GigaMedia Is Launching A Cloud Service And Has $100 Million In Cash

The Covestor Concentrated GARP portfolio had a poor month of returns in February as the model lost 0.7% for the month (net of fees), far less than the S&P 500 Index, which rose by .8%.

The new additions to the portfolio performed well in my opinion, and shock of shocks, we even got a little bump from GigaMedia (GIGM). Regarding the near future, sentiment continues to improve as investors are starting to warm up to the idea stocks are attractive relative to other asset classes.

The lingering question remains about the ultimate inflationary aspects of the various monetary stimulus measures governments all over the globe have implemented.  Near term, at least in the markets view, the positive results outweigh the potential problems.

GigaMedia: With $100 million of cash on the balance sheet, its new Gigacloud business should begin operations in March.  In my opinion, if the valuation would just get to the cash on the balance sheet, the stock would double.

Digital Globe (DGI) is a satellite provider of commercial earth imagery and Information services.  Digital Globe reported four quarter earnings which were better than expected.

In addition, they make sound systems for a wide variety of customers, from movie studios, theatres, and network and satellite television providers.  The company reported earnings which were better than expected estimates:

Jamba Juice (JMBA) is a health food and beverage retailer with a presence in 26 states domestically, as well as operations in Canada, the Philippines, and South Korea. Jamba Juice reported earnings on March 5, 2012 which were in line with expectations. They also announced a new franchise agreement for development in Mexico:
