Matt Badiali, well-respected geologist and investor of natural resources, has found success in what is now called “freedom checks”. With skepticism from the industry because of the extremely high returns and an overwhelming surplus of “get rich quick“ schemes, it has been difficult to translate the value of freedom checks in a way that can be taken advantage of. Badiali has decided to educate people on how they could become participants in obtaining passive income through the investment of natural resources through online tutorials and newsletters. His online resources have helped a lot of investors educate themselves in this booming market and prepare them with the tools they need to succeed.
The new interest of the oil and gas industry comes from the massive increase in oil and gas production in the United States and a decrease in imported oil from Middle Eastern companies. The companies in the United Sates are expecting massive profits in the upcoming years which will ultimately enable a payout of an estimated $34.6 billion in freedom checks over the next 12 months.
The gains of this investment are so large that they can seem too good to be true. Investors have experienced returns of up to 335% on their investments with freedom checks and beyond. The most fascinating part is that the payout is often simpler than that of any other stock. The companies that issue out the payments are called Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). In order for a company to maintain the qualification of an MLP, they are required to pay our at least 90% of it’s income to investors. These payments are the freedom checks. Because the payments are considered a return on capital and not income, investors do not have to pay income taxes on them and any profit from the sale of these investments are taxed at a lower capital gains rate instead of the higher personal income rate.
Considering these benefits of these investments, it’s easy to see why investors would be skeptical. Knowing this, Matt has come up with online guides to educate investors and walk them through the process.
