PRINCETON, N.J.,  Jan. 23, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research
(http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on
technology stocks, has published updated outlooks on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL),
Altera (Nasdaq: ALTR), SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), Lam Research (Nasdaq: LRCX) and
Cypress Semiconductor (Nasdaq: CY).

After a series of reports that nailed the market's high and low points in 2012,
Editor  Paul McWilliams  has published his outlook for 2013. His new State of
Tech report covers 72 technology stocks and outlines which stocks investors will
want to own and which they should avoid. The report also dives deep into a
number of exciting, emerging tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street curve.  

This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology in
2013. Trial subscribers will receive the 126-page report, which includes 35
detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. Trial subscribers
will also receive McWilliams' earnings previews, offering in-depth coverage
ahead of key earnings reports for dozens of tech stocks.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned
a reputation for his skill in 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.  To this point, no one has been more accurate than
McWilliams when it comes to Apple.

Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Apple was
positioned to win big when it was trading for less than  $10  per share (split
adjusted).  However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next
Inning readers to sell.  What led McWilliams to predict Apple's decline late in
2012 and what does he now predict for the stock in 2013?  In recent reports,
McWilliams also offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds
valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers.

report, you are invited to take a free, 21-day, no obligation trial with Next

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Apple: Does McWilliams expect Apple to rally to  $600  - or even  $700  - in
the wake of its earnings report this week? Earlier this year when Apple made its
first run to the mid-$600s, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was time
to take profits and reiterated that view in the fall as Apple moved above  $700.
 In his new earnings preview, McWilliams reveals the real reasons why Apple
pulled back sharply from its  September 2012  high, but more importantly,
McWilliams outlines his outlook for Apple in 2013.  Here he shares what he
thinks Apple needs to do to gain traction against Android with its iPhone, how
he thinks Apple will fare in the expanding tablet market and specifically what
he looks for Apple to do in the TV market. This report is a "must read" for all
Apple investors and analysts.

-- Altera: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would
outperform Altera.  Because Altera had been the big winner during the last two
years, this was a bold forecast that went against the grain of Wall Street
forecasts.  However, McWilliams was right - Xilinx was the winner hands down in
all categories, and posted a solid profit while the price of Altera declined for
the year. Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive
investment in 2013? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are
important to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams see these
trends shaping up for 2013?

-- SanDisk: In July, when SanDisk was trading at  $36.48, McWilliams told
investors that SanDisk was deeply undervalued. With shares now 31% higher, does
McWilliams expect further gains for SanDisk investors? Could SanDisk shares move
above  $60  in the near term? Do current dynamics in the memory market favor
SanDisk?

-- Lam Research: Is Lam Research now a more attractive investment than rival
Applied Materials? Which stock does McWilliams recommend for investors looking
to cover the semi equipment sector?  What other stock in the sector does
McWilliams think investors should consider at this juncture?

-- Cypress: In his special year-end State of Tech report, McWilliams predicted
that Cypress would fall short of Q4 expectations.  Two weeks later, Cypress
lowered its Q4 guidance.  What weakness did McWilliams see that Wall Street
missed?  Has the introduction Apple's new "Lighting" 9-pin connector posed
challenges for Cypress as an Apple supplier? After a tough 2012, is Cypress
poised for a strong rebound in 2013?  What strategy does McWilliams think
Cypress will attempt to execute this year to rebound?
