Not many of the stock analysts working on Wall Street or running hedge funds or mutual funds took earth science and geology courses in college. They majored in Finance and earned their MBAs before starting out as brokers and traders.
However, Matt Badiali, editor of the newsletter Real Wealth Strategist, is that major exception. In college he planned to become a practicing scientist, a geologist, after he finished his schooling. However, while working toward his doctorate, he made friends with an expert investor who needed his scientific knowledge to evaluate companies in the natural resources sector of the economy. That includes metals such as gold, silver and platinum. It includes oil, natural gas and other forms of energy. It includes many commodities and agricultural products.
Companies that are mining copper or refining oil from shale cannot be accurately evaluated from an office in a lower Manhattan skyscraper. That’s why Badiali has visited such countries as Turkey, Peru, Iraq, Singapore, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Switzerland and Haiti. He needs to see the mining operations and oil rigs for himself. He interviews corporate officers in their headquarters and operations managers in the field. He doesn’t believe what companies say until he checks them out for himself. He takes a boots on the ground attitude toward investing. Learn more at Seeking Alpha about Matt Badiali
Because so few people have his dual expertise in both the science and business evaluation of natural resource investments, Matt Badiali decided to start a newsletter so ordinary people such as his father could benefit from his experiences. Banyan Hill Publishing began putting out his Real Wealth Strategist in 2017. In it, he keeps readers up to date on developments in the metals, energy and natural resource sector. He recommends stocks that he is certain will provide great value in the future. And every week he tells readers how the companies he recommended are performing in the market. He continues to meet with such industry leaders as Ross Beaty and T. Boone Pickens. He interviews company CEOs, other expert natural resources investors and experts in precious metals such as gold and silver.
Recently he expressed the interesting opinion that soon electricity will provide for almost all of humanity’s energy needs. This won’t happen until manufacturers develop extremely high-capacity batteries. However, when they have batteries capable of storing enough power to run entire cities, humanity will phase out gasolene, propane and diesel fuels. Already electronic cars are taking over the automobile industry. And his mining expertise will still be needed, because those cars will require metals and minerals.
