September News

On the Forward View Awesomeness Scale, which goes from 1–10, we rate September as a 17.51 (or maybe even 17.52!). It has just been an incredible time for our business. Most importantly, we have a new team member! Chelsea Hippler of Texas has come aboard as a copywriter for our website design and marketing projects. She truly has a way with words, and we look forward to sharing examples of her work with you in the future.

On the website development side of Forward View, we completed a trio of projects. The Antioch Baptist Church now has its first website, the Dickenson County Chamber of Commerce's old digital presence was replaced and the Clintwood United Methodist Church's site was overhauled. (The latter redo took just 24 hours!) Each organization that we served in September has a wonderful mission, and we're proud to support them all. In addition to the jobs we completed last month, we also signed agreements with four new website design and marketing clients. We're truly happy to have fresh opportunities for shared success.

Following our equity research partnership with StockViews, we've published a fresh report on the website. You can read the analysis for free on StockViews! (Our average recommendation on StockViews has returned over 10%, with our best trade suggestion generating a 109% profit.) This month, we'll be publishing a research report on a meeting Forward View analyst David Wilson had with the CFO of Westmoreland Coal. In addition, we'll share a field note from our founder's pre-opening tour of a Cabela's store. With all of these unique publications upcoming, it's no wonder that we signed up a new investment analysis client in September. We're happy to welcome him to our research service.

As always, we thank you for reading The Forward View!

Nathan Yates

Nathan Yates has been fascinated by technology and finance since he was young. He was the kid devouring the business section of the newspaper (remember those?) while others read everything else. Nathan believes that the American economy is built from the bottom-up, meaning that small businesses and local nonprofits are the foundation of our nation's success. These organizations are the lifeblood of towns and cities across the U.S. Unfortunately, most consulting firms overlook companies or organizations that don't have eight-figure budgets. Nathan thought Forward View Consulting should be different. And we are. As Lead Consultant, Nathan works with each client to deliver only the best financial and/or website development services. Nathan's years of web design experience and his business degrees ensure that professional expertise is brought to each project. Our network of contacts can offer additional specialized guidance if needed. Before creating Forward View Consulting, Nathan worked for an independent equity research firm as a Research Associate covering the industrial and energy sectors. This work involved preparing quarterly 15-40 page reports on multi-billion dollar corporations along with timely analysis of M&A activity and industry-wide news. He also managed research distribution and the company's online presence. Nathan also spent a summer serving as a local financial adviser's Research Intern. Nathan earned a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, graduating summa cum laude. He then earned a Master's degree in Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, where he was named the Outstanding Student in his particular concentration. Now, Nathan is an adjunct professor teaching economics and finance for his alma mater. In his spare time, Nathan enjoys fishing, reading, time with family and serving as a volunteer webmaster for the Clintwood United Methodist Church.
