Matt Badiali Sticks With the Basic Hard Assets
Matt Badiali began editing his newsletter Real Wealth Strategist for Banyan Hill Publishing in 2017. Some investors might think his emphasis on “real” wealth or hard assets is misplaced in the modern high-tech area, but he appreciates the value of the physical world.
Badiali majored in geology and earth science while he was at college. He intended to become a geologist, not a businessperson or investment analyst. However, while working on his doctorate he made friends with an expert investor who needed someone with his scientific background to evaluate investment opportunities in the natural resources sectors.
Although mining is not as sexy as software, computers require minerals and many people retain a love of the precious metals gold and silver. Oil is still the major fuel for automobiles and a geopolitical concern. And people still need to eat food.
Matt Badiali quickly learned he could not properly analyze mines and oil wells while sitting behind a desk, so he became a world traveler, journeying to such exotic places as Papua New Guinea, Haiti, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, Iraq and Peru. He has to see everything for himself. Then he grills the company executives to discover the truth behind their operations. He meets with industry leaders such as T. Boone Pickens and Ross Beaty.
He soon learned how to use his scientific knowledge to evaluate natural sector companies as businesses and investments. As editor of Real Wealth Strategist, he strives to give his readers recommendations they can follow to grow their own wealth without leaving home. They are not able to visit remote jungle locations as Badiali does, and they don’t have the depth of geologic knowledge he does.
In every issue, Badiali tells his readers what is going on in the sector. He tracks on the trends and events affecting the market. He supplies them with the names of the latest companies he recommends they invest in. He tracks the market performance of all his past recommendations. Every day, Badiali spends a lot of time reading The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg to keep up with the markets. Thanks to him, his readers can grow their natural resources portfolios without duplicating his research. He also uses the Bloomberg Terminal for online tracking of the markets.
When he makes a mistake, which sometimes happens, Badiali acknowledges it as soon as possible, sells it, and moves on. He accepts the responsibility because no analyst is correct all the time.Visit:http://inspirery.com/matt-badiali/
