The 5G revolution is coming, and that means it’s time to look for the best 5G stocks to buy to play this revolution.
First, let’s take a step back. What exactly is 5G?
5G is simply the 5th Generation (hence 5G) mobile network. It naturally follows 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G, and represents the new global wireless standard for internet connectivity.
And what will 5G do?
It will usher in a new era of unprecedented internet communications. Relative to 4G, 5G is way faster, with way more network capacity, far lower latency, way more capability, and better spectrum technology. That may sound like a mouthful. If so, just think this: 5G is new wireless technology that will make every internet-connected device faster, allow more devices to be connected to the internet at the same time, and allow all those devices to do more advanced things.
And why is 5G is a big deal?
Because, as a world, we’ve essentially “maxed out” 4G technology. We are at full capacity when it comes to how fast our phones can go, how many devices we can connect to the internet, and how many things those devices can do. As such, things like autonomous driving, the Internet-of-Things, and advanced cloud computing cannot reach their full potential until 5G is everywhere.
Accordingly, the widespread deployment of 5G technology over the next few years will have huge economic implications. The coming 5G revolution is expected to equate to $13.2 trillion dollars of global economic output by 2035. That is essentially an entire China’s worth of economic output.
Now that you understand that the 5G revolution will lead to some huge investment opportunities over the next few years, let’s take a deeper look at the best 5G stocks to buy right now:
Perhaps the most obvious of 5G stocks to buy is Verizon, since this is the U.S. wireless provider which will actually deploy 5G technology to end-market and end-devices.
First, Verizon has forever been the unchallenged leader in this market, offering the highest quality wireless 3G and 4G coverage. It reasons that the company is best positioned to extend that leadership with best-in-market 5G coverage.
Second, T-Mobile has complicated itself with the acquisition of Sprint. While this acquisition has long-term benefits, it also has near-term complications, which may prevent the company from fully capitalizing on its 5G opportunity.
Third, AT&T is burdened by a ton of debt. All of this debt could provide operational and investment challenges over the next few quarters.
Among U.S. wireless providers, Verizon is the best way to play the 5G boom.
