The 5 Best 5G Stocks to Watch in 2019

The 5G revolution is coming, and to help you cash in on the transformation, these are the best 5G stocks to watch in 2019.

In fact, the revolution could be as great as the rollout of personal computers and the introduction of the Internet. These made fortunes for investors who got in early.

In October 2018, Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) said it had started to activate the first-ever 5G network in the United States. The 5G capability, rolled out in four U.S. cities, is expected to expand throughout 2019 and 2020.

moneymorning.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/2019/03/5g-4-300×179.jpg 300w, moneymorning.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/2019/03/5g-4-75×45.jpg 75w” sizes=”(max-width: 330px) 100vw, 330px” title=”” />

Currently, data networks in the United States run on 4G. Your smartphone, for example, is likely a 4G phone.

But the upgrade to 5G won’t just mean a faster connection – it could transform the entire economy. 5G will enable self-driving cars to become a reality because autonomous cars need continuous, rapid access to real-time data. That also means they need the constant, high-speed connection 5G offers.

The Internet of Things (IoT), which will enable devices to talk to each other across businesses and homes, will move faster and more conveniently on 5G.

Plus, broadband-like speeds will allow you to connect to the Internet anywhere. That could change how we look at Internet services and cable television.

Fortunately, all the disruption 5G networks will bring is creating an opportunity for investors.

These are our best 5G stocks to watch in 2019, and they’re poised to reward investors.

Best 5G Stocks to Watch in 2019, No. 5: Keysight Technologies Inc.

Keysight Technologies Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) is a U.S. electronics firm that develops equipment and software for measurement and analysis of electrical statistics.

That may sound niche, but Keysight has developed its business to be crucial to the 5G expansion of networks. 5G will require a network of hardwiring and towers to function properly. To put the network together, 5G companies will need to analyze and collect data. Keysight makes the instruments necessary to do this.

5G Is Coming: The Tech Breakthrough of the Century Could Rest on This $6 Stock – Get All the Details Here

Two years ago, KEYS worked with semiconductor company Qualcomm Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM) to demonstrate the first 5G data connection with a modem chipset.

It’s very likely to become a key player given that history.

Not only that, but KEYS has a Money Morning Stock VQScore™ of 3.15, meaning that it’s a solid stock.

Further, Wall Street analysts forecast a $100 share price in the next 12 months – a nice 17% advance from the current $84.94 share price.

Best 5G Stocks to Watch in 2019, No. 4: Intel Corp.

Venerable semiconductor maker Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC) is the second largest global chipmaker.

It doesn’t intend to be a slouch in the 5G market, either. In fact, the company has spent the last 10 years making sure it dominates the market.

Eight years ago, INTC bought Infineon, a modem maker based in Germany. It’s the only company that supplies modems to tech giant Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). AAPL uses the modem chips from Infineon to connect iPhones to networks.

So now INTC has an exclusive supplier relationship with Apple, one of the biggest device makers on the planet.

INTC plans to launch a 5G modem in 2019 too. That will be a big help in ushering the iPhone into the 5G world.

But the 5G modems are also planned for automakers for use in self-driving cars and for industrial manufacturers for the IoT.

Wall Street analysts have a target price on INTC of $70 – a nearly 30% climb from today’s $54 share price.

INTC currently has a 3.75 VQScore. While it’s a good buy, you are likely to get an even better price – and therefore better potential price appreciation – if you buy on the next dip.

Best 5G Stocks to Watch in 2019, No. 3: Apple Inc.

And just like we said above, tech behemoth Apple is primed for the 5G revolution.

Apple has been seeing the effects of lagging sales for its flagship product, the iPhone, driven by weakening sales in China and throughout the globe.

So much so that AAPL’s earnings report in January showed a drop in revenue of 5%. And the company lowered guidance for future quarters. Sales in the current quarter are forecast to decline up to 10%.

Apple needs to breathe new life into its old products. And 5G phones could be the innovation the company needs.

Apple and Intel are working together to see that they both capitalize on the new 5G networks.

Plus, Apple has been working on a self-driving car beginning in 2014. 5G is likely to be a gigantic boost to these plans.

AAPL enjoys an excellent 4.45 VQScore, putting the stock right in the “Buy Zone.” Analysts on Wall Street project that AAPL shares could rise up to 40% over the next 12 months, which might turn out to be overly conservative.

Best 5G Stocks to Watch in 2019, No. 2: Micron Technology Inc.

Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU) produces hardware used in manufacturing both semiconductors and computers worldwide.

It has been making plans for the 5G revolution for some time, developing a multichip package for use in 5G modems.

Its current product was developed to provide modems with the capability to run as much as 20 times faster than current modems.

MU’s products will be used in every sector that uses 5G.

Right now, MU has the highest VQScore of the 5G stocks bunch, at 4.75. Wall Street analysts have set a $90 target price on the stock. That’s an almost 125% increase from today’s $39.75 share price.

But our top 5G stock to watch is flying under the radar right now…

Buffett on the economy: ‘It looks like things have slowed down’

Billionaire Warren Buffett said Thursday that economic growth has lost some steam recently.

“It does look like the pace of increase in the economy has slowed down,” the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway told CNBC’s Becky Quick at The Gatehouse’s Hands Up for Success luncheon in Grapevine, Texas. “I’d call it somewhere close to noticeably, but I wouldn’t go beyond that.”

Buffett noted that a slowdown in BNSF, the railroad company owned by Berkshire, is flashing a signal of slower growth, but added that some of the data may be distorted by seasonal factors, such as the weather.

His comments came amid increasing concern that U.S. economic growth could be stalling. This has added to volatility in the stock market and has pushed Treasury yields lower.

The benchmark 10-year yield hit its lowest level since Dec. 5, 2017, overnight. Recently, the spread between the 10-year yield and its 3-month counterpart turned negative, causing a so-called yield-curve inversion. Inversions are seen by investors as a signal that a recession may be coming.

Still, Buffett said he is not concerned.

“But it does look like it’s slowing down. I don’t mean it’s reversing course, but it does seem from all of the businesses, especially the railroad statistics” that the economy may be growing at a slower pace, Buffett said. “That doesn’t change anything we do. If there was a flashing red light, if there was a blurring red light, we would keep investing the same way we do.”

He also repeated his mantra of the United States being the best place to invest money. “You really want to bet on America,” Buffett said. “God has blessed America.”

Hot Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

Currencies, commodities, different stock sectors, and bonds…   For the last few days, they've been all over the place.   Investors and traders are digesting the news. They're trying to figure out what "President Trump" means for the world. They're trying to figure out where their money is safest… and where they'll make the biggest profits.   Today, we'll look at a few areas of the market that are likely to do well under Trump…  
I'll start with infrastructure. Trump plans to spend big to improve things like roads and bridges in the U.S. He has experience with construction. And he'll likely follow through on his promises here.   That bodes well for companies that produce building materials like stone, gravel, steel, and copper. Just look at the price action of companies like Martin Marietta Materials (MLM), Vulcan Materials (VMC), U.S. Steel (X), and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) since the election. They've all shot higher.
