How can we improve our Stock Selection Guide Tools?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. List what quarter of the fiscal year is being reported beside the date.

    We would like to be able to complete our quarterly reports forms more easily from the OLT. One data point missing is the number of the quarter of the fiscal year being reported. (ex: Q4 6/30/17) Would also like to see projected relative value on the SCG. (Which is a great tool BTW.)

    • Allow user to expand the active window both vertically and horizontally.

      Being able to change the vertical and horizontal limits myself and to fit the parameters per my computer setup, would be a big help. Under "My Studies" you cannot see all the columns at the same time.

        • Add Company Size to the Company Summary

          Folks have a hard time remember the company size definitions by BetterInvesting. Consider adding company size that to the Company Summary box based on BI definitions

          • Error in Adding long named file to Portfolio

            If a study is saved with a long file name adding it to a Portfolio is a problem. Cant easily get to the check box.
            To solve this the dialog box must be horizontally scrollable or the file name needs to be truncated or the dialog box needs to be resizable.
            Simplest to to truncate long file names in this dialog box

            • Add a Stock Wish List - A list of Stocks to look further into

              It would be great to:
              0) Create a further review stock list
              1) That list could be a portfolio but stocks in a portfolios require that an SSG has been done. Perhaps The Wish List is better in another new list.
              2) Have a check box in the search tool to add a stock to the further review list.
              3) Enter a table of stocks (from a comma separated text list) that have been found outside of the SSG into the further review list
              4) Add a quick preview Data for like one in the stock screen search list.

              • Add an option to the FILE menu to allow for "Add to a Portfolio"

                When completing a study that we want to add to an existing portfolio or watch list, it would be helpful (and simpler) if the user could do that directly from the study, instead of having to return to the list of portfolios and then edit the portfolio to add the stock.

                • Add the ability to import .ssg files to SSG Plus and Core

                  SSG Plus and SSG Core now allow for importing .itk files. It would also be nice to be able to import .ssg files. Toolkit is able to export in both the .itk and .ssg formats. Our club uses the .ssg format because one member has Stock Analyst, which is unable to import .itk files.

                  • member sentiment make pop up retain

                    It is hard to compare what I have entered and what the member sentiment is averages are. Is there a way to keep the pop-up member sentiment visible while I review and edit my entries.

                    • Suggest only One Tool

                      I know way to much energy explaining the difference and frankly the difference is not worth the time and effort spent. May I recommend that there be only one tool that is continually improved. Perhaps there is 2 modes expert and newbie.

                      • Include date on print version Notes and ability to reorder Notes

                        Right now it only includes subject and description. The date column would be helpful as you follow the stock over time.

                        Also, it would be nice to be able to reorder and/or sort the notes. Sometimes I don't do my research in the order of the SSG but it is easier for club members if I present the information in the logical order of the SSG.

                        • I understand the SSGs are for finding stocks that fit the BI criteria. What if we could enter the price we paid for a stock to evaluate it

                          I understand the SSGs are for finding stocks that fit the BI criteria. What if we could enter the price we paid for a stock to evaluate it going forward. The BUYs HOLDs SELLs are based on the current price, right? If we paid more than the current price, the SSG does't show us the potential in our owned stock. Right?

                            52-Week High Price (PE) 61.05 (27.4) and 52-Week Low Price (PE) 33.67 (15.1).

                            • The two date columns in the list of stocks should be more informative

                              By default, the original date of the study is added to the name of the stock, so there is no need to show it in a separate column. The much more relevant dates are the Most Recent Price and the Judgment Date, which would be the last date in which any of the judgment items are modified. It would also be helpful to see the Most Recent Quarter date. All three of these dates are available and select-able in the Library listing. Let the user select the one or two preferred dates to be displayed.

                              • Quick Navigation should be simplified.

                                There should only be one field for entry of the ticker. If the company is in the user's database, it should be listed for selection, as it is now. In addition to the company name, there should also be an optional choice to load a new datafile. Having a separate field for entering the ticker for a new company should be unnecessary.

                                  These averages have prices, EPS and dividends. Section 1 plot would not have a sales line but would have EPS line with a projection and price bars. Section 3 would have prices, EPS, P/E ratios, dividends, yields and could have projected highs and lows. We need the ability to evaluate the market as well as individual stocks.

                                  • Add a timestamp to the Member Sentiment study date so we can tell if a number of studies were done in a short period of time.

                                    With a timestamp and the study date, we could see if a number of studies were done at essentialy the same time indicating that they were probably all done by the same person or maybe a lot of studies done after an online presentation like Stock Up or Ticker Talk.

                                    • Display the average price for a stock, graphically, and include it on the front page of the SSG along with sales, pretax profits and earning

                                      In addition, or instead of, having vertical price bars, showing high and low for a given year, show the average price as a graph line. It would be nice to see how the price moved along with the sales, earnings, etc graphically

                                          I used the search tool to look for Communication Services companies - it would be nice to be able to create a new portfolio of the companies I found by importing into a new portfolio and then work on refining the SSGs once I get them into the new portfolio
