On CAPS, 95% of the 812 members who have rated Jamba believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include steveadl and slyvestorethecat.

Late last year, steveadl tapped Jamba as a particularly juicy pick: "Plenty of potential through; franchising, international growth, licensing partnerships. They need to sort out the domestic front first though and move to a more franchise based model, which they are in the process of doing."

Over the next five years, Jamba is even expected to grow its bottom line at a 17.5% annual pace. That's faster than giants in the smoothie space McDonald's (10.1%) and Starbucks (16.9%), as well as other specialty restaurant stocks like Cheesecake Factory (Nasdaq: CAKE) (13.9%), P.F. Chang's (Nasdaq: PFCB) (14.9%), and Tim Hortons (NYSE: THI) (15%).

CAPS member slyvestorthecat kindly updated Fools last week on Jamba's growth story:

The ship is going in the right direction with the great leadership of James White and his staff. Any day now they will launch their new energy drinks products with NESTLE as their partner. ...

growth and [same-store sales] will be the key in the next 2 qtrs, I think by summertime jamba juice will be around $5 per share and going higher. coconut water with [PepsiCo] again should be available in mid FEB.

dont forget CEO White said they will add another 50 to 70 stores in the USA and another 2 to 3 international deals.
