Matt Badiali is the founder of Real Wealth Strategist, a financial newsletter he publishes through Banyan Hill Publishing. This newsletter covers investing in natural resources whether that is precious metals, agriculture, oil and natural gas, forestry products, or other commodities. He started out his career as a scientist with a master’s degree in geology. He was working towards his Ph.D. when fate took him into the world of finance.
He says that he had a friend who was in the financial industry and was developing ways for average investors to make solid gains. He wanted to cover natural resource but he didn’t know much about them and didn’t have a scientific background. This friend called Matt Badiali and asked if he wanted to work with him on this project which he accepted. It was in this way that his writing career about natural resources took off. He developed deep experience in business and investing to go along with his scientific knowledge.
His latest financial newsletter was launched in May 2017. He now has a solid base of loyal readers, many of whom have made double-digit or even triple-digit returns by following his advice. He says his approach is to get right to where the action is. He feels he can only truly know whether something is a good investment by seeing it for himself. His journeys to oil wells, gold mines, and the like have taken him around the world to places such as Hong Kong, Switzerland, Iraq, Singapore, and Peru.
Matt Badiali says the most important thing to know when it comes to natural resource investing is that they are very cyclical in nature. The only way you’re going to make money from them he says is if you have a deep understanding of science, markets, finance, and being able to analyze a company.
Looking forward, Matt Badiali says that the world is soon going to change its approach to energy consumption in a major way. He says that electricity will be at the center of everything and how everything will be powered, including cars. He says once someone comes up with a battery that works on the municipal level it will be a huge game-changer.
