How a 52-yr-old man made US$600 million with ONE stock
By: Bruce Jackson
In 1952, a struggling paper cup salesman named Ray would never have predicted the absurd fortune that was about to fall into his lap. Ray was just a regular guy with big hopes and dreams that never materialised.
But sure as the sun does rise, Ray stumbled upon what’s considered the greatest wealth creation event in history – and amassed a fortune the size of a small country.
You may have already guessed that I’m speaking of Ray Kroc, the Burger Baron and late owner of the hundred-billion-dollar McDonald’s franchise.
But what you may not know is… McDonald’s didn’t balloon because it sold burgers and fries…
… nor did its stock price soar – making early investors rich – because of its colorful mascot, Ronald McDonald.
Instead, McDonald’s became a US$160 billion behemoth because of something hardly anyone could’ve dreamed up at the time…
Can you guess? It was real estate – buying and leasing restaurant space to its franchisees!
In fact, in 2018 it was reported that McDonald’s made $30 billion USD from renting real estate. Can you believe it? If you want to own a McDonald’s, you must pay for the right to use their land FIRST. No getting around it.
Which brings me to the opportunity I want to talk to you about today…
The US$12.3 trillion “leasing” opportunity of 2020
Right now, we’ve spotted one company that’s in the unique position McDonald’s was in nearly 70 years ago.
And before you ask… no, it’s not another burger company… but they are using the same powerful strategy that’s made McDonald’s investors so much money over the years.
Now, I promise to tell you more about this under-the-radar company in a moment… but first let me tell you about the revolutionary breakthrough that could push this company to new highs – and potentially make fast-acting investors rich.
It’s none other than 5G technology – or, what PC Magazine calls “the investment for the next decade.”
With speeds 20X faster than our current 4G internet… and wireless giants around the world racing to stake their claim in it…
5G will be like the gold rush of the 1850s.
Only this time, the life-changing implications are sure to be far greater than the gold rush. Just think how 5G could…
- Enable self-driving cars and save millions of lives per year
- Open the doors to smart cities… and transform agriculture and manufacturing as we know it
- Allow remote surgeries to be performed by doctors thousands of miles away from patients
- Create nearly 22 million jobs by 2035, according to Qualcomm
Even The Economist reports that “5G is hard to underestimate, and it will have applications we’ve yet to even dream of.” There’s just one problem.
5G can’t operate with its current infrastructure.
And that brings me back to the remarkable company I mentioned earlier.
You see, 5G requires different towers than 4G to perform… and more land for those towers. Both of which this company holds a lion’s share of the rights to.
In fact, major cellphone companies in the U.S. like Verizon and AT&T are forced to use this company’s services for their 4G wireless towers… and are locked into contracts for the 5G rollout.
As of today, they’ve…
- Recently signed multibillion-dollar contracts with America’s four largest cell providers to build 5G towers
- And are estimated to soar from roughly 80,000 locations to more than 240,000 by 2025!
In short, THIS is the company we think you should consider having in your portfolio if you want to position yourself wisely for the coming 5G boom.
We here at Motley Fool Australia are convinced we’re only in the VERY early days of this company’s trajectory.
Because even if 5G doesn’t take off (which is unlikely), this company has secured long-term leases that could potentially cause a massive stock surge in the months ahead.
The best part is you can find out all about it in a breaking new 5G investor’s playbook from Motley Fool Australia.
