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 and closed out June
lower by 13%. 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?

-- Cree: In 2012 when Cree was trudging through the low to mid-$20s,
McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to build a position in the stock
with his forecast that Cree would in fact be a big winner in the LED lighting
market in spite of dismal Wall Street forecasts.With Cree now trading above
$65, does McWilliams think the investment has played out or is there reason to
continue holding?What does McWilliams think about Cree's aggressive move
into LED lighting fixtures and LED bulbs?What does McWilliams see in store
for Cree going forward?

-- Microsoft: What are McWilliams' thoughts about Windows 8 and besides
waiting for Windows 8.1 or accepting the risk of running its beta version,
what is an easy way for Windows 8 users to get the function of their "start
button" back? How does McWilliams think Microsoft can benefit from truly
harmonizing its operating system across the PC, tablet and smartphone
platforms?After a strong move higher in the first half of 2013, are
Microsoft shares trading near McWilliams' target or is there room for shares
to move even higher?

-- EMC and VMware: McWilliams had long called for EMC to institute a dividend
and wrote specifically early this year the lack of a dividend was the number
one thing holding down the price of EMC. With EMC now finally paying a
dividend, what's next for the stock?Why does McWilliams say it's important
for investors to view EMC's value from both a traditional valuation
perspective as well as a deconstructed valuation perspective? What does
McWilliams think about the new EMC/VMWare joint venture, Pivotal
Initiative?At their current prices, does McWilliams think investors should
buy EMC or VMWare?What does McWilliams think about EMC competitor, Citrix?
