February News

February was an exciting month for Forward View. First of all, we're happy to announce that Fred Campbell has joined us as a research analyst. Fred is a wonderful asset to our business, and we're excited to have him aboard. Now that we have a larger team, we can begin offering our newest product, the Sporting Goods Monitor! This research service will provide complete coverage of the sporting goods value chain and every key company in the industry. This is our unique niche, and all of the stocks covered in the Sporting Goods Monitor will be analyzed using the Forward View valuation model. Even if you don't especially care about the sporting goods sector, you'll benefit from our accurate forecasts on almost twenty newly-covered stocks. The Sporting Goods Monitor will be available only to institutional investors, and we'll cap the number of subscribers at fifty in order to create an exclusive group of clients.

On the consulting side of Forward View, we're currently finishing two major projects and have also begun to upgrade a new client's website. In February, we also put the SamShines site online. It's a pleasure to reveal that design to the public. Four of our team members contributed to the SamShines project!

Finally, Forward View enjoyed significant media coverage in January and February. The co-founder of Thinknum (a Forward View business partner) referenced our research on Cabela's in this Bloomberg Radio interview. Benzinga also discussed our Cabela's earnings analysis in this article, as did Paige Yowell of the Omaha World-Herald in this report and this update. Our research on Joy Global and Westmoreland Coal was also cited online.

We wish you a successful March ahead!

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.
