NI Technology Updates Outlooks for FormFactor, Towerstream, Finisar, JDS Uniphase and Applied Materials

PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (, an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for FormFactor (Nasdaq: FORM), Towerstream (Nasdaq: TWER), Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), JDS Uniphase (Nasdaq: JDSU), and Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT). 

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 has a history of identifying small-cap tech stocks that are likely to bounce back from periods of market turmoil, rewarding investors by doubling or more in a matter of months.

In a special report, McWilliams explains to readers they don't have to bet on the continued dominance of Apple or even the resurgence Research in Motion's BlackBerry to make money in the smartphone industry; all they have to do is know who supplies the high-value components used inside every single smartphone.  With decades of experience in the semiconductor industry and a worldwide network of field contacts, McWilliams knows those secrets.

Next Inning trial subscribers now have a rare opportunity as McWilliams has identified four stocks that he sees as his big bounce candidates for 2012. In a special report, McWilliams carefully dissects the fundamentals of the leading five RF semiconductor stocks and provides readers with his forecasts for 2012.  As McWilliams puts it, these stocks have the simplicity even Warren Buffett would admire.

Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' highly acclaimed State of Tech reports that offer 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.  These reports, as well as McWilliams' regular commentary and real-time trade alerts, are available for free to trial subscribers.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

  • In a June 2010 report covering the semiconductor package and test sector, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to avoid FormFactor. The stock went down almost immediately following the report and now trades 60% lower. With FormFactor now trading below its net cash value, should investors consider picking up shares at a bargain price?
  • McWilliams suggested buying Towerstream while the stock was trading below $2.  During the last two days it has moved up over 30%.  Does McWilliams think the demise of the proposed merger between AT&T and T-Mobile is good news for TowerStream and its WiFi offload strategy? Can investors expect AT&T and T-Mobile to increase their capital investment going forward? What has happened in the last 12 months that has made WiFi offload deals even more likely?  Why is it that even giant AT&T can't readily duplicate TowerStream's New York City WiFi network?
  • Wall Street has been busy selling off shares of Finisar and JDS Uniphase based on the premise that fiber to the home (FTTH) projects will further lower revenue for these two leaders in fiber optics.  Is that the right way to look at the fiber optics industry or are there more important factors Wall Street is missing?  Why might the acceleration of Remote Optical Add / Drop Multiplexers (ROADM) more than offset slower demand for FTTH deployments?  Which of the two leaders does McWilliams think will benefit most and what does he think will drive its upside?
  • What does the proposed merger between Lam Research and Novellus mean for Applied Materials? Are the terms of the merger favorable for Lam Research and Novellus employees?  What does McWilliams think will drive the share price of Lam Research higher immediately following the completion of the merger?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 250% since its inception versus 37% for the S&P 500.
