Financial writer Steve Halpern, who has covered the newsletter industry for nearly three decades, has called the Next Inning State of Tech report "the most ambitious project" he's ever seen in the investment world. Next Inning Editor Paul McWilliams just published his new installment on January 6th.

This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology right now.

Over the past decade, well over a thousand Wall Street analysts, money managers and institutional investors have joined thousands of savvy private investors in gaining key tech industry insights and intelligence from industry veteran and celebrated investor Paul McWilliams in his role as editor of Next Inning Technology Research.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.

Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- Intel: While Wall Street continues to be narrowly focused on PC sales when it comes to assessments of Intel, what does McWilliams see as the "real story" that will drive Intel shares in 2014? What is McWilliams expecting from Intel's earnings report this week? Does McWilliams see an upside surprise above conservative analyst outlooks?

-- Linear Technology: McWilliams suggested buying Linear Technology at the then current price of $28.75 in mid-2012.  As it turned out, this was just one day before Linear Tech hit its 52-week low. Wall Street subsequently recognized the value of Linear Tech's business model, and pushed its price up to a 12-year high last month.  What led McWilliams to classify Linear Tech as a "strategic investment" in 2012 when Wall Street apparently wanted nothing to do with the stock?  And now, given its sharp run-up, has the stock moved above what McWilliams thinks is a sustainable valuation?  What strategy does McWilliams suggest Linear Tech investors should execute at this juncture?

-- Skyworks: McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to consider buying Skyworks when the stock fell into the high-teens in Q4 2012 and accurately predicted its earnings growth in 2013.  As it turned out, these projections were correct, and the price of Skyworks' stock went up 40.7% in 2013.  Is Skyworks poised to outperform the broader technology sector again in 2014? What has changed last year in the RF semiconductor market and why is it important for investors to understand this change?  What is McWilliams' price target for Skyworks in 2014?

-- DragonWave:  While the prices for most tech stocks have been flat to down so far in 2014, the price of DragonWave has done up 15.2%.  What has caused this unusual rise, and what could cause DragonWave's price to go much higher as we move through the year? 

-- TSMC: In his "Paradigm Paper" titled "Trends Favor Semiconductor Fabrication Companies," McWilliams strongly encouraged Next Inning readers to buy TSMC in December 2008 when the stock was trading for only $7.50. In January 2013 McWilliams suggested that Next Inning readers "declare victory" and cash out of TSMC with a total profit of 160% including dividends.  What led McWilliams to make this call and reclassify TSMC as a "speculative investment?"  Given the poor performance of TSMC's stock, which even including dividends only returned 4% in 2013, has Wall Street given up on the stock too?  What does McWilliams classify as the big "wildcards" in TSMC's deck that investors need to consider today? 

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 318% since its inception versus 103% for the S&P 500.
