While many people claim to be investment gurus, there are really only a handful of people in the natural resource sector who are worth their salt. Matt Badiali is one of these people, and he has been working in the field for close to two decades. Of late, he has been letting the readers of his newsletter, the Real Wealth Strategist, know that there is a real investment opportunity staring at them right in the face. That opportunity has to do with gold, and more specifically, gold mining companies.
Matt Badiali noted in a recent article that the price of gold hit one of its lowest lows in many years in 2015. Many investors were upset about this, and this furthered gold’s reputation as being a risky investment. Badiali has responded by commenting that gold always has a low price and that investors can get this price regardless of where there gold came from. He suggests that investors can diversify their portfolio by holding gold or gold mining company stock. One benefit of this is that gold doesn’t really follow the overall ebb and flow of the stock market.
People listen to Matt Badiali because he is a trained scientist who received a bachelor’s degree in earth sciences from Penn State University. He also studied at Florida Atlantic University and ended up receiving his Master of Science degree in geology there. During his time at the University of North Carolina, while he was working towards his Ph.D., he made the decision to listen to a friend’s advice and began his work in the financial world. He has traveled all over the world since in search of solid natural resource investments and has found many of these.
Matt Badiali has commented that investors do not need to invest huge amounts of money to make a p
rofit. Even $1,000, according to Badiali, can be enough to earn some solid profits with a gold mining investment. He believes that gold mining stocks are a buy and hold kind of investment that will increase in value for years to come. Matt Badiali continues to write more articles about this topic and has published many of these on Medium.
