As for where to currently invest when it comes to making money from natural resources, Matt Badiali says that owning the stock of gold miners is going to make a lot of people a lot of money over the next few years. He had started writing about gold miners in December of 2017 and since that time the stock of the companies he was recommending have gone up by 8%, in contrast to the S&P 500 which has lost value since that time. Because the overall markets have been so volatile since February many investors have pulled their money out of the S&P 500 and nare now considering into what asset the money should go.
One of the investments Matt Badiali likes at this time is GDX which invests in just goldmining firms. This is an ETF which investors can put their money and not have to worry about the S&P 500 going up and down by 2% or more a day. Some companies he recommends buying are Sandstorm, Humana, and Gold Corporation. He has written that these can be used as a long-term investment, not just during times of volatility, as gold does not exist in a vacuum and has good long-term potential as a valuable asset.
