Top Tech Analyst Publishes State of Tech Report, Issues Investor Updates and Revised Price Targets on 72 Companies, Including Apple, Skyworks Solutions, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Microsoft

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Skyworks Solutions (Nasdaq: SWKS), Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), Texas Instruments (Nasdaq: TXN), and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT).

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate. In March, just two days before the market peaked and began its over two-month slide, he warned Next Inning readers that stock prices were peaking and a correction was headed our way. Following this, once the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally during the July and August earnings season, and rally they did.

However, following the close on September 14, 2012, McWilliams published his most recent Strategy Review and, in that, predicted again that the markets were due for another drop ahead of the November election. This time he nailed the year-to-date high to the day. If you are a tech investor, you'll want to be sure to read what McWilliams predicts will happen next.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.

McWilliams' highly acclaimed State of Tech Report, a comprehensive guide for the Q3 2012 earnings season has just been published. This report covers 72 leading and emerging tech companies that are expected to generate nearly one trillion dollars in sales next year from twelve sectors ranging from materials and wafer fabrication to finished goods. This in depth report includes in-depth fundamental data and McWilliams' investment outlook, and will be available free of charge to all who sign up for a no-obligation free trial to Next Inning Technology Research.

McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:

-- Apple: What three points do all investors need to consider when it comes to Apple, even if they do not own shares of Apple directly? Is Apple, even at its all-time high of $705.07, still undervalued according to McWilliams' analysis? Is it realistic that Apple shares could double from here or are new factors coming into play that could weigh on Apple's stock price?

-- Skyworks: Does McWilliams believe the acquisitions Skyworks has completed during the last fourteen months will lead to improved margins and market share? What is McWilliams latest, revised price target for the stock? What RF semiconductor stocks does McWilliams like at this juncture?

-- Qualcomm: After nearly a decade of presenting Qualcomm as a "swing-trade" stock, what caused McWilliams to flip to a long-term buy and hold view early in 2010 when Qualcomm dipped into the $30s? Why did he state with total confidence last year that Qualcomm was set to break resistance at $60? After a well-timed call to hedge by selling covered calls when Qualcomm subsequently moved to the high-$60s, does McWilliams now see another upside opportunity at Qualcomm? What is Qualcomm's weighting in McWilliams' "Triple Crown" tech stock portfolio that is designed to deliver dividend yield, value and growth?

-- Texas Instruments: Following Texas Instruments' announcement that it would buy National Semi for what McWilliams wrote at the time was a substantial premium, McWilliams turned cold on TI and suggested selling at its then current price in the mid-$30s. Has he changed his mind now that the acquisition has been completed? Does McWilliams favor a strategy shift at TI that will see it move away from mobile markets? Is TI represented in McWilliams' "Triple Crown" tech stock portfolio that is designed to deliver dividend yield, value and growth?

-- Microsoft: Is Microsoft now on the right track with its Windows strategy? Is Windows 8 poised to deliver the first notable challenge to Apple's tablet dominance? Could Windows 8 find fans among corporate chief information officers who are contending with fragmented mobile platforms?
