Matt Badali’s Philosophy for Helping Small Investors is “Over deliver. Give more value than people expect.”

A geologist by training Matt Badali is a Senior Editor at Banyan Hill Publishing. In that capacity, he composes the newsletter “Real Wealth Strategist”. His writings offer counsel for those looking to make natural-resource based investments. Some of his readers have seen the value of their investment portfolios increase two and three fold. Matt Badali’s involvement in finance came about purely by happenstance.

He was teaching Geology at Duke University when a friend working in finance tapped him for his understanding of science and geology. The friend’s objective was to create opportunities for small investors. Recalling his father’s difficulty in supplementing the family income through investing Matt Badali welcomed the opportunity to help investors like his dad.

Never basing his investment advice solely on what he hears or reads Matt prefers to check out a new investment opportunity personally. Whether it was to visit the headquarters of a company, inspect a mine or oil field he has visited the Yukon, South America, Asia, and Europe.

Holding a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Earth Science from Penn-State one of Matt’s early jobs was as an Environmental Geologist in Miami. He decided that working in muck and mire while being exposed to potentially toxic water and soil was not what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. This realization prompted his enrollment at Florida Atlantic University. He earned a Master of Science in Geology from that school.

As Matt Badiali sees it the trend towards electrification provides the next big investment opportunity. The materials, software, and components that go into building electric cars are the next millionaire making investments.

Offering a bit of prognostication, Matt predicted that one day the technology that makes a wholly battery operated city possible will exist. He added that when such a battery is developed it will not be lithium based.

Matt Badali’s career advice to others is to read. As he put it, “You simply can’t read enough”. Using the example of the oil industry, he recommended finding a field of interest and interning with a company in that field. Besides laying a foundation for a career you’ll make contacts and compile a more impressive résumé.

A devoted father Matt gets up early enough to have breakfast with his daughter before she leaves for school. He says that the best $100.00 he ever spent was for the benefit of his daughter’s softball team. Read:
