10 Cheap 5G Stocks Under $10 and $5

Last Updated on November 19, 2020 by Henry John

5G Technology is identified as a key growth driver for 2020 and in the next five (5) years.

The global 5g technology market is anticipated to be at $5.53 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $667.90 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 122.3% from 2021 to 2026.

You can capitalize on this projected growth by investing in 5G stocks.

Here are the best 5g stocks under $10:

  • Ericsson: It has established itself as the runaway leader in the global race for 5g infrastructures. Its cause is helped by the ongoing trade-war between US and China which has seen Hauwei benched significantly in the global race.
  • Nokia: With Ericsson already leading the 5g race globally, Nokia sits in second place. Nokia stock has grew impressively (over 70%) since March.

Update: Since publishing this article back in March, most of the stocks listed below have gone ahead to produce at least a 50% return. And Ericsson now trades over $10. However, my number one 5g stock is still Ericsson. The worst performing stock on the list is Commun Systems Inc. which has lost a little over 2% of its value since being listed.

If you are interested in investing in 5G Technology Companies here are top 5G stocks under $10 and $5 to consider:

6 thoughts on “10 Cheap 5G Stocks Under $10 and $5”

  1. After the Covid-19 market crash in March, 2020, most of the 5G Stocks are soaring now. What is your take on Boingo (NASDAQ:WIFI)? It’s presently trading on $13.76. Should one buy it now?

    • Boingo Wireless is not a healthy 5g play at the moment. If you are looking for a healthy 5g play, I recommend Ericsson, Nokia and Qualcomm.
      Like you noted after the Covid-19 market, many 5g stocks are soaring and Boingo Wireless is not in the ‘soaring’ bracket.

    • Thanks for reaching out Craig. Upon receiving your comment, I have worked on updating the article and it’s now up-to-date.

      Do check out this article, where I explained how one can hedge the Ericsson 5g play with Nokia.

  2. Again,Thank You so very much Henry.You have given me so much fabulous information, allowing me such great investment opportunities. And for free !!! I could never repay you for your generosity.But please Henry,accept my deepest heartfelt sincerest FOREVER Gratitude !!!
