McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:

-- What are the challenges facing Flextronics today? Is Flextronics well-positioned to meet McWilliams' profitability goals for 2012? 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?

-- What has been behind Wall Street's negative view of Jabil?  Is Wall Street right in this view or is it still looking in the rearview mirror? What is the most intriguing thing about Jabil that investors should consider right now?  Does McWilliams believe Jabil is the best stock for investors wanting exposure to the EMS sector?  Which stock might McWilliams consider pairing with an investment in Jabil?

-- McWilliams was highly critical of Sanmina in early 2011 and termed management's comments as "over the top" when the stock was trading in the mid-teens.  Following this, Sanmina announced the departure of its president and COO. When the price of Sanmina finally bottomed in the fall of 2011, McWilliams suggested it was time to buy again.  Has Sanmina come a long way since making these changes? Does McWilliams expect Sanmina to rebound further, or is it time for investors to take profits?

-- Despite a poor performance by Benchmark in 2011, are there signs that the company is turning things around in 2012? What two potential factors could drive Benchmark's earnings notably above expectations in 2012?  Which stock in the contract manufacturing sector would McWilliams recommend pairing with Benchmark? What does McWilliams see as an estimated fair value target for Benchmark?

-- Is Wall Street valuing Celestica at a bargain price because of its exposure to Research in Motion?  How much exposure to RIM does Celestica actually have?  Are there other EMS companies with high exposure to RIM? Does Celestica merit consideration as an investment with strong potential upside?  What factors does McWilliams see in the Celestica equation that makes it a higher-risk investment relative to other EMS companies?  What is McWilliams' estimated fair value target for Celestica, and what stock does he think it should be paired with?
