“Matt Badiali’s Real Wealth StrategistAn Investment Newsletter for Commodities”  

Who is Matt Badiali? 

Matt Badiali is a well-known geologist and financial analyst. His work has taken him around the world to places including Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Iraq, Singapore, Haiti, Turkey and Switzerland, all in efforts to get in the trenches when it comes to researching natural resources and commodities.   As a geologist, Matt Badiali worked with drilling companies and environmental companies to identify certain red flags, like the skill set of crewman, how long it takes to drill, how operations run and more.   When it comes to oil drilling, by analyzing the crew, you can infer a lot of information about the health and potential of the company. At that point, Matt would look into the inner workings of the company, its structure and financials — all to reach one data point: whether or not the company is solid enough for him to recommend investing in.   Matt Badiali marries his training as a geologist with his experience as an investor to uncover companies that present great profits in the stock market. His investing strategy is like no other in this sense.   Matt Badiali earned a Master of Science degree in geology, which he uses to analyze natural resource stocks. He considers the demand for the resource the company produces, the countries that are supplying it, the potential economic issues surrounding that resource, and how the stock is performing in the market.   Matt is regularly featured and contributes to MarketWatchInvestopediaPoliticoFox Business NewsBarron’sThe Wall Street Journal, and Bloomberg.

What is Real Wealth Strategist 

Real Wealth Strategist focuses mainly on natural resource stocks and the enormous potential they can offer. Natural resources have always been compelling to smart investors because they are at the core of everything we have. They sustain society. Some investors see commodity stocks as safer, longer-term investments simply because of unwavering demand.   Over the years, natural resource and commodity stocks have continued to grow, as the world population grows and requires more of these resources. Innovations in necessities and commodities has also allowed the natural resource sector to flourish.  Natural resource investing casts a wide net of possibilities. It includes anything that can be mined, collected in raw form, and then processed further to make a completed product. Think of the lumber industry: We can invest in the companies that are planting tree farms; we can invest in the companies that are involved in cutting trees down. Or we can invest in the companies that make mulch out of trees, the companies that cut trees into various sizes for sale, or the largest purchasers of these finished products.  In Real Wealth Strategist, Matt Badiali investigates thousands of natural resource and commodity companies, regardless of their part in the process. Real Wealth Strategist aims to find the best commodity stocks that are showing growth and stability in the market. Commodity stocks that Real Wealth Strategist typically recommends are major oil purchasers and distributors, pipeline companies, metal mining companies, large metal purchasers, cannabis producers and more.

Final Review of Real Wealth Strategist 

When Matt sticks to what he knows best — geology and analyzing natural resources — his advice is golden. There’s no denying that Matt Badiali is one of the best natural resource investors in the country. If you search his name on YouTube, you’ll find numerous features on prime news channels. He’s regularly interviewed on top investing websites as well.   Matt is a go-to resource when it comes to oil and even topics like the recent U.S. tariffs on China and sanctions on Iran. If you want to get into oil stocks, precious metals, marijuana and other commodity stocks, I highly recommend Real Wealth Strategist  For my personal gains: At the moment, I hold 15 positions Matt recommended via his Real Wealth Strategist subscription. Some of them have already made gains of 30%, 20%, 41%, and 59%. They are pretty much all related to oil in some way – for example, two cannabis stocks Matt recommended are up 78% and 71% as of market close yesterday, so we are keeping an eye on those positions in order to plan our next move. Not all of his picks always play out, but I personally have never seen massive losses from his picks, which is important to note.   It is not often that Matt will release an agricultural stock recommendation (aside from cannabis which many count as agricultural stock) in Real Wealth Strategist, so if you are looking to invest in those sorts of commodity stocks, this newsletter subscription may not be for you.   If you are looking to invest in mining companies, oil, pipeline companies and precious metals, Real Wealth Strategist is packed with extremely valuable information for studying and understanding the natural resource and commodity sector.
