His expertise in natural resources has seen him analyze stock markets and give reliable predictions that investors can take advantage of.
Recently, Matt Badiali had predicted promising returns on the platinum resource. The mineral seems to have been forgotten as a result of poor performance in several years. Its supply has been high compared to its level of demand. The demand for platinum further went down with the decrease of diesel as a result of the Volkswagen scandal which admitted to have faked the efficiency of diesel on vehicles.
The platinum returns are expected to rise as a result of a strong British economy that prefers using diesel cars which are cheaper as compared to petrol cars which are quite expensive to fuel. Also most platinum mines are running out of the mineral and they have been mined deep. This translates to demand exceeding supply in the horizon. According to Matt Badiali, the platinum share is going to trade at high prices in 2018 and investors should look forward to investing in the mineral.

Ted Bauman wrote an article recently enlisting over a dozen ways one can save some money before the new tax laws take effect. The first and most obvious move is to donate to charity both in cash and in company stocks preferably the stocks that have highly appreciated over the year as they attract some of the largest charitable deductions.
Paying all of next year’s property taxes, paying the interest on all of your mortgages that is likely to accrue next year, paying all of your outstanding loans you took as a student, and even paying for the anticipated medical expenses that you are likely to incur in 2018 for instance scheduled medical procedures before the end of the year can help you reduce your 2017 federal income tax bill hence benefiting from itemized tax deductions for the last time.
If you are planning to buy a car and you happen to be living in one of those states that are known for charging sales tax on automobile purchases beforehand, you can consider doing this before December 31st of 2017 if possible so that you can add the tax charged as one of your 2017 itemized deductions.
Another move you can consider pulling as an individual depending on your income level is to convert into a limited liability company and this move alone is likely to increase your tax savings up to two times. You can do this by resigning your job now and return the following as a paid consultant. As a consultant or if you are on retainer, you can try to ask some of your clients to pay some of their 2018 invoices beforehand in a deliberate effort of increasing this years’ earnings.
