  1. I would love it if the Total Asset line would print in the graph on my SSG. I find the visual is really helpful in comparing lots of data.

    Print Total Assets
    I would love it if I could print the Total Assets line for bank studies. Copying the data to notes makes it harder to compare the data.

      • Quarterly Data

        Limit the Quarterly Data X-axis scale to 50% so the plots will not be compressed, making judgements near 10% data difficult.

        • Add a sorting indicator on the PDF copy of the PERT report

          The PDF copy of the PERT report does not indicate what column the report is sorted on, nor the sorting order. Could something be added to a header or footer that shows what column the report is sorted on, and in what order?

          • Date stamp for SSG study date/update.

            Add a date stamp to portfolio display that shows when I last updated an SSG study, i.e. change judgement, so that I know how old my study is. The current Modified Date changes with price and data updates and does not reflect when I last studied the SSG.

            • Show which companies have new data since my last data update.

              One helpful feature of Toolkit 6 is that it shows which companies have updated data since my last data update, i.e. companies that have had quarterly earnings releases. That indicates which companies I need to re-study. Otherwise, it is not evident which companies need re-study.

              • Enhance PDFs to show all plots.

                When I make a PDF to print or share, extra plots, such as dividends or shares outstanding, are eliminated. It would be greatly beneficial to maintain all plots and their positional relationships as I have them in the SSG Plus graph.

                • Make labels more descriptive

                  It would be helpful if some of the labels were updated to make them more descriptive, so we don't have to guess or reverse engineer the numbers to figure them out.

                  For example: in the Fundamental Company Data section, user has no way of knowing just by looking at the table if the column labeled "Forecast (%)" is an annual forecast or is it the forecast for 5 years in total?

                  In section 3, it says "High this year" and "Low this year". Does that mean the calendar year, or is it a TTM time period? (plus it would be…

                  • Add ability to input prior quarter or year when data is missing from data feed.

                    1st Quarter of 2016 data for Flowers Foods is missing. I have contacted both BI (June 6) and Morningstar (June 22, July 31, and August 16) to have the data added. It is still not in the data feed and I cannot add a prior quarter of data to the SSG manually to include the missing data.

                      • Create a new report to show user judgment (forecast) reference points

                        The report could be printed alone or with the SSG PDF and would show similar information as the 4 judgment/forecast pop-up windows in order to provide a reference of what was chosen and the other reference points that were displayed at that point in time.

                        • Allowing locking of data on an SSG.

                          Allowing locking of data on an SSG to prevent accidental updates if more than 1 SSG on a company. Some keep a separate SSG for each addl buy of a co. Locking would prevent accidental updating of that SSG.

                          • Add to Section 3 the Average P/E Ratio, Current P/E Ratio, Relative Value, Projected P/E Ratio, PEGY Ratio, Projected Relative Value

                            Add to Section 3 the Average P/E Ratio, Current P/E Ratio, Relative Value, Projected P/E Ratio, PEGY Ratio, Projected Relative Value, TTM EPS, FTM EPS and Avg TTM + FTM EPS similar to Section 3 of Toolkit 6. When using SSGPlus I have to always access my Toolkit 6 program to view these items in TK6 Section 3 as I have not yet found an equivalent in SSGPlus.

                            • On the 'Compare Peers' page, legend/graph colors should be consistent from one tab to the next

                              When moving from one tab to the next on the comparing peers screen it would be a lot easier if the graphs for each of the peers was always the same color.

                                      • Timely Stock price data feed

                                        Currently I can get accurate closing prices and updates using TK but not the SSG+ which is a whole day behind. Can this timeliness be improved?

                                          Toolkit’s intra-day pricing data comes from Yahoo!. We have seen multiple issues with incorrect data from Yahoo and we won’t consider using that service on a new product. Additionally, Yahoo is moving to stop redistribution of the data. Typically, use of the Stock Selection Guide is not so dependent upon daily price fluctuation so this is not a very common request. We’ll take this under advisement and review the costs for adding an intra-day price feed when we next re-quote our data contracts.

                                          Could you add a print option for the peer graphs? I tried to print the screen but the output showed the graph printed over the SSG so it was unreadable. A printout of some of the peer graphs would be very useful at club meetings.
