A Trend No Election Can Stop
They’re still counting votes for the first time in some states. Neither mandatory, nor requested recounts have started yet, but the country seems to have accepted that we’ll have a new president come January.
Whether you voted for him or not, you’re probably wondering what the future holds for your finances. I mean, if you’re reading Wealth Daily, you’re obviously more in tune with the economy than the average Joe.
There's still a lot up in the air. If once all the votes are counted (and counted again) and Joe Biden really is the next president, what does that mean for your stock portfolio?
And if the Democrats get those two Senate seats in Georgia, what changes would a one-party government push through? How would those changes affect you and your finances?
Well, all I can do is guess about that. Maybe my guesses are a little more educated than others, but they’re still just guesses. Nobody can truly know what’s going to happen once all is said and done.
What I can tell you about with 100% accuracy, though, is a trend that no election can stop and no politician could kill even if they tried.
Reach Out and Touch Someone
I’m sure most of you remember that line from AT&T’s commercials in the late 1980s. Some of you might even remember it from Ma Bell’s advertisements in the 1970s.
The idea was to hit on the human desire to communicate with others. The campaign was intended to soften AT&T’s image (it was fast growing into a monopoly) and position the company as an indispensable part of American life.
And all those years later, I’d say it worked. AT&T and Verizon are the two biggest communications companies in the country, and both used to be part of the company that let you “reach out and touch someone.”
Now, I’m not telling you to go out and buy AT&T or Verizon stock; I’m just illustrating a point. Communication isn’t just a nice thing to have, it’s a human necessity.
Humans are gregarious by nature. That means we’re pack animals. We prefer to live in groups, and when we find ourselves cut off from the rest of the world, we start to run into issues.
Cabin fever is the one most of us can commiserate with. You’ve been stuck inside your house by yourself for days and you’re starting to go stir-crazy. You just need to get out and do something, talk to someone, see other people.
The thing is, although pretty much everyone in the U.S. has access to a phone (thanks in part to AT&T and Verizon), the majority of the country is still without reliable internet access.
You can reach out and touch someone over the phone, but you can’t see them in a video chat. And while that might sound like a luxury (or a “First World problem”), over the past year, I’ve personally had friends who had to say goodbye to loved ones via video chat.
Trust me, as hard as that was for them, only being able to do it over the phone would have been a million times harder.
That’s something this pandemic has brought to light: the urgent need for a nationwide high-speed communications network.
According to a recent FCC study, 19 million Americans still lack access to broadband service at the minimum speeds required to be counted by the Commission. And one-quarter of households living in rural America have no access to the internet at all.
But that’s all going to change. It has to.
An “All-Access” Network
You probably think I’m talking about 5G at this point. But that’s only part of the picture. Sure, 5G will revolutionize wireless connectivity for millions.
But the other half of the equation is something entirely different. While 5G will give us the ability to send immense amounts of data at blazing speeds over the airwaves, the other half provides the physical connections for getting that wireless data into our wired connections.
And that half of the equation is made up entirely of fiber optic cables. Fiber optics are the wires of the future. And they’re actually not even wires at all.
In fact, they’re tiny strands of pulled glass or plastic drawn out to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. They transmit light from one end to the other and that light can be read by machines at each end and converted into electrical impulses.
They’re the fastest physical connection we have and critical to successful 5G deployment. You see, one fiber cable can transmit 1 petabit of data per second over a distance of many miles. A petabit is 1 million megabits.
For comparison, cable internet connections (like the kind you get from Comcast) typically range from 20 to 100 megabits per second.
So, when I say fiber is fast, I mean blazing fast. And when I say it’s critical to 5G deployment, I mean 5G can’t happen without a strong fiber network to build on.
But the combination of the two will finally give the whole country equal access to a true high-speed network.
The Unknown Network
Needless to say, companies are racing to build out a fiber-optic infrastructure so that 5G can finally be fully deployed.
But one small company that 90% of the investing public probably hasn’t ever heard of spent the past decade building out the nation’s largest fiber-optic network. And now it’s got every major communications company — from AT&T to Comcast to Verizon — backed into a corner.
Those companies need its fiber network if they want to have a functional 5G network, and they know it.
Already, every single major wireless carrier has contracts in place to lease space on this company’s fiber-optic network for its 5G antennas. Even the U.S. government is getting in on the action and renting out a piece of the company’s fiber.
And the contracts are just going to keep growing and growing as more and more companies and citizens move to take advantage of the speeds 5G will offer.
In fact, just this year alone, the company has already taken in over half a billion dollars in payments from companies that need its fiber network.
Every time they want to use it, they’ve got to pay a little bit. The best way I can describe it is a tollbooth on a highway. If you want to get off the backroads and get onto the highway, you’ve got to pay a toll.
And that’s just what this company is doing. If someone wants to get off the backroads of the internet and get on the new super-highway, they’ve got to pay a toll.
You’d think that any company with such a dominant market position would be trading at $100, maybe even $1,000 a share. But remember I said that the vast majority of investors have no idea this company even exists.
And that’s why it’s still trading for less than $10!
That’s right... for less than the cost of a movie ticket (to a movie you can’t go to a theatre and see right now anyway), you can get invested in the company that’s leading the charge to a fully connected United States.
No Prize for Second Place
But the thing is when you have assets worth so much and contracts with every major communications provider, eventually, word’s going to get out.
And when that happens, investors are going to rush the shares and send this stock through the roof.
I say when that happens, but to be perfectly honest, it already has. Earlier this summer, these shares were trading for less than $5. Now they’re close to heading over $10.
In a few months, they’re likely to double again and be sitting at $20. After that, the sky is the limit. These shares could run all the way up to $68 or more.
If you want to capture the lion’s share of those profits, you have to act fast. Every day, more investors find out about this company. With every new investor that gets on board, your chance for massive profits gets smaller and smaller.
So don’t delay. Take a few minutes today to learn everything you need to know about the little company set to dominate the future of communications.
