  1. Company search add checkbox

    I’m looking at the Company Search section (via Core/Plus SSG), and I wish there was a checkbox or something on each stock when I’m going thru the Data Preview popup, for selecting out items I might be interested in looking further into - narrowing the list, as it were.
    Yes, I can write down the ticker of each interesting stock, but if I could checkbox each one, and then only Company Search look at those, and refine the list further (by unchecking some), would sure be helpful.
    Not sure how persistent I would want the checkboxes to be, wouldn’t want…

  2. Ticker HeatMap - One for each size of company

    To supplement the "Small Company" pre-defined screen, it would be nice to have heat-map option to have a separate heat map for each company size -- Large, Medium and Small. Would still like the overall for all studies.

  3. Adjust width and/or delete rows & columns

    The ability for these suggestions would add immense capability to the Stock Screener.

  5. Pre-Defined Screens should use the same Criteria as manual entry

    The pre-defined screens use different Criteria that the manual entry for example pre-defined screens use 10 yr Growth numbers for Sales and Earnings and use >10% which is not an option in the drop-down search criteria. Also search criteria use 'EPS R2 5 year greater than 0.9'. Not sure what the cryptic R2 refers to and should be removed and 0.9 and ranges as used in the pre-defined screens dont exist in the manual search. May I suggest that all pre-defined searched use the same search criteria as the user can select to allow a user to enter similar searches…

  6. SSGPlus Search return result fields for Sales/Earnings not consistent

    The Sale & Earnings growth figures in the "search results" for some companies are not consistent with the SSG. For example, stock symbol MOS (Mosaic) shows:
    Sales = 56.3 & Earnings = 8.6 from the Search results
    Sales = 2.6 & Earnings = 3.8 on the SSGPlus

    There are others with just a discrepancy in Earnings.

  7. Filter-Out Stock Screener Results

    In stock screener results,
    One thing i would like is if we could have ability to filter out (i.e. remove say a particular industry, instead of filtering only for a particular industry)

  8. Create a preset search that looks for stocks meeting George Nicholson's Triple-Play.

    George Nicholson's idea of a Triple-Play was briefly mentioned in the old NAIC handbook. With all the great technology in the online SSG tools, it would be nice to have a preset search that would pull in stocks possibly meeting the three requirements for a Triple-Play. Apparently, the aspects of a T/P are found if one has a Value Line account, and many of us don't, or don't have access via libraries.

  10. Add a screener option to find up, straight, and parallel companies.

    The mantra of BI is to find up, straight, and parallel companies. The screener should have an option to find these companies.
