Editor Paul McWilliams has displayed uncanny accuracy in identifying winners and losers during this challenging and historic period for the markets. McWilliams called the rally that started in March 2009 and provided Next Inning readers with buy recommendations that in some cases returned in excess of 400%.

McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

-- How does having an "Architectural License" from ARM Holdings uniquely position Qualcomm and Marvell against other regular license holders like Texas Instruments?  How are the two companies leveraging these unique license agreements and what might they gain from the strategy?  Why might 2011 finally be the year when Qualcomm breaks out of its long-term trading range to the upside?  What does McWilliams see as the timing and catalysts for this potential move?

-- What factors have led McWilliams to change his view of Broadcom from "speculative" to "strategic"?  What major red flag has Broadcom finally begun taking steps to address?  What important tech trends is Broadcom well positioned to leverage?  What is McWilliams' estimated fair value price range for Broadcom?

-- While there are clearly substantial execution risks that Marvell must overcome, why might Marvell's potential upside in 2011 be significant nonetheless?  What major tech trends could help Marvell be a big winner? When does McWilliams expect we'll see evidence of Marvell's success?  Does he think Wall Street finally lift its sour view of Marvell once this evidence is visible?

-- What is the most significant risk now facing NetLogic?  Does an in depth valuation analysis suggest there's significant upside in store for NetLogic? When does McWilliams think we'll see NetLogic accelerate its revenue growth?

-- Why does McWilliams see the EZchip story as "abundantly simple"?  What is the roadmap for EZchip products and what emerging trends are these products likely to address?  Does McWilliams view the acquisition of Wintegra by PMC-Sierra as a major competitive threat for EZchip? EZchip has hit every target McWilliams set for the stock in 2010; what is his target for 2011 and how much upside does it represent from current prices?
