Are they Real? The Freedom Checks in Matt Badialis Video Post?

There had been a video doing rounds on social media with the image of Matt Badiali holding a fat check that he called Freedom. People were a little puzzled because the check looked more like the ones issued by the Treasury of the United States. A Lot of debate has been triggered by Badiali’s act with analysis and counter analysis. However, in the end, as sensationalist as it looked, the real substance of Matt Badiali’s Freedom Checks lies in the details. They are actually true but wait. There are facts you have to understand the checks and requirements to be met.

What the Checks Really Are

The style of presentation in the videos doing rounds smacks of a psychological approach to hoodwink people to go with a given product. However, besides the antics, it emerges that the checks are a form of benefit that the US government extends to companies that generate over 90% of their profits from activities of exploration and transportation of oil and gas within the US. The checks are not a form of social security programs like 401 (k) or IRA or Medicare. It emerges that the benefits of the checks are by far bigger than the government programs mentioned. It should be noted that Freedom checks are not some form of a government program. The checks are a product of Statute 26-F. These checks are a product of the activities of companies that meet the requirements that meet the Master Limited Company Partnerships. There are about 568 companies that are entitled to tax-free activity, and thus privy to the checks that Matt Badiali has decided to christen as Freedom. Statute 26-F was enacted in 1987 by Congress.

How Matt Badiali Knew about the Checks

Mr. Badiali discovered the hidden treasure when he was on duty of service for a prominent investor. He had the opportunity to meet with senior stakeholders in the oil and gas industry. It is then that he accessed the information about the checks. It was inevitable. Given the kind of work, he was doing within the oil and gas industry he had to dine and wine with the big boys of the industry. He came to learn about the MLPs. He dug deeper and extracted the hidden secrets that the big players in the oil and gas industry have known for so long but weren’t publicly sharing. The requirements to stay be admitted into the Master Limited Partnership companies is that you must agree to pay 90% of your profits to the shareholders. These are the Freedom Checks that Matt is excited about. Visit:

Ted Bauman saw this opportunity around a month ago. There was an outfit that was going to have a change of leadership. Ted Bauman saw which way the shareholders were going to be swayed. His analysis paid off well, and he ended up getting a thirteen percent increase in just three weeks. During the same time, the S&P was only up by two and a half percent.

This story motivated Ted Bauman to go on searching for similar opportunities that were available during the past year. He found a lot of them, but he also found that people did not invest in these opportunities very often. He predicts that many such opportunities will be available during the course of the current year and that you should definitely invest in them if you want to succeed. If you do that, there is the possibility of earning returns that are seventy percent more than the returns that would be earned if you invest in the S&P.

So what stock did Ted Bauman purchase? It was the iShares MSCI South Africa ETF (NYSE: EZA). He accurately predicted how the country’s change of leadership would affect the market in that country.
