When oil saw a fallout in global demand and a surplus that brought gas prices to their lowest point they had been in years in 2015, many experts started believing it was time to stop investing in oil stocks. But it turns out oil, natural gas, and other natural resources may be the right thing to invest in right now after all due to a new investment called freedom checks. Yes, they are an investment and not simply one of those false promise scams that you might run into in online spam ads or in junk mail. It’s the financial publication company Banyan Hill who found freedom checks and has been explaining them to readers, especially editor Matt Badiali who is an expert in natural resource investments.
So what are the basics you should know about freedom checks? They are investments made in master limited partnership companies, which are companies that have certain regulations they follow including how much they have to pay out to investors. They can be bought in the same way you would buy stocks such as Google or Facebook, but there are only about 568 of these natural resource MLP companies out there. If you are able to find a freedom check investment, you could see your portfolio grow over 1,000℅, and Badiali who has tracked them over the years has said some have made gains as high as 39,832%.
One of the best things about freedom checks is they are not an investment that’s a return on income; they’re a return on capital. For that reason, any gains you make on them are not taxed at all like regular stocks or private equity. The only time you would pay taxes on them are when you decide to sell them, and in such a case you would only pay the lower capital gains tax rate. They got their name because like stock dividends, you can choose to receive checks in the mail.
