- Nvidia and Meta Platforms are already investing heavily in the Metaverse.
- Developers will likely use tools from Unity and Adobe to create Metaverse content.
- Matterport stands out as a small company that could be a big metaverse success with its digital twin technology.
Think long term. I know these two words are used a lot. But they don’t get enough attention. With the stock market volatility we’ve been experiencing over the past few days, it’s important to keep this concept in mind.
Regardless of how stocks perform over the next week or month, there are a few areas that should be big long-term winners. I believe the Metaverse is one of them. Here are five unstoppable Metaverse stocks that long-term investors can buy in 2022.
Nvidia is one of the best artificial intelligence (AI) titles. It is a top game stock. And this is one of the main actions of Metaverse, both now and in the future.
While many companies are scrambling to differentiate their share of the Metaverse, Nvidia is already marketing a successful product. Its Omniverse platform supports 3D virtual design collaboration and simulation. Customers using Omniverse include manufacturers, engineering companies, and game developers.
Nvidia’s graphics processing units (GPUs) are expected to see huge long-term demand once the Metaverse is built. Few companies can compete with the development of virtual reality applications at the same level as Nvidia.
2. Unity Software
unit software (NASDAQ:MTFX) is a Metaverse stock that I believe could double in value by 2022. The company’s software has been used to develop over 70% of the top 1,000 mobile games. Unity plans to create a similar level of Metaverse content with its platform.
However, programmers aren’t the only ones building the metaverse. Artists will also be heavily involved. With the acquisition of Weta Digital, Unity is now better positioned to meet their needs.
Weta may seem unfamiliar, but you still need to know the company’s work. The company’s platform has been used in the creation of visual effects for numerous TV shows and movies, including Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings.
3. Meta platforms
The metaverse is for the future of Metaplatforms so big that the company ditched its old name, Facebook. While advertising on social media apps is still paying the bills for now, Meta is investing heavily in building the Metaverse.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg has publicly stated that his company’s goal is to make the Metaverse accessible to at least 1 billion people. He believes this will “unleash a much broader creative economy with digital and physical goods.”
Meta is one of the few companies that has the resources to focus on the entire Metaverse ecosystem. It is developing an operating system, e-commerce architecture, social platform, and augmented reality/virtual reality devices to make the metaverse a reality.
Adobe (WKN: 871981) is currently a digital media giant. While the company is probably best known for its Acrobat, Photoshop, and Creative Cloud products, it also has a great product for creating augmented reality experiences called Aero.
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill even thinks “Adobe is the best software for the metaverse.” Unsurprisingly, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen seems to agree. Narayen explained during Adobe’s fourth quarter earnings call in December:
When I think of the 3D web and the metaverse, it means and implies that more and more things that are used to being done in the physical world are being done in the virtual world. And if you think about it like that, if you buy something, if you play games, if you create something, if you create something with other people, if you develop it, then there is no better company in the world than Adobe that is capable of creating this metaverse.
The enormous opportunities that Adobe offers in the Metaverse cannot really be overlooked.
Small businesses could also play an important role in the development of the metaverse. Matterport (NASDAQ:TSFT) is a good example. The company’s technology enables the creation of so-called digital twins of physical assets, including homes, office buildings, boats, and more.
Matterport’s market capitalization is currently only around $4 billion. However, the company is the market leader in geospatial data. Matterport has 6.2 million managed spaces on its platform, about 100 times the rest of the market.
Yet the company captured only a tiny fraction of the $240 billion total addressable market. With the rise of the metaverse, Matterport is expected to experience tremendous growth in the coming years.
