NI Technology Previews Earnings for STEC, Amtech Systems, Towerstream, Diodes, and Integrated Device Technology

PRINCETON, N.J., May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has updated outlooks for STEC (Nasdaq: STEC), Amtech Systems (Nasdaq: ASYS), Towerstream (Nasdaq: TWER), Diodes (Nasdaq: DIOD), and Integrated Device Technology (Nasdaq: IDTI).  

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 331% since its inception in 2002, and he has been picking more potential big winners for 2011.  

Despite predictions from dozens of Wall Street analysts and tech sector research firms, McWilliams was the only one to forecast Intel's earnings report correctly, with estimates that matched the chip giant's Q1 results and Q2 guidance perfectly.  Along with McWilliams' Intel forecast and his bullish calls ahead of strong earnings by Apple and Qualcomm, Next Inning subscribers have access to dozens more as McWilliams publishes in depth earnings previews and coverage throughout earnings season.  There are still a number of potential tech earnings winners to be covered this quarter.

Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' highly acclaimed State of Tech series, offering in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies.  The full set of State of Tech reports will be published ahead of earnings season, offering specific guidance on which stocks he thinks investors should own and which should be avoided.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- When McWilliams suggested that investors consider buying STEC in September 2008, the stock was trading in single digits.  He reversed his opinion in August 2009, and suggested it was time to take some profits. STEC was trading at about $33.50 when that alert was published.  Following that, he called three successful swing trades.  Does McWilliams think now is the time to own or be out of STEC?

-- 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 expect the company to see a surge in earnings in 2011?  Is the stock well-positioned for long-term growth?

-- What is McWilliams' three-part investment thesis for Towerstream, and does it suggest that the stock is poised to reward investors with significant gains?  What makes Towerstream's risk and reward profile particularly attractive today?  Does McWilliams see Towerstream as a candidate to double or more?

-- Using Diodes, McWilliams provided Next Inning readers with a wonderful lesson in balance sheet assessment and, along with it, an opportunity to make over a 500% return inside one year.  Following this he called several successful swing trades.  Does McWilliams think investors should be in or out of Diodes when it reports its earnings this week?

-- After producing lackluster results for 2010, McWilliams encouraged readers to give IDT a look as a potential winner for 2011.  While IDT still has a lot to prove, McWilliams wrote in January it was positioned well to be a winner in 2011.  Year-to-date, IDT is up nearly four times more than the Nasdaq.  What does McWilliams mean when he says "IDT has a lot to prove"? Does McWilliams view a potential post-earnings pullback in IDT as an opportunity for investors to accumulate shares at an attractive price?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 331% since its inception versus 48% for the S&P 500.
