Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- TriQuint: The day before RF semiconductor stock prices bottomed last
November, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to expect a dramatic
turnaround in 2013 and suggested it was time to buy. He predicted we would
see a notable increase in revenue, and with that, higher profit margins and
upside earnings surprises. He also noted that TriQuint would be one of the
companies that would benefit most from this trend, and forecasted that
TriQuint's earnings this year would be more than double what the analysts were
estimating then. Since then analysts have increased their earnings forecasts
to what McWilliams was forecasting almost a year ago and the price of TriQuint
has nearly doubled. Does McWilliams see more upside ahead for the stock?
Could shares move above $10 in the near term?

-- Lam Research: Lam has been a clear winner this year, up 49%. Does
McWilliams see more upside in store for the stock, or is it time to take
profits? What options strategy can Lam investors use to lock in profits and
reduce risk?

-- Teradyne: In October 2012, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers to wait
for the stock to trade below $14 before buying and to set a sell target of $16
to $18. The stock dipped into McWilliams' buy range two days later and traded
up into McWilliams price target range before the year was out. In his year-end
State of Tech report, McWilliams advised readers that earnings estimates for
Teradyne were too high and outlined a conservative options strategy that would
allow investors leverage additional upside potential while lowering cash
exposure to the investment by nearly 20%. What options strategy has allowed
Teradyne investors to lock in profits and what is McWilliams suggesting
Teradyne investors do ahead of the company's upcoming earnings report?

-- Avnet: McWilliams advised readers to buy Avnet and its rival Arrow when the
stocks were bottoming in the fall of 2012. What is McWilliams' view of Avnet
heading into its upcoming earnings report? Does McWilliams prefer Avnet over
rival Arrow? What valuation penalty does Wall Street tend to apply to these
two mega-distributors and why is that likely to continue?

-- Benchmark: Last year McWilliams suggested that readers buy Benchmark at its
then current price of $13.95. With the stock now nearing the low side of his
originally targeted exit price, does he think it is time to sell, or has
McWilliams raised his exit target? What does McWilliams view as a "full
value" price range for Benchmark? What were analysts overlooking last year
that McWilliams brought to the attention of Next Inning readers, and what does
he see in store for Benchmark going forward? Is he expecting Benchmark to
exceed expectations when it reports earnings?
