Better Stock Today Challenge: InvenSense vs. Seadrill

In the spirit of World Cup competition, we're holding our own tournament in search of the Better Stock Today. We're pitting 32 companies against each other and you, the reader, will determine the winner.

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.

Joel South, energy analyst at The Motley Fool, thinks Seadrill  (NYSE: SDRL  ) is more than worthy of your consideration today. 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.

Leaked: Apple's next smart device (warning, it may shock you)
Apple recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible. But the secret is out, and some early viewers are claiming its everyday impact could trump the iPod, iPhone, and the iPad. In fact, ABI Research predicts 485 million of this type of device will be sold per year. But one small company makes Apple's gadget possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!

    I like both of these stocks, and I own both in my portfolio. Invensense is a high growth flyer with great potential. Seadrill is a dividend beast that will continue to produce for years to come. Both have a place in anyone's portfolio. Tough to choose between the two because the each provide a completely different course towards investing. If I was closer to retirement, I would choose Seadrill for its dividend. If I was a 20 year old, Invensense would be my stock. Look for Invensense to be bought out in 3-5 years.
