Having retired from high-level positions on Wall Street, including being a hedge fund manager, Paul Mampilly now spends his days helping regular Americans make lots of money by investing in stocks he recommends in Profits Unlimited. He recently sat down for an interview with Eric Dye of Enterprise radio. He shared how investing has really changed over the past 25 years and what first time investors often do wrong. He also touched on initial public offering that are worth following and some of the entrepreneurs he finds to be pretty admirable.
Paul Mampilly started out the interview by noting that he has a proven track record when it comes to investing. He has been successfully helping them for the past seven years. He had worked as an analyst on Wall Street, ran a trading desk, and made the investment decisions for a hedge fund manager. He puts in a lot of work each day figuring out what companies are poised for enormous growth.
He says he can spend 12 to 14 hours each day reading materials in order to make informed investment decisions because that’s what it takes to get things right. He also tracks the stocks that his subscribers have indicated interest in and the ones that are on his watch list.
Computers and the internet have changed quite a bit about investing and Wall Street, just like it has affected just about every other industry. Trades that used to be done by humans are now being done by artificial intelligence. These advanced AIs track stock prices and use the same information as other investors use. When Paul Mampilly started out it was only the largest investment firms that used computers but now even the smallest investors do so.
Paul Mampilly says that the initial public offering he has been most closely following is that of Spotify. He finds it interesting because they did a “public listing” which means they didn’t raise money when their stock was listed on the market. What this meant was that their early investors wanted to sell their stock instead of the company deciding to raise capital. If more companies do this than Wall Street is going to lose a lot of power he says.

Geologist and financial advisor Matt Badiali is the man who introduced Freedom Checks to average investors. As a geologist, he talked with many CEOs of large companies and learned about the business aspect of the natural resource sector. He learned that “Master Limited Partnerships” were the companies that were able to pay Freedom Checks to their shareholders. Most MLPs are involved in operations in domestic natural resources, primarily oil and gas. These companies were established in a way that the United States could eventually achieve energy independence.
Many individuals believed that Freedom Checks were a brand-new investing strategy when they first viewed the sensational ad created by Matt Badiali explaining the investment. Investing n MLPs has been used by skilled investors who understand the tax code. In 1987 Congress wanted to create more jobs, increase economic growth and to lower dependence from foreign oil. They passed legislation which enables MLPs to function without paying income taxes. In return for this special treatment, these companies had to produce resources domestically and pay their shareholders substantial dividends. MLPs pass along some of their tax privileges to their shareholders. Investors of MLPs are not required to pay any dividends on the Freedom Checks they receive, which makes them some of the most lucrative investments out there. Once an investor chooses the appropriate Master Limited Partnership to invest in they will start to receive distributions on a quarterly or a monthly basis.
Matt Badiali is pushing Freedom Checks for more than just high dividends. He also feels that the share prices of some MLPs will shoot up from current levels. He is anticipating that many oil companies in the US are going to have to focus more on domestic oil production because of all the turmoil that takes place in the Middle East. He feels that oil prices are going to rise and increase the profitability in MLPs. When this happens, they will pay even higher dividends to their shareholders and the share prices will reflect that the company profits have gone up tremendously. There are currently over five hundred companies that trade on the major US stock exchanges that are MLPs.
GreenSky Credit is becoming more widely known by the day for its towering success in theretail lending business. The name comes from the company’s mission to help homeowners make environmentally friendly renovations to their homes. Yet, the company has been able to branch out into many different sectors. Today, GreenSky Credit has more than 17,000 retailers located across the country that are pitching its loans to millions of customers each year. And this has sent the value of the company soaring to an estimated $5 billion, making it one of the most important players in the fintech space.
Creating something from nothing
Although GreenSky isn’t revolutionizing any industry, the company has created a transformative product. GreenSky Credit’s lending platformuses highly innovative and effective proprietary technology to connect customers who need instant loans at the point of sale to some of the biggest and most trusted lenders in the country.
Through doing this, the firm is able to grease the wheels of each industry in which it operates, creating billions of dollars in additional business that simply never would have materialized without the help of the company.
This can be most readily seen in the home improvement industry where the company has been able to create as much as $4 billion in additional sales each year for the nation’s home improvement retailers and on-site contractors. When customers experience sticker shock for the estimate on a home renovation or they simply don’t have enough money to complete their desired projects, the company steps in with trulyinstantly approved loansof up to six-figure amounts.
These loans often have among the most favorable terms possible, with most requiring no payments or interest for the first year of the loan. This is made possible because the average GreenSky borrower has a FICO score of 760, making the vast majority of the company’s customers prime borrowers. And these prime borrowers are extremely attractive customers for the top lenders in the nation. Because of this, the company has been able to easily forge partnerships with the country’s most trusted banks. At the end of the day, every party to GreenSky transactions walks away a winner.
