Verizon iPhone Winners

Stocks in this article: AAPL VZ QCOM ALU CSCO JNPR ERIC

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When it comes to playing Verizon iPhone stocks, Apple (AAPL), Verizon (VZ) and Qualcomm (QCOM) have been touted as the most likely to see upside.

But there are other, less-obvious stocks that stand to gain when the Verizon iPhone sales launch opens to the general public on Thursday morning.

Verizon, which enjoyed record sales on its first day of iPhone pre-orders last week, could impact a host of networking companies, said Mark McKechnie, a telecom equipment analyst at Gleacher & Company.

" Ericsson (ERIC), Juniper (JNPR) and Cisco (CSCO) will tangentially benefit from the increased traffic," he told TheStreet. "A smartphone probably uses ten times the bandwidth of a feature phone and the iPhone is at the high end of that -- Verizon is already talking about throttling back heavy users of data ."

McKechnie said that Ericsson is well-positioned thanks to its base stations and back-haul networking infrastructure, while Cisco and Juniper could enjoy increasing demand for their routers and switches.

Mike Walkley, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, thinks that Ericsson, in particular, will benefit from Verizon increasing its network capacity, along with wireless equipment specialist Powerwave (PWAV) and Alacatel-Lucent (ALU).

Alcatel-Lucent recently clinched a $4 billion contract with Verizon Wireless to support its 3G network expansion and the telco's 4G build-out. Ericsson is also working with Verizon around 4G, while Powerwave is said to provide the telecom giant with broadband antennas and amplifiers.

Powerwave has not yet responded to TheStreet's request for comment on this story.
