-- Apple: Does McWilliams expect Apple to rally to $600 - or even $700 - in the wake of its earnings report this week? Earlier this year, when Apple made its first run to the mid-$600s, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was time to take profits and reiterated that view in the fall as Apple moved above $700.  In his new earnings preview covering Apple, McWilliams reveals why Apple pulled back sharply from its September 2012 high, but more importantly, McWilliams' outlines his outlook for Apple in 2013.  Here he shares what Apple needs to do to gain traction against Android with its iPhone, how he thinks Apple will fare in the expanding tablet market and specifically what he looks for Apple to do in the TV market. This report is a "must read" for all Apple investors and analysts.

-- Google: Last April, when Wall Street was all abuzz about Facebook, McWilliams reiterated his opinion that it was an IPO investors should avoid, and stated that anyone considering Facebook should instead buy Google.  At the time Google was trading for $625, and has since moved up more than 12%. Facebook, on the other hand, opened trading a month later at $42.05, and has since dropped nearly 30%. Is McWilliams expecting further upside from Google? What does Google have that even Apple can't replicate?

-- 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 grow profit margins in spite of dismal Wall Street forecasts.  With Cree now trading in the mid-$30s, does McWilliams think the investment has played out or is there reason to continue holding?  What does McWilliams see in store for Cree going forward?

-- AMD: Since McWilliams advised AMD investors to sell in early July when AMD was trading just over $6, AMD shares have fallen dramatically. Are shares now trading at a bargain price, or should investors continue to steer clear? What factors are working in AMD's favor right now and what challenges is it facing? What options does McWilliams see for AMD going forward and what companies does he think would pay a nice premium to buy AMD?

-- Texas Instruments:  McWilliams turned a cold shoulder to Texas Instruments when it announced it would buy National Semi.  According to McWilliams, TI was overpaying and he pulled no punches when he said investors should sell at the then current mid-$30 price.  However, when the price finally dipped into the mid-$20s, he advised Next Inning readers it was time to buy.  What has changed at TI and what other semiconductor companies are threatened by these changes?  What is his target accumulation price and what does McWilliams view as a full value price range?

Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning 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.  What led McWilliams to predict Apple's decline late in 2012 and what does he now predict for the stock in 2013?  In recent reports, McWilliams also offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers.
