5G Stands as a Secular Investment Theme

Heading into 2019, investors are always combing the landscape for the “next big thing” to not only target undervalued opportunities but to also “follow the money” as to what institutions and hedge funds are focused on for big returns. After all, momentum is what we all want our stocks to exhibit, especially when they are the subject of the talking heads on CNBC and Bloomberg.

When I scan the universe of sectors and stocks for the most popular themes, I’d say that cannabis has captured the fascination of investors that want a bitcoin-style gold rush experience. Of the more fundamental investible themes that have the attention of professional money, mobile e-commerce is a big story, as is digital advertising, Software as a Service (SAAS), and 5G, which in my view is the hottest of the themes at this time.

We’ve all heard of 5G, but what makes this technology so special? Mainly, it is the next phase of improving the performance of global wireless networks; supporting not just the vast amounts of existing communications, but also to provide the necessary upgrades of bandwidth to absorb the billions of devices that all communicate with each other, called the Internet of Things or IoT.

This goes way beyond portable computers or smartphones and involves the ability of device-to-device communication within households, industrial, and automotive applications. Currently, these and many many other platforms operate independently of each other, so bringing seamless connectivity between multiple wireless platforms is truly transformational and will increase industrial and human productivity substantially.

Within the whole 5G rollout and the end markets of the untold number of devices and applications, 5G technology will service is what analysts call the “guts” of the technology, which is embedded in semiconductor chips that make everything work internally. Like the desktop computer business that sprang up thirty years ago, almost every leading manufacturer of PC had “Intel Inside” as the commercials touted.

While the war was on to capture market share, Intel was akin to an arms dealer: they didn’t care who won the war, just as long as it was raging. They were supplying all sides and their technology had a very high moat, meaning it was very difficult to replicate or compete with. Their PC chips were simply the best in the world.

Fast forward three decades, and by no surprise, Intel (INTC)is right back in the thick of a massive global technology rollout, bringing to market the highest performance chip technology for the 5G markets. Intel’s single-chip modem, called the XMM 8160, is slated to be ready to ship mid-to-late 2019 according to the company and deals with Dell, Lenovo, Microsoft, and Hewlett Packard are already inked.

Wireless carriers around the world have or are in the maturing phases of installing 5G networks, but they are of no use to businesses, governments, and consumers if the devices aren’t 5G compatible. So far, Apple has chosen Intel over Qualcomm to power its next generation of 5G-ready smartphones, which is a crown jewel account for Intel going forward.

What makes this story so compelling is that Intel is such a trusted name in the industry, unlike other chipmakers whose stocks are super volatile. Intel is a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, trades at a reasonable valuation and pays a 2.26% dividend yield while coming into a new product cycle with worldwide application. The stock is also showing up to be a leader in the current market as well.

In one of the more compelling long-term charts available anywhere, shares of INTC have been building a base for 15 years, going back to 2004, made an initial move up to $35 in 2014, and broke out in late 2017 at $38 and have been adding to those gains since. As of this week, the stock trades at $55 and is challenging its 52-week high of $57.60. A move above this level will invite further technical buying.

Our Tradespoon Seasonal Chart is flashing a buy signal in Intel as well, with three of four “higher” readings for the next 20, 30, 40 and 50-day periods. When my artificial intelligence platform is glowing about a stock as blue-chip as Intel, it is almost as good as it gets for investors seeking a high-quality and timely trade.

Within the analyst community, there are 5 Strong Buys, 18 Buys, 13 Holds and no Underperform or Sell ratings for Intel. In a stable market, such as the present, the stock could trade up to $70, or 25% higher on the back of its 5G chip rollout later this year. That’s a tall order for most stocks of the same caliber and is why when my AI system gets behind a name like Intel, it deserves the attention of all serious investors.

Speaking of serious investing, readers of this column are invited to join my RoboInvestoradvisory service where I recommend specific stocks and ETFs, some of which can be inverse ETFs to hedge our portfolio and just take advantage of overbought market conditions where money can be made on pullbacks. The idea is to make as much money on the way up while providing a smooth ride during periods of market turbulence.

Having the right tools to provide that smooth ride is what I’ve spent years developing. Customizing my AI platform to not only recognize when to press our investment capital and when to lighten up but also which of the best stocks and ETFs to buy and sell on a timely basis. Sign up for RoboInvestor today and look for my entry into 5G stocks like Intel that will continue to be the talk of the tech sector for 2019 and beyond.
