I believe that a communications company like Verizon would be a great partner with ADT. they are both in the wire and wi-fi business. I don't believe a hedge fund would be a contributing patner, just a taker.
This company is losing revenue to the cable companies like COX, Verizon, Comcast, Time Warner etc. All are offering some sort of secuirty service similar to ADT now. ADT has numerous competitors now, so they will have to lower prices to try to keep customers. This could be the beginning of the last pop before bad erarnings / bad guidance takes this stock quickly back into the mid 30's and lower.
