My name is Matt Badiali. I was a geologist teaching at the University of North Carolina when I got a call from a famous financial expert … a man who has made over a billion dollars selling privileged research to some of the world’s top investors.
This financial expert asked if I could help him on a special project. He wanted to invest in the energy, mining and natural resource sector; however … he knew that if he wanted to get exceptional returns, he needed a geologist on his team.
To do that, I would go around the world and visit specific companies to make sure that what they said on paper was actually true on site. I would assess core samples from gold mines, analyze on-site field maps and examine oil wells as they operated.
The idea of traveling the world was intriguing. So, when he offered to increase my paycheck five-fold and teach me everything he knew about investing…I signed on and never looked back.
That was more than a decade ago.
I’ve been traveling ever since. From places like Singapore… to the Yukon … to Iraq … to Hong Kong … to Vancouver … to Papua New Guinea … and the Mexican desert.
I’m always meeting with mining and oil company CEOs, resource investors, and precious metals experts to stay in the know on the latest technologies, discoveries and trends.
For example, I’ve met with legendary oilman T. Boone Pickens, spoken with Ross Beaty, chairman of Pan American Silver, and I am proud to call Rick Rule, CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings, a personal friend and mentor.
I’ve presented my findings at major geologic conferences in addition to major companies like Anadarko and Exxon Mobil.
I’ve worked on drill rigs and explored abandoned mines … all in order to make profitable investments in natural resources.
I’ve even owned oil wells myself.
One of my top speculative investments was in the heart of the 2008 stock market crash … on December 5, 2008.
I bought a $0.06 mining stock by the name of Kaminak Gold Corp.
My friends and family thought I was crazy.
However, while the stock market dropped by 50%, my position shot up. I sold Kaminak Gold on August 26, 2010, for $2.64.
A gain of 4,400%.
Every $100 I invested turned into $4,400.
I don’t feel comfortable telling exactly how much money I made, however … let’s just say I live in my dream house a few steps from the beach.
And as for the man who hired me to do this research, it worked out well for him too. I’ve seen an enormous amount of cash flood through the doors of his firm from my recommendations.
In fact, I beat all of my co-workers … including former hedge fund managers, mutual fund managers and Goldman Sachs traders … with 16 triple-digit winners and a collective gain of 3,523%.
I was even named the company’s No. 1 stock picker last year.
Those following my insights made out very well. Just listen to what they’ve said…
- “I’m up 84%. Thanks and keep up the great suggestions.” — Doug Patelli, Albany, New York
- “Matt, I have used your research a lot. I made 167% on Northern Dynasty and another 161% on Parker Drilling.” — Karl Blanchard, Austin, Texas
- And Ralph Stevens of Junction City, Colorado, told me, “I like the idea of sitting back and collecting the revenue streams … I’m up over 335% so far!”
Frankly, I’m not sure how much money these folks made based on my research … tens of millions, perhaps hundreds of millions?
Now, I don’t share all this to brag … I just want you to know that when it comes to identifying and seizing huge opportunities, I know how to find them.
