Topics discussed in the latest reports include:
-- Ruckus: McWilliams worked closely with the engineers who wrote the original
WiFi spec in the 1990s and even used prototype WiFi devices in enterprise
applications years before the spec was released. With this background, he was
very familiar with Ruckus long before its public debut last year. However,
many things have changed in the WiFi market during the last few years, and
considering its current valuation, investors should think twice before jumping
on this bandwagon. What has changed in the WiFi market and why is McWilliams
hesitant to recommend Ruckus today?
-- InvenSense: InvenSense was a Wall Street darling when it debuted at $8.30
in November 2011, soaring to $17.05 when McWilliams published his first,
in-depth report on InvenSense and the MEMS market. In that report, McWilliams
predicted that InvenSense shares would likely move higher in the near-term,
but that the stock was overbought and would subsequently fall. Following that
report, InvenSense shares traded to an all-time high of $22.35 in March 2012
before falling all the way to $9.06 in June. Now trading near $15, is
InvenSense still a compelling opportunity for investors looking to play the
huge growth in next-generation consumer electronics? What does the rest of the
MEMS market look like, and who are the biggest players? In his special report
covering the MEMS sector, McWilliams charts the performance of the top-25 MEMS
companies over a three year period. Does McWilliams' earnings and valuation
analysis suggest that InvenSense is poised for further gains?
-- TriQuint: Was the steep post-earnings sell-off in TriQuint warranted, or
has Wall Street created a buying opportunity for investors? Why did TriQuint
sell off while both Skyworks and RF Micro Devices posted gains following their
quarterly reports? Does the disappointing Q1'13 forecast change the long-term
outlook for TriQuint? Is the RF semiconductor sector still poised for strong
growth this year? What does McWilliams think about Anadigics and Avago, which
are also focused on the RF semiconductor sector?
-- Akamai: McWilliams suggested readers consider buying Akamai in June 2011 on
the day the stock dipped slightly below $29. With shares sharply lower
following Akamai's recent earnings, but still above McWilliams' June 2011 buy
price, is it time for investors to consider adding shares or should investors
be looking for a further pullback before adding to positions?
-- TowerJazz Semi: Do TowerJazz's non-GAAP presentation practices distract
investors from its core profitability? What is unique and according about
TowerJazz's business model and why is its core progress being masked
temporarily today? Is TowerJazz doing a good job of managing its limited
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). However, as
Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to
sell. McWilliams' 2012 calls to buy Cree have generated an 80% return in
under a year.
Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 247%
since its inception versus 67% for the S&P 500.
