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.

Shervin Pishevar is unknown to most Americans outside of the elite tech scene. However, to those around the San Francisco Bay area, Shervin Pishevar is something of a living legend. The serial entrepreneur has been a key figure behind some of the biggest names in tech. He was an early investor in Uber and Airbnb. He is also the founder and CEO of An investing firm, one of the most important tech-focused venture capital firms in America.

Recently, Shervin Pishevar took to Twitter in a thought-provoking series of tweets on everything from the economy to the future of Silicon Valley. One of the themes of his tweets is the current overvaluation of U.S. stocks. Shervin Pishevar believes that, contrary to statements from the Federal Reserve, inflation has been rampant since 2009. Rather than being reflected in the CPI, the majority of inflation has occurred in assets, specifically, in equities.

Shervin Pishevar believes that this has led to a dramatically overinflated stock market. With current Shiller P/E ratios hovering around near-record highs of 33, stocks are objectively overvalued by any historic measure. Pishevar believes that this is a direct consequence of the extremely cheap money brought about by the Federal Reserve’s zero interest rate policy as well as its deliberate suppression of bond yields through its quantitative easing programs.

Pishevar foresees a 6,000-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average throughout the coming months, a crash that would seriously shake the country. Pishevar sees interest rates as having nowhere to go but up. This will cause a dramatic decline in the amount of money currently invested by corporations, who have largely spent the last decade using cheap or free money to buy back their own shares. If corporations are suddenly forced to liquidate their stock holdings due to the cheap-money pool drying up, Pishevar’s vision of a dramatic decline in equity values is almost certain to become a reality.

Pishevar is also highly skeptical of the Trump Administration’s tax cuts. He sees big trouble ahead if significant revenues are not raised elsewhere and government deficits continue unabated. This, he says, could potentially lead to dangerous overreactions by the Fed, risking hyperinflation.
