Needham & Company maintains a 'Hold' on ADTRAN (NASDAQ: ADTN).

Analyst, Richard Valera, said, "We find recent concerns of a weak 1Q12 that had pressured ADTN shares to have been well founded, as the company pre-announced a 1Q miss of surprising magnitude. Although a significant portion of the miss was apparently due to timing/temporary issues, it remains too soon to call what level revenue will rebound to. Acknowledging the shares look inexpensive assuming revenue/earnings rebound to historical levels, given the uncertainty regarding the magnitude/timing of this rebound we maintain our rating."

Needham lowers FY12 EPS estimate fro $2.35 to $2.10 and FY13 from $2.61 to $2.58.
