McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- TriQuint: What two factors are leading to lower gross margins for TriQuint? Does McWilliams expect TriQuint to overcome these factors in the near term? Does McWilliams expect that TriQuint could trade for double its current price later this year? What is TriQuint's status at Apple?
-- Xilinx: Does McWilliams continue to believe investors should consider the programmable logic sector leaders, Altera and Xilinx, as core strategic investments? In early 2010, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers Altera was positioned to outperform Xilinx during the coming two years. Does he still believe that's the case for 2012 or does he think it's time to switch horses? What data does he offer to support his opinion?
-- Alcatel-Lucent: What factors have driven the price of Alcatel-Lucent to near penny stock levels? Does McWilliams expect a reversal of any of these factors to come into play during 2012? Could Alcatel-Lucent shares be worth well over double what they trade for today?
-- TSMC: In March, McWilliams reported on rumors that TSMC was having problems keeping pace with demand for its 28nm fabrication process and outlined the three sectors that would be impacted by these developments. What companies may yet be impacted by TSMC's 28nm shortage and, as we've since learned, 40nm capacity, and which competitors may see some benefit? What other factors are weighing on TSMC right now?
-- Intersil: What big mistakes did Intersil make in the last couple of years that are now keeping a lid on its stock price? Is a buyout of the company the best thing that Intersil investors can hope for right now or is Intersil in the early stages of a strong turnaround story that will benefit investors more than a buy out? Why should investors pay particularly close attention to Intersil's cash flow? How does its cash flow stack up to its reported earnings and why is that important? How safe is Intersil's generous dividend?
