On CAPS, 94% of the 1,019 members who have rated Logitech believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.  

A couple of months ago, one of those Fools, krd07e, nicely summed up the bull case for our community:

Logitech to me is similar to buying a land rover. Its foreign and great quality. As Peter Lynch said in his book all you have to do is find a quality product that people would pay more for. Logitech is just that. ...

Logitech's niche is in the quality and their ability to transition products in the market to work better with other technologies and the user. I believe it is only a matter of time before Logitech impresses us with new products, but for now this high-growth, medium risk stock is going to outperform the market over the next two to four years.

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Logitech may not be your top choice.
