The iPhone 13 features a Qualcomm Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) X60 chip that supports satellite communications. Reports emerged in 2019 that the giant technology company has a “top-secret team” working on satellite technology for direct communications, allowing it to beam data to devices.

It looks like things are getting closer to fruition after the latest developments. As a result, smaller 5G companies like GSAT could be poised to benefit significantly, thereby sparking a surge in their stock prices.

From a valuation perspective, Globalstar shares trade at a steep price-sales ratio of 19.66 and a P/B of 6.22, making the stock less attractive to value investors. Moreover, analysts expect GSAT earnings per share to decline by 821% this year before rising at an average annual rate of 15% over the next five years.

Therefore, growth investors may opt for alternatives in the market. However, following the recent iPhone 13 news and the promising future of the 5G market, Globalstar could become a high-growth stock in the coming quarters.

Therefore, although the stock seems significantly overvalued, it may not be too late to buy, especially for investors targeting long-term buys.
