The 5G boom is upon us.
This monstrous $1.3 billion story that could provide us with speeds up to 100x faster than 4G networks. Speed like that is a game-changer.
When 3G hit, it gave the world access to mobile television and video on demand. As a result, stocks like Broadcom soared more than 240%. Qualcomm jumped more than 260%.
Then 4G hit, and stocks like Crown Castle jumped more than 540%.
Now 5G is Rolling Out
Companies will begin to roll out 5G, or 5th generation mobile networks. The goal is to provide quicker Internet speeds for users. The other objective of 5G is to help usher in the next wave of human-technology interaction, such as with the Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous cars.
4G has a download speed of 100 megabits per second.
But that’s nothing compared to the 10,000 megabits per second that 5G can handle. That’s 100 times faster than 4G, and would be under significant demand.
By 2035, about $12.3 trillion worth of goods and services will be enabled by 5G networks, and the rollout of 5G will add approximately $3 trillion to the worldwide GDP.
Our #1 Takeover Target for March
On September 10, 2018, a tiny biotech firm won a patent on a new treatment that can “Cut & Paste” any disease from your body. The Nobel Prize Committee called it “The Holy Grail of Medicine.” This under-the-radar company is not yet a household name.
One Stock to Consider Now for the 5G Boom
As smartphones and other digital devices get smarter and more numerous — and as the applications they run generate ever more data — the wireless network that connects them must change to keep pace.
That’s why telecommunications giants like Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint are racing to roll out the fifth generation of wireless network technology, says NBC News.
It’ll help provide faster speed.
In many cases, data transfer speeds could be up to 10x faster than 4G. That means faster transmission of images and videos.
We’ll see shorter delays, and increased connectivity, too.
As this is rolled out, some of the top stocks to watch, include:
American Tower Corporation (AMT) is one of the best ways to trade the 5G story. AMT, one of the largest global REITs, is a leading independent owner, operator and developer of multitenant communications real estate with a portfolio of over 170,000 communications sites, which it leases out to mobile carriers.
Dycom Industries (DY) makes the cell towers for major carriers to prepare for 5G technology. And Ceragon Networks (CRNT) provides wireless backhaul solutions that enable cellular operators and other wireless service providers to deliver voice and data services worldwide.
All three are worth watching on the 5G story.
