  1. "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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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...

  6. In the past, perhaps with Toolkit version, I believe, for a stock you already own, e.g. Stock A: a) you could enter, for Stock A, the purch

    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.

  7. 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,…

  12. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Notes Default Settings

    With the new notes feature the Staff and Community notes defaults to being on. I recommend that the default be changed to "off" or allow user to set global defaults to their preference. The community notes are often inane and useless.

  18. Add a quick link to go from the SSG page to the BI Home Page

    Like the Tools link from BI Home to the SSG site, it would be most helpful to add a link from the SSG site to the Home page.

  19. Add an "Are You Sure" to the Update All Button

    That button is DANGEROUS! I accidentally pressed it and ALL my studies were updated!!! Not only did this take a LONG time but all my history of SSGs was gone! Why not add an ARE YOU SURE confirmation?
