On CAPS, 96% of the 967 members who have rated Logitech believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include tonykau and All-Star asuram54, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community.

Just last week, tonykau brought Logitech's slumping stock price to our community's attention: "Currently beaten down on decreasing volume, showing signs of trend exhaustion and is poised for at least a short term rebound."

Over the next five years, Logitech is even expected to grow its bottom line at a solid rate of 14.2%. That's faster than listed rivals Cisco (10.4%), HP (9.6%), and Microsoft (10.3%).

CAPS All-Star asuram54 elaborates on the Logitech bull case:

Zero debt and good cash flow ... they make the products that make the internet experience better. LOGI should continue to grow and evolve with the computing industry. Could see this as a possible takeover target for a huge cash-hoarding technology company looking to expand ... maybe HP or Dell.
