How to Invest in ESSENTIAL Businesses
“Zach, our company is responsible for a big part of the INTERNET. So if our facilities go down, things could get bad in a hurry. That’s why our business is “essential” and while our people are still going to work!”
Jim is my neighbor who works for a big communications company. You’d definitely recognize the name — and I’m guessing you’re even a customer of this company. But out of respect for Jim’s privacy I won’t tell you which firm he’s with.
Jim and I were having a backyard conversation this weekend (with proper social distancing of course).
And what he told me about his business helped to reinforce my confidence in a huge opportunity we’ve been following here at The Daily Edge.
Today as we continue to navigate this coronavirus environment, I want to make sure you’re taking advantage of this essential opportunity to grow and protect your wealth.
More Important Now Than Ever
“If it’s not necessary, we’re not going to do it.”
That’s what I’ve been telling my kids every time they ask to go visit a friend or drive to get some fast food.
I tell you, it’s not easy helping teenagers practice social distancing! Especially when we’re having family debates about what should be considered “essential” and what can be put off until the coronavirus risk is lower.
That’s what sparked my conversation with Jim.
I asked him not only how he’s dealing with these issues on a family level, but also how he’s dealing with these issues at work. After all, Jim manages a team of operators across the country. And I know from past conversations that many of them are still out in the field.
That’s when Jim started telling me about the essential nature of these dedicated workers. Many of whom are helping to build out the backbone of the very internet that is allowing so many people to work from home, communicate with loved ones, and even order things for delivery to keep from spreading this infection.
“My team has been working hard…” Jim told me. “… and because of their work protecting and growing our company’s network, I think many people will be able to avoid getting the virus.
“So while it’s certainly an individual risk to my workers who are out there on the front lines, they’re providing an essential benefit to society.”
Let’s add these operators to the list of people we’re grateful for during this time of transition and uncertainty.
But what exactly is Jim’s team doing that is so essential?
Well, a big part of their role right now is building out 5G networks across America. The very same networks that we’ve been researching and investing in here at The Daily Edge.
And despite the many shutdowns that coronavirus has been causing around the world, the 5G rollout continues to make progress.
After all… fast, reliable internet is more important now than ever!
Stable 5G Income in an Unstable Market
To say that the last few weeks has been an uncertain time for investors would be an understatement.
Every single day, we’re hit with new information on the spread of coronavirus. We’re hearing conflicting reports of what we’re supposed to do to keep ourselves safe and healthy. And as the virus spreads, so does the uncertainty for politicians and investors.
More recently, there’ve been discussions in Washington about how to structure a stimulus plan to help consumers and businesses weather this economic storm. And I have to tell you, I’m not at all sure that our politicians are up to the task of setting aside party differences and putting together a strategic plan for the American public.
Which is why we have to take matters into our own hands and find the best ways to lock in our own streams of income.
One of the best ways to generate this income is by investing in the industries that keep America running.
And I’m particularly talking about the country’s internet infrastructure which is now in the process of upgrading to a reliable 5G platform.
Regardless of what happens with coronavirus, you can be sure that people will continue using the internet in their homes and businesses. And demand for 5G connectivity will continue to grow.
So how do we lock in our income from these essential networks?
Get Your Income From 5G Landlords
One of the best ways to ensure you get paid, is by setting yourself up as a landlord for the communications companies that are installing these networks.
You see, while the cell phone towers that you see walking through your community are filled with equipment from the big network carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile etc.), the towers themselves aren’t typically owned by these companies.
Instead, the towers are owned by real estate companies.
And these real estate companies charge rent for every single piece of equipment that sits on their property.
Incidentally, 5G networks are going to require a lot more equipment, on many more towers. So these rent payments are set to skyrocket as 5G is rolled out in new locations.
If you invest in these 5G tower companies, you’ll collect your share of the rental payments these companies charge the big telecom firms for using their towers.
And since many of these tower companies are structured as Real Estate Investment Trusts (or REITs), the investments are legally required to pay you the vast majority of their profits.
I love this stream of income in today’s uncertain environment.
Because even though we can’t know what politicians will do, or how soon our society will be able to rebound from the coronavirus threat, we do know that people will continue to need the internet. And we know that 5G will play a big part in keeping people and businesses connected and as productive as possible.
So consider adding cell phone tower companies to your investment portfolio.
And of course, let me know what you’re doing with your cash from our income opportunities!
Here’s to growing and protecting your wealth!
