(C) Reuters. 3 Stocks to Buy on Morgan Stanley’s Prediction that the Metaverse Will be Worth $8 Trillion
The metaverse is gaining steam with Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) changing its name and companies investing in building the new digital frontier. Moreover, metaverse or virtual reality is being used in several industries, especially in real estate. Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) expects the metaverse to be an $8 trillion addressable market soon. Hence, investing in fundamentally sound metaverse stocks Microsoft (MSFT), Autodesk (NASDAQ:ADSK), and Fastly (NYSE:FSLY) could be profitable.The metaverse refers to a centralized virtual world parallel to the physical world of reality. Either in virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR), or on a screen, the metaverse is predicted to provide an overlap of the physical and digital realities, which has been gaining massive interest lately. Facebook has recently rebranded to Meta, changing its name to Meta Platforms Inc. (FB). “We believe the Metaverse will be the successor to the mobile internet,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said.
Now, multiple companies are building their virtual realms, intending to attract people in the form of their digital ‘avatars.’ Moreover, the real-estate business in the metaverse is gaining some steam. In November, in a virtual reality world called ‘Decentraland,’ operated by the Metaverse Group reported, 116 parcels of land sold for an equivalent of about $2.5 million in cryptocurrencies.
Last month, Wall Street firm Morgan Stanley (MS) predicted the metaverse as an $8 trillion addressable market and likely to become the “next-generation social media, streaming and gaming platform.” Therefore, metaverse-related stocks Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Autodesk, Inc. (ADSK), and Fastly, Inc. (FSLY) might be solid buys based on their strong fundamentals.
