On October 10th, Forward View turned two years old. We thank our clients for their continued faith in this firm. Forward View truly has the best clientele on Earth. Our founder is also beyond grateful for the incredible Forward View team members who have believed in him and remain passionate about our mission. A Christian business guided by this verse can indeed make the world just a little bit brighter:
Now for the news!
Fact: 90.2% of U.S. active equity managers underperformed their respective benchmarks for the 12 months ending 6/30/16, according to S&P Global (as cited in Grant's Interest Rate Observer). Our Sporting Goods Monitor service is designed to uncover opportunities in the sector before the typical Wall Street analyst sees them. We can generate value for your firm because there's nobody else like Forward View, and our recommendations won't simply follow the herd. Because we know the sporting goods industry so deeply, multiple media outlets asked for analysis of the Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's merger that was announced on October 3rd. Click here for a sample of our commentary. In October, we also initiated formal coverage of Vista Outdoor (VSTO) and earned applause for the most accurate Columbia Sportswear 3Q earnings estimate. We'll be initiating formal coverage of Columbia Sportswear soon.
On the consulting side of the business, we enabled the Ridgeview DeliMart and Wolfpack Den to begin selling custom apparel online and to allow their customers to use Apple Pay. Forward View upgraded the DeliMart's food menu ordering system, too. We'll spend November helping our small business clients to prepare for Small Business Saturday and for the upcoming holiday shopping season. Our team invites you to contact us today for digital marketing guidance you can implement before Black Friday!
Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
