PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ — Next Inning Technology Research http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, announced it has updated outlooks for Flextronics (Nasdaq: FLEX), Benchmark Electronics (NYSE: BHE), Celestica (NYSE: CLS), Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) and Sanmina-SCI (Nasdaq: SANM).

During the July earnings season, editor Paul McWilliams was spot on. Not only was he the only one to predict Intel would report revenue of $8B, he laid out the details so accurately that one reader commented, “It was almost as though McWilliams wrote the script for the Intel conference call.”

With the October earnings season just around the corner, McWilliams has begun publishing his special “State of Tech” reports. In this series of reports, readers will find detailed data covering the sector leaders, commentary about sector trends and specific calls as to which stocks McWilliams thinks readers should buy and which he thinks they should sell.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his State of Tech report:

— Flextronics is up over 230% since McWilliams called it a strategic buy in December. What fueled these impressive returns and should investors continue to hold the stock?

— Jabil Circuit is up 88% from where McWilliams called it a good speculative buy in December. Has the outlook changed for the company? Why should investors closely track Jabil’s relationship with Research in Motion?

— Benchmark is up 60% since McWilliams called it a good speculative buy in March. What is the “wildcard” that could have a big impact on an investment in Benchmark in the coming months?

— Celestica is up nearly 165% since McWilliams called it a good speculative buy in March. What factors have led McWilliams to view Celestica more positively in 2009? Has Celestica finally overcome the uneven execution that hampered it in the past?

— Should investors be tempted by Sanmina’s recent strong move higher? Is Sanmina likely to be an acquisition target, and which firms would be the most likely buyers?
