Top Tech Analyst Issues Newly Updated Outlooks on NXP Semiconductors, EZchip Semiconductor, DragonWave, Fusion-IO and Netlist
PRINCETON, N.J., July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published a new special report designed to help investors prepare for earnings season. This report covers 67 tech stocks including NXP Semiconductors (Nasdaq: NXPI), EZchip Semiconductor (Nasdaq: EZCH), DragonWave (Nasdaq: DRWI), Fusion-IO (NYSE: FIO) and Netlist (Nasdaq: NLST).
Editor Paul McWilliams is best known for spotting big winners long before they are recognized by Wall Street. Nearly a decade ago, he advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). However, in markets like we face today, many readers appreciate his calls to sell even more.
In his special report "A Guide for the Q2 Earnings Season" that was published July 3rd, McWilliams stated clearly that readers should sell Advanced Micro Devices and OCZ Technology. On July 9th, AMD announced it would report Q2 revenue 14% below its original forecast. The price of AMD dropped over 15% following the report. The story from OCZ was even worse. After disappointing Wall Street for the second quarter in a row, its stock price dropped over 30% following McWilliams' warning.
In his "Guide for the Q2 Earnings Season", McWilliams offers in depth data and analysis on 67 tech companies expected to report aggregate revenue in excess of $800 billion this year. The report includes McWilliams' second half outlook, full value price ranges and current investment opinions for all 67 stocks. With this data, investors can appropriately position themselves for the July earnings season.
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 thinks his 62-page State of Tech report should be read by all tech investors and is making it, along with his special report "Triple Crown Tech Stocks," available free of charge to all who sign up for a no-obligation free trial to Next Inning Technology Research.

McWilliams' latest report covers the following topics:
-- NXP Semiconductors: McWilliams was amazed last year when Wall Street pushed the price of NXP into the mid-$30s based mostly on its first mover status with Near Field Communications (NFC) chips. As the price of NXP peaked, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to take profits and to avoid the stock at those levels. However, when the price dropped to the mid-teens in the fall of 2011, he wrote it was time to consider NXP a buy. What is behind the recent volatility in shares of NXP? Does McWilliams now expect that NXP shares could move back to $30?
-- EZchip: Should investors be concerned that EZchip's CEO has filed a Form 144 to register shares held in a margin account associated with his 10b5-1 trading plan? Does EZchip's CEO continue to maintain significant exposure to the stock? Does McWilliams think EZchip has done all that it should do to communicate its CEO's insider activities? Has there been any change in McWilliams outlook or price targets for EZchip?
-- DragonWave: What is McWilliams' updated view of DragonWave based on its recent earnings report? Following his participation in the quarterly earnings call, McWilliams spoke at length with DragonWave's top management. What did he learn from these conversations and what material change does he believe DragonWave will implement in its future quarterly reports? Does McWilliams think DragonWave will be a good speculative investment that investors should consider buying at the current price level?
-- Fusion-IO and Netlist: In McWilliams' extensive "State of Tech" report that was published last week to help readers prepare for the July earnings season, he clearly advised readers to sell or avoid OCZ Technology and Netlist. Since that report was published, the price of OCZ has dropped over 32% and the price of Netlist is down 24%. With Fusion-IO selling today for less than half the price he suggested selling the stock at last year, does McWilliams now think it is due for a rebound or that investors should continue to avoid it even in the teens? You'll find opinions on these and 67 other stocks included in McWilliams special State of Tech report.
