PRINCETON, N.J., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for KLA-Tencor (Nasdaq: KLAC), Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM), United Microelectronics (NYSE: UMC) and Tower Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TSEM).
Editor Paul McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry, and has earned a reputation for his skill at 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' smart calls on Apple have been on the spotlight recently. McWilliams first suggested considering Apple as a good speculative investment in June 2003 at the split adjusted price of $9.85. As Apple moved above the $600 level for the first time earlier this year, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to consider diversifying away from Apple and locking in the 6,000% profit. McWilliams most recent reports on Apple address whether Apple investors should consider trimming stakes further on any move above $600.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- KLA-Tencor and Applied Materials: Are broader trends in semiconductor fabrication poised to benefit KLA-Tencor and Applied Materials? Does McWilliams believe that both of these stocks are now over-sold? Which of the two offers a more attractive opportunity right now?
-- TSMC: In December 2008, Next Inning published one of McWilliams' extremely insightful Paradigm Papers covering the contract semiconductor fabrication market. McWilliams suggested investors interested in this market buy TSMC as a strategic investment. As McWilliams noted in his recent State of Tech report covering the sector, the predictions made in 2008 have played out very well. With Samsung, Intel and GlobalFoundries' new mega-plant looming like dark clouds on the horizon for TSMC, is it time for investors to take profits or has Wall Street overstated the risks facing TSMC? How is TSMC's shortage of leading edge fabrication capacity impacting various semiconductor companies and market sectors? Which companies are likely to be hurt and which are likely to be benefited by this shortage?
-- UMC: McWilliams predicted Chartered Semiconductor would be bought out three months before its agreement to be acquired by ATIC was announced. Does McWilliams expect that UMC will also be bought out in the not too distant future? Excluding the premium for a buyout, does McWilliams think UMC has a near to mid-term potential to post a 50% gain? What is McWilliams' exit target for UMC investors?
-- Tower Semi: McWilliams has been writing about the Tower Semi capital notes for over two years, though they have only recently become a topic on Wall Street. What do Tower Semi investors need to know about the company's recent announcement regarding its capital notes? Is this announcement a meaningful step forward in resolving this issue? Was the market's negative reaction to the news a mistake, suggesting that investors now have a buying opportunity?
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 256% since its inception versus 45% for the S&P 500.
