Jamba has a fan in Dougherty

  • Jamba (JMBA) shoots higher after catching an upgrade from Dougherty to a Buy rating.
  • The company hasn't been a favorite name in the sector with competition in the smoothie market intensifying and the winter weather mix unfavorable to store traffic, but Dougherty sees value at the sub-$12 level for shares.

  • By providing new healthy choices in which Jamba
    has exclusive rights although made by other food
    firms will increase the Jamba name recognition.
    Note how Wendy and KF are constantly offering
    new choices. There also should be a connection
    with vitamins and protein.

  • JMBA is a MUCH better, focused company than when the stock was at it's highs. Market will need time to catch up to the wellness focus the company is embarking on. Mgmt has shares that they don't want to see decrease. There has been some minor Insider buying. 'Buying straw hats in winter' is an axiom I live by. I am long and strong JMBA until summer. If housing craters, interest rates increase, the FED pulls back on the money sloshing through the system, or there is some unforeseen economic shock all bets are off, but isn't that the case with everything these days?
