2020 is a year that just doesn’t stop surprising us. Who’d have thought that the hot new smartphones would be foldable?
I’m not talking foldable like the old flip phones – with a screen on one side of its hinge and buttons on another.
I’m talking about screens that can fold into any size you can imagine!
Sounds crazy, right? Well, take a look at the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Motorola Razr.
Not to brag, but I pretty much knew they were coming. In my 10 Fearless Predictions for 2020 published last New Year’s Eve, my seventh prediction was that the “next generation of smartphones will be foldable.”
Well, they’re here…
If you stay on top of the trends, you could say that a lot of this started last summer in Spain. More than 10,000 technology experts and insiders – including high-level leaders from Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Microsoft (MSFT) – met at an exclusive summit in Barcelona to discuss the new technologies set to reshape our world.
It was the Super Bowl of the tech world… everyone was watching.
One clear trend that came out of the event was the new wireless technology – 5G. It’s a foundational breakthrough that enables even more breakthroughs. That’s why at Investment Opportunities I crafted a 5G Highway Portfolio of eight stocks (which are up 22% in less than two months!)
But as CNET reported, during this event 5G unexpectedly took a backseat to something else… something a little brighter and shinier. In fact, this new device downright stole the show… and that was foldable phones.
Forbes’ leading tech journalist said, “I felt a genuine sense of marvel the first time I folded the display myself.”
After using it for a while, he said: “I see a future in which we will no longer need to carry multiple devices around for productivity. I can carry a small portable device – one that fits in my pocket – and it can double as my phone and work machine.”
It’s an absolutely fascinating idea… that one device can be folded into any other device. You could see how much this can change things. I had to dig into it myself. I experienced them firsthand at the giant CES 2020 show earlier this year, and I even got my hands on an early prototype.
Not only is it cool. It’s attracting major attention.
The big boys are all in. The world’s largest smartphone makers are chomping at the bit to bring these phones to market…
Google has already invested nearly $1 billion in foldable phones.
LG has allocated $8.5 billion to foldable displays, saying it wants to make them the new standard.
Chinese tech giant Huawei is trying to gain an edge in the foldable market by spending more than $15 billion on research and development in 2018.
And going back to Samsung (the largest smartphone maker in the world), its first-generation foldable phone sold twice as many as it projected. Now the company is forecast to sell six million foldable phones in 2020, which is THREE TIMES bigger than the launch of the iPhone in 2007.
And yes… the iPhone itself is reportedly going foldable, too. (And 5G.)
With hundreds of the biggest tech corporations committed to supporting this trend – like Apple (AAPL), Samsung, Google, LG, and Motorola – the opportunity to make money on this situation is huge.
Right now, less than one half of one percent (0.05%) of the world’s population is using foldable phones. But all that is about to change.
As this trend unfolds over the next few years, we will ultimately see 3.2 billion smartphones being replaced by foldables. I predict this industry is set to surge, transforming into a massive $13.8 billion market in just a few years. That’s growth of 5,500%!
As I explain in tomorrow’s new issue of Investment Opportunities, there’s no question that investors who get in front of this massive tidal wave will reap the biggest rewards.
It’s like having the chance to invest in the IPO of Intel (INTC) or IBM (IBM) at the dawn of the PC revolution. Or Amazon, Google, or Microsoft in the early stages of the internet. Even Apple at the start of the smartphone revolution.
Now, I just mentioned a lot of software companies… a lot of tech giants that need technology like this. But what you really want to own are the companies with key patents that can provide the technology.
That way, you’re profiting from the trend every step of the way.
So, when it comes to this largest smartphone breakthrough in a decade, one of my top buys is – of course – the leader in foldable and transparent displays.
Ten years from now, we’ll look back on the current displays the way we view old CRT TVs today. And the company I’m talking about will help make that possible – thanks to its deals with the likes of Apple, Samsung, and LG. It’s just one of my four picks for the new Foldable Phones Portfolio at Investment Opportunities.
I’m also recommending a company that’s best-known for its cutting-edge TVs (and now foldables)…
A major supplier of these smartphone screens to Apple and Huawei…
And smaller up-and-comer in China that could be a big winner over time…
All of which are currently projected at 29%, 50%, even 55% annual earnings growth. Not bad for a global recession. It just goes to show that COVID-19 can’t halt technological progress. In fact, if anything, groundbreaking tech is needed more than ever.
P.S. In the new Investment Opportunities issue tomorrow, I’ll also have more on a newly recommended hypergrowth stock for which I’m projecting 550% upside potential. It’s one of my top buys right now. Click here to learn how you can get immediate access to the new issue as soon as it’s released.

huge investment opportunities right now:
The next trillion-dollar companies – the next Amazon, the next Google, etc. – are being hatched in research facilities and garages around the world. These firms will further change the world and revolutionize our economy.
Just as Apple, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft can’t function without the internet, the next generation of world-changing, $1 trillion mega winners can’t survive without the subject of this report… the super powerful infrastructure technology we call “5G.” Learn more here.
The car as we know it is on the verge of a transformative change not seen since Karl Benz invented it nearly 135 years ago. In fact, the whole transportation sector is now poised for its version of 2.0.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this will lead to trillions of dollars in money sloshing around in the coming decades. What is coming will create one of the five biggest investment opportunities you’ll ever see in your life, no matter when you were born. Learn more here.
The next big breakthrough in battery technology is an innovation that will have multi-trillion-dollar economic implications. I can tell you this mega innovation isn’t a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when,” and I believe it will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Those on the right side of this innovation stand to build incredible wealth… just like people did from the creation of the internet and the smartphone. Think of this as your “field guide” for profiting from the next big battery breakthrough. Learn more here.
