Three Ways to Invest in Publicly Traded Companies Considered AR Plays

(InvestorPlace) Publicly traded companies that could be considered augmented reality plays have their hands in many other tech pots beyond just AR, which is still a relatively emerging market. Here are three ways to invest in the AR trend:
1) Tech Giants: Names like Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG)(NASDAQ:GOOGL), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) are just a few established tech companies working augmented reality into their offering, whether through software or hardware.
2) Chip-Makers: Another way to invest in AR is in the companies making AR chips. In May, Chipmaker Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) announced its first-ever chip dedicated solely to AR and virtual reality (VR), called the XR1. Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is the other obvious chip play — one that’s long dominated the overall chip market.
3) Sensor-makers: A key part of augmented reality is sensors, which is why many people have been bullish on Lumentum Holdings (NASDAQ:LITE). Finisar (NASDAQ: FNSR) is another sensing laser bet on the augmented reality trend.
