliams wrote that Wall Street was failing to recognize the significant improvement Fairchild had made in its balance sheet and in its potential to grow earnings. In January of this year, McWilliams advised subscribers to capture the stock's sharp gains using an options strategy that netted an 87% gain. Is McWilliams expecting further upside? Does a valuation and balance sheet analysis suggest that Fairchild shares are undervalued at current prices?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 315% since its inception versus 45% for the S&P 500.
