How Matt Badiali Became An Expert In Investing In Natural Resources

Matt Badiali is a scientist by training but has spent his professional career as an investor and writer. He specializes in investing in natural resources such as gold, oil, and forestry. He attended Penn State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in geology and earth sciences in 1992. In 1998 he became a student at Florida State University and graduated in 2000 with a master’s degree in these subjects. For five years he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he intended to earn a Ph.D. However, he joined the financial industry instead of completing his dissertation.

For four years, from 1996 to 2000, Matt Badiali worked as a geologist for Lemenze Environmental Drilling Company. He performed work such as environmental samplings and site visits in this role. It was in 2005 that he started his first financial publication called Stansberry Resources Report. In this role he provided investment ideas to retail investors. He says that investing in natural resources is quite complicated which is why he travels the world to see oil wells, mines, and the like for himself. He shares this information with his readers now in a new publication he started a few years ago, Real Wealth Strategist.

Real Wealth Strategist is published by Banyan Hill Publishing. This financial publication focuses solely on investing in natural resources. Matt Badiali says that this is a sector of the economy that goes through booms and busts and he uses his knowledge to help readers navigate these for maximum profits. In a January 2018 article, for instance, he wrote that people need to start investing in gold miners right away. A few years ago gold hit its low of $1,051 per ounce. Miners quit digging for gold because at that price their costs to extract it outweighed what they could profit from it. This has lead to a shortage of gold and he says it will go up in value by quite a bit in 2018.

Matt Badiali has also been writing about Freedom Checks recently. He has said that 568 companies meet the requirements to issue these to their shareholders. These checks are issued by master limited partnerships in the oil industry. These are called “Statue 26-F” companies and by law they need to send Freedom Checks each year to their shareholders, he says, which can reach anywhere from $124,000 to $643,000 a year.
