Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Microsoft: McWilliams encouraged readers to buy Microsoft last year when it was trading in the mid-$20s and forecast that the stock would hit the mid-$30s in 2013. With shares now up 37% year to date, including dividends, and trading above $36, is it time for investors to take profits, or has McWilliams' revised his expectations upward? What three key strategic objectives could provide Microsoft with substantial upside potential?

-- Nokia: After rallying sharply into the start of 2013, Nokia shares pulled back. What three factors have weighed on Nokia shares? Does McWilliams believe that recent weakness has opened up an opportunity for investors? Is Nokia well positioned to execute a turnaround that could reward investors handsomely?  What does Nokia need to accomplish to push its share price higher?  What does McWilliams think about the new Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone?

-- Skyworks: How does Skyworks compare to rivals Avago, TriQuint, and RF Micro in terms of its positioning in the broader market? What are the implications for investors of Skyworks' role as a supplier to Apple? Is Skyworks poised to outperform the broader technology sector?  What one thing has changed this year in the RF semiconductor market and why is it important for investors to understand this change?  What strategy does McWilliams think is the best way for tech investors to cover the RF semiconductor sector?

-- Fairchild: After calling three successful short-term swing trades in 2012, does McWilliams think it is time to take a more long-term view of Fairchild, or does it remain a target only for short-term trades?  What changes could Fairchild make to unlock more value for investors?

-- 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. Including dividends, the investment returned over $160% in four years. After "declaring victory" on that paradigm, what does McWilliams see in store for TSMC going forward and what four wildcards do TSMC investors need to track carefully?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 290% since its inception versus 85% for the S&P 500.
