McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:
-- Broadcom: With the price of Broadcom up sharply from where McWilliams thought it was a good buy last fall in the $20s, should investors plan on holding shares through its upcoming quarterly report? What will Broadcom's balance sheet look like with the NetLogic acquisition now completed? Would McWilliams buy, sell or hold today?
-- Cavium: What factors are behind Cavium's success in building strong design momentum? Is there a way to quantify Cavium's design base and explain why it is taking so long to produce revenue? Should investors be concerned that Wall Street's patience with Cavium is wearing thin? Is Cavium trading at a bargain price ahead of its upcoming earnings report?
-- Flextronics: What are the challenges facing Flextronics today? Is Flextronics well-positioned to meet McWilliams' profitability goals for its fiscal year ending March 2013? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Flextronics and how much upside does it represent from current prices? Does Flextronics merit consideration as a strategic investment or should investors view is as more of a short-term speculation?
-- FormFactor: After suggesting it was time to sell FormFactor last year when it was trading above $11, McWilliams suggested buying at $4.69 last December in anticipation of a quick pop into the high $5s. With that objective realized, does McWilliams think there's reason to hold out for more or just move on? Does a legacy of mismanagement at FormFactor mean the best option for the company now is to look for a buyer? How much of a premium would investors likely receive from a buyout offer?
-- Acme Packet: Was Acme overly conservative when it issued guidance during its last earnings report, suggesting the company may be poised to report "surprise" upside when it reports earnings this week? Does McWilliams expect that Acme shares could move solidly above $30 in the near term?
