Time to Take Profits in MEMC? Leading Tech Analyst Updates Outlooks for MEMC Electronic Materials, EMC, PMC-Sierra, Integrated Device Technology and Qualcomm

PRINCETON, N.J., May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has issued updated outlooks for MEMC Electronic Materials (NYSE: WFR), EMC (NYSE: EMC), PMC-Sierra (Nasdaq: PMCS), Integrated Device Technology (Nasdaq: IDTI) and Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM).

During 2012, Next Inning editor, Paul McWilliams predicted both the spring and fall corrections as well as the rally that started in November and carried through the first quarter of 2013.  On the day the November rally started, he advised readers it would lift the NASDAQ by as much at 18% by the end of March 2013.  As we know now, that is exactly what happened. 

Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' 167-page State of Tech report, which includes 35 detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. In this report, McWilliams shares his opinions as to which of companies investors should buy and which should be avoided. This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology in 2013.

Already in 2013, McWilliams suggested buying several including Cree (up 84% year to date), Micron (up 86% year to date), Marvell (up 59% year to date), and SanDisk (up 33% year to date). Stocks he suggested avoiding/selling include Fusion-IO (down 41% year to date), Oclaro (down 35% year to date), and Netlist (down 16% year to date). McWilliams' new earnings previews outline which stocks investors will want to own and which they should avoid.

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- MEMC: A little over a year ago, McWilliams wrote that there was room for speculation with the stock trading at $3.75. With shares now up by nearly 120%, is it time for investors to take profits in MEMC, or is there room for more upside? How has MEMC shifted not only its strategic focus, but its core business model?  What does McWilliams think this shift will deliver over time?  What options strategy might MEMC investors use to lower the risk of continuing to hold MEMC, yet target an exit price above $11 per share?  Learn how to leverage a simple trick the pros use every day to lower risks and maximize gains.

-- EMC: McWilliams has long suggested that EMC is a strong candidate to pay a regular dividend and that its lack of a dividend had led it to underperform other tech blue chips during 2013. McWilliams pulled no punches in his highly acclaimed Q1 State of Tech report where he wrote that EMC's stock price would immediately move up if the company instituted a regular dividend policy. Where does McWilliams see the price of EMC going as we move through the year and at what price does he think the stock will reach its full valuation?

-- PMC-Sierra and IDT: McWilliams was critical of IDT's move into the enterprise SSD business. As he noted in his last State of Tech report, while the strategy leverages IDT's strength in PCIe switch technology, it simply lack synergy, and as such is a distraction for the core business model.  Does McWilliams see IDT's move to sell this business as a notable positive development for the company? With the price of IDT now up more than 42% from McWilliams suggested entry price last year and trading within his target range, is it time for investors to lock down profits or does McWilliams think there is more upside in store?  Should PMC-Sierra investors be excited about this acquisition?  What's different in the PMC-Sierra equation and what price objective does McWilliams think is reasonable for investors to target?

-- Qualcomm: Apple has exerted strong pressure on the margins of suppliers like Cirrus Logic and RF Micro. Is Qualcomm also likely to be impacted by Apple's pricing pressure?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 268% since its inception versus 81% for the S&P 500.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
