McWilliams covers these topics and more in his recent reports:

– To say McWilliams has not pulled any punches in his coverage of Hewlett-Packard would be an understatement. While he didn’t agree with everything former CEO Mark Hurd did, McWilliams maintained a bullish view of the stock throughout his tenure. However, when news of his termination hit the wires, he quickly reversed his position and advised Next Inning readers it was time to sell HP at its then current price of $43.50. As time moved forward, McWilliams grew even more negative on HP and was highly critical of its temporary strategy to divorce its market-leading position in personal computing. Now that HP has hired Meg Whitman of eBay fame to take over as CEO and announced its intent to hold tight to its personal computing strategy, does McWilliams think it’s time to accumulate shares of HP again or does he think the core problems at HP run too deep for Whitman to solve in the near term?

– McWilliams reminds readers in his extensive earning preview that Analog Devices’ upcoming report will be very this quarter. Consensus estimates from the covering analysts suggest Wall Street expects Analog Devices to forecast a 3% sequential revenue decline for its January ending quarter. Does McWilliams think Analog Devices will live up to this expectation or that it will guide for a sharper decline? In his preview, McWilliams describes four factors that he believes will work to Analog Devices’ advantage going forward and one that will benefit stockholders as revenue declines. What are these factors and do they lead McWilliams to conclude Analog Devices merits consideration as a “strategic” investment?

– Why are the emerging “Internet of Things” (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) trends critical stories that tech investors need to investigate right now? Forecasts suggest these two trends will lead to billions of new “connected” devices – far more than even the total sales of cell phones. What are the strengths and weaknesses for the three largest companies that appear to be best positioned to address these markets? Given a choice between Broadcom, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments, which company does McWilliams view as being the best positioned to dominate these new markets?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning’s model portfolio has returned 265% since its inception versus 34% for the S&P 500.
