  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. FFO Data for REITs

    REITs (not for clubs, but of interest to individual investors) generally use Funds from Operations (FFO) instead of EPS. Is there any chance of changing the data feed for REITs?

  6. Screener Preview Data Graph Order

    When you select a column to sort screener results by and then do into Data Preview, the order of the companies remains alphabetical. I'd like the order of companies to be in order of the column I sorted by.

  7. Highlight data changes

    When data is updated (not stock price) highlight the ticker. Keep that ticker highlight until the user 'clears' the message. That way users are notified when changes are made to data and reminded to review new information.

  9. Member sentiment report

    When utilizing the member sentiment I often find variable number of judgments that are clearly outliers. Recently in SBUX I saw a High PE's of 1582, a number of Payouts above 1500 (yes 1500), and a number of low PE's over 900. the unedited averages were High PE 45.8, Lo PE 163.9, payout of 876, with a potential return of 43.8. Really?

    With 493 studies (could these really be called studies?) it is very labor intensive to go through the studies line by line to remove the outliers. There must be a way to throw out judgements that vary to…

  10. List what quarter of the fiscal year is being reported beside the date.

    We would like to be able to complete our quarterly reports forms more easily from the OLT. One data point missing is the number of the quarter of the fiscal year being reported. (ex: Q4 6/30/17) Would also like to see projected relative value on the SCG. (Which is a great tool BTW.)

  11. Add the 3 Morningstar grades from the Search Criteria to the SSG

    The Morningstar fields from the Search Criteria are helpful, and would be even more useful if they can be reflected on the SSG...perhaps in the company info, or on the right side or as a pop-up window.

  12. Add a Stock Wish List - A list of Stocks to look further into

    It would be great to:
    0) Create a further review stock list
    1) That list could be a portfolio but stocks in a portfolios require that an SSG has been done. Perhaps The Wish List is better in another new list.
    2) Have a check box in the search tool to add a stock to the further review list.
    3) Enter a table of stocks (from a comma separated text list) that have been found outside of the SSG into the further review list
    4) Add a quick preview Data for like one in the stock screen search list.

  13. The two date columns in the list of stocks should be more informative

    By default, the original date of the study is added to the name of the stock, so there is no need to show it in a separate column. The much more relevant dates are the Most Recent Price and the Judgment Date, which would be the last date in which any of the judgment items are modified. It would also be helpful to see the Most Recent Quarter date. All three of these dates are available and select-able in the Library listing. Let the user select the one or two preferred dates to be displayed.

  14. Ability to create a new porfolio based upon results of stock search

    I used the search tool to look for Communication Services companies - it would be nice to be able to create a new portfolio of the companies I found by importing into a new portfolio and then work on refining the SSGs once I get them into the new portfolio

  15. Separate Notes from the Tools menu

    Please make Notes a top-level menu item and change the word Notes to bold/italic if any notes have been saved, as is done in Toolkit, to remind the user whether notes have been saved.

  17. Add the 52 week High and Low PE to Section 3 Price Row.

    The current wording 'High This Year and Low This Year should also be retitled to 52 Week High and Low respectively.
