Is Your Portfolio Secure With This Security Stock?

In terms of industry growth, the under-penetration of ADT's target markets for home security services is often touted as a strong driver of growth. Based on research from Parks Associates, home security penetration is estimated at 19% of U.S. households, significantly lower than other home services such as television and Internet, which are in 70-90% of households. However, consumers are generally unaware of technological advancements in the home security market and cost savings with less expensive IP-enabled security equipment. Ironically, an internet connection at home is now viewed as more important and less discretionary than a home security solution by consumers. According to a Barrons article in February this year, ADT could potentially acquire its competitors which are mostly owned by private equity firms.
