Neil here. Happy Friday!
Coronavirus is the elephant in the room these days. It would be crazy not to address it regularly – it’s basically the only thing anyone talks about anymore.
But I’ve done my best these past weeks to focus on the silver linings… the rare but much needed bright spots that will help us, and the global economy, get through this.
And it’s no secret by now: the companies that will come out of this one top are those that provide software-based solutions for working, learning, and socializing remotely.
In both public and private markets, we’ve seen colossal waves of funding pour into these spaces since the start of 2020. And I don’t see that slowing down anytime soon. As I’ve said before, I think we’re several months out from going back to our pre-COVID lifestyles; and even then, my guess is that many people will opt to hang onto their home offices permanently.
That makes right now a great time to be on the lookout for companies that fit the bill. Look for unique solutions to the problems learning and working from home create, and you’ll probably be set up to do just fine.
But there’s a whole other side to this paradigm shift – a side that nobody seems too concerned about. All this tech that’s seeing huge upticks in their user bases and traffic… all the teleconferencing apps we use to stay connected at work… all that extra streaming we’re doing at night… what do they all have in common?
They’re all powered by the internet. In fact, without the internet, none of these solutions could exist at all. And the internet is experiencing some intense growing pains right about now.
If you haven’t experienced it yourself yet, you probably will soon. Millions of Americans are currently facing outages and shortages as a direct result of the coronavirus. To put it simply, we’re all on the internet a lot more than we used to be – the average is 24 hours a week.
Data usage is up; so are video streaming, online gaming, teleconferencing, and dozens of other web-based activities we’re leaning on to get through this pandemic. And it’s cracking the foundations of our internet coverage.
We need to upgrade the tech we use, and fast – or else we could risk losing our connection to the outside world entirely.
That upgrade is 5G. You know about 5G tech; you know that it’s faster and more reliable than what we have now; and you’ve heard it’s coming… but you don’t know when.
Despite the fact that big companies have funneled more than $100 billion into 5G in the past few years, it seems like it took the back burner a few months back. But coronavirus has proven to be the ultimate test of our current system. And we’re failing.
5G isn’t just about loading Candy Crush faster. And it’s not just about working from home, either. 5G technology can and will save lives. It’ll be used in security operations… in hospitals… in schools… virtually everywhere. And experts are saying that widespread rollouts could accelerate very quickly, very soon.
Remember: wherever there’s rapid growth, there’s also an opportunity to make money. And this particular revolution could be one of the biggest profit-generating projects ever for investors who know where to look.
I’d suggest starting out with expert research from my colleague, Michael Robinson. He’s a 35-year Silicon Valley veteran and is considered to be one of the top tech financial analysts around. In the past few years alone, he’s handpicked 100 trade opportunities that closed out double- or triple-digit gains. And he has his eye on some tiny, under-the-radar companies that could explode in value as 5G sweeps the world.
He’s put together some of the most comprehensive research on the topic I’ve ever seen. If you’re considering investing in 5G tech… or if you just want to know more about why it’s so important… Just click here to learn what he thinks.
We’ll talk soon.
Until next time,
