  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

    Buy price to satisfy US/DS of
    3 to 1 and 15% total return:

  10. When making manual changes to data change the color of the changed data so it can be quickly recognizes as changed

    We can tell the data is changed by the checkmark but we do not know which data in the qtr or year has been changed. If the color of the data was another color one could tell at a glance which data point had been changed without digging back through the notes.

  12. Make the data date show the quarter and year on the SSG yr over yr Qtr report like Toolkit used to do. Ex: 4th Qtr 2019

    Currrently the Quarterly info box says for example MSFT FY 2020 Qtr ending (06/20). I think this would be the 4th quarter for them since their fiscal year ends in June. So is this 4th 2020 & they are already starting 2021?

  13. 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.

  15. Redesign look and feel to respond to screen size

    Redesign all pages of all tools to respond to the screen size (responsive design). Large screens can see more content and content is still functional and viewable on mobile.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  20. Add past 5 years sales growth and EPS percentage where it is visual on page 1.

    Add the past five years sales growth and EPS percentage on page 1. This is important to look at when researching a company. The only place to find it is on the page where you download information to Toolkit.
