2 Easy Picks To Profit From The 5G Revolution
There’s a massive revolution currently taking place. And it’s by no means a secret. In fact, there’s a considerable amount of hype behind it. You’ll find hundreds, even thousands of articles on it. It’s being promoted as “world-changing,” quantum leap,” and the “next big thing.”
I’m of course talking about 5G — an advanced wireless technology that began deployment just this year.
If you’re not familiar, 5G stands for the fifth-generation wireless network. But simply calling this the next step up from the current 4G iteration is selling it short.
The Vast Promise Of 5G
5G will be anywhere from 10 times to 100 times faster than 4G. For instance, you’ll be able to download a season’s worth of Game of Thrones in a matter of seconds.
But the excitement surrounding 5G isn’t just about being able to browse the internet on your smartphone at a faster clip. The applications for 5G are endless — everything from interconnections among the billions of objects comprising the Internet of Things (IoT) to artificial intelligence (AI) to transportation within and between new megacities.
It could improve healthcare more in the next 10 years than all the advances over the past 100 years. For instance, it will facilitate complex surgeries via virtual and enhanced reality. It will change the ancient practice of farming… as well as banking, finance, manufacturing, automobiles… the list goes on.
Simply put, it will disrupt every industry, business, and municipality.
This seemingly innocent “upgrade” of our communication network has generated a heap of excitement. And for good reason… It will change life as we know it. We won’t purchase groceries the same, our transportation to work will be different, even your casual stroll in the park won’t be the same.
But here’s why we, as investors, can’t ignore this revolution…
The total global 5G market is expected to reach $277 billion by 2025. That’s an astronomical compounded annual growth rate of 111% from today’s value.
How You Can Profit
In short, this massive trend will bring a tidal wave of profits to investors who get in early on the right players. There’s likely a small company out there that we’ve never heard of that will become a household name, and a multi-billion-firm, because of 5G.
Luckily, as I said earlier, 5G will disrupt every industry and business. So there’s a good chance that more than a few of your holdings will either be directly or indirectly affected by 5G.
That’s certainly true of my Capital Wealth Letter portfolio. In fact, we have a few positions that are directly concentrated in 5G. I can’t reveal the names of these these picks today, because I have to be fair to my premium subscribers. But for starters, here are a couple of “no-brainer” plays on 5G that you may want to consider…
1. The first is chipmaker Intel (Nasdaq: INTC). Although the company recently divested its 5G smartphone modem business, the company still has a strong presence in 5G.
The success of 5G depends on a broad ecosystem, and Intel will be a valuable player that forms the foundation of that ecosystem thanks to its massive research and development (R&D) budget.
Between 18% to 20% of Intel’s total sales are earmarked for R&D. Last year, that came out to a nominal figure of over $15 billion. Of course, not every dollar goes into 5G, but you can bet it has dedicated a good chunk towards this new technology.
5G will produce astronomical amounts of data that will need to be processed and analyzed. Intel’s semiconductors will likely be at the core of many of the computers processing that data. The company is also a leader in AI, IoT (internet of things) and cloud computing, all of which will be prominent in 5G. In other words, Intel will be embedded throughout the 5G value chain.
2. Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO), is what I like to call “backbone of the internet”. Naturally, this also gives investors exposure to 5G. The company is focusing on providing a smooth transition for clients operating on the cloud to utilize the 5G network. Of course, it will also be a major supplier of switches, routers, modems, and servers that will support 5G.
Action To Take
Like I said, there are many companies that will be involved with 5G. So the two I’ve just discussed today are just the tip of the iceberg…
Plus, INTC and CSCO aren’t exactly unknown commodities. Just about every investor is familiar with these two names. That’s why, if you want to reap the BIG rewards that will come with the 5G revolution, you have to look under the radar…
Over at Capital Wealth Letter, we already have exposure to 5G. And I plan to discuss some of the ways we’ll be looking to profit even more in the days ahead – and why you should, too.
Meanwhile, reports indicate that Elon Musk’s secretive Starlink satellite internet service is already creating a MASSIVE buzz — and could come out of beta as soon as next month…
And even though Starlink is “off limits” to regular investors… we’ve uncovered a “Silent Partner” that gets you in on the ground floor… lightyears ahead of other investors.
