PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published in-depth earnings previews for TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), Amtech Systems (Nasdaq: ASYS), Nuance Communications (Nasdaq: NUAN), NXP Semiconductors (Nasdaq: NXPI), and Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO).
Next Inning readers leverage the insight you can only get from an industry insider. Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams was a tech industry executive for more than two decades. Not only does he know how things work from the inside and how to spot a winning business model, he also has a long and successful record of picking winning stocks. Year-to-date in 2012 these picks have driven a 25% gain for the Next Inning Model Portfolio. Since its inception in 2002, the model portfolio is up over 300%.
Next Inning trial subscribers now have a rare opportunity to gain access to McWilliams' valuable insights including his expectations for companies scheduled to report earnings this week. In total, his earnings preview report provides commentary and outlooks for 13 leading tech companies. In addition to these, trial subscribers will also receive daily commentary covering headline events in the tech sector and McWilliams' insight into how to leverage them for profit.
McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:
-- TriQuint is up 48% from where it was trading in December when McWilliams called it one of his favorite stocks for 2012. Does he see further strength ahead for TriQuint that could push shares above $10 or has it reached McWilliams' price objective? What does McWilliams see as the drivers for TriQuint in 2012 and what will it take for the company to push its gross profit margin back above 40%?
-- When McWilliams suggested Next Inning subscribers consider buying Amtech in 2008 when it was trading for only $2.48, few investors had even heard of the stock. Following this he suggested taking profits or hedging with covered calls shortly after when Amtech was peaking at $30.80. Why has revenue fallen off at Amtech so significantly? What has changed in Amtech's operating structure and why is it important for investors to understand this change? Could the firm's upcoming earnings report generate a near-term rally? Is the stock well-positioned for long-term growth?
-- Apple's Siri voice-recognition feature has raised the profile of Nuance's technology, but what is the other secret to Siri's success that is totally unrelated to Nuance but that investors need to be aware of? Is Nuance now trading at a reasonable valuation, despite its leveraged balance sheet?
-- Is NXP continuing to demonstrate leadership in the emerging near-field communications (NFC) market? What three factors drove the decline in NXP's stock price in 2011? What is McWilliams' fair value range for NXP and how much upside does it represent? What red flag in the NXP equation should investors consider ahead of its earnings report?
-- In the fall of 2010, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers there was far too much collaboration and far too little action going on at Cisco. His prediction was Cisco needed to not only refocus, but substantially restructure. Cisco subsequently saw the light and did exactly that. The question now is will Cisco disappoint as Juniper did last month or will Cisco illustrate it is taking market share from not only Juniper, but also low-cost Chinese rivals, Huawei and ZTE? In his preview, McWillliams answers that and many more important questions about Cisco's strategy. In addition, he also dissects the value of Cisco's balance sheet and provides a detailed value model that projects the value of the stock in the three- to six-month horizon.
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 307% since its inception versus 49% for the S&P 500.
