March News

Forward View launched the Town of Clinchco's first website in March: We thoroughly enjoyed working with the town and have appreciated the community's positive response to the project. We love supporting local government clients!

On the equity research side of the business, Forward View’s forecast for the February U.S. jobs report was ranked #1 in accuracy by Estimize. Our prediction: 235K new jobs. Actual: 235K new jobs. Our targeted unemployment rate (4.7%) was also 100% correct. (Forward View's CWH and HIBB corporate earnings estimates were ranked #2 this month, too.) In 2017, we’ve dedicated ourselves to developing U.S. economic forecasts that match the success of our equity research predictions. It’s important for us to understand the U.S. economy for top-down research on the companies we cover. Forward View is consistently committed to delivering additional insights to clients, and Sporting Goods Monitor subscribers can contact us to discuss our economics analyses.

Note: This newsletter will now be focused exclusively on news and articles related to our small business, nonprofit, and local government expertise.

Have a blessed Easter!

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.
