Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- Apple: Next Inning is known for helping its readers generate strong returns, and no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple. Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted). While many analysts turned negative on Apple when Steve Jobs died, McWilliams maintained his strongly bullish opinion.  However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell. Is now the time to invest in Apple, or should investors avoid the stock ahead of its upcoming earnings report?  What specifically does McWilliams say Apple should do to reclaim its former glory?

-- Cree: In 2012 when Cree was trudging through the low to mid-$20s, McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to build a position in the stock with his forecast that Cree would in fact be a big winner in the LED lighting market in spite of dismal Wall Street forecasts.  With Cree now trading above $59, does McWilliams think the investment has played out or is there reason to continue holding?  After the stock got punished harshly following its Q2 earnings, is Cree positioned to deliver an upside Q3 report that could send the stock back towards its yearly high of $76? What does McWilliams think about Cree's aggressive move into LED lighting fixtures and LED bulbs?  What does McWilliams see in store for Cree going forward?

-- 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?

-- EMC and VMware: Why does McWilliams say it's important for investors to view EMC's value from both a traditional valuation perspective as well as a deconstructed valuation perspective? What does McWilliams think about the new EMC/VMware joint venture, Pivotal Initiative?  At their current prices, does McWilliams think investors should buy EMC or VMware?  What does McWilliams think about EMC competitor, Citrix?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 297% since its inception versus 87% for the S&P 500.
