Most Americans have probably heard of this idea of the US becoming energy independent. What most people don’t know is that there is an investment strategy that was created to help the US achieve this objective. The investment strategy is called Freedom Checks, and it was geologist Matt Badiali who is trying to get the word out on this unknown method to make megabucks in the stock market. After creating an ad that explained the idea of investing in Freedom Checks, Matt Badiali was accused of promoting a fraudulent investing practice. One promise that Matt Badiali promoted was that investors could earn a passive income every three months, and their earnings would not be subject to income taxes. This one promise alone was enough to not take Mr. Badiali seriously.
After much scrutiny, most people now admit that Freedom Checks are a real investment option. Matt Badiali was trying to get investors to buy stock in Master Limited Partnerships. These are natural resource companies, the majority of which are in the oil and gas industry. These natural resource companies came about in the 1980s, a time when the United States Congress was worried that the US relied too much on the Middle East for its energy needs. Today, some oil-producing countries in the Middle East have seen their production numbers begin to fall, whereas oil production in the United States has been increasing thanks to oil companies applying fracking technology.
Matt Badiali is anticipating higher oil prices next summer because that is when the sanctions that have been placed on Iran will really start to take hold. According to Matt, higher oil prices are going to really hurt the US consumer, especially at the gas pump. However, he feels that higher oil prices are going to benefit smart investors who position now. Matt Badiali feels higher oil prices will only make MLPs more profitable, which is why he is promoting them. Investors will benefit from higher share prices, and receive substantially greater Freedom Checks once the price of oil really starts to move. Higher oil prices will also mean higher share prices for an MLP investment, giving investors even more gains.
