Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- Micron: McWilliams has long been in tune with the cycles of memory chip makers like Micron, and during 2012 called swing trades for Micron that yielded a total return of 52%. Later McWilliams suggested buying and holding shares of Micron at its then current price of $6.34.  What six factors converged to drive Micron's impressive performance in 2013? Will these factors drive more upside in 2014 or should investors take profits ahead of the company's earnings report this week?

-- DragonWave: What factors have driven volatility in DragonWave shares in recent months? How important is DragonWave's deal with defense and security company Saab to provide technology for networks in Scandanavia? Does the deal change the equation regarding a turnaround for DragonWave and potential upside for the stock?

-- 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? What is McWilliams' price target for the stock and how much upside does it represent?

-- 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? At their current prices, does McWilliams think investors should buy EMC or VMWare?  What does McWilliams think about EMC competitor, Citrix?
