That’s how long it is until Election Day.
Americans will decide not only who’s president next. The House and the Senate are also up for grabs.
If you’re like most investors, you’re probably concerned about how the results will affect your portfolio.
As we predicted in these pages, we’re seeing volatility spike and stocks sell off as the big day approaches.
Today, U.S. stock market bellwether the S&P 500 dropped more than 3%. That’s its biggest one-day drop since June 11.
Don’t worry… I (Chris Lowe) am not going to try to predict who’ll win the election. If we learned anything from 2016, it’s that polls can be misleading… and anything can happen.
The best thing you can do is leave the guessing aside and position yourself in industries and trends set to benefit no matter who wins.
As you’ll see today and tomorrow, these include some of our favorite profit megatrends.
And top of the list is the next generation of wireless internet – 5G.
As colleague Jeff Brown has been showing his readers… it’s setting up to be the biggest tech trend of the decade.
Jeff is our tech-investing expert here at Legacy Research.
He’s also a Silicon Valley insider who’s been involved in the wireless technology revolution since the 1990s.
Jeff was an executive at Qualcomm (QCOM). It’s one of the chipmakers for each wireless generation going back to the early 1990s and 2G wireless networks.
He was also an executive at NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) – a leading chipmaker for 4G and 5G tech.
He knows just about everything there is to know about 5G technology… in other words – he knows how to make money from it.
And he’s given paid-up subscribers of his Near Future Report and Exponential Tech Investor advisories the chance to bag wins as big as 105% in less than two years on bleeding-edge 5G stocks.
Even better… Jeff says these gains are just beginning. As he’s been telling his readers, most folks still haven’t grasped the transformative nature of this new technology.
The network isn’t finished – yet. But it will be able to deliver download speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G.
You’ll be able to download a two-hour movie in 10 seconds. Dropped phone calls and slow-loading web pages will be things of the past.
And even when it’s not at full capacity, 5G is many times faster than the 4G networks we rely on today.
Jeff tested this out recently on his recent tour of the American heartland.
He crisscrossed the country testing 5G networks. You can watch his indoor speed test from an old bank vault by clicking on the image below.
But 5G isn’t a game-changer just because movies will download faster on your phone. It’s a game-changer because of the suite of sci-fi tech it will make possible. Jeff…
The never-before-seen speed of 5G will also make one of the biggest trends in tech – self-driving cars – a reality. As these cars drive, they produce a massive amount of data. They send this back and forth to AIs [artificial intelligence] over wireless networks to analyze to improve the car’s driving performance.
One autonomous vehicle is estimated to produce roughly 4,000 gigabytes of information a day. The average HD movie is only 4 gigabytes of data. That’s about 1,000 HD movies’ worth of data a day. And that’s just one car. Now, imagine thousands of them.
There are also breakthrough medical applications. The smooth, uninterrupted signal of 5G allows a brain specialist in Los Angeles to perform surgery on a patient… via a 5G-connected robotic surgeon… in a remote village in the Sahara Desert.
This means massive wealth creation. Jeff says the 5G rollout will grow U.S. GDP by $500 billion… create 3 million new jobs… and usher in more than $12 trillion in new wealth.
Let’s look at Trump first…
Becoming a global leader in 5G is a key strategic objective for the Trump administration.
In October 2018, Trump signed a presidential memorandum ordering the Commerce Department to develop a long-term National Spectrum Strategy. Despite the strange name… it’s huge news for 5G.
5G wireless devices connect to the internet via radio waves. These are broadcast from antennae in 5G cell towers. That’s why Trump wants a “spectrum” strategy.
It’s a reference to the spectrum – or range – of frequencies available to the mobile industry for communication over airwaves. Without it, we couldn’t make phone calls, military weapons would be set back 150 years, and 5G couldn’t exist.
Trump’s plan calls for the creation of a White House Spectrum Strategy Task Force. It’s a group of government agencies tasked with reviewing spectrum needs and how to share the spectrum with private-sector users.
And in March, the president signed into law two important pieces of 5G legislation – the Secure 5G and Beyond Act and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act.
Take it from Jeff…
These new acts will help ensure that all Americans can access broadband and that our 5G networks stay secure. And it shows that 5G is still a key piece of this administration’s agenda.
Biden wants to make Trump a one-term president. But he doesn’t want to turn back the clock on 5G.
He says that as president, he’ll expand wireless broadband to every American by way of an accelerated nationwide 5G rollout.
This includes expanding home broadband connections in rural America using 5G.
Speeds on these next-generation networks are so fast, folks no longer need to wait for fiber-optic cables to connect. You can have lightning-fast broadband speeds through the airwaves.
In July, Biden released a strategy document aimed to bring jobs back to America. It called for investing $300 billion in research and development of bleeding-edge tech, including 5G.
That’s rare in these hyper-partisan times. But it makes sense when you see this next chart Jeff has been showing his readers.
It’s of the growth in wireless internet traffic over current 4G networks…
As you can see, mobile network data traffic has been doubling every 14 to 15 months. This clogs up the pipes, so to speak, and slows down connection speeds.
This is getting worse due to the coronavirus lockdowns. Jeff again…
I tell my readers that COVID-19 can’t stop 5G. In fact, it’s the opposite. The pandemic is accelerating demand for better, faster wireless networks.
Data traffic rates have spiked as much as 50% in just the last few weeks. The pandemic has highlighted that our current 4G wireless networks are already congested and slowing down. The world needs the capacity and speed that 5G wireless technology provides.
That’s why the 5G story is so important. Physical tech infrastructure will boom in lockdowns and semi-lockdowns. We desperately need it to fix network congestion. 5G is an important part of the solution.
5G is not only a trend already in motion… it’s also unstoppable. That makes it exactly the kind of profit megatrend we’re on the lookout for here at The Daily Cut.
5G stocks are going to soar – no matter who wins the White House.
Jeff says his 5G-testing tour convinced him the opportunity is five times bigger than he previously thought.
So if you’re not already a Jeff subscriber, consider an exchange-traded fund (ETF) as a second-best way to get exposure to this trend.
One decent option is the First 5G ETF (FIVG). It tracks the performance of a group of U.S.-listed stocks in global companies that are involved in the development of, or are otherwise instrumental in, the rollout of 5G networks.
And if you missed Jeff’s Beyond Exponential summit last week, go here right now to watch a free replay of his latest findings on this millionaire-making trend.
You’ll see more footage from his travels… and his favorite way to gain exposure to the exponential growth that’s underway in 5G.
