Let’s take a look at Freedom Checks. Why are they such a big deal and why is the internet going crazy over them. To understand Freedom Checks you need to understand the man behind them, Matt Badiali. Matt Badiali is a writer for Bayan Hill Publishing, the single largest underground investment publishing company. 400,000 readers swarm to Bayan Hill daily, and Matt himself has 100,000 readers of his newsletter Real Wealth Strategist. These aren’t just readers they are subscribers the publication is members-only and costs about $100 a year.
Why is Matt worth $100 a year? Well, first of all, he has been in the natural resources and energy game for over two decades. He calls T. Boone Pickens a friend and gives presentations to Anadarko and Exxon Mobil. Matt has made some ridiculous picks. From .06 a share gold mining stocks that turned into 4,400% gains to healthcare picks, Matt has made good picks. Read more at Agora News about Freedom Checks.
So why is Matt Badiali talking about Freedom Checks? Freedom Checks are simply Master Limited Partnerships or MLPs. MLPs operate under statute 26-F and allow companies in the oil and gas industry (as well as a few other industries) to operate tax-free given they share 90% of their profits with the shareholders of the company. There are 560 plus of these types of companies. MLPs typically perform well, are taxed lower than stock, and usually, have a basis in gas and oil.
Badiali is calling them Freedom Checks because he thinks that reliance on oil is easing up. This is making approaching the oil market a more friendly profitable experience. A couple of the picks that Matt hints at seem to be a few gold companies as well. I’m not a subscriber to his newsletter (which I am not regretting) so I can’t get the exact details of why he is picking gold companies, but it seems like he has some insight on the gold industry.
Overall, Freedom Checks aren’t as crazy and complicated as some are making them out to be. They are stable investments that often generate a return. Badiali’s initial goal of generating hype was successful, now all he has to do is generate results. Knowing Matt, I’m sure he will.
