Topics discussed in the latest 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. McWilliams again advised investors to sell Apple following its Q1 2013 earnings report. The stock opened the next day at $460.  Apple fell to close Q2 below $400, but has recovered modestly in anticipation of its earnings report this week.  Is now the time to invest in Apple, or should investors continue to avoid the stock ahead of its upcoming earnings report?  What specifically does McWilliams say Apple should do to reclaim its former glory?

-- Sanmina: In his Q3 2012 State of Tech report, McWilliams outlined a compelling bullish thesis for Sanmina, but warned readers the price would likely dip before moving higher.  Following that, the price of Sanmina fell 11% to a low of $7.58, but quickly rebounded to close the year at $11.07, where McWilliams reiterated his bullish outlook. What was Wall Street overlooking in the Sanmina equation? With the price now up roughly 100% from the Q4 2012 low, is the bullish view McWilliams outlined fully priced into the stock or does he see more upside potential during the next six to 12 months? Could shares hit the $20 mark?  What is McWilliams' exit strategy?

-- Texas Instruments: TI has recently repositioned itself as an embedded processor solutions company. In what ways does this new direction put TI in the center of a new growth paradigm centered on the emergence of what is known as the "Internet of Things?" What two factors are driving this new paradigm? At what price would McWilliams add shares of TI?  What TI competitors are most threatened by TI's new strategy?

-- STMicro:  What company-specific factors have weighed on STMicro and why is Wall Street now showing interest in the stock? Does McWilliams see other factors shifting over time to work in the company's favor? In what critical growth market has STMicro recently overtaken Texas Instruments to be ranked number one by market share? Does STMicro offer investors long-term profit potential?

-- Altera: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would outperform Altera for the next two years.  Because Altera had been the big winner during 2010 and 2011, this was a bold prediction that went against the grain of Wall Street forecasts.  However, McWilliams was right – Xilinx was the winner hands down in all categories. For the full year of 2012, the price of Xilinx went up 14.3% while the price of Altera went down 6.3%, and this year Xilinx is beating Altera by almost a 10 to 1 ratio. Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive investment than its rival Altera? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are important to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams see these trends shaping up for the rest of 2013?
