Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Cirrus: McWilliams has long pointed to Cirrus' high concentration of business with Apple as a notable risk for Cirrus investors. And as McWilliams expected, Cirrus lowered its gross profit expectations in May. What is next for Cirrus? Does McWilliams see a rebound for the stock following upcoming earnings report?  What is it about Cirrus' history that McWilliams finds troubling, and what often overlooked fundamental fact about the company's financial data does McWilliams think investors should consider.

-- KLA-Tencor: What differentiates KLA-Tencor from other major players in the sector like Applied Materials and Lam Research?  Are there signs indicating demand for KLA-Tencor products and services will improve as we move through 2013?  Does McWilliams see this as a secular change that will last or just as a short-term upside?  What are the drivers behind this change in the demand environment?

-- QLogic: What trends in high speed adapters does McWilliams believe will impact QLogic going forward?  Does McWilliams think QLogic's recently announced PCIe strategy will prove to be a winner? What factors may have driven the recent, abrupt CEO change at QLogic? What is McWilliams' full value price for QLGC and how much upside does it represent?

-- Maxim: Why is Maxim's strategy and business model likely to keep its profit margins lower than those of the once-similar Linear Tech? Is Maxim likely to face increased competitive threats from Texas Instruments going forward? What is McWilliams' price target for Maxim and how much upside does it represent?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 298% since its inception versus 86% for the S&P 500.
