What is The S&A Resource Report?

The S&A Resource Report, written by expert geologist Matt Badiali, is a monthly investment advisory that focuses on the best natural resource investments today.

Matt joined Stansberry & Associates in 2005 and has gone to great lengths to find the best energy and commodity-related investment ideas for his subscribers. His work has taken him to Papua New Guinea, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Texas, the Canadian Yukon, Haiti, Turkey, Nevada, Switzerland, and Kurdistan.

Every month, Matt uses this "boots on the ground" expertise and industry connections to recommend the most promising small oil and mineral explorers, drilling service providers, power companies, and the best gold and metals companies in the world.

Matt's approach has paid off big... In recent years, readers that took advantage of his research have seen gains of 335% in Silver Wheaton... 332% in Northern Dynasty Minerals... 269% on Silvercorp Metals... and 184% in ConocoPhillips, just to name a few.

That's probably why so many mining and energy industry veterans read the S&A Resource Report. As Gerald Wilson, director of an NYSE-listed exploration and production company told us, "Your letter, in many instances, has confirmed good ideas under consideration and at other times introduced new ideas, which have proven to be very profitable! I look forward to your report each month and find it extremely valuable."

As government money printing continues around the world, the energy and metals investment ideas Matt recommends in the S&A Resource Report, published on the first Wednesday each month, are some of the best places to make a lot of money in the next several years.

How The S&A Resource Report Works:

Every weekday you will receive The S&A Digest, a daily email from our firm's founder, Porter Stansberry, and the rest of the S&A team. This daily report details the most important financial events of the day... and what our team of more than a dozen analysts are currently investigating. This is for paid subscribers only, and comes free with your subscription. As one reader recently wrote, 'The S&A Digest is the only financial publication I read every day.'

The S&A Digest is also where we answer subscriber questions and feedback. The S&A analysts read every letter you send in, and personally reply to as many as possible in The Digest every day.

On the first Thursday of every month you will receive The S&A Resource Report.

Every month, we'll keep you up to date on exactly what's going on not only in the gold markets, but in the oil, energy, and other precious metals markets as well.

We've recently reported on incredible opportunities to profit from the shale boom in Texas' Eagle Ford, for example. And I recently returned from Kurdistan, a relatively safe and stable province in northern Iraq, where international companies are about to make an absolute fortune extracting oil.

Matt offers an unconditional 100%-money-back guarantee to new members, who can try it out for four months, without risking a penny.
