Top 3 Home Security Companies In The US:
ADT Corp (NYSE:ADT) is the largest home security company in the US, and it’s a name that rings familiar with many consumers. And with a market capitalization of around $8B it’s not a company to be ignored either. Unlike the larger (Switzerland-based) Tyco International, this American home security company actually has a negative year to date performance for 2013. ADT might be more vulnerable because it’s also less diversified, focusing more exclusively on the home alarm installation and monitoring business. Growth might face headwinds as cable and internet providers are seeking to enter the home monitoring space.
Ascent Capital Group Inc (NASDAQ:ASCMA) is a much smaller home security company operating in the US, but it still has a market cap of over $1B. You might never have heard of Ascent Capital Group, but they are the 100% owners of Monitronics, which is a home security company operating in the United States in Canada. Interestingly, while ADT is making money, it has been facing margin ASCMA is losing money but margins are improving. It will be interesting to watch this story develop. But I’m not ready to put money to work on this idea just yet.
Napco Security Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:NSSC) is a micro cap home security company in the US. The stock is very thinly traded so you’ll want to be careful buying this home security company on the open market. Use limit orders when trying to execute transactions with Napco Security. Your orders will take longer to get filled but you’ll save yourself a large spread. If you’re thinking of investing in this mini-home security company, you should be aware that it’s up 78% this year! I’m not sure if it’s responsible to chase this stock up after such an advance. But a run-up in share price like that makes this home security companies rank as one of the best in the US.
