American Tower (NYSE:AMT) isn’t a massive company like AT&T (NYSE:T) or Verizon (NYSE:VZ), but that allows the company to stay lean and operate in a more focused manner. This wireless and broadcast networking company owns and operates communications towers that other media and telecom stocks can lease.

It’s a nice gig to be the middle man, since that allows AMT to generate almost twice the revenue per employee that the behemoths in the space do.
