Forward View Consulting, located in Virginia, is not your typical investment research provider. We're never interested in hot stocks or Wall Street's darlings of the moment. Every research note and report we publish will be based on a long-term perspective and fundamental research methodologies. That's the Forward View difference. Forward View's proprietary equity valuation model underpins our stock price targets and utilizes years of historical financial statement data to produce detailed forecasts. We have formal ratings, estimates and targets on: Big 5 Sporting Goods (BGFV), Cabela's (CAB), Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), Callaway Golf (ELY), Hibbett Sports (HIBB), MarineMax (HZO), Sportsman's Warehouse (SPWH) and West Marine (WMAR). Forward View is a proud StockViews Affiliate Partner.
Software Developer/Manager for 10 years and IT Investment/Risk Consultant for 25 years.
Successful private investor for 30+ years. Investment approach is value, hedging, risk management, and diversification across classes, countries, and trimeframes.
Self-employed Chemical Engineer, P.E.; B.S. Chemical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley; MBA in managerial economics and finance, Western Washington University. Current investing style is investing, as well as swing trading with technical low entry points, into a pool of high risk, high beta stocks thus statistically smoothing the risk. Mostly in mobile, tech, and IP. This investing style is analogous to leaping off a cliff in my hang glider and to then go mountain thermal hunting, coring the thermal to rise above the mountain as a soaring eagle does, and finally banking out before reaching its apex and it sends you 'over the falls'. Have gone over the falls a few times (in both stocks and hang glider)....scary endorphin rendering exhilaration!!
I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?
HISTORY; 20 yrs. prototype machinist. 12 yrs. construction labor, management, owner.
Current; Investments & gardening (yes, profitable..gardening that is ;)
Disheartened by the opportunities in the UK and for the love of the outdoors I left Europe in the summer of 2000.In 2006, I moved down to Central America and now live in Nicaragua. Right now I am running my own business, a small Alternative Energy outfit and trying to enjoy watersports when I can. I like to think of myself as having a more value, fundamental approach to investing which is long term in nature though I actively manage my portfolio and use some more aggressive short term strategies. I believe we are in the midst of a once in a lifetime crisis, the end of the "debt supercycle" as John Mauldin puts it, but that we will get through it and the dislocations and upheaval that will ensue will lead to a whole new age of prosperity and opportunity to be found mostly in "emerging" and newly empowered economies away from Europe.
