Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- Oracle: When Oracle fell into the high $20s last June, McWilliams wrote that the stock was clearly oversold.  We've since seen the price of Oracle recover significantly. What specific trends does McWilliams see developing that he thinks will favor Oracle?  Is Oracle's partnership with Salesforce.com an important development?  What is McWilliams' price target for Oracle and how much upside does it represent?

-- Corning: McWilliams' core investment thesis for Corning in 2013 was based on his opinion that the stock was trading well below its full value at the close of 2012. After the stock moved higher by 44% (including dividends) during 2013, is it time for investors to take profits?  What new potential upside drivers does McWilliams see coming into play in 2014?

-- HP: McWilliams has alerted investors to several swing trade opportunities in HP, including his most recent call that returned 30%. Are there now signs that HP's long-awaited turnaround has begun to take hold, making HP a candidate for longer-term investment? Does McWilliams think investors should consider adding shares of HP ahead of the company's next earnings report?

-- Texas Instruments: In line with the prediction McWilliams made five years ago, TI exited the mobile markets and has repositioned itself as an embedded processor solutions company. In what ways does this new direction put TI in the center of the new growth paradigm known as the "Internet of Things" or IoT? What two factors are driving this new paradigm, and why does McWilliams think TI is perfectly positioned to be a leader in the market? What data leads McWilliams to forecast that TI's depreciation costs will continue to plunge and with that, boost earnings above the consensus expectation?

-- Cypress: After suggesting that Next Inning readers sell Cypress when it popped up into the teens last year, McWilliams wrote that readers should wait patiently for the stock to dip below $9 before rebuilding a position.  It took a while, but Cypress hit McWilliams' buy price last fall and has since moved up 13%.  What leads McWilliams to write that Cypress is going through a transitional phase, and what does he expect from the company this year?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 321% since its inception versus 103% for the S&P 500.
