This is one of my STARZ.Here is the thought process on this STAR: a) Divided rate over Zerob) 3 Year Beta between -5 & +3c) 15% + Insider ownershipd) No greater than -50% Growth rate for the last 3 years (tought= last couple of years so goo that insiders are still owning the stocks)e) Current CAPS rating between 3 Stars & 5 StarsOpen to all Industries and Sectors screened this down to just 250 stocks. I like round numbers. 12 of them I already own through other screening tools. I tend to be somewhat conservative but looking for 3 things at this point in my investing:1. Stability & Strength2. Yield and Modest Growth3. Strong Position within a sector regardless of whether the entire sector is strong or not. Each sector has to perform to some degree for the whole world economy to function. I am looking for 5 or more years down the road, ROI, and Growth.Not looking for rockets, just stars. This is a Star!!
So many rural areas in the U.S. are underdeveloped in the cell service market. This company's growth strategy is basically without substantial competition in many areas of the U.S. Good longer term prospects.

ATNI offers wireless and wired phone service in the US, Guyana, US Virgin Islands, Bermuda and others. They face stiff competition in all of these markets. They've even lost subscription base in Guyana. However, they work hard at managing the company for cash flow and operating income. Operating income has grown 17% yoy.I like to see expectations of earnings growth. ATNI had earnings ttm of $2.54. Expectations in '08 are 2.27 while '09 expectations are 2.45. On the other hand, they've beaten expectations four quarters running. The current price of the stock reflects the pessimistic outlook of reduced earnings in the upcoming 18 months. If they continue to beat expectations, continue to pay dividends regularly, continue to show excellent earnings, balance and cash flow sheets, This company will beat the S&P 500 handily. Double bagger? Nope. Stiff competition in their home markets will keep their earnings growth in the single digits for several years to come.
Testing a portfolio of companies that start with the letter "A".
came up in a very exclusive stock screen
With the continents continually growing and people relocating I believe that this stock will only continue to grow
Sales are going great with there VI and Ghana Ventures
It doesn't move fast, but is consistent grower year over year - 200% in the past 4 years - and it pays good div to boot. Barring radical political changes, this virtual monopoly will keep going for awhile longer.
Good EPS growth, solid margins. Revenue growth of 65%, pays a decent dividend. Good industry sector and the stock is under accumulation. Looks good if it breaks 31.
Phone network with good numbers.
Atlantic Tele-Network (ATNI) provides wireless and wireline telecommunications services in the Caribbean and North America. With international long distance voice and data services contributing maximum to the revenues, its other offerings include, local telephone and data and wireless services. An exclusive provider of domestic wireline local and long distance telephone services in Guyana, ATNI is strategically moving towards inorganic growth initiative. Endorsing the same, its revenue in the first nine months of 2006 soared 60%, year to year, aided by the acquisitions of SoVerNet, Inc., wireless roaming networks in Northeast Missouri and Central Arizona, and a 95% stake in Commnet Wireless. Following the same, ATNI has been able to expand its emphasis on its wireless operations in smaller, niche markets with a manageable competitive environment. The company is also making additional investments in its US based rural wireless network and in its Vermont local telephone and data business, which will come handy to add to its existing subscriber base. Feeling the heat, ATNI is contemplating further expansion of its GSM network capacity and coverage in Guyana region to tap this under penetrated market. Going onwards, ATNI continues to trade as a revenue momentum story as recent acquisitions are expected to steal the show. The company’s defensive characteristics envisage a prominent platform, given enough free cash flows amid a low debt component in its capital structure, rendering significant scope to enhance shareholder value
Ready for breakout on higher volume. Has found repeated support at 50 day average. Up days have usually high volume, down days have lighter volume. Just paid dividend.
