Cooper was among the few analysts to spot the financial crisis of 2008, the top of subprime and Alt-A, the death of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, and New Century Financial, and even the Dow’s collapse to 6,500, as well as its recovery. He even called for gold to rally well above $1.500 when it traded under $600.
Metaverse

By now, you’ve heard a lot about the metaverse.

While it may take years before the metaverse goes mainstream, if it can eventually deliver on its potential, its impact on the world, and on investors could be significant.

Better, according to analysts at Emergen Research, the metaverse market could be worth up to $828.95 billion by 2028.  Even analysts at Bloomberg Intelligence says it could reach $800 billion by 2024.  In short, we could be looking at a massive game-changing market here.

Plus, with big tech pouring money into the metaverse, some say the market could eventually be worth trillions.  According to Goldman Sachs, we could be looking at an $8 trillion opportunity.  

“We look at the digital economy today, which is roughly about 20%, 25% of the global economy … We see the digital economy continuing to grow, and on top of that we see a virtual economy that will grow within and alongside this digital economy,” noted the firm.

So, how can we profit from that – and collect dividends?  Here are three ideas.

Microsoft (MSFT)

Dividend Yield: 0.8%

Annual Dividend: $2.48

Microsoft wants to be a top leader in the metaverse market.

It’s part of the reason it said it’s acquiring Activision Blizzard in an all-cash $68.7 billion deal.

In fact, “Acquiring Activision will help jump start MSFT’s broader gaming endeavors and ultimately its move into the metaverse with gaming the first monetization piece of the metaverse in our opinion,” Wedbush analyst Dan Ives said, as quoted by CNN.

With it, it could change the way companies meet, collaborate, and interact using avatars, or even holograms.  In addition, Meta Platforms is working with Microsoft to integrate its Workplace app with Microsoft Teams to create a “streamlined flow of remote work-related communication between businesses,” says The Street.

Plus, “the company is adapting its signature software products to create a more corporate version of the metaverse — a concept promoted by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg that promises to let users live, work and play within interconnected virtual worlds,” says Bloomberg.

Nike Inc. (NKE)

Dividend Yield: 0.82%

Annual Dividend: $1.22

Nike is aggressively pushing into the metaverse, too.

For one, the company just filed seven trademark applications, as it enters the metaverse.  

According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Nike filed applications on Oct. 27 for “Nike,” the brand’s famous slogan “Just Do It,” and its swoosh logo. The following day, two more applications, for the “Air Jordan” and “Jumpman” logos, were filed. In total, seven different applications have been submitted.

Two, Nike recently acquired RTKFT, a virtual sneaker company that focuses on fashion. 

And three, “Nike has also recently created a virtual world called Nikeland which was developed by the Brainiac Commerce e-commerce platform. This platform gives other technologically-based merchants and brands the ability to drive scalable consumer traffic to their products and offers a fully managed solution. One sees the future develop with strong support by vendor/partners,” says Forbes.

Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM)

Dividend Yield: 1.48%

Annual Dividend: $2.72

QCOM could be another strong beneficiary, as well.

For one, QCOM is collaborating with Microsoft to expand and accelerate AR for the metaverse.  

“Our goal is to inspire and empower others to collectively work to develop the metaverse future – a future that is grounded in trust and innovation,” said Rubén Caballero, corporate vice president Mixed Reality, Microsoft. 

“With services like Microsoft Mesh, we are committed to delivering the safest and most comprehensive set of capabilities to power metaverses that blend the physical and digital worlds, ultimately delivering a shared sense of presence across devices,” he added.

Two, according to QCOM CEO Cristiano Amon, as quoted by ZDNet.com, “If you are going to spend time in the Metaverse, Snapdragon is going to be your ticket,” said Amon, referring to the company’s mobile application processor and modem platform.”
