February News

February was a frigid, snowy month for us in Virginia, but business continued to heat up! We delivered another website birth certificate to a satisfied client, and we're already building a new client's site. Additional digital projects are being added to our calendar, too. We look forward to presenting a few marquee websites in April and May. It's now our pleasure to be working with a talented graphic designer and a fantastic copywriter/digital marketing expert. We enjoy offering new services to our clientele. Contact us today to inquire about these offerings!

On the finance side of the business, Forward View has now initiated formal coverage on Joy Global (JOY), a global manufacturer of mining equipment, with a Hold rating and a $42 price target. We also launched coverage of Cabela's (CAB), a major outdoor gear retailer. We rate the shares as a Speculative Buy with a $60 price target on the shares. In March, we anticipate completing our remaining initiation reports and presenting a few intriguing investment opportunities to our institutional investor audience. Please contact us to begin receiving Forward View equity research. A couple of international business opportunities have recently presented themselves, and we're pursuing them with vigor. Despite claims to the contrary, there is still a healthy international market for high-quality financial research and analytical services.

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.
