During 2012, Next Inning editor, Paul McWilliams predicted both the spring and
fall corrections as well as the rally that started in November and carried

McWilliams' outlook for the second quarter and provide readers with deep
insight into the world's leading tech companies. McWilliams also shares his
opinions as to which of these companies investors should buy and which should
be avoided.

which includes 35 detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached.
This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology
in 2013.

year to date), Micron (up 48% year to date), Marvell (up 34% year to date),
PMC Sierra (up 18% year to date) and SanDisk (up 20% year to date). Stocks he

Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- Fusion-io: When Fusion-io was hyped by Wall Street in the fall of 2011,
McWilliams pulled no punches in advising Next Inning readers it was time to
sell, and has consistently maintained a negative view of the stock ever
since.Since his original call to sell Fusion-io the price of its stock has
dropped more than 60%.McWilliams wrote years ago that solid state drives
(SSDs) would be broadly adopted in both the enterprise and PC markets and even
helped Next Inning readers earn huge returns on STEC when it was the early
mover in the sector.However, he turned a cold shoulder to STEC as its price
peaked and did the same to Fusion-io when it was hitting all-time highs.What
did McWilliams see that everyone else was missing?Does McWilliams believe
now is the time to buy Fusion-io or should investors steer clear?Where does
McWilliams think investors who want to participate in the hot SSD industry
should consider allocating funds?

-- Lam Research: Is Lam Research now a more attractive investment than rival
Applied Materials? Does McWilliams expect the demand environment for
semiconductor manufacturing equipment to improve during the balance of 2013
and beyond into 2014? Is Lam poised to drive operating synergies via its
recent merger with Novellus?What two companies in the semiconductor
equipment sector does McWilliams think investors should consider pairing as an
investment?

-- Qualcomm: After years of cycle-trading Qualcomm, McWilliams advised Next
Inning readers in 2010 when Qualcomm dipped into the $30s that it was time to
buy shares with the intent to hold them for the long-run.Does McWilliams
expect Qualcomm to continue to dominate the high-end smartphone market in
2013? Does Intel pose a viable threat?Can Qualcomm develop a meaningful
position in the entry level smartphone market against competitors like
MedidTek?Might a resurgent Blackberry and Nokia provide a big boost for
Qualcomm this year?What new competitive dynamics does McWilliams see
developing for Qualcomm this year?

-- TriQuint: After facing major challenges in 2012, is TriQuint poised for
upside in 2013? Will TriQuint's positioning as an Apple supplier be a positive
for the stock in 2013?How well is TriQuint positioned with Samsung and
BlackBerry?Is McWilliams expecting a positive earnings report from TriQuint
this week?What are his expectations for calendar Q2 2013 guidance?What is
McWilliams top-down thesis for the RF semiconductor sector this year?

-- Xilinx: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would
outperform Altera.Because Altera had been the big winner during the last two
years, this was a bold forecast 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%.Wall Street is now projecting
Xilinx to grow earnings much faster than Altera again in 2013. 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 2013?
