Can Sigma Designs be a high-performance boost to your portfolio?

The Making Money panel on the outlook for Sigma Designs.

By the way, the smart TV really is the thing. It drives what they call the over-the-counter OTT content: video games, apps, web browsing games, music, photo sharing -- all of it. Management’s got a great product line. They keep putting it on display.
