In this article, I have evaluated two leading tech stocks, Switzerland-based Logitech International S.A. (LOGI) and GoPro, Inc. (GPRO), to determine the better investment. Based on a fundamental comparison of these stocks, LOGI appears to be the better pick for reasons explained throughout this article.
