NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Finisar, Advanced Micro Devices, EZchip, Marvell Technology Group and PMC-Sierra

PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), EZchip (Nasdaq: EZCH), Marvell Technology Group (Nasdaq: MRVL) and PMC-Sierra (Nasdaq: PMCS).

Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in identifying winners and losers during this challenging and historic period for the markets. After calling the rally that started in March 2009 to the day and providing Next Inning readers with buy recommendations that in some cases returned in excess of 400%, he advised readers on May 3, 2010 that the markets were heading for a correction. By the end of the day, the correction started.

In his June 7th Strategy Review, McWilliams advised readers we would see stocks rally in July, but that the rally would be followed by another selloff in August. As we know now, both events materialized as predicted. On August 30th, Next Inning published McWilliams' Fall Strategy Review that outlines what he expects from the markets during the coming three months and naming five stocks he thinks will hit new highs before the close of the year. Investors are invited to read McWilliams' market insights with no obligation during a 21-day risk-free trial.

As recently as last August, Finisar dipped into low double digits, but McWilliams took it in stride and simply stated it was a good time to add shares. During the last four weeks, however, Finisar has come under attack by the Wall Street bears on three separate occasions; the most recent being yesterday due to Cisco's gloomy guidance. McWilliams warned his readers before the open this would happen and stated without caveat that Cisco's problems wouldn't translate to problems at Finisar - in other words, Wall Street would again be wrong. Finisar confirmed this after the close Thursday in a press release that notably increased its guidance for its fiscal Q2. Based on this new data, what is McWilliams' revised fair value range for Finisar and how much upside does it represent from current prices? What are the four factors that are driving the Finisar engine? Does McWilliams think these trends are at risk or bound to improve over time? When AMD was trading in the low $7s in early October, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to expect it to make a brief run into the $8s. Does McWilliams think that marked the ideal exit point, or is AMD just now starting to build traction? What does he see as a possible upside for the company in Q1? Why might AMD continue to improve? What longer-term trends in processor markets do AMD investors need to be aware of? Following Cisco's very disappointing guidance, big questions loom for investors in companies that supply the networking leader as well. We know now that McWilliams was right to advise Next Inning readers to buy Finisar on weakness yesterday, but what does he think about some of the other companies that rank Cisco as one of their largest customers? How should investors view the near-term fortunes for Advanced Micro Systems, Cavium, EZchip, Marvell, NetLogic and PMC-Sierra given Cisco's bleak outlook for the January-ending quarter? What Cisco product classes showed strong growth and what suppliers participate in these products? What exciting new consumer product has McWilliams confirmed as using a key part from Marvell? What is his volume forecast for this one big design? Does he think this design alone could produce an upside for Marvell? What other industry events have been spotted by McWilliams that he believes are meaningful for Marvell? Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 307% since its inception versus 34% for the S&P 500.
