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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Mini Graph - Report company name not just ticker & Company Description

    Would like the mini graph to show the company name and allow the company description to open up when you hover over the company name.

    • Allow Portfolio Summary Report to be Printed as Sorted on the Screen

      I can set up a portfolio to follow, and on the screen I can reorganize the stocks in the portfolio in alphabetical order, but when I go to print the list of the stocks in the Summary Report, they always print in the original order. Allow the Summary Report to print as sorted and shown on the screen.

      • Stop automatic page reversing

        We have two pages of stocks. When updating EACH file on the second page, file manager auto-reverses to page 1. Very annoying to have to "go back" to page 2 after each one.

        • Add 2 columns to the Portfolio Summary Report to display number of shares and total stock value in the portfolio.

          Adding this basic information to the Portfolio Summary Report would make the portfolio "snapshot" more complete and useful to clubs and individuals.

          • List the Company Size in Growth Rates section in Stock Comparison Guide.

            I have different growth rate expectations based on revenue; would be nice to have company size listed on SCG.

              • Lock the header

                Please lock the header portion of the 'Better Investing sentiment' screen. When we choose all the SSGs in the sentiment screen, it is hard to find which values belong to which column titles.

                Thanks

                • Add the ability to add Quarterly & Annual data for companies where manual data entry is necessary (Add a Quarter - not just Edit)

                  Certain companies have imported data that conflicts with Value Line and/or Yahoo financial data. For these companies it is necessary to manually edit the data. This works. However, as another Quarter is completed, you are unable to add an additional Quarter. I imagine you are also unable to add a Year when the year is complete.

                    • Add the capability to import SSG studies that have been sent by another club member.

                      The SSGPlus does not have the capability to import SSG studies that have been sent by another club member. You can export your files so others can view your stock studies, but the SSGPlus does not have the ability to import studies from others. The import capability should gohand-in-hand with the export capability.

                              Having a higher precision level doesn't make it more accurate. Also send the wrong signal re the accuracy. Follow TK6 lead.

                                Warren Buffett states that when he and Charlie buy common stock for Berkshire they approach the transition as if they are buying into a private business. They look at the economic prospects of the business, the people in charge of running it, and the price they must pay. (see The Essays of Warren Buffett by Lawrence A. Cunningham, Second Edition, p 77) BI does good with teaching about how to in economic prospects and if the price is right, but we need more information on management. How do we research that? Thanks.

                                          It is time consuming and annoying to have to update all stocks for a club meeting one at a time. This should be changed to allow one step updating.

                                            Thanks for submitting and voting on this feature! It can now be accomplished by setting up a portfolio, adding the relevant stocks and then you can update the SSGs (either just prices or price and data) as a group. See the Portfolio Quick Start Guide available from the tools ‘Help and Information’ Tab for more information.
