Financial writer Steve Halpern, who has covered the newsletter industry for nearly three decades, has called the Next Inning State of Tech report "the most ambitious project" he's ever seen in the investment world.

This report is a must read for investors and analysts focusing on technology right now.

Over the past decade, well over a thousand Wall Street analysts, money managers and institutional investors have joined thousands of savvy private investors in gaining key tech industry insights and intelligence from industry veteran and celebrated investor Paul McWilliams in his role as editor of Next Inning Technology Research.

Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:

-- Marvell: A year ago, at the start of 2013, McWilliams presented what he thought was an extremely bullish case for Marvell when the stock was trading for only $7.26.  He reiterated and built on the bull case as we moved through 2013, and in his recently published State of Tech report, he cited the single factor that he thinks stands between Marvell and a share price of $20.  Marvell closed 2013 as one of the best performing semiconductor stocks and has continued to move higher in 2014.  What is the factor still holding Marvell shares back and what are the cornerstones of McWilliams' bull case for Marvell in 2014?

-- JDS Uniphase: McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to take profits in JDS Uniphase in 2013 when the stock moved into the mid-$15s and suggested that investors move the funds into Finisar.  This call obviously worked out very well.  As the price for JDS Uniphase traded with its typical volatility, investors who followed McWilliams' swing trade ideas made even more. Looking ahead to 2014, what is a reasonable way to value the two stocks, and with that, which does McWilliams think has the most upside potential today?

-- Broadcom: Has Broadcom overcome the two negative factors that McWilliams said in early 2013 could work against Broadcom and its stockholders? Looking ahead to 2014, are Broadcom shares oversold, positioning them to rebound?

-- Juniper Networks: McWilliams suggested selling Juniper when its share price was nearly $40 in 2011 and remaining on the side until it dropped to $16.31 over a year later where he wrote it was time to buy again. What should Juniper investors do ahead of the company's earnings report this quarter?

-- Applied Materials:  When the price of Applied Materials was mired in the $10-$11 area in 2012, McWilliams boldly called it a strategic stock and predicted we would see Wall Street take notice of its important positioning as we moved through 2013.  Investors who took this advice saw the value of their investment in Applied Materials return a nearly 60% profit in 2013. How does the mega-merger between Applied Materials and Tokyo Electron shake up the semiconductor equipment sector? McWilliams provided insight into this important deal in his State of Tech report, including detailed analysis of the merger and its wide-ranging impact on the tech sector as a whole. Should investors consider accumulating shares of Applied Materials now?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 318% since its inception versus 103% for the S&P 500.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
