Understanding the idea behind Matt Badiali’s Freedom Checks
There is a viral commercial that is going around that explains how people are getting their share of a 34.6 billion dollars’ worth of payout with something known as a freedom check. At first, there were speculations that these freedom checks were part of a government program but then people realized that they have to make an initial investment before actually getting a part of the huge sum that is being promised. With this revelation, many were quick to call it a scam while others have been bold enough and gone as far as to call it illegal money laundering. The fact that some of the people endorsing this project are referring to it like winning the lottery does not make the situation better in any way. However, the reason for all the fuss is because people do not understand what these checks actually mean.
So what are checks and how do people make money from them?
Freedom Check is a concept that was introduced to many by Matt Badiali, a senior editor and an investment expert at Bayan Hill Publishing. The name freedom checks may be from Matt but the whole thing is based on an investment strategy that was started by the government. The whole idea behind the freedom checks is that investors in a Masters Limited Partnership get paid a monthly or quarterly return on the money on an investment strategy that they have invested in certain companies that have qualified as Masters Limited Partnerships. Basically what happens is that when you make an investment in a Masters Limited Partnership, you are actually buying a unit of the company and in return, you get to be paid a certain amount on a monthly or quarterly basis depending on how the company performs.
Companies that are part of the Masters Limited Partnerships are those in the gas and energy industry. These are basically publicly traded companies whose investors enjoy all the benefits that other limited partnerships enjoy with the added benefit that they do not get to pay taxes. These companies have to be generating more than 90 percent of their revenue in the natural resource area in order to be called MLPs. The freedom checks are a means that these companies are using to give investors the investment profits and not the government.
