Investors have their popcorn ready for the 5G network tussle as Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS) and TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPM) battle it out in a bidding war, but this small-cap connectivity player is the one to keep an eye on.
Megaport Ltd (ASX: MP1) shares have risen 72% from its share price of $2.20 at this time last year to $3.80 at the time of writing and according to an article in The Financial Review, the company provides “elastic connectivity” – allowing businesses to vary how much they need to use their data storage without installing physical infrastructure – a burgeoning niche.
The report focuses on Megaport’s Bevan Slattery, a serial entrepreneur, and by the sounds of it, one with his finger on the pulse.
One thing is for sure, any company with Slattery behind it looks seems to be able to second-guess the next big thing and Megaport looks to be no exception to the rule.
When a veritable investing and entrepreneurial genius speaks, it pays to listen.
In fact, he's now preparing a $100B "war chest" to invest entirely in this "terrifying" new technology, which could spell huge profits for investors.
