Top Communication Stocks To Consider Buying This Week
As investors look for the top stocks to buy in the stock market now, communication stocks would often be in consideration. After all, communication stocks are some of the most relatable industries for the average investor. Their product and services are likely something most investors are familiar with. Well, investing in companies that are easily relatable would also give investors a sense of reassurance. Coincidentally, the global pandemic has highlighted the importance of communication services. Many companies were able to continue their business operations due to the excellence of services offered by communication companies.
For instance, companies such as Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ: ZM) took center stage as it offered services that people and businesses alike deem essential. On the other hand, Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) is trying to take communication services to the next level. Its video chat app BlueJeans recently announced that it will begin testing a feature called Spaces, whereby people can hang out as 3D cartoon avatars. Just by a tap on the space bar, people can begin talking in Space. Meanwhile, others can navigate around to hear, with sound coming through louder from people close by in the virtual setting. Could this be the evolution of the industry that we have all been waiting for? I suppose, only time would tell. With that said, here is a list of the top communication stocks in the stock market today.
