NI Technology Previews Earnings for Wave Systems, Amtech Systems, Cree, Diodes, and FalconStor Software

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Wave Systems (Nasdaq: WAVX), Amtech Systems (Nasdaq: ASYS), Cree (Nasdaq: CREE), Diodes (Nasdaq: DIOD) and FalconStor Software (Nasdaq: FALC).  

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 256% 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.  From the spring sell-off to the June rebound to the slump in July and August, McWilliams has stayed one step ahead of the markets with timely reports that have allowed Next Inning subscribers to properly allocate their investments and hedge against risk in a volatile atmosphere.  As McWilliams predicted prior to the passage of the budget bill in Congress, a sell-off in the wake of the deal has come to pass.  In addition, according to McWilliams, there are specific catalysts investors need to watch for to time the next inflection point.

With investors extremely uncertain about the direction of the market, Next Inning has just published an extensive strategy review advising investors on the best strategy for the current market turmoil.  In addition, Next Inning subscribers will receive McWilliams' highly acclaimed earnings previews and his State of Tech series, offering in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies.

Trial subscribers will also receive real-time trade alerts, daily updates, and frequent, new investing ideas.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- Does McWilliams see Wave Systems as a candidate to be a massive winner, with the potential to reward investors many times over, or is Wave's upside limited by competitive factors and the intricacies of the markets in which it operates?  How does Google fit into the cloud security sector and how will it leverage the Trusted Platform Modules that are in every Cloudbook?

-- When McWilliams suggested Next Inning subscribers consider buying Amtech in 2008 when it was trading for only $2.48, few investors had ever heard of the stock.  Following this he suggested taking profits or hedging with covered calls when Amtech was peaking at $28.61.  This represented over 1,000% profit in only 15 months for readers who jumped into Amtech in 2008 when McWilliams pointed out it was trading for nearly half its cash value. What's next for Amtech?  Does McWilliams agree with the huge earnings growth some analysts are modeling for 2012?  Is the stock well-positioned for long-term growth?

-- What seven near-term factors are weighing on Cree shares?  Are these factors likely to persist? Why does Cree continue to struggle when virtually everyone agrees that demand for LED lighting is growing and will continue to grow?  Is Cree positioned to overcome the competition that is flooding the sector?  

-- A year ago, McWilliams advised investors that if Diodes could actually be acquired for the then current price of $14.90 there would be a line of suitors at the door - in other words, the stock was a screaming buy. Nine months later, in May 2011, Diodes had moved to $32.89, and McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to lock in profits.  With Diodes now trading for under $20, should investors be considering Diodes shares for another run higher?  Could shares move up 50% in the next six months?

-- What four factors make FalconStor a risky play?  Could FalconStor be an acquisition target with a potential premium valuing it 50% to 100% over current prices?  Which mega-company in particular does McWilliams think may buy FalconStor and why?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 256% since its inception versus 32% for the S&P 500.
