Editor Paul McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:

-- Apple: Why might this be an extremely important week for Apple investors and Apple's CEO Tim Cook? In what surprising ways might Apple's forthcoming "iPad mini" represent a bold new move into the TV market? Earlier this year, as Apple made its first assault on the mid-$600s price level, McWilliams wrote that it was time to begin trimming exposure to Apple. With shares now down to $600 and a big week ahead, is it time for investors to buy Apple again?

-- Western Digital: What data leads McWilliams to believe Western Digital will report at or above the high end of its revised guidance for calendar Q3, but forecast calendar Q4 revenue below the consensus estimate of the covering analysts?

-- Texas Instruments:  McWilliams instantly 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.  What has changed since then and why does McWilliams think investors should consider buying TI today?  What is his target accumulation price and what does McWilliams view as a full value price range?

-- ARM Holdings: Many investors have heard of ARM Holdings, but few really understand the company's business model.  What is ARM's core business model? Should investors look at ARM as a semiconductor company or does that miss the big picture?  Is ARM's thrust into the server and PC market a material threat for Intel or should investors worry more about Intel taking market share from ARM in the smartphone and tablet market?  How do ARM's valuation metrics stack up against other tech companies?  Is there evidence that ARM is trading above a full and reasonable valuation?  What does McWilliams expect from ARM during the second half of 2012 and looking forward to 2013?

-- Broadcom: What markets are likely to drive Broadcom in the near-term?  Is Broadcom best viewed as a "swing trading" stock? At what price would he recommend accumulating shares and at what price should investors hedge or trim long positions?  How does Broadcom's normalized Free Cash Flow (FCF) compare to its reported non-GAAP earnings?  Why is this vitally important to understand in the case of Broadcom?

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate.  In March, just two days before the market peaked and began its over two-month slide, he warned Next Inning readers that stock prices were peaking and a correction was headed our way.  Following this, once the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally through the Q2 earnings season.  As it turned out, this was one of the strongest rallies the market has seen in a very long time.

However, following the close on September 14, 2012, McWilliams published his most recent Strategy Review and, in that, predicted again that the markets were due for another drop ahead of the November election.  This time he nailed the year-to-date high to the day.  If you are a tech investor, you'll want to be sure to read what McWilliams predicts will happen next.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.

McWilliams' highly acclaimed earnings previews are now being published, providing critical intelligence on dozens of tech sector firms ahead of their quarterly earnings reports. The reports, which identify the quarter's likely winners and losers, are available for free to Next Inning trial subscribers.

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 217% since its inception versus 58% for the S&P 500.
