The Top 5G Penny Stock
Nokia Oyj (NYSE: NOK) was once the darling of the mobile phone industry before the invention of the iPhone. The Finnish global telecom and consumer electronics company has actually been around since 1865.
But 5G is giving this stock a new tailwind.
The firm is working to bolster its 5G offerings in Japan and considers the next-generation technology the "end-to-end network transformation" that can bring it back to international prominence. It just bought optical networking firm Elenion to help with the 5G race.

One of the key things I want to see when buying a tech penny stock is who else is going along for the ride. Over the last year, we've watched as hedge funds pile more and more money into Nokia. In the fourth quarter, hedge funds increased their holdings of Nokia stock by a whopping 21.3 million shares. This included big purchases by Capital Growth Management ($28.57 million in stock) and Southeastern Asset Management ($12.06 million).
The ongoing growth of hedge fund investment signals that large institutional investors are willing to put large stakes of capital on a company at a time of major transformation. These companies believe in Nokia's next-generation technology and view it as a low-floor, high-return opportunity compared to other speculative positions in the space.
Nokia stock currently trades at $4.12 per share. But with 5G ramping up, shares could rise to $6 over the next 12 months. That price target represents a potential upside of 45.6% in the next year.
