Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- Microsoft: What are McWilliams' thoughts about Windows 8.1 and how does McWilliams think Microsoft can benefit from truly harmonizing its operating system across the PC, tablet and smartphone platforms?  In a series of reports in late August, McWilliams correctly predicted that Microsoft might be looking to buy all or part of Nokia. Now that this announcement has come to pass, how does McWilliams expect the deal to shift Microsoft's strategy going forward? What's next for Microsoft as CEO Steve Ballmer steps aside?

-- QLogic: What trends in high speed adapters does McWilliams believe will impact QLogic going forward?  Does McWilliams think QLogic's PCIe strategy will prove to be a winner? What is McWilliams' full value price for QLGC and how much upside does it represent?

-- KLA-Tencor: What differentiates KLA-Tencor from other major players in the sector like Applied Materials and Lam Research?  Are there signs indicating demand for KLA-Tencor products and services will improve as we move forward?  Does McWilliams see this as a secular change that will last or just as a short-term upside?  What are the drivers behind this change in the demand environment?

-- Lattice: What major mistakes did Lattice make in 2012? Are there concerns that Lattice has lost positioning in the telecom market? Does McWilliams believe the stock could move higher by 20% from current levels?
