7 Stocks Set to Rocket Higher?
In 1957 the Soviet Union launched the first satellite into space, Sputnik.
Afraid to fall behind… the U.S. quickly stepped up their game, starting what we now call the space race.
Today there is another space race going on. But this time it isn’t between rival countries….
It is between some of the biggest, and richest, names in tech.
Today I’m going to share everything you need to know about what’s coming… and show you how you can see my exclusive research on seven profit opportunities in space…
The 5G Problem
One of the biggest reasons 5G is just getting attention now is because of how long it’s taken to get the infrastructure in place.
5G is so far beyond current technology that it’s essentially incompatible with anything behind the times. That means lots of new wires, routers, processors and towers.
When it’s all set and ready, the payoff will be huge.
We’re on the cusp of a new age of connectivity that will unlock the full potential of self-driving cars… long-distance robotic surgery… even augmented reality.
But some deep-pocketed companies have decided to go a step beyond 5G…
And they’re building their networks in outer space.
The idea is pretty simple — put a bunch of tiny wireless internet routers into a group of small satellites and then deploy them in a low-Earth orbit.
And just like that, people can enjoy high-speed internet access wherever there’s satellite coverage. No towers or fiber-optic cables needed!
It might sound far-fetched, but it’s already happening.
SpaceX, for instance, already has plans to put 1,584 internet-beaming satellites in orbit by 2022.
They already have over 600 in orbit, with more ready to launch soon.
Amazon has similar plans.
In early 2020, the company best known as an online retailer teamed up with Iridium Communications to offer AWS cloud services from space using next-generation satellites.
And Amazon’s CEO plans to build his own network of satellites to power an internet service he’s calling Project Kuiper.
Right now it’s still unclear how well any of these networks will work… or if they’ll even be profitable.
In the past, both Musk and Bezos have had no qualms about spending more on their pet investment projects than they get back from them.
However, I’m seeing strong signs that another giant corporation is about to throw its hat into the ring.
You guessed it — I’m talking about Apple.
Introducing What I Call “Apple-Fi”
Apple has a long history of innovation:
- The Macintosh computer it developed in 1984 changed entire industries
- The iPod rewrote our relationship with music and entertainment
- The iPhone ushered in the age of the smartphone.
In each of those cases, Apple wasn’t the first into a market. Yet it ended up dominating the competition anyway.
And over the past few years, it has quietly set out to conquer outer space
A few years back, it received a patent — No. 20130271317 A1 — for satellite phone communications.
In 2017, the company hired away Google satellite hardware execs in a bid to build up its space expertise.
Apple’s staff now includes:
- Michael Trela and John Fenwick, two world-famous aerospace engineers who were part of one of the top satellite companies in the world…
- Matt Ettus, one of the foremost names in wireless technologies…
- Ashley Moore Williams, previously from Aerospace Corp., focused on satellites…
- And Daniel Ellis, one of the world’s top experts on building networks that can beam content.5
The company has reportedly been in talks with Boeing to partner on a satellite broadband project that would create a parallel internet in space.
Of course, Apple is known for its secrecy, but some details are out.
For instance, in December 2019, Bloomberg reported that Apple has a five-year goal to make your iPhone work anywhere in the world via satellite communications.
According to the article, Apple CEO Tim Cook’s interest in the project indicates “it’s a company priority.”
Cook wants to offer Apple’s customers wireless internet from space.
I’m calling it “Apple-Fi”.
But here’s the thing…
Apple’s in the consumer electronics business — not the telecommunications or infrastructure businesses.
So I find it very unlikely that Apple will spend billions and billions of dollars putting up its own constellation of satellites.
It will be far more cost-effective to have someone else put the satellite hardware together and shoot them into space… and then run the actual network once they’re up there.
Who will it turn to?
SpaceX is out — why would Musk help the competition?
Amazon’s Blue Origin rocket company is out for the same reason… and it’s unlikely Iridium would want to make Bezos mad by partnering with Apple.
I’m confident about one thing, though — any company that helps get Apple-Fi off the ground (literally) will enjoy a tidal wave of new revenues.
And as a result, these partners will see their stock shares soar.
So I’ve sifted through all the major and minor players to see who is most likely to benefit from an Apple team-up.
If my research is right, we could hear from Apple as early as this week. And as a result these seven companies I have targeted could be in position to rocket higher.
So I urge you to act fast… before it’s too late.
To a bright future,
