  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of ADTRAN have outperformed the industry to which it belongs over the last three months. The company has an impressive earnings history having surpassed estimates in each of the last four quarters. ADTRAN’s efforts to reward shareholders also raise optimism. The company continues to impress with its lucrative product offering and solutions which are some of the best in the industry. The company's efforts to expand internationally are also encouraging.
