ADT Corp (NYSE:ADT) is one of the biggest losers yesterday, declining 17%. Bloomberg/Businessweek said the following about this sharp movement:
ADT Corp., the provider of security services for residences and small businesses, tumbled the most in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index after profit and sales trailed analysts’ estimates. The shares plunged 17 percent to $31.40 at the close in New York, the biggest decline since the Boca Raton, Florida-based company’s 2012 spinoff from Tyco International Inc. A 9.4 percent decline in new customers for the quarter ended Dec. 27 surprised investors who had long seen ADT as a relatively stable business, said Ian Zaffino, an analyst with Oppenheimer & Co. He said the company faces pressure from new home-security competitors such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp.
“Customer growth did not meet our expectations this quarter and we have implemented actions, including improvements in our dealer channel and lead generation process, to regain subscriber traction in the future,” ADT’s Naren Gursahaney said in a statement.
