The Top Tech Stock That Isn’t Playing Games

It’s no secret that the stock market is soaring right now and I’m sure you already know that many stocks are hitting new all-time highs by the day. In fact, over the last year, the S&P has bumped up by more than 14% during the first few quarters of the year. But there is one industry that has helped push this limit and as a result, has positioned a few key companies to benefit in a BIG WAY.

Which industry am I talking about? Technology and the proof might shock you.  While the market is up a healthy 14%+ this year, tech stocks are crushing milestones. The iShares US Tech ETF (IYW) is up by more than 30%, the Vanguard Information Technology ETF has jumped by more than 35%, and the ProShares Ultra Technology ETF has moved by as much as 75.6% within the last 12 months alone!

So what does this mean for you? Opportunity.

Significant advancements in tech have helped propel some of the most important market moves, and the mainstream acceptance of things like augmented reality, virtual reality, and mobile-based platforms have given rise to an open platform for investors to benefit the most. Believe it or not, one industry that has begun to take on a life of its own has been gaming and esports!

Millennial Esports (MLLLF) Is Poised To Grab Early Investor Interest Based on 5 Key Principles & Near-Term Growth Drivers Could Mean Big Opportunity.

The esports industry may hit a serious growth spurt this year, according to new data from Newzoo. In its annual report, the marketing researcher is predicting 2018 revenues to hit $905 million, which is a staggering 38% increase from 2017’s $655 million. Brand investment is expected to make a significant impact with an increase of 48% year-over-year.

The esports industry is also expected to cross the billion-dollar threshold in 2019, with revenues projected to hit $1.1 billion and by 2021, revenues could reach $1.65 billion. All that equates to a possible perfect storm for those who like to be ahead of the curve and take advantage of the incredible momentum that the tech industry has begun to see.

Why eSports & Why Now?

The eSports market is growing, and its audience is rapidly approaching the magnitude of the world’s most highly viewed media events. And for Millennial Esports (MLLLF), the company could be getting a nice boost from a little company you may know, Amazon (AMZN)! Let me explain: Today, Amazon’s GameOn is being used by nWay, Game Insight, Umbrella Games, Nazara, Mindstorm, Mokuni, Avix, and GameCloud Studios in games ranging from casual to core across different genres. Millennial Esports’ (MLLLF) Eden Games is using GameOn to scale the size of the competitions it runs in its racing game, Gear.Club

ESports & The Big Money Bet

The esports industry is growing at an exponential rate year-over-year. Media rights, advertising, merchandise sales, sponsorship opportunities, and revenue streams are all increasing by double digits each year  — and we see no end in sight. Taking the four trends above into account, marketers should not view esports as building toward a bubble.

Esports also sees substantial investment from many Blue Chip companies. We’re talking companies like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jack in the Box, Intel, Snickers, Coca-Cola are all diving into the space, innovating across an industry that has already generated  $1.5 billion in 2017 alone.

As the history of eSports continues to unfold, media giants such as ESPN and Turner are broadcasting eSports tournaments and competitions. And in 2014, Amazon acquired Twitch, the live streaming video platform that has been and continues to be the leader in online gaming broadcasts.

Alphabet’s (GOOGL) YouTube made its most significant eSports investment to date by signing a multi-year broadcasting deal with Faceit to stream the latter’s Esports Championship Series.

To put in perspective how big eSports is becoming, a Google search for “lol” does not produce “laughing out loud” as the top result. Instead, it points to League of Legends, one of the most popular competitive games in existence. The game has spawned a worldwide community called the League of Legends Championship Series, more commonly known as LCS or LOL eSports.

The key right now is being ready for the big move that this industry could be about to see. Just like the countless number of “smaller” companies that are setting up a partnership and even acquisition deals with some of the biggest names in tech, Millennial Esports (MLLLF) investors could be in pole position.

With interest in, and downloads of, Gear.Club growing in response to initiatives such as the recently completed #DriveAnF1Car competition and the PASPA ruling making possible new applications for the Millennial Esports Tournament Platform, the company is currently pursuing strategic growth on multiple fronts.

US Government Just Opened The Flood Gates

In response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down PAPSA, thereby giving individual States the right to legislate sports wagering, Millennial Esports (MLLLF) is exploring possible new applications for the Company’s competitive tournament platform.

As part of a repositioning of its assets with the Company’s focus on Esports Racing, Millennial is also exploring strategic options for joint ventures, as well as sales and licensing opportunities, for the tournament platform and the Arena at Neonopolis, the firm’s purpose-built Las Vegas Esports arena.

esports experience

I talked a lot about the significant opportunity ahead for anything from branding to marketing, advertising, and competitive events. Since acquiring Eden Games in January of this year, Millennial Esports (MLLLF) has been pursuing a global competition strategy to drive downloads of Gear.Club.  Millennial’s most recent innovation in Esports racing is cash prize tournaments held every Thursday-Sunday at the Arena.
