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 new partnership with Salesforce.com an important development?  What is McWilliams' price target for Oracle and how much upside does it represent?

-- HP: McWilliams called a successful swing trade in HP with an exit before HP reported results for its July-ending quarter and then suggested that Next Inning readers stay on the sidelines.  As it turned out, the "yellow flag" of declining deferred revenue McWilliams cited in his preview of HP's earnings proved to be a valid warning.  In so many words, HP executives noted that very problem when lowering guidance for fiscal 2014.  With the price of HP still down, does McWilliams think it is time to buy again for anther swing trade or does he think it's better to avoid the stock at this juncture?

-- Texas Instruments: TI has recently repositioned itself as an embedded processor solutions company. In what ways does this new direction put TI in the center of a new growth paradigm centered on the emergence of what is known as the "Internet of Things?" What two factors are driving this new paradigm? What data leads McWilliams to write that free cash flow is a better way to view TI's earnings power than its reported profit?  What else can we gather from the free cash flow data that suggests we'll see TI's earnings move higher than analysts appear to expect in 2014 and beyond?  At what price would McWilliams add shares of TI?

-- Corning: Does McWilliams see upside drivers for Corning that aren't yet reflected in the stock price?  What does McWilliams see driving Corning's growth this year and what does the company have on tap that he thinks will continue the trend into 2014 and beyond?

-- Applied Materials:  When the price of Applied Materials was mired in the $10-$12 area last year 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.  How will 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, why the combined company is optimally positioned to leverage emerging demands for 3D semiconductor fabrication 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 297% since its inception versus 86% for the S&P 500.

Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. Steve Wilson, Citrix Vice President of Cloud,...
When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
