  1. in the stock search tool

    I think you should be able to filter sales growth earnings growth current P/E p/e to historical p/E based on greater than or less than what ever variable you are looking for. For example if I was searching for a stock to add to my portfolio in the consumer information sector I get 288 stocks then if I narrow that down to say the advertising industry I may want to look at companies that have sales growth greater than say 12%. Presently you can't do that in the results area

  4. SSG Printouts Should Mirror the Data Series and Time Periods the User Selected in SSG Plus

    The first page of a printed SSG always shows Sales, Pre-Tax Profit, EPS, Hi/Low Prices, Sales Detailed Estimates and EPS Detailed Estimates regardless of what data the user selects to view in the Legend box of SSGPlus.

    Likewise, the Quarterly Growth Trend Data (when selected for printing) always shows Sales and EPS for TTM and Last 5 Years of Data regardless of what data series or time period the user selected in SSGPlus.

    For example: On SSG Page 1, a user may want to add the Dividends, Total Debt and Shares Outstanding in addition to the usual. Or, the user…

  5. "Quarterly Data" graphs: Add a "most recent 3 years" option.

    "Quarterly Data" graphs: add a "most recent 3 years" option. This is especially important for fast growing, small companies. The first 2 high-performing years often skew the graph, making the recent years graph line appear almost flat. We always look at the pink Trailing 4 Quarters, Pre-Tax Profit % Change. Having a 3 year option would help us to visually see the recent change.

  6. Add CNBC to Research/Analyst Estimates

    Add CNBC since the site gives a 3-5 yr EPS growth estimate, and a comparison to peers, industry, and the S&P500. This information is lacking on most of the research websites.

  8. Allow printing of the Search Results

    There should be a way to print the search results to make it easier to research all the companies. It is frustrating to have to enter the criteria multiple times, or print the companies 10 companies at a time.

  9. Member Sentiment window

    When I get the Member Sentiment window.... it appears "locked" in position.... I would love to be able to move it aside so that I can see and manipulate the info in that window and ALSO see the Analyze SSG screen and the Valuation SSG screen.... The sentiment window covers up the data I want to compare and evaluate...

  10. I would like to be able to share an entire portfolio with my club members without sharing it one stock at a time.

    For example, I have a portfolio of solar energy stocks. I'd like to be able to share that portfolio with just a click rather than go stock by stock. As the club's secretary, I have the club's watch list in another portfolio based on previous "stocks to study" that our club members have done. And, my wife and I are both BI members, so I'd like to be able to share portfolios between ourselves easily. For example, our watch list. And, I want to create a portfolio of great local companies. As it is now, I must create the SSGs,…

    Decades ago, I believe in Toolkit, you could use current holding, Stock A, enter purchase price, date, current price and date (allowing capital gain calculation if sold), plus your current total tax bracket. THEN Challenge Stock A, taking after tax proceeds and compare to new Stock B... to see projected return 3-5 years later.
    This was EXCELLENT so you can see if just holding Stock A, including unrealized gains, is actually superior to selling A and buying Stock B with after tax amount left.

  16. Ask to auto complete an SSG like Toolkit

    This would also help when quickly building a portfolio and to know if a company is viable.

    Under the Research/BetterInvesting/Member Sentiment Tab: set the "Average" row to be viewable without having to scroll to the bottom of page. So, if, for example, only the top ten forecasts were selected, the average would show without scrolling; or if all forecasts were selected, the average would show without scrolling.

  20. Allow SSG to be created where a ticker is not included in the data feed or from manual data

    I am researching an ADR of a company, which trades OTC. (ex: DKILY, Daikin Industries, a $53B market cap company) I am unable to start an SSG in this company, as the ticker is not found in the data.

    I think there should be a "manual mode" for the SSG, which would be useful not only for OTC companies, but also companies listed on foreign exchanges. It could also be useful as a learning tool, to find and populate the data, in order to become familiar with their meaning and source.
