PRINCETON, N.J.,  April 5, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research

technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ),
Corning (NYSE: GLW), Dell (Nasdaq: DELL), Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) and
Texas Instruments (Nasdaq: TXN).

So far, the roadmap Editor  Paul McWilliams  laid out for 2013 has been
extremely accurate with rebounds and rallies in key segments of the tech sector.
 His new State of Tech report covers 71 technology stocks and dives deep into a
number of exciting, emerging tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street curve.

tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. This report is a must read for
investors and analysts focusing on technology in 2013.

Already in 2013, McWilliams suggested buying several stocks ahead of quarterly
earnings reports including Cree (up 48% year to date), Micron (up 46% year to
date), Marvell (up 44% year to date), PMC Sierra (up 25% year to date) and
SanDisk (up 25% year to date). Stocks he suggested avoiding/selling include
Fusion-io (down 34% year to date) and Netlist (down 14% year to date).

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Hewlett-Packard: Without hesitation or caveat, McWilliams advised Next Inning
readers to sell Hewlett-Packard at its then current price in the $40s when it
announced the termination of  Mark Hurd.  Why might HP's botched acquisition of
Autonomy weigh on the company well into 2013? Is HP poised to face formidable
new competition in the software space? Should investors continue to avoid HP, or
might a turnaround opportunity emerge in the near-term?

-- Corning: Are Corning's key markets poised to make a rebound? Why is Corning's
development of  Willow Glass  an important new technology beyond the fact it
enables flexible displays? How might  Willow Glass  be a game-changer in terms
of Corning's production process? Do new cutting-edge products developed by
Corning have the potential to deliver future growth that is not well represented
in Corning's stock price?

-- Dell: When analysts slammed Dell following its  November 2012  earnings
release, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Wall Street simply didn't
understand the changes Dell had already made to its business model and that
there was a nearly 70% upside available from its then current price of  $8.86 
to McWilliams' target of  $14.75.  In December, Dell was upgraded by Goldman
Sachs, but as McWilliams explained then, the upgrade still missed the core
story, and he reiterated that Dell was worth at least  $14.75.  As the buyout
stories surfaced and pundits originally claimed stockholders were getting a good
deal at  $13.65, McWilliams wrote it would take more to get the deal done, and
as McWilliams predicted, higher bidders have emerged. In his State of Tech
Report, McWilliams explains what analysts are still missing in the Dell story
and presents the price range he thinks Dell shareholders will get once Dell is
taken private. Could Dell shares commend as much as  $20  from a buyer as some
pundits now claim?

-- Applied Materials:  McWilliams suggested throughout 2012 that Next Inning
readers accumulate shares on dips into the $10s.  As he carefully explained,
while Applied Materials' revenue would likely weaken as it subsequently did,
there is a rebound coming in 2013 that will start with Applied's April ending
quarter.  With Wall Street now embracing this view of Applied Materials, does
McWilliams think it's now time to take profits or that there is considerable
more upside potential for the stock.  What one thing about Applied Materials'
story does McWilliams think Wall Street is still missing and why is it

-- Texas Instruments:  McWilliams turned a cold shoulder to Texas Instruments
when it announced it would buy National Semi.  According to McWilliams, TI was
overpaying and he pulled no punches when he said investors should sell at the
then current mid-$30  price.  However, he flipped to a bullish view and
suggested buying the stock last year when the price dipped into the mid-$20s.
What caused McWilliams to reverse his view on TI and with the stock now back
into the mid-$30s does he think it's time to take profits?

Founded in  September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 231%
since its inception versus 72% for the S&P 500.
