The Best 5G Stocks to Buy Just Got Their $46 Billion Catalyst

Grand View Research expects the 5G industry to reach $46 billion next year, with a compound annual growth rate of 43.9%. For perspective, the S&P 500 average CAGR is 7%.

We're going to show you some of the best 5G stocks to buy to take advantage of this.

By now, you have heard about 5G communications and how it is going to drastically change the way we live, work, and play. The Wall Street Journal says 5G is already clocking in speeds that are as much as 100 times faster than current 4G networks. And that will enable faster communication than ever.

Until now, that probably sounded like a dream. But the T-Mobile--Sprint merger of last year just made it a reality. They're proving that 5G speeds are more than hype and how it is going to change the world as we know it.

The Latest 5G Stock Catalyst

On April 1, wireless carrier T-Mobile US (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced that it had completed its merger with rival Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) to create a new carrier that will focus on its 5G network. The company said it will deliver 5G capability to 99% of the U.S. population, including rural areas.

The new company may still trail its big competitors AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) in revenue, but it controls more of the communications bandwidth than the big guys. And in the critical fast mmWave bands, where all the 5G power is unleashed, it is second only behind Verizon.

5G is the fifth generation (5G) wireless communications network soon to be rolled out everywhere. It uses a wider frequency spectrum so many more devices can operate in the same geographic area.

Why is that important? Because people can interact with machines or other people in near real time. Think about how that will transform streaming and remote-controlled drones and driverless cars. It will truly revolutionize the Internet of Things (IoT) and transform the healthcare system as we know it.

5G is such a powerful technology that it will add $12 trillion to the global economy by 2035.

That means there will be investment opportunities, not only in the actual network providers, but in all sorts of industries that support them. This includes infrastructure, switching, artificial intelligence, hardware, software, and more. Then there will be companies that use 5G to deliver their own services, from remote surgery to gaming, and from traffic control to autonomous vehicles.

So the best 5G stocks come in all shapes and sizes...

But this isn't just a positive sign for the roughly 162 million Americans who've recently experienced slowing Internet. If our projections hold, you could net a huge payout by year's end.
