Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Apple: Based on reports from suppliers, what new information has McWilliams learned about Apple's next smartphone, which some are calling the iPhone 5S? When does McWilliams think Apple will release its next iPhone model and what data leads him to that conclusion?  What would set this phone apart from prior models, and what would this mean for Apple suppliers like Avago and TriQuint?

-- Ciena: Is Ciena poised to benefit from a rebound in demand from the wireline telecom sector? With revenue approaching breakeven, does McWilliams think Ciena's business model will scale to produce significant profit margin growth during the second half?  What two data points can we gather from a close analysis of Ciena's cash flow statement?  Does McWilliams think Ciena has the potential to trade above $20 during the second half of 2013?  Should investors consider buying ahead of Ciena's earnings report or hold back in anticipation of another dip? 

-- Finisar: What does McWilliams say are the three primary reasons investors should be bullish on the fiber optics sector? Is Finisar well positioned to capture market share as well as optimize its profit potential in 2013? What data can be gleaned from recent quarterly reports from Avago, JDS Uniphase and Oclaro to project what we should expect to hear from Finisar this week?  What aspect of the Finisar story is likely to keep Wall Street nervous about the stock during the first half of 2013?  Using pure fundamental analysis, what price range does McWilliams think Finisar should trade in this year?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 235% since its inception versus 67% for the S&P 500.
