In today's first round match-up of The Motley Fool Better-Buy Tournament, Leapfrog squares off against Qualcomm in a battle to determine which stock is the better buy now. The 64-company tournament pits two Motley Fool analysts against each as they make the case for their stocks with the winner determined by you, the readers.
Once dominating the "edutainment" industry, Leapfrog Enterprises (NYSE:LF) has turned around its most-recently flailing operations with devices and apps that have won back consumer appeal. With its razor-razor blade model of selling children's devices and lucrative content, Motley Fool analyst Michael Finarelli believes the company is positioned to further innovate and grow its top and bottom lines well into the future.
Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner makes the case for Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) to advance to the next round because of its amazing ties to mobile growth. Qualcomm played an instrumental role in developing some of today's most important communications technologies. This legacy has left Qualcomm with one of the most impressive patent portfolios anywhere, which it uses to generate huge royalties in mobile. However, Qualcomm's also developed a leading mobile chip business, which, when combined with its patent business, allow it to be one of the most shareholder friendly companies in tech.
