Matt Badiali is the man endorsing freedom checks, the somewhat scammy looking investment opportunity that promises big returns. According to Badiali freedom checks are, “the biggest cash grab in the U.S.”, but these are not just pretty words.
This is an investment expert sharing insider information. Matt Badiali is actually trying to help people invest in MLP stakes. Master Limited Partnerships are companies that sell non-controlling stakes to investors to gain capital and take advantage of significant tax breaks. One requirement for these tax breaks is that the companies pay 90% of their profits to investors before taxes. This is why Badiali is so adamant about freedom checks, all that is required is a simple investment. An investment that can be made for as little as ten dollars.
In his freedom checks videos Badiali does his best to explain the investment in simple terms. These simple terms involve holding up a check and saying, “Come get it”. Despite their suspicious appearance, the videos have made many search Badiali’s name only to find his extensive experience in the market staring back at them. Badiali is a guru in natural resource investment. A geologist and expert investor he personally investigates mines and well or companies across the globe. He garners first-hand information from workers and CEOs and makes accurate projections on beneficial investments. All of which he shares through two newsletters that he writes for Banyan Hill Publishing. It is this expertise that has brought him the inside track on MLPs.
The payout of an MLP is known as a return of capital. It is personal check delivered monthly or quarterly to investors that own stakes in respective companies. MLP stakes are as legitimate as stocks, have the same tradeable value that stocks have, and bear the same profits and risks. They are legitimate investment commodities, no scam in sight. Investing in an MLP will gain you as much a percentage as the amount of the investment you have made. The percentage also is related to the company itself, and how well it performs.
