Master Limited Partnerships are a specific kind of business venture that certain companies use. They represent a publicly traded but limited partnership that grants tax benefits. Such benefits are usually available to actual partnerships, but the MLPs allow business that are not true partnerships to act like they are. They just have to follow the same guidelines that partnerships do. They must liquidate about 90% of their revenue and pay their stakeholders. These stakes can be quite cheap, so reported to be even as low as $10 dollars. They grant a percentage of that 90% payout to whomever holds the stake. Over 500 natural resource companies take advantage of MLPs, and all one need to do to grab part of the huge payout such companies provide is purchase a stake. This is a more technical description of investment Matt Badiali if offering, only he calls them freedom checks not MLPs.
Freedom Checks is a catchy title Badiali cooked up for MLP investments. A master investor in his own right and professional geologist, Badiali is a foremost expert in the natural resource market. His job is to find investment opportunities and then pass the knowledge on to others. Naturally, Badiali knows about things like MLPs, but he also knows the ebb and flow of the resource market. He is adamant about freedom checks because the market is shifting. Oil and natural gas production are switching primarily to U.S. companies. This means a whole lot of money is heading to U.S. based natural resources. As many of these companies deal in MLPs, that influx will hit them as well. So, the 90% payout is going to get bigger.
Badiali has promoted freedom checks through television and radio advertisements. Although the investment sounds a bit on the scammy side it has the backing of a legit investment expert and is itself a legitimate investment in real company. This does not mean it is without risk. Badiali makes projections. Projections do not always come true. This does not affect a monthly or quarterly payout, just the proposed amount. Also, the percentage an investor receives is akin to their investment. You get out what you put in.
