Best Performing 5G Stocks of 2020

Updated Sep 15, 2020
The speed of data transfer over telecom networks is often indicated by 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G. The G represents the word 'Generation,' while the numbers indicate the increasing order of new-age networks - that is, the higher the number associated with 'G', the better speed and features that particular network offers. For instance, the 5G network offers much higher speed and connectivity compared to 4G, the 4G network offers much better connectivity compared to 3G, and so on.
The fifth-generation wireless (5G) is the latest in cellular technology, which is expected to significantly improve the speed and responsiveness of the wireless networks. Imagine a surgeon sitting hundreds of miles away being able to perform a surgical procedure remotely using the power of real-time, precision controlled networks, or a wearhouse automated system accurately picking and packing an item from a huge inventory of millions of items - all that is possible in real-time using the powerful 5G network. While a lot of companies are working on the 5G technology and their associated equipment, a few among them stand out from the rest in terms of returns generated from the stock price over a period of time.
This article provides a list of 5G stocks which have generated the highest returns in the year 2020 till date of writing.
