Matt Badiali is an investing expert with a penchant for picking out excellent natural resource investments. He earned a bachelor’s degree in earth sciences while attending Penn State University and received his Master of Science degree in geology while studying at Florida Atlantic University. While working towards his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina, he discovered the finance industry through a friend. This friend knew that Matt Badiali’s geology knowledge would serve him well in the natural resource investing sector and talked him into getting into the field.
Since then, Matt Badiali has worked to key-in investors to specific investing opportunities that he comes across. His interest in doing so led him to working with Banyan Hill Publishing where he is the editor of the Real Wealth Strategist as well as Front Line Profits. He has traveled all over the world to check on his investments and learn more, and this one-of-a-kind experience has given him the tools to understand the world of investing on a deeper level.
Matt Badiali has recently been writing about what he is calling Freedom Checks. These are actually named Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) and are a legitimate investment opportunity. MLPs are traded on major exchanges and include ticker symbols just like any other stock would. Most brokers are unaware of MLPs but many investors have been profiting from payouts from these for years. The facts are that any company who wishes to participate in the MLP program must earn the majority of its revenue from the processing, storing, transporting, or production of natural resources; mainly gas and oil. These companies must also be based out of the United States.
Matt Badiali knows that many people have confused Freedom Checks with Patriot Checks, and he wants investors to know that these are not the same thing. The structure of MLPs allows them to yield higher payouts, and this is why he has been trying to tell investors about them for some time. The fracking industry in the United States has created a boom in the oil and gas sector, and this will most likely continue to fuel MLPs for some time to come.
