Like many of you, I spent this morning glued to the television, watching the Inauguration Day festivities – and chaos.
And I expect to spend some more time tomorrow checking out whatever protests are going on.
But that's it. No more distractions.
After that, it's back to following Rule No. 2 of Your Tech Wealth Blueprint – the five-part system we use to identify the companies best positioned to yield hefty profits… the ones we want to invest in.
That means it's time to buckle down and "Separate the Signals from the Noise."
Turn off the news for a while and concentrate on following another one of our tech wealth rules – No. 3 – "Ride the Unstoppable Trends."
And one of the biggest tech trends going today has little to nothing to do with the presidential transition or the new administration's goals – but it's still unstoppable, and that means we need to keep watching it.
I'm talking about the need for broadband wireless Internet speeds … known in the industry as 5G.
Today, I'll not only show you why 5G is destined to become a vital Singularity Era technology that will change the way we work and live.
I'll also show you how the need for 5G speeds affects me personally – and millions of other Americans.
Better yet, I'll reveal a fast-growing, small-cap company that's already playing an integral role in bringing 5G to "the masses"… and is poised to hand its shareholders market-crushing gains.
Tech Rich… Internet Poor
If you had any doubts about the need for next-gen broadband wireless speeds, consider the plight of "poor" Silicon Valley – where I've spent much of the past 35 years or so.
The Valley, of course, is the "capital" of the U.S. and global tech economies. At its epicenter is Stanford University, from which sprang Hewlett-Packard back in 1935. Since then, thousands of cutting-edge firms have set up shop in the towns and suburbs south of San Francisco, along the way creating a steady stream of millionaire investors, not to mention billionaire entrepreneurs.
Indeed, Silicon Valley is headquarters for such firms as Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA), Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB), Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL), and Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC). Silicon Valley's top 10 firms have a combined market value of $2.2 trillion.
Wireless and the mobile revolution accounts for much of the success of these firms over the last decade or so – just think of the iPhone, launched 10 years ago this month, alone.
There's just no question that the world of mobile communications, gaming, commerce, and video is a rich one. Just as an example, spending on mobile games alone over the holidays came in at $967.6 million, according to Sensor Tower Inc.
StatCounter says that 40% of all website visits are done through a mobile device, and that fig…
