Some people may consider oil or other commodities to be very risky investments, and it’s true that their markets are always volatile as the period of oil price decline proved from 2014 through 2016. But you also can find some tremendous wealth in these commodities if you consider buying into a little-known vehicle known as freedom checks. They aren’t exactly the kind of regular checks most people receive because they’re not government-issued and they actually are tax exempt. But what exactly are they then and how can you get them? One of Banyan Hill’s main editors Matt Badiali has the answers to those questions. Read this article at Money Morning.
Basically, freedom checks look like regular stocks when you first take a look at them, but they’re all from natural resource companies mostly in oil, natural gas and mining. But what’s different from these investments are that the gains on them are return of capital and not a profit based on income, so the US tax laws exempt holders from taxes. The only time you pay taxes on them is if you decide to sell them, but you’re only taxed at the lower capital gains rate if you do that. That’s because these freedom checks are governed by the laws of Master Limited Partnerships.
As Matt Badiali mentions in his articles, MLPs have requirements to payout at least 90% of their income to investors which is why they can generate even higher payments than regular stocks. His videos state that due to a push to end dependence on foreign oil, expand fracking and invest even more into natural resource production, these MLP companies are likely to pay freedom check holders about $34.6 billion over the next year, and some could see their investment gain as much as 39,832%. Badiali says that it’s just a matter of finding the companies, and then buying their freedom check stocks is practically as simple as buying regular stock. He discusses more about this in his “Real Wealth Strategist” newsletter.
Matt Badiali worked in the natural resources industry for many years before becoming an independent investor and contributor to Banyan Hill. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Earth Sciences from Penn State University and a Masters in Geology from Florida Atlantic University. He started out as a field worker at an oil drilling company and a consultant for a private environmental studies group. His work took him all over the world and brought him across magnates like T. Boone Pickens. What’s made his newsletters great is that most of his findings are discoveries he’s made personally. Visit stockgumshoe.com to know more.
