TE Connectivity Ltd. (TEL) is a global industrial technology leader that provides a broad range of connectivity and sensor solutions, proven in the harshest environments, enabling transportation, industrial applications, medical technology, energy, data communications and residential homes.
The company generated 56% of its revenue from Transportation Solutions, 31% from Industrial Solutions and 13% from Communications Solutions in 2020.

Analysts have a mixed opinion of the stock following earnings. Cowen & Co. believes that near-term auto production remains the key risk given supply chain issues at customers, but with other areas on the uptick, they see the potential for multi-year 20% growth margins.
The company raised its quarterly dividend by 4.2% to $0.50 per share, which represents a 1.51% forward yield. The dividend is payable on June 4, 2021 to shareholders on record as of May 21, 2021.
