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), Nike (NKE), Newell Brands (NWL), Sportsman's Warehouse (SPWH), Sturm Ruger (RGR), Under Armour (UA/UAA), V.F. Corporation (VFC), Vista Outdoor (VSTO) and West Marine (WMAR).
I am a wedding planner living in the Vancouver B.C. area who became environmentally aware as a result of the oil spill in the Gulf Region. I believe the world must end its dependency on oil and I look for investments that are home runs in solar, clean tech, wind energy and technology.
I am a reformed MD, now with a finance MBA, and studying valuation independently by developing some conservative DCF models using FCF per share. You can make any investment work if you set a low enough discount rate.... that's one of the discouraging things about doing anything other than passive index investing. Forecasting isn't too accurate, those darn standard deviations are too wide. Margins of safety and alpha are rare and hard to separate from the noise.
