  1. Add Defense and Offense Reports

    TK 6 had the Defense and Offense Reports. My new club is using SSG Plus, and I am greatly missing those D&O reports. Defense used to be particularly helpful in keeping us honest on our chartings, as it showed how earnings etc did vs. how we charted - could see trends for over optimisim by some of us etc.

  2. Please make it so that the R squared, PEG, and Relative Value % PRINT out on the SSG.

    These are on the Toolkit when it is printed and they are very useful to have them visually when a company is being discussed in a group.

  3. A new column that shows Annual Return for every SSG under the Studies tab in the Portfolios and Studies section

    This feature would add a new Column called Total Return and display the Compound Annual Return using high P/E from the SSG.

    This way when there are hundred SSGs or more, they can be sorted by the Total return to see what your top candidates are.

  4. Projecting the Future Stock Price

    Add a second (or optional) calculation to the second page of the SSG to use the Price/Sales (P/S) ratio and the forecasted sales growth to calculate the forecasted stock price over 5 years. This will provide another metric to quantify the increase in the stock price.

  5. I would like to see options to the first or third page of the SSG PRO graph lines that would display over time the Stock Price/ Sales ratio.

    I recommend graphs be added to the SSG's to show , over time, the flow of the following ratios: Stock Price/Sales (P/S), Stock Price/Free cash flow (P/FCF) or (P/CF), and Debit/Equity. Plotting these points would help materially in selecting quality stocks.

  6. Outliers & Historical P/Es

    When one excludes an EPS in Section1, it is likely the High and Low EPS will be outliers in Section 3- automatically exclude them. Additionally/Alternatively allow the user to exclude P/Es in the historical graph. Right now FB and SBUX 10-year historical graphs are pretty useless due to one or more year have extremely high P/Es.

  7. On the Research , Analysts Estimates, since Zacks supplies the data to NASDAQ can the NASDAQ entry be labeled to indicate that?

    Category Research: Inform the user that Zacks data is duplicated on the NASDAQ site by the link name.

  8. Save featured list

    I ran a screen and then reviewed each screen item using the preview option. On the ones I was interested in, I selected "Save to filter list" (see screenshot immediately below). Next, I opened the filtered list (see second screenshot "Show Filtered Items" below in green).

    Based on the online training videos I watched, I think "Show Filtered Items" below in green is fairly new. I really like the feature, but would like to be able to save my filtered list for viewing later. Is there a way to do this?

  10. Link Research Tab Items to videos describing/explaining their use

    The Research Tab on the SSG is a gold mine of information.
    Often, there are either Stock Up or Ticker Talk videos that explain how to use those Research Tabs.

    Unfortunately, many times I can't find/remember where the videos are that explain how to use some of the Research Tab features. It would be very helpful to have a hyperlink on the Research tab item that links it to the latest video that explains how to use it.

    Ann and Ken could also use the absence of a linkage to identify candidates for future Ticker Talk/Stock Up subjects.

  12. Enable searching on zones for completed SSGs so you can quickly identify stocks that have entered buy or sell zones.

    In the display of one’s studies, there’s a column that shows whether or not the SSG is complete. Why not show which zone the stick is in? The answers would be Buy, Hold, Sell, or Incomplete.

  14. Display Pre-Tax Profit on CoreSSG

    Please add the PTP Chart and Line on the CoreSSG. This is fundamental information that helps us determine whether a company is growing.

    The chart should be added between Step 1: Historical Sales and Step 2: Historical Earnings Per Share.

    Then, the PTP Line could be displayed on the Historical Stock Price Review.

    See attached File.

  16. Use Correct Data

    The SSG Plus and Core are pulling incorrect data from Morningstar for Gentex resulting in flawed analyses for the companies.

    One example is that BI and Morningstar report GNTX released dividends of $0.33 per share for 2018. In fact, GNTX posted dividends of $0.44 per share.

    I wonder, how come these basic data are incorrect? What other data are incorrect and resulting in flawed analyses?

    Idea: Create a data quality verification algorithm to ensure your vendors are supplying you with correct inputs so your customers (members) can create correct outputs. I would urge you to remember that a vendor's Garbage…

  17. Re-name stock search page to 'Stock Ideas' page

    While the Magnifying glass icon link to the page says 'Stock Ideas', the page title doesn't - it's inconsistent.
    Actually there doesn't seem to be a page title, unless it's 'Search for a company'. but that's not really what the page does.
    'Search for a company', 'Search Criteria', etc are good for parts of the page, but 'Stock Ideas' is a better name for the page itself.
    It's even the name of the drop-down category in this feature request section. So maybe that's what the developers call it??

  18. Allow outliers in quarterly trend graph

    Using INGN as an example, it had the 3/15 quarter with 3000% EPS growth. Changing to Last 5 years, did not impact graph. Limit growth to 50% jshowed sales trend better but most of EPS cut off as it was above 50%. Current graph options are pretty meaningless for this stock. Having ability to quickly exclude that quarter would be helpful.

  20. Revise the layout of the "Determine Low Price - Next 5-Years" window

    The top choice "Your Low Stock Price Forecast" should be the last choice instead of the first. Users are prone to complete this and ignore the remaining options. If the 2nd choice , Low PE area is not completed, the Total Return using the Average PE in Section 5 can adversely be affected. Additionally, add "Update" to the the TTM EPS in the second area.
    A better title for the field may be "Determine Low P/E and Selected Low Price". See the attached for a layout suggestion.
