NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Jamba Inc. (JMBA) are up 10.76% to $13.48 on very heavy trading volume following stronger than expected second quarter earnings, boosted by its new line of kale and chia seed juice sales that's helping accelerate growth as part of an overhaul for the smoothie company.
The company reported second quarter earnings of 44 cents per share, beating analysts' consensus estimate of 37 cents, and improving from earnings of 36 cents per share in the same quarter of 2013.
However, revenue of $64.2 million for the quarter was lower than the $67.8 million from the second quarter of 2013, and missed the consensus estimate of $64.4 million.
