5G is the new wireless standard that promises lightning-fast, low-latency wireless communications that will usher in a new era of futuristic technology applications. Three of the best-positioned 5G stocks that still trade at attractive valuations include wireless carrier T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS), leading chip manufacturer Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM), and memory chip giant Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU), all of which look like solid 5G plays to add to your portfolio this summer. Probably not, which is why T-Mobile looks so compelling today.
While Verizon (VZ) boycotts advertising campaigns in the social media platform of Facebook, Nokia (NOK) secures 5G deal with Taiwan Mobile.

Marketing veteran and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk weighs in on the controversy swirling around Facebook.
Verizon's decision to join the growing boycott against Facebook and Twitter risks hurting the social media giants where it hurts most: their advertising revenue. The #StopHateforProfit campaign launched June 17 by the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP and other advocacy groups seeks to pressure the social media giants into doing more to curtail racist and violent content on their websites. Patagonia said it made the move because the social media giant failed to take steps to stop the spread on its platform of “hateful lies and dangerous propaganda.”
Holding a stock over a very long period of time allows us to look past the day-to-day volatility of the market and allow a company to grow into what it can be years or decades from now. With that time horizon in mind, Disney (NYSE: DIS), Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Verizon (NYSE: VZ), Visa (NYSE: V), and Axon (NASDAQ: AAXN) are my buy-and-hold-forever stocks. Cable has been disrupted by streaming, and new entrants like Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) are now among the strongest players in the industry.
In the latest trading session, Verizon Communications (VZ) closed at $55.13, marking a +0.8% move from the previous day.

Marc Benioff doubled down on his years-long criticism of the social network, which is being battered by a new controversy.
Advertiser momentum against Facebook's content and monetization policies continues to grow. Last night, Verizon (which owns TechCrunch) said it will be pausing advertising on Facebook and Instagram "until Facebook can create an acceptable solution that makes us comfortable and is consistent with what we’ve done with YouTube and other partners." Then today, it was joined by consumer goods giant Unilever, which said it will halt all U.S. advertising on Facebook, Instagram (owned by Facebook) and even Twitter, at least until the end of the year.

Verizon's (VZ) voice of dissent is likely to encourage other blue-chip firms to follow its footsteps and exert pressure on Facebook to fall in line.
Unilever says it will pull digital advertising spending from Facebook and Twitter in the US until at least the end of this year, citing concerns about the proliferation of divisive content and hate speech on the platforms in the lead-up to the presidential election. Coca-Cola also announced on Friday it was pausing all social media advertising globally for a month, with chief executive James Quincey saying in a statement that there was “no place for racism on social media” and that the company would use the time to review its advertising policies. The decisions mark the latest blow to Facebook from big advertising clients, coming just a day after US telecoms group Verizon joined a growing boycott of the social media group.
Verizon is the biggest name yet to pause advertising on Facebook for the way it handles hate speech. On Thursday (June 25), the U.S. carrier joined dozens of companies boycotting Facebook's lax approach when it comes to harassment, misinformation, and incitement to violence. Ice cream brand Ben & Jerry's and the outdoor gear companies Patagonia and The North Face were among those who also backed the Stop Hate for Profit campaign. Verizon's announcement it had joined the boycott was a bigger blow to Facebook's efforts to contain the growing revolt. U.S. civil rights groups are urging brands to join the boycott. The Anti-Defamation League said in a letter to advertisers - it found a Verizon ad on Facebook-next to a video laced with anti-Semitic rhetoric from the conspiracy group QAnon. Facebook said it's working with civil rights organizations. Carolyn Everson, the company's vice president of global business, said quote "We respect any brand's decision and remain focused on the important work of removing hate speech and providing critical voting information." This week advertisers said outreach to them has intensified as Facebook worked to contain damage... without pledging specific changes. Earlier this week, Procter & Gamble, another top Facebook spender, said it would carry out a review of where its ads were showing up - and stop buying ads where it found hateful content.
Verizon is the biggest yet to join the advertising boycott, which has gained the backing of dozens of U.S. companies, and its announcement was a blow to Facebook's efforts to contain the growing revolt. "We're pausing our advertising until Facebook can create an acceptable solution that makes us comfortable," a Verizon representative said. The Anti-Defamation League said in a letter to advertisers on Thursday it had found a Verizon ad on Facebook appearing next to a video containing anti-Semitic rhetoric from conspiracy group QAnon.
Verizon is joining an escalating movement to siphon advertising away from Facebook in an effort to pressure the company into doing more to prevent racist and violent information from being shared on its social networking service. The decision announced Thursday by one of the world's biggest telecommunications companies is part of an boycott organized by civil rights and other advocacy groups under the rallying cry of “#StopHateforProfit." The protest, spurred by last month's killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, is supposed to last through July. “We have strict content policies in place and have zero tolerance when they are breached, we take action," New York-based Verizon said in a statement.
