  1. I want to see the ACE numbers, S&E, for the next two years as points on the SSG as well as the ability to add data out to year five.

    In TK we can input data for earnings and sales for the next 5 years. We fill in the ACE numbers from YF for the next two years and if we have a VL we add the numbers for year 5.

        • Provide capability for clubs to share their SSGs via a club portfolio that all club members can access.

          Two issues: (1) access by all club members (with SSGPlus subscription) to access club's portfolio and (2) individuals in multiple clubs being able to access one single SSG but in multiple, club-designated portfolios.

                • Put a line under Section 3 that will give the RV and the Projected PEG (Current PE/ Est EPS Growth Rate).

                  Please put a line under the SSG Plus Section 3 that will give the RV calculated as (Current PE/5-Yr Avg PE) and the Projected PEG calculated as (Current PE/ Est EPS Growth Rate). These are very important valuation measures.

                  Relative Value according to my old Stock Analyst manuals:
                  " Good value is present when the current P/E is less than the historical average P/E ratio. This is measured by dividing the current P/E by the average P/E (x 100) to produce a figure called the Relative Value...This is the best overall measure of the reasonableness of a current P/E multiple...Relative…

                  • Clean up the PDF feature for PERT.

                    PERT in PDF format has no colors, cannot be sorted, has no header on the second and following pages, column widths are too small to display data correctly, percent sign usage is inconsistent (% should be eliminated), company name does not need to appear twice, and a fixed two or three line box for each equity would improve readability

                    • 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.

                                      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.
