TiVo (TIVO - Get Report) caught a bid Tuesday after brokerage First Albany initiated the digital-recorder company at a strong buy. TiVo shares were last up 63 cents, or 11%, to $6.23. First Albany advised clients to buy the stock in the wake of a recent contract with Comcast (CMCSA - Get Report), saying TiVo is potentially the best horse in the DVR race. The brokerage said the company's current results look worse than they are because of its efforts to grow its hardware base.
