SRVR Index – 5G & Cloud Infrastructure
SRVR is the sophisticated backbone of data centers, wireless towers, and fiber optic networks that moves the economy’s critical data and analytics. SRVR represents the foundational infrastructure for the intelligence revolution, superseding the Computing and Industrial Revolutions before it. Cloud computing, 5G, and other ‘themes’ are not even close to encompassing what SRVR represents.

Infrastructure vs. Software, Hardware, Carriers
SRVR Index is recognizing revenues now for the buildout of the 5G as SRVR constituents are mission-critical infrastructure assets. The first quarter of earnings demonstrated that carriers, semiconductors, software and hardware companies have significant expenditures and are not recognizing meaningful revenues from 5G. The earnings results ended up taking down a 5G communications index more than 10% while the SRVR index was up over 4% leading to an outperformance of 14% in less than a month.
