Matt BadialiMatt Badiali is the editor of the S&A Resource Report, a monthly advisory focused on investments in energy, metals, and other natural resources. Over the years, Matt has recorded an incredible list of triple-digit winners, like Northern Dynasty Minerals (322%), Silver Wheaton (345%), and Jinshan Gold Mines (339%), among many others.

Matt joined Stansberry & Associates in 2005, and takes a “boots on the ground” approach to his research. His work has taken him to Papua New Guinea, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Texas, the Canadian Yukon, Haiti, Turkey, Nevada, Switzerland, and many other locations. He has built a huge rolodex of the most important people in the industry – from private financiers, leading geologists and natural-resource analysts, and billionaire hedge-fund managers.
 
He is also the editor of the S&A Junior Resource Trader, which focuses on “junior” resource stocks. Junior resource stocks are the “bloodhounds” of the industry. These small exploration firms scour the world looking for sizeable energy and metal deposits. It’s an area of the market that regularly produces hundreds, or even thousands of percent gains.
 
Besides these two S&A advisories, Matt is also a guest editor for our exclusivePhase 1 Investor research service. His work with Phase 1 has led to incredible gains as well, including ATAC Resources (598%) and Rainy River Resources (183%).
 
His most famous “call” came in 2010 with Papua New Guinea-based InterOil, one of S&A’s most controversial recommendations. Despite widespread criticism from short-sellers that InterOil was a fraud, including hedge-fund manager Whitney Tilson, Matt maintained his long position. Unlike the short-sellers, Matt had actually visited InterOil’s deposits in person, and saw the geological evidence himself. Less than a year later, Matt was proven right when InterOil finalized a joint venture with Japanese conglomerate Mitsui.
 
Prior to joining S&A, Matt was a geologist for a drilling company, and a consultant to an environmental company.
 
Matt has a B.S. in Earth Sciences from Penn State University, and a Masters in Geology from Florida Atlantic University. He learned investment analysis from senior analysts Porter Stansberry, Steve Sjuggerud, and Dan Ferris.
