NI Technology Updates Outlooks for Finisar, eMagin, Marvell Technology Group, Amtech Systems, and Ikanos Communications

PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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), eMagin (NYSE Amex: EMAN), Marvell Technology Group (Nasdaq: MRVL), Amtech Systems (Nasdaq: ASYS), and Ikanos Communications (Nasdaq: IKAN).

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 is approaching the "five-bagger" level, returning nearly 400% since its inception in 2002.

With the market now pulling back, Next Inning's call earlier this year to thin equity exposure and raise cash is looking prescient. McWilliams backed this call up by trimming positions at two of his holdings that peaked in January and February and using the proceeds to boost the cash allocation in the Next Inning model portfolio.  Next Inning free trial subscribers will have access to new buy alerts in the model portfolio as McWilliams identifies profit opportunities in the current market pullback.

Steven Halpern, editor of The Stock Advisors report, which tracks 75 subscription newsletters and publishes the AOL Top Picks Report, had this to say about McWilliams:

"I have followed the financial newsletter industry for 28 years, reading hundreds of financial advisors. Without doubt, Paul McWilliams offers among the most in-depth, highest quality and well-reasoned research available in the marketplace. I've rarely ever seen an advisor who is as knowledgeable -- and accurate -- regarding the sectors and stocks that they follow."

In addition to a new optical networking report, trial subscribers will also have access to McWilliams' exclusive tech sector earnings previews, offering analysis of which stocks are likely to pop or drop during earnings season.  Trial subscribers also gain access to the highly acclaimed State of Tech series, offering in-depth, sector-by-sector coverage of over 65 leading tech companies and 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:

-- With Finisar pulling back by as much as 10% over the last week, do investors now have an opportunity to pick up this high-flying stock at a bargain price?  What is McWilliams' bullish thesis for Finisar, and does he expect the stock to be a long-term winner for investors today?

-- Are eMagin's unique micro-displays a promising technology likely to see growth in the coming years?  Does eMagin have a strong balance sheet that will allow it to pursue growth in its targeted markets?  Should eMagin investors be prepared for volatility ahead?

-- Should Marvell investors be concerned that the firm's technology isn't appearing in the latest round of high-profile tablets?  Why should investors pay close attention to Marvell's presence in China?

-- After Amtech peaked roughly 1,000% above his original call to buy at $2.48 in November 2008, McWilliams suggested taking some profits ahead of its earnings call on February 8th.  Since then, the price of Amtech has pulled back by 25%.  Has this slide in the stock price created a rare opportunity for investors to accumulate shares in a promising growth story?  What do investors need to know about Amtech's "deferred profit?"  What is most likely to slow Amtech's growth?

-- Where does Ikanos fit into the emerging story of fiber optics and wireless broadband initiatives?  Has Ikanos created a sustainable business model by focusing on pushing up speeds in copper-laced networks?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 365% since its inception versus 44% for the S&P 500.
