InvestorPlace Logo By Neil George of InvestorPlace | Slide 1 of 8: [Editor's note: This article was updated on Aug. 10, 2020, to remove incorrect information on Ericsson.] It’s true that fifth generation (5G) telecommunications is more an advertising line than a real thing for most people. But that is changing and 5G stocks are quickly becoming a hot investment theme. All major phone makers are making sure their newest models are 5G-ready. And telecom equipment makers are running a full speed to build out 5G equipment and networks around the globe. What’s more, there’s another feud between the U.S. and China on 5G technology. While China has been a leader in 5G development and has already woven into telecom systems in the rural U.S., Washington is voicing concerns over the security of the networking equipment. China says it’s simply a ploy to hamstring Chinese companies, while U.S. and European companies catch up in the 5G market. Wherever the truth lies, there’s plenty of opportunity with 5G stocks, since China’s privately held Huawei isn’t likely to run away with all the global 5G business.            7 Travel Stocks to Buy Banking On Pent-Up Demand          My selection of the best 5G stocks includes the following seven stocks:  Telefon AB LM Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC)  Samsung Electronics (OTCMKTS:SSNLF)  Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR)  Corporate Office Properties (NYSE:OFC)  BCE Inc (NYSE:BCE)  AT&T (NYSE:T)  Verizon (NYSE:VZ) For an in-depth look at the biggest winners in the 5G revolution, InvestorPlace advisor Matt McCall's 5G Highway Super Portfolio considers many facets to the movement that investors are overlooking. But these seven stocks in particular remain among the best 5G stocks to buy.
