Northward Estimate Revisions: Analysts have raised the estimates for fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2023 in the past 60 days, reflecting their confidence in the company. During the same period, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal 2022 and 2023 moved 30 cents and 28 cents north, respectively.

Positive Earnings Surprise History: Logitech has an impressive earnings surprise history. The company outpaced estimates in all of the trailing four quarters, delivering an outstanding average earnings surprise of 114.3%.

Growth Drivers: This Switzerland-based company is benefiting from strong momentum in the video collaboration, gaming, and creativity & productivity businesses. It has been able to leverage its software and go-to-market capabilities to drive market share gains and growth.

Notably, the company had registered a whopping 117% surge in fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 revenues and 245% jump in non-GAAP earnings per share. The top and bottom lines also surpassed the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate.

Logitech has been gaining from elevated demand for its Video Collaboration tools, mainly driven by the surging work-from-home and learn-from-home trends. Also, the PC peripheral market is witnessing strong traction, which is aiding top-line growth. Additionally, demand for gaming products has shot up on the growing popularity of online video games and eSports amid the stay-at-home scenario.

We believe the thriving cloud-based video conferencing services will continue to be the key catalyst. Rising adoption of new mobile platforms in both mature and emerging markets will further fuel demand for Logitech’s peripherals and accessories. Moreover, partnerships with cloud providers like Zoom Video Communications ZM, Microsoft MSFT and Alphabet GOOGL are major positives for the company.

Time to Invest in Legal Marijuana

If you’re looking for big gains, there couldn’t be a better time to get in on a young industry primed to skyrocket from $17.7 billion back in 2019 to an expected $73.6 billion by 2027.

After a clean sweep of 6 election referendums in 5 states, pot is now legal in 36 states plus D.C. Federal legalization is expected soon and that could be a still greater bonanza for investors.
