The BEST Metaverse Stocks To BUY NOW!

So, recently I’ve been getting more and more interested in virtual reality and the metaverse. I think it will be the next big thing for the world and for people who want to invest so they can multiply their money.

It’s not just me that think this, Facebook has recently changed their name to Meta, and other tech giants are all racing to create virtual worlds for us to play, work, and spend our money in.

Good for them. But how do I invest to make money out of this? Well, that’s exactly what we’re gonna be discussing today.

I’ll be breaking down why the metaverse is so exciting, how I spot investment opportunities and invest in $20,000 of my own money in some of the best stocks I believe in. So, you can see exactly how I do it.

Okay, let’s get right on with it. First, let’s talk about investing with a vision. Warren Buffet, one of the richest investors in the world, famously said that if he had never sold a stock, then he would be a much richer man than he is now.

Therefore, by investing in companies that fit your vision, you’ll naturally have more belief in them and hold them through the good times and the bad.

If you think about it, that’s the entire point of investing. You’re not invested in a company for today or tomorrow, it’s about the long-term growth of both the company and your money.

So all we have to do is predict the future. It’s as simple as that. Well, of course, that would be great. Just imagine if you could see 10 years into the future and invest in the next big companies, you’d make a killing.

Unfortunately, we can’t do that. So, we have to try and make an educated guess of what our future will look like and invest for the long-term.

A great example of this is the move to renewable energies and electric vehicles. Currently the majority of people drive gas cars, as they are the most affordable option.

And looking back at my racing days, they certainly sound the best too, but even I’ve switched to an electric car and I’m sure as they become more affordable, more people will start buying them as well.

On top of this, there was a lot of pressure on the governments to hit reduce CO2 emissions targets. So, the switch to electric transport seems inevitable.

Lots of people have had this vision of the future and have been rewarded generously by investing in companies like Tesla and Enphase Energy. Imagine buying Tesla even a year ago at $400, you’d more than doubled your money in just a year.

And that’s what could be next for the metaverse. I personally, I believe the metaverse is the next big thing that we’ve all been waiting for. And that’s why it’s so important to understand research and invest as soon as possible.

I may sound a bit bullish on the metaverse, what if it takes over real life? Yes, that’s definitely a concern. Some people may enjoy the metaverse too much that it takes over their whole life.

However, I do think this is a natural progression from the internet and does have some great use cases. The booming crypto and NFTs has shown that people are ready to invest in digital assets.

So, I think it’s only a matter of time until we see companies launching their own versions of the metaverse. I’m really excited as this gives some already huge companies a way to grow, that we hadn’t even considered before.

This could open them up to a whole new world of profits and opportunities, which in turn would cause their stock value to go to the moon and investors to make huge returns.

I certainly want to be part of that wild ride. Think of the metaverse like internet 2.0, more immersive and useful than ever before. You could hang out with friends, who are remotely from home, but feel like you’re in the office, and even sell digital items all in virtual reality.

The lockdowns have really accelerated the move to VR. As I know personally, I was doing a lot of work from home and having video meetings, and it just wasn’t the same as talking to people in person.

The metaverse will aim to bridge this gap between technology and real life interaction. Maybe eventually you won’t even be able to tell the difference a bit like the movie inception, which so many companies battling out to create metaverse as it seems impossible to know which one will succeed.

However, personally, I don’t think any of them will be successful on their own. Imagine using the internet, but instead of having the option to go on lots of different websites, you are limited to just Facebook.

Imagine the amount it carry on that. It’ll be a nightmare. The internet has shown us that it’s possible to have a free space that brings together lots of companies.

And that’s how I see the true metaverse operating. I don’t think anyone would be happy handing over their whole digital life to just one corporation. This opens up more opportunities than even I can fathom because not just one company will benefit from the metaverse.

This means you don’t have to be lucky and YOLO your money into one winning stock. Instead it’s a much better idea to build a diversified portfolio of companies we’ve met at various plans.

This way you’re hedging your bets, and at the end of the day, they could all end up being crucial parts of the metaverse.

Now let’s break down my favorite metaverse stocks. And as I mentioned earlier, I’m gonna be investing $20,000 of my own money split differently, depending on how much I like each stock.

I wanna do this, ’cause I think there are too many people that talk about investing, but don’t actually put their money where their mouth is. I also think it will be a fun experiment to build this portfolio together. So we’re able to track the performance in future.

Stock number one is Unity Software. It can be easy to get carried away with the idea of a metaverse, but the reality is it hasn’t been built yet. It’s kind of like the gold rush.

Many companies are trying to create the best metaverse, but only a few are providing the necessary tools. After all, without the right software, this wouldn’t even be possible.

Unity Software is currently a video game software development company, and they’re a pretty big deal as they are worth $51 billion. Unity Software are responsible for a lot of popular mobile apps and video games like “Pokémon Go” for example.

They also have a pretty cool business model as they charge monthly subscriptions to use their software. This means that they constantly have money just rolling in.

Something that recently caught my eye was Unity Software recently acquired Weta Digital’s tech division, which is the visual effects studio behind huge films like “Avatar” and “Lord of the rings.”

This deal is set to have costs $1.6 billion and could play a large role in helping Unity take on the metaverse. This gives Unity a huge advantage as these world-class tools could allow people to create masterpieces within the metaverse.

The future of the metaphors is 3D experiences, and that’s what Weta excels at. This combined with Unity is already a great software and they could have the perfect building blocks for the metaverse.

Their stock is currently our at time highs, but they’re beating earnings targets and expanding. And I think there is huge growth to come. So, I’m going to invest a thousand dollars into Unity Software.

Stock number two is Snapchat. I think it’s pretty safe to say we all know what Snapchat is. When you think of Snapchat, you might not first connect it with the metaverse.

However, they have always been focused on innovation and their silly filters are actually groundbreaking, augmented reality technology. Just imagine if you could put on a pair of glasses and project digital elements onto the real world, it would be so useful for having face-to-face meetings or even holographic computers like Tony Stark.

They’ve even attempted something like this before with Snapchat glasses. But I think it might’ve been a little bit before its time. What is even more interesting is that Snapchat has over 200 million daily active users with more than 50% being between the ages of 15 and 25.

This is important as studies have shown that this demographic is far more likely to experiment with augmented reality. In other words, Snapchat is already preparing users for the metaverse by normalizing virtual and augmented experiences from an early age.

Some experts even claimed Snapchat is way ahead of Facebook when it comes to the metaverse, as they have already created characters and plot them on the map for everyone to see and interact with.

Just think about it. The best features usually come out first on Snapchat and then get copied by Instagram. One of the first things I was asked to do when I set up my Snapchat account was to scan my face to create a bit emoji.

I’m still freaked at how handsome he is. The advertisers will be a big deal in the metaverse. I think the Snapchat has nailed them before anyone else. Just think about it.

Younger generations are getting very comfortable with this and it isn’t a far-fetched idea that they will soon start buying skins to get out their avatars.

Of course, this is already happening in popular video games like “Fortnite”, but it’s not digital item, Snapchat can start selling. Their augmented reality technology could allow you to try on a pair of sneakers without even leaving the house.

It mentioned that they just took a small percentage from each sale. The potential is huge. So, I’m gonna invest $2,700 in Snapchat. It’s taken a bit of a beating recently, so I think it’s gonna be a good buy.

Stock number three is Matterport. This is a company you may not have heard of, but they specialize in digitizing the real world. Imagine how in demand this technology could be if you want to create a digital version of your house inside the metaverse and invite your friends over.

Currently, you can place the Matterport camera down on the ground, scan the inside of your property and digitize it. This allows you to perform full house walkthroughs on a computer without actually being there.

And actually you can imagine this came in very useful during the pandemic. So, currently we’re just scratching the surface of Matterport’s true potential. And it seems like other investors agree as since Facebook rebranded as Meta, Matterport shares have skyrocketed.

This is probably due to their existing working relationship. As in July, 2021, Matterport announced that it was working with Facebook to build the largest database of 3D spaces in the world.

This collaboration could be the first step towards something much bigger in the metaverse. The opportunities to the world are huge. Matterport themselves say they’re over 20 billion spaces across 4 billion buildings that could be duplicated online.

This would offer a great way to build spaces in the metaverse that are appealing to customers. Imagine having the ability to visit castles or mansions all around the world without ever having to leave your home.

During my research, I uncovered that if Matterport which charged us $1 to maintain a digital copy of a customer space each month, the company could be able to make more than $280 billion annually.

This stock really fits in with my vision of the future. So, I’m going to be investing $4,000. It might be a bit riskier than the others as it’s a much smaller company, but I do think it has the potential for amazing growth over the next five to 10 years.

Stock number four is Disney. So, we’re going from a small company to one of the biggest in the world. And you may think how can Disney get any bigger?

Well, the magic phrase here is intellectual property and Disney owns most of the entertainment we watch, like “Star Wars”, Marvel Studios, and Pixar Films. That combined with Disney World, Disney Land and their cruise ships, you can probably see what I’m getting at here.

Disney could create a full blown Disneyland metaverse with all the characters or movies they own. It would be absolutely amazing. I mean, I’d still rather go to the real thing, but sometimes it’s just not possible.

And I can definitely see the appeal in a VR version, but it doesn’t stop there. There are plenty of possibilities for augmented reality too.

Just imagine being able to bring Disney characters to life at birthday parties. Kids love having bouncy castles at their birthday. So, why not bring their favorite characters long in AR?

Disney brought in revenues of $65 billion in 2020. And once their metaverse ideas launch, this could drastically be ramped up. Their business seems really stable with Disney Plus for people at home, Disney Land for travelers, And of course, dominating the movie theaters, a metaverse seems like the next logical step to take.

Because of this, I’m going to invest $5,400. To be honest, I just can’t imagine a world in which Disney isn’t part of the metaverse.

Stock number five is my highest conviction play, Meta previously known as Facebook. Meta seem to be paving the way when it comes to the metaverse.

I mean, they’ve literally changed their name to Meta. That’s a big statement to make. No, but seriously Meta isn’t the most loved company in the world, and I do agree.

Zuckerberg he’s a bit like a robot. Why else would he deactivate my Instagram account for over three months? But we can’t ignore that Meta are an insanely profitable company with a market cap of over $900 billion in a 2020 revenue of over $85 billion.

So, it’s safe to say they can afford to throw money at this whole first thing and get it right. Meta stock has taken a bit of a beating lately, but I’m taking this as a buying opportunity.

And since the whole Meta announcement, I’ve been buying in more and more. The possibility to monetize in the metaverse are endless for Meta, and I’m so excited to see what they’ll do next.

They also have the Oculus VR headsets, which make the metaverse all the more plausible. And they’re already working on new stylist glasses for both AR and VR.

Just think you could look as stylish as me. Meta aren’t taking things slow, and have introduced Horizon Home, Horizon Work Rooms, and more. This will allow you to create places for your friends to hang out and also work from the metaverse.

At the end of the day, they are investing billions of dollars into building their metaverse and advertising it. Zuckerberg actually believes that the metaverse is going to be the successor to the mobile and the internet.

So with that said, I’m going to invest $6,700. If you see this Zuck, think of it as a thank you for reactivating my Instagram account.

The bonus stock number as you can’t actually invest right now, is Epic Games. They’ve already been doing the metaverse for ages. Well, so off, they’re the creators of “Fortnite” and kids basically lived on this game during the pandemic.

It has also even had in-game events, such as a virtual concert by Travis Scott, which was attended by over 12 million people. This just shows the demand for events like this.

There’s some of the biggest concerts with only half a million people. Of course these were in real life, but it really shows what’s possible.

Epic games recently announced that they’ve raised $1 billion to support their metaverse project. And I can see them smashing it out of the park.

Of course, Epic Games are not public yet, so unfortunately I can’t invest in them. It’s rumored they will be going public soon. So, I’ll definitely be looking to invest in them when they do.

So, I believe the metaverse is the next big opportunity that will change the game. Kind of like when the internet was created or the birth of the iPhone.

Just remember before you invest in any of the stocks I mentioned, please do your own research. In order for you to hold these long-term, through the hard times, you need to really believe in them. I think it’d be really fun to track their performance together.
