Logitech (LOGI - Free Report) is riding on numerous growth drivers, including its cloud-based video-conferencing services, strategic product launches and restructuring actions. Solid performance across its Gaming business is also a key catalyst.

Growth Drivers

Growing adoption of new mobile platforms in both mature and emerging markets is fueling the demand for Logitech’s peripherals and accessories.

We note that robust sales across product categories and strong momentum in Video Collaboration, Gaming, and Tablet & Accessories businesses are helping the company boost its top line. The company’s cloud-based video conferencing services are also a key growth driver.

This apart, its acquired company Jaybird is helping Logitech expand its current product portfolio to address customers who prefer headphones over speakers, by constantly coming up with new products. Moreover, its recent acquisition of Blue Headphones is also expected to be a key growth driver.

Additionally, Logitech has been making efforts to increase returns to its investors through share repurchases and dividend hikes. In September this year, Logitech announced that its shareholders will be paid a higher dividend, almost 10% more than last year. Such initiatives enhance shareholders’ confidence in the stock. This apart, Logitech’s solid financial health also allows it to take up acquisitions to boost core business areas.
