What’s the best business on the planet?
The answer may surprise you.
Despite what many folks think, most successful businesses don’t sell software or provide cybersecurity solutions. They aren’t in the electric vehicle industry either.
No. Many of the world’s most dominant companies sell ads.
Early investors who saw the massive potential of this industry had the opportunity to multiply their money many times over. (I’ll show you the proof in a second).
More importantly, I’ll tell you about the NEXT advertising frontier. And how you can start profiting off it today.
Fill in the blank:
Google (GOOG) is a ____ company.
Most people would say Google’s a tech company… and that its search engine is its most powerful tool.
But Google is really an advertising powerhouse.
More than 80% of Google’s revenue comes from advertising sales! It also owns nearly 29% of the global advertising market.
Facebook (FB) is a similar story.
If you asked most people what Facebook does, they’d tell you it’s the world’s most popular social media platform.
And that’s true. But that’s not how Facebook makes its money.
Like Google, it lives and dies off advertising. In fact, ad sales account for 97% of Facebook’s revenue.
Early investors who realized Google and Facebook were really in the ad-selling business have made life-changing gains…
Google has surged nearly 3,800% since it went public in 2004.
Facebook has also obviously been a massive winner. It’s soared more than 750% since its 2012 initial public offering (IPO).
Of course, Google and Facebook aren’t the only “advertising stocks” that have made early investors fortunes.
Smaller advertising stocks have also been huge moneymakers…
Like social media giant Snap (SNAP).
Snap operates a social media platform that’s a massive hit with the younger generation. Like Facebook, it lives off ad revenue… which accounts for 99% of Snap’s sales.
Snap’s decision to center its business around advertising has clearly paid off.
The stock has surged nearly 12-fold since the start of 2019—and 266% since I encouraged RiskHedge readers to buy it in January 2020.
The Trade Desk (TTD) has also cashed in on a mega bull market in advertising. The digital ad disruptor has rallied 28x since its 2016 IPO—and 211% since I wrote about it in December 2019.
Then there’s cord-cutting pioneer Roku (ROKU), which also generates most of its revenue from ad sales.
Roku has skyrocketed 1,200% since its initial public offering—229% since I first recommended readers buy the stock in February 2020.
By now, you can see advertising isn’t just an incredible business. It’s also a way for everyday investors to book life-changing returns.
But here’s the thing…
The battle for people’s eyeballs is constantly evolving.
At first, it was billboards that you’d see on your commute home.
Later it was magazines… then radio… and finally, television.
More recently, streaming services have turned into a major tech battleground for advertising.
Now, the million-dollar question every investor should be asking themselves is… “Where will the next advertising battleground be fought?”
And I believe I’ve found the answer.
The “metaverse” is the next frontier for advertising…
The metaverse is a 3D, immersive internet, where you, through an avatar, can socialize with other people… work… play… create… and basically “exist.”
In short, it’s the next iteration of the internet. And I believe this trend will only accelerate from here.
The metaverse will span both the physical and digital worlds.
Luxury brand Gucci is already marketing inside the metaverse, while Louis Vuitton recently released a collection for the League of Legends universe.
Not only that, Netflix (NFLX) just announced that it will be bringing its hit series Stranger Things to the metaverse.
It’s easy to see why these world-class companies are beginning to converge on the metaverse en masse.
There’s a massive amount of money at stake. The market for virtual items is already worth $50 billion.
However, I don’t recommend buying a tech giant like Facebook, Google, or Microsoft to profit off the metaverse.
If you want to make the most of this opportunity, you need to focus on smaller, lesser-known stocks.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many “pure play” metaverse stocks…
The good news is that there are other ways to profit.
You can invest in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) stocks.
These technologies will make the metaverse accessible to billions of people. They will also allow brands to create more immersive experiences that’ll forge deeper connections with their customers.
But don’t just take my word for it.
The CEO of chip giant Nvidia (NVDA) recently said, “We’re right on the cusp” of an augmented reality metaverse. And Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook recently called AR the “next big thing.”
As I wrote in the June 22 RiskHedge Report, Facebook is now testing ads in its Oculus VR platform.
These huge companies are excited about VR and AR for a simple reason. The growth potential is truly staggering.
The global AR market is projected to grow at a whopping 43.8% per year between now and 2028. The global VR market is also projected to grow at more than 40% per year over the next six years.
This is what I like to call a “hypergrowth” investing opportunity.
It’s a chance to get in at the ground floor of this trend before it really takes off.
We just added a VR stock to the Disruption Trader portfolio. This little-known company has partnered with some of the world’s biggest companies. It even just recently announced a partnership with Facebook.
