Forward View has recently agreed to publish special updates on the sporting goods industry and companies we cover through TalkMarkets, a new investment media website developed by former executives from Seeking Alpha, Bloomberg, Reuters, and Yahoo Finance. TalkMarkets enables users to create a "smart" customized experience that delivers research and news tailored to specific needs and interests. Forward View is dedicated to new ways to deliver quality equity analyses outside of the traditional sell-side business model, so contributing to TalkMarkets made sense.

Please note that our Sporting Goods Monitor equity research service won't be available for free on TalkMarkets or anywhere else. Other than the occasional samples we will share publicity, including on TalkMarkets, the Sporting Goods Monitor will remain a subscription service for institutional investors. TalkMarkets can, however, serve as a fresh platform for Forward View to continually raise awareness of our business while enabling Forward View to connect with the investment community through our coverage of the sporting goods sector. Overall, we're excited about our partnership with TalkMarkets and look forward to years of collaborative success. Many thanks to TalkMarkets CEO Boaz Berkowitz for the invitation to join the contributor pool.

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.
