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: Acushnet (GOLF), American Outdoor Brands (AOBC), Big 5 Sporting Goods (BGFV), Brunswick (BC), Cabela's (CAB), Columbia Sportswear (COLM), Camping World (CWH), Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), Callaway Golf (ELY), Hibbett Sports (HIBB), Johnson Outdoors (JOUT), MarineMax (HZO), Newell Brands (NWL), Sportsman's Warehouse (SPWH), Sturm Ruger (RGR), Vista Outdoor (VSTO) and West Marine (WMAR).
Because I'm an accountant, I enjoy analyzing company financials. I'm also agnostic to prices going up or down. Either is fine, so long as I'm the correct side. :)
