Next Inning editor Paul McWilliams was named the winner in both the Forbes and AOL stock picking contests for newsletter writers in 2010.

-- With the explosion in wireless networks, is demand accelerating in TriQuint's key markets? How does TriQuint compare to competitors like Anadigics, RF Micro Devices, and Skyworks Solutions? Does TriQuint have unique advantages that set it apart from the pack? Should investors be concerned that TriQuint evidently lost its design positioning in the new Apple iPhone for Verizon to Skyworks?

Is McWilliams expecting a scenario in which Alcatel shares move up a dollar or more this year? What are McWilliams thoughts about Alcatel's new LightRadio technology? Does he think it's all that its billed to be?
-- Do design wins for EZchip's newest products suggest a strong trend of long-term growth? Is McWilliams concerned about potentially weak Q1 guidance? Does McWilliams see any short-term weakness as a buying opportunity for EZchip investors?
-- Does McWilliams see FalconStor as a potential acquisition candidate? Why might an acquiring company be particularly interested in FalconStor? What company does McWilliams think is the best candidate to buy FalconStor?
-- What is McWilliams' view of the "rent-a-cloud" model employed by Rackspace, Savvis and other data center firms? Has Rackspace scaled its business to where it is generating solid cash flow? What does McWilliams view as the best way to play the data center and cloud computing trends?
