Matt Badilai Pushes Oil Investments with Undervalued XOP

Matt Badiali has been talking up oil investments in recent articles of his Banyan Hill Newsletter. According to Badiali prices of oil internationally are going to continue to increase in 2019. Investors should care because XOP ETF is very undervalued. So much so that if the price surges stop XOP will still increase. If investors play their cards right than they could stand to make a sizable return.

Matt Badiali has been offering investment advice for years. A professional geologist with years of experience working for top-level oil companies, Badiali uses his knowledge to provide actionable projections for mid-level investors. Loyal readers of his newsletters, Real Wealth Strategist and Front Line Profits, are well aware that Badiali loves using ETFs to cheaply invest in petroleum as it reduces overall risk. As it is not a direct investment it can yield more and take away less. Read full interview of Matt at

The XOP Matt Badiali has been talking about is a stock market ticker. It represents SPDR S&P Oil and Gas Exploration and Production’s exchange-traded fund (ETF). According to Badiali the XOP is undervalued because it has not increased very much despite oil prices surging. Eventually, the fact that it is undervalued will be noticed and the XOP will be corrected. So an investor who buys into the XOP now will see their investment increase when the corrections are made.

Matt Badiali also believes that oil prices are going to skyrocket in 2019. This projection is the key push behind his Freedom Checks investment. Since 2017 Badiali has been speculation that oil prices will surge and that a lot will be experienced stateside. The cause is both geopolitical and macroeconomic factors. Any investor who buys in early can see their stock values skyrocket.

Badiali is also making the same claim about cannabis. In another series of his newsletter Real Wealth Strategist Badiali has been picturing what full legalization fo medical marijuana in the U.S. could do to current markets. As with oil, he is suggesting investors buy in early to enjoy success later on. No matter if it is oil or cannabis Badiali certainly sees a big year coming.

Speaking to David McDonald, he confirms it wasn’t an easy transition and they have made steady progress over the past 20 years.

David McDonald maintains that was the major hurdle they faced at the time. Another one was coping with government rules and regulations.

According to David McDonald, this takes time and patience to find amicable resolves to issues. They also tried manufacturing in china, but the regulations and rules they faced was also one to work with. Coping with the politics and other regional issues can come into play, but finding a legal way around is what makes a successful company.

Steve Ritchie Approaches to Changeovers in the Food Industry

Steve Ritchie — one of the youngest CEOs in the food market — is one of the most versatile executives in the food industry. He is also one of the longest-serving employees of Papa John’s, and during this period, he has learned a lot about the food company and his abilities as a leader. In the last 24 months, Ritchie has defiled some of the trends in the food market. For example, and he is the first ever CEO to reach a two-digit mark (in terms of growth) in the competitive food market. The following are some of the reasons why Steve Ritchie is a brilliant executive.

First, when he came to the company, he knew that the company needed to re-evaluate its efficiency in the market. As one of the people that have been in the food market for decades, he knew the importance of an effective marketing strategy. In a press release — shortly after his appointment — Steve Ritchie assured the advisory board members that he was going to make the marketing team better and more efficient. One of his first tasks was to create a robust team by bringing new talents to supplement the team members that were already in the department. Brandon Rhoten — who came in as the head of the marketing team — has assisted Papa John’s in reaching more markets.

Second, he knew that the company needed a better online presence and a team that could handle customer complaints. Mike Nettles — one of the most talented digital strategists — was his choice for this important department. Steve Ritchie is now confident that the department will assist him and the management team to give customers better services and more importantly, increase online and offline presence. In addition to adding talents in this critical department, Ritchie has reinvested part of the company’s income to training employees.
