Today it's the round of 16, and InvenSense takes on Seadrill in our search for the better stock.
Tech analyst Max Macaluso believes one of the top reasons to be an InvenSense (NYSE:INVN) bull today has to do with the company's tremendous growth potential. This sensor specialist has already benefited from wider adoption of mobile devices, and looks poised to also benefit from the growing wearable technology trend. Couple that with its dedication to research and development, and InvenSense can be a market leader over the long term.

Successful investors have been building significant wealth for years by finding solid, high-dividend paying stocks. Seadrill sports an industry leading 10% yield and with solid contract coverage and a fleet of new drilling rigs, investors can count on Seadrill to be among the best offshore drillers in the world.
