    Add the capability to be alerted/emailed when stock represented by the saved SSG moves into/out of a Buy/Sell zone based on current price. (not the price within the study).

  2. Be able to set target buy price based on PAR in addition to TR

    Add to existing "SSG Results Summary", just above the "Closing Price" line, a section that computes "Buy price to satisfy US/DS of 3 to 1 and <variable target return that can be entered> on projected average return.

  3. Allow outliers to be chosen in the Peer graph display

    Allowing outliers to be selected in the peer graph display will allow the graph to rescale based on displayed data and will recalculate the growth rates/averages that are displayed.

  4. Add a judgment audit like Toolkit

    Add a judgment audit like Toolkit. These are algorithms and reporting that examine the user's entered judgment for sales, earnings, high PE, low PE, low price, and/or payout on potential problem areas.

  6. Enable the TK6 library feature

    It's very handy to be able to switch to another library. I have one called "junk" where I don't worry about creating quality SSGs. I have two others for my club and my personal SSGs. I can do TK challenges on the last two without worrying so much about corrupting my results. If I get another vote, I'll vote to add the challenger.

  7. Match target return to company size automatically and also provide a way to override the values.

    Instead of using a 15% target return for every stock, reduce the target return to the level appropriate to the company size. A medium size company would have a target return of 12%, etc. This might help newbies realize that 15% growth is not necessarily realistic for large companies. Also, could help get users looking at the return of their entire porfolio.

  8. Add more fundamental data to the data grid

    Add data and growth rates for dividends, shares outstanding, free cash flow, net income, book value, and long-term debt to the data grid at the bottom of the 'Analyze Growth & Quality' page in the data grid with the sales, EPS and pre-tax profit data.

  9. Incorporate/Integrate Stock Research Form into SSG so judgments,and date automatically transfer

    Incorporate /integrate Stock Research From with SSG so that the Stock Research Form is automatically populated by judgments you make on the SSG. This would be similar to what happens in Turbo Tax Software's Step-By-Step Program feature. It asks you questions and based on your answer the 1040 Form is filled in. For example, the highest /lowest and average PEs could easily be transferred to the Form after that judgment is made.

    I am raising this because i find it cumbersome and inefficient to be switching back and forth between the SSG(internet) and the Stock Research Form(offline word document). If…

  13. Show the Assess Stock Price Graph when you click on quick view for a study

    When clicking on quick view for a study, display the color coded 25/50/25% graph for assessing stock price (either instead of or in addition to the typical SSG chart with sales, stock price, and earnings).

  15. Add the ability to remove Pre-tax Profit Margin data (outliers) in the Preferred Procedure window.

    In the Preferred Procedure window, it would be nice to be able to identify outliers in the Pre-tax Profit Margin data (from the most recent 5 fiscal years) to quickly calculate a new average. The new average would then appear as the default value for the PTPM in the preferred procedure calculator.

  18. Allow more than 5 companies to be compared with the Stock Comparison Guide

    I find limiting the number of stocks to just 5 to be too small. I would like to compare up to about 15 stocks, say our complete stock portfolio.

  19. Allow an SSG from the past to be generated

    I would like to generate an SSG at a point in time in the past. This way we could evaluate our past judgements and see who closely they matched known future results.

  20. Add multiple 'User Defined' fields/rows to the the Stock Comparison Guide

    Allow the user to define a new row in the SCG where they would add a user defined title for the field and then for each company/SSG would have the ability to add text for that field.
    The user would then be able to highlight the cell for the information/metrics that are preferable and the cell highlighting would be included in the sum of all highlights at the top of the SCG page.
    The example here would be some industry specific metric or financial ratio that is important for the company or industry.
