This week I’m seeking a prestigious and long-term dividend-paying stock from the technology business sector.
That technology sector has nineteen industries ranging from communication equipment, computers, consumer electronics, and contract manufacturing, to health and information technology and services to internet, scientific instruments, software, solar and all such technological marvels.
Today I’m reviewing a small-cap communication equipment company, named Adtran Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is ADTN.
Adtran Inc is engaged in providing networking and communications equipment. Its products enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures, worldwide.
The company operates through two segments, Network Solutions and Services & Support.
It offers access and aggregation solutions, including network management and subscriber services control and orchestration software within an SD-access architecture; SDN-controlled programmable network elements.
The company’s access and aggregation solutions also comprise cabinet and outside-plant enclosures and services.
In addition, it provides customer devices comprising broadband customer premise solutions.
Further, the company offers time division multiplexed and asynchronous transfer mode based aggregation systems and customer devices.
The company serves communications service providers, distributed enterprises and small and medium-sized businesses, public and private enterprises, and individual users.
Adtran, Inc. was founded in 1985 and is headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama.
I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like Adtran Inc. (ADTN):
Besides those three, four more keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.
But those first three primary keys, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.
