Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- TriQuint: The day before RF semiconductor stock prices bottomed last November, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to expect a dramatic turnaround in 2013 and suggested it was time to buy.  He predicted we would see a notable increase in revenue, and with that, higher profit margins and upside earnings surprises.  He also noted that TriQuint would be one of the companies that would benefit most from this trend, and forecasted that TriQuint's earnings this year would be more than double what the analysts were estimating then.  Since then analysts have increased their earnings forecasts to what McWilliams was forecasting almost a year ago and the price of TriQuint has nearly doubled.  Does McWilliams see more upside ahead for the stock? Could shares move above $10 in the near term?

-- Lam Research: Lam has been a clear winner this year, up 49%. Does McWilliams see more upside in store for the stock, or is it time to take profits? What options strategy can Lam investors use to lock in profits and reduce risk?

-- Teradyne: In October 2012, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to wait for the stock to trade below $14 before buying and to set a sell target of $16 to $18. The stock dipped into McWilliams' buy range two days later and traded up into McWilliams price target range before the year was out. In his year-end State of Tech report, McWilliams advised readers that earnings estimates for Teradyne were too high and outlined a conservative options strategy that would allow investors leverage additional upside potential while lowering cash exposure to the investment by nearly 20%. What options strategy has allowed Teradyne investors to lock in profits and what is McWilliams suggesting Teradyne investors do ahead of the company's upcoming earnings report?

-- Avnet: McWilliams advised readers to buy Avnet and its rival Arrow when the stocks were bottoming in the fall of 2012.  What is McWilliams' view of Avnet heading into its upcoming earnings report? Does McWilliams prefer Avnet over rival Arrow?  What valuation penalty does Wall Street tend to apply to these two mega-distributors and why is that likely to continue?

-- Benchmark: Last year McWilliams suggested that readers buy Benchmark at its then current price of $13.95.  With the stock now nearing the low side of his originally targeted exit price, does he think it is time to sell, or has McWilliams raised his exit target?  What does McWilliams view as a "full value" price range for Benchmark?  What were analysts overlooking last year that McWilliams brought to the attention of Next Inning readers, and what does he see in store for Benchmark going forward? Is he expecting Benchmark to exceed expectations when it reports earnings?
