How ADTRAN (ADTN) Stock Stands Out in a Strong Industry?

Zacks Equity Research

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is ADTRAN Inc. (ADTN). This is because this security in the Communication Equipment industry is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Communication Equipment industry as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 10 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.

Meanwhile, ADTRAN is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.

In fact, over the past month, current quarter estimates have risen from 14 cents per share to 15 cents per share, while current year estimates have risen from 96 cents per share to $1.03 per share. This has helped ADTN to earn a Zacks Rank 2 (Buy), further underscoring the company’s solid position.

So, if you are looking for a decent pick in a strong industry, consider ADTRAN. Not only is its industry currently in the top third, but it is seeing solid estimate revisions as of late, suggesting it could be a very interesting choice for investors seeking a name in this great industry segment.
