It’s holiday time, and that means people are going on vacation. It’s a little different this year as many of those vacations are actually going to be staycations., but either way you slice it, people need a break...

From work, from the news, from politics, from fear… you pick. We need a break from all of it.

But just because we need a break doesn’t mean the world stops turning, and it doesn’t mean the markets stop marketing or the stocks stop stocking.

So despite the fact that we’re closing our offices for the holidays, we’re still making sure you’re getting investable advice the whole time.

That means some of us had a lot of things we needed to take care of in advance. And with markets moving the way markets have been moving, it’s tough to write anything more than a day ahead of time.

But in order to give our background staff enough time to do all the things they do to make our emails and websites work, we had to get everything we want published for the rest of the year in by today.

And being a firm believer in the old adage “work smarter, not harder,” I decided to take the easy way out. So for the next couple of weeks, you’ll be getting four parts in a series of articles.

They’re all about trends I see starting to really gain traction that look like they’re going to carry on at least through the next decade. The series, as you can tell from the title of this piece, is “Megatrends.”

And today, we’re going to cover a megatrend that you all already know is very dear to my heart: 5G.

Revolutionary Is an Understatement

I’ve been writing about the 5G revolution for a while now — years at least — I’ve tried to explain how important it is and what a major opportunity it creates for investors.

But I’m afraid some people still aren’t seeing the whole picture, and I get it. When someone talks about the possibilities of the future, a lot of us just hear the teacher from Charlie Brown:

Driverless cars, that makes sense. It’s a car that can drive itself — basically, what everyone thought we had when they introduced “cruise control” so many years ago. OK, I can picture that.

And virtual reality is pretty easy to imagine. I can put on goggles and gloves, maybe eventually a full bodysuit, and I can “feel” like I’m in a different place or world. I can get so close to the video game that I’m completely immersed in the experience. Again, that’s pretty easy to picture.

But what about the other things, like augmented reality, connected cities, and smart homes?

Welcome to Your Custom Home

Right now, you can let your home’s digital assistant know you’re getting close. It’s cold outside, so it brings the temperature of the house up to where you like it, and when you pull into the driveway, the lights come on to greet you and the door unlocks as you approach.

But with 5G capabilities, the range of smart devices will be nearly limitless. So your digital assistant will be able to know when you’re getting close from your phone’s GPS, and it’ll warm up the house, put on some light jazz, turn on the lights, uncork a bottle of wine, and get dinner started too.

See Beyond the Picture

And augmented reality, again, is something I can picture. Just think of the digital billboards we’ve already got along the highways, the ones that run through several ads an hour.

Now imagine those aren't billboards on the side of the road, but messages that pop up on a screen or the lens of your glasses, reminding you that you need to stop and pick up toilet paper, or wine, or whatever your smart house noticed you’ve been getting low on.

But it could be so much more than that. While you’re walking down the street, your glasses will be able to help you find where you parked your car by showing you an arrow pointing down at it in a sea of cars.

They’ll be able to spot weeds in your garden (and highlight them for you) just because you glanced in that direction.

Or say you’re in a big open place, like the National Mall in Washington, D.C. You’re looking for your friends, and you’re pretty sure they’re near the reflecting pool, but you’re not sure which side. Well, your AR glasses will be; they’ll be able to identify your friends and point you right to them. So you don’t have to wander around looking lost and confused.

A Better World for Everyone

That leaves connected cities. That’s a little more complex, and it has even more possibilities.

In a smart city, streetlights can track pedestrian volume and save energy by only operating as needed. Connected devices can monitor air quality, sewage, water quality, and garbage collection. Sensors on roads and bridges can catch damage before it becomes a dangerous and expensive problem.

Programs will be able to go back through decades worth of fire and accident data and help firefighters and emergency medical personnel shorten response times. Sensors will be able to monitor traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian, and will help alleviate congestion on city streets.

More and better data will help make cities more accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities. Information and high-resolution images of pavement and sidewalk conditions will help people in wheelchairs navigate city streets and help cities focus on making their streets more accessible.

Data can be analyzed by artificial intelligence to help cities better prepare for disasters. It will help optimize post-disaster response plans. It will also allow urban planning that takes into account potential disasters in that area.

The possibilities are truly limitless when we combine the advances that we’ve made in technology with a wireless network capable of handling massive amounts of data and maintaining blistering speeds.

And that’s why the development of 5G and its rollout across the U.S. and the globe is so exciting and will be so profitable for companies and investors alike.

But there’s a fundamental problem holding the deployment of 5G back...

The Need for Speed

You see, most internet connections in the country were built to send information in one direction: downstream. So those using cable and DSL are on networks built for downloads. That’s great if all you’re doing is streaming movies while you’re stuck at home. But if you need to send data out, say in a video conference, your DSL leaves you SOL.

I’ve got the fastest residential internet package Comcast (or “Concast” as some know it) offers. Its top upload speed: a whopping 10 Mbps. I can’t get more even if I offer to pay for it (which I did).

Mobile wireless networks, fixed networks in rural areas, and satellite broadband all suffer from the same capacity constraints as cable and DSL. It’s so bad that Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile got together and struck a deal with Dish Network, the satellite TV company, to “borrow” its unused wireless spectrum to help boost their network capacity.

But even last-ditch efforts like that are still leaving millions without the networks we need. Like Pete Mitchell, we’ve got the need for speed. But we need it in both directions...

5G can help fix that, but 5G is wireless and needs to be connected to our physical networks by something that can handle speeds that fast.

There’s only one kind of physical connection that’s as fast as 5G wireless, and that’s fiber optic cable. Unfortunately, most of the country lacks access to that kind of cable.

And the only places in the United States that have 5G wireless are also on the fiber network of one small company.

Here’s a map of the company’s fiber network with a map of cities with 5G in the U.S. set next to it:

5g cities 2020

I know they’re a little small, but you can see that the only cities with 5G are also cities on this company’s fiber network. That’s no accident. It’s because this company owns the largest fiber-optic cable network in the country.

And it’s allowing access to its network for a small fee, kind of like a toll collector charging you each time you want to get off the backroads and onto the highway.

One Ring Network to Rule Them All

This company already has contracts in place with all the major wireless carriers, the U.S. government, countless cable and internet service providers, and even school systems across the country.

And in those contracts, it’s negotiated a sort of rental payment that keeps its customers on the network. I like to think of it as those companies paying a toll to get on the information superhighway.

Every time they want to get somewhere fast, they pay this company a little toll. And all those little tolls add up very fast.

In 2019, the company collected around $1 BILLION in these “tolls.” This year, that number is going to be even bigger. I’m projecting “toll” payments to add up to over $1,156,000,000. And that will just keep growing as the 5G network continues to expand nationwide.

But the thing is... nobody has noticed the immense power this small company holds over some of the biggest operations on the planet. That’s kept its share price down under $10.

But the secret is getting out. Just a few months ago, shares were trading under $5. Now they’re well above $10. That’s a 100%+ gain already. But it’s just the beginning.

Because I’m predicting that after all is said and done, this company’s shares could be trading as high as $68 apiece.

And the best part is that you don’t have to wait for the stock to soar to start collecting your profits.

You see, this company also has a deal with the IRS. It can lower its corporate taxes if it pays out a high percentage of its 5G “tolls” to shareholders.

And that profit share adds up fast, too, just like the little “tolls” the company collects for accessing its fiber.

Over the past five years, they’ve added up to over $1.3 BILLION.

Average that out and you’re looking at a share of $333.2 million every single year, and that’s not even counting the profits that have been shared in 2020.

Your Chance to Get in on the Ground Floor

As more and more investors have taken notice of this little company that has big tech by the you-know-what’s, its share price has kept on growing. What you could get for $5 in April, you’ll have to pay over $10 for today.

But it’s still WAY too cheap for all of the value packed into its massive network.

So if you want a chance to collect a share of the 5G “tolls” companies are paying to get on the network and you want an opportunity to watch your shares climb from under $15 to over $60...

You need to see this presentation.

In it, you’ll learn all of the details about the company and why its network is so critical to 5G. You’ll hear from other investors who’ve turned their financial fortunes around, and you’ll find out how you can get in on the ground floor before this stock soars into the stratosphere.

Just click here and you’ll be directed to the presentation and all the information you’ll need.

Or, if you prefer to read, you can access a report with all the same details by clicking here.

It doesn’t really matter how you get the info, just that you get it. Both the presentation and the report will help you get set up for massive profits. Both contain the same information.

But what does matter is that you act quickly.

With every day that passes, more investors find out about the potential behind this stock. And with every new bullish investor, the price heads up a little higher.

That means, if you don’t want to get cut out of any more profits and 5G “tolls,” you need to make your move today.

To your wealth,
