Matt Badiali is an investor and a geologist. He is a unique investor who does not depend on the information he gets from the media or other analysts. He believes in his own assessment and judgment. If he has to make a decision, it has to get the raw data or visit the location and check it himself. Secondary data and information about anything that is happening in the mining sector do not appeal to him. Through his approach of seeing is believing, he has been to many countries to check mining fields especially in the fields of oil and gas. He has been to Singapore, Hong Kong, Iraq, Switzerland, Papua New Guinea, and others.
Matt Badiali has also interviewed many CEOs in different locations around the globe to understand how mining companies are doing. He has analyzed geologic data and now his understanding of the industry is one of the best. He can tell when investment from this industry is good and bad. He does not just take what others are saying; he applies his own understanding to get things going.
Matt Badiali likes to make projections about some of the happenings in the industry. Many projections that he has made in the past have come true, and therefore he is one of the people who can reliably help an average investor to create wealth just by following his recommendation. For instance, in the 2008 financial crisis, he invested in an asset valued at $0.06 per share and later sold it at $2.64 two years later. This example is just one of the many we can list.
In 2018, Matt Badiali has been in the news for many reasons, the most common one being the idea of freedom checks. This idea has been the talk of the town for some time. It is an idea which he introduced through a controversial advert that got many people confused on what it was. He later explained the whole idea and those who invested wisely are now making good money. Freedom Checks involved an investment strategy where one was investing in companies which enjoy tax relief from the government. They are known as Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs).
