May News

May was an exciting month for Forward View with three new stocks added to our coverage list: Sportsman's Warehouse, Hibbett Sports and MarineMax. The initiation reports are available exclusively through StockViews. (Please contact us if you're interested in a StockViews research service trial.) In June, our coverage list will be expanding again with the addition of Callaway Golf. This special coverage will be provided by new Forward View research analyst Michael Williams. He's a golf industry expert with experience in auditing, planning and business analysis. Forward View will be pleased to share Michael's financial modeling, forecasts and field research with our institutional clientele.

Michael earned a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, where he graduated with multiple honors and is now a Master's in Finance candidate. He has also completed additional studies in Econophysics and speaks conversational German. Michael is a great addition to the research team!

Forward View was also in the news once again in May. Our mutual fund research was cited by U.S. News & World Report in this article. The Springfield News-Leaderalso discussed our analysis of the potential for a Bass Pro and Cabela's combination in this article.

On the design and consulting side of Forward View, we continue to develop the Ralph Stanley Museum website, and we've also been busy with website updates and marketing projects. We're especially happy that multiple clients decided to deepen relationships with us and request additional services. Each opportunity is most appreciated!

Have a great June! 

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.
