After reporting an EPS beat and in-line revenue this morning, Adtran (ADTN +4.5%) guided on its CC for Q1 revenue to be flat to down by a mid-single digit percentage Q/Q.

Though the consensus is for revenue to be down less than 1% Q/Q to $158.8M, investors are taking heart in Adtran's forecast, given it follows warnings from several telecom equipment names.

A slew of telecom equipment and component/chip vendors followed Adtran higher today. JDSU +3.1%. NPTN +4.6%. FNSR +2.3%. [CIEN] +2.1%. ALLT +2.6%. PKT +1.8%. CALX +1.7%.
