You’d be remiss if you left out Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) from metaverse stocks to buy list. The company is at the forefront of the metaverse revolution, pumping billions into the project through its Reality Labs division, which focuses on VR technology and software. Though the metaverse’s trajectory has been far from ideal, its massive long-term potential makes Meta an attractive bet in the niche.

With the massive success of Meta’s ‘Year of Efficiency’ and its AI initiatives, it has the impetus to continue funding its lucrative metaverse endeavors. Its commitment to the sector is unmatched, as it funnels billions into commercializing the metaverse. Hence, if the metaverse evolves into the behemoth most experts expect it to become, Meta stands to gain the most. Moreover, the metaverse is just one aspect of Meta’s incredible growth story, which has been on full display for the past couple of years.

With its role in powering multiple emerging technologies, expect it to continue growing its sales by double-digit margins for the foreseeable future. Also, with a renewed focus on cost efficiency, the company is strategically positioned to leverage the growing demand for metaverse technologies, making it a compelling choice for investors.

Roblox (NYSE:RBLX) is one of the innovators in the metaverse sector, captivating its powerful user base with its build-it-yourself gaming platform. Its robust platform witnessed massive growth during the pandemic, and though it stumbled with tough comps post-pandemic, it’s now back where it belongs.

The company demonstrated stellar financial performance last year, with a 26% jump in sales, coupled with bookings climbing to $3.5 billion, a 23% rise year-over-year (YOY). Moreover, it continues to attract a healthy number of daily active users, which reached 68.4 million, a 22% bump from the previous year.

Furthermore, the company wants to integrate AI to enhance its platform with tools like the Roblox Assistant, enabling users to generate content through natural language prompts. Additionally, it’s looking to optimize its operations through AI while aggressively expanding its advertising capabilities, partnering with PubMatic (NASDAQ:PUBM) to integrate video ads. Consequently, Wall-Street expects a sizeable 36% bump in its value from current prices, signaling stellar growth prospects ahead.
