McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- ARM Holdings: Does the impending release of Microsoft's Windows 8 open up new opportunities for ARM Holdings to break into Intel's traditional PC markets or will it in fact broaden Intel's reach into the hot tablet sector at the expense of ARM? Should investors look more closely at ARM's cash flow or its reported earnings in valuing the stock? Heading into its earnings report, are ARM shares overvalued?
-- Texas Instruments: Following Texas Instruments' announcement that it would buy National Semi for what McWilliams wrote at the time was a substantial premium, McWilliams turned cold on TI. Has he changed his mind now that the acquisition has been completed? Does McWilliams think the move will play out well for TI in the long run? What is McWilliams' outlook for TI heading into its earnings report this week? Should investors wait for a better opportunity to buy TI later in the year?
-- Sanmina-SCI: McWilliams was highly critical of Sanmina in early 2011. In his January 2011 State of Tech report covering the EMS sector, he termed management's comments as "over the top" and suggested selling the stock when it was trading in the mid-teens. Following this, Sanmina announced the departure of its president and COO. When the price of Sanmina finally bottomed in the fall of 2011, McWilliams suggested it was time to buy again. He since suggested hedging risks by selling covered calls when the price hit $11.45 last month. Has the price now fallen below his full-value range to where it makes sense to buy cover for the covered calls and accumulate shares? What does McWilliams think about other stocks in the EMS sector today?
-- Celestica: Is Wall Street valuing Celestica at a bargain price because of its exposure to Research in Motion? How much exposure to RIM does Celestica actually have? Does Celestica have a high customer concentration risk beyond RIM? In March, when Celestica was trading for $9.57, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to avoid the stock and look for it dip back to the mid-$8s. With the price now down to McWilliams' range, does he still think it's a good idea to buy shares ahead of earnings? What factors does McWilliams see in the Celestica equation that makes it a higher-risk investment relative to other EMS companies? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value target for Celestica, and what stock does he think it should be paired with?
-- STMicro: Why are issues at Nokia working against STMicro? Does McWilliams see those problems working out in STMicro's favor later this year? Did STMicro make a good move by unloading Numonyx to Micron? Is STMicro's hefty dividend in danger of being reduced? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for STMicro, and how much upside does it represent from current levels?
