  1. Eliminate CoreSSG

    I have been in BI about twenty years and currently a chapter president. I see no real reason to have SSGCore and those resources could be used on the flagship SSGPlus. I hear this from many BI members all the time. They feel as I in that newbies and experienced members just get quickly get confused or frustrated and jump back to the fast and straight forward SSGPlus. We all like and trust SSGPlus. Not a complain, just my observation.

      Hi,
      Thanks for writing in! We’re reading your feedback item with interest.
      In our member feedback, we see an increasing trend of confusion over the use of SSGPlus, the basic operation of the online program and the basic concepts of how the Stock Selection Guide process works. This is strongly correlated with the trend towards clubs and chapters encouraging members to ‘just use the SSGPlus’ and skip the fundamentals introduced with the CoreSSG.
      We feel strongly that new users to the online tools and members new to our investing methodology should create at least a few studies with the CoreSSG to understand the fundamentals before jumping into SSGPlus and all of the different views of the data.
      Regards,
      BetterInvesting

    • Mutual Funds

      Really would like the research to be able to study Mutual Funds, since many members while investing in stocks, most likely have a 401K or similar program through work that is limited to Mutual Funds and not individual stocks.

        Hi,
        We previously had a mutual fund analysis product for a long time but ultimately found that there was not enough interest in the BetterInvesting community to fund the $100K+ cost for the mutual fund data feed.

        • Add industries to the search criteria

          Because we do industry studies it would be helpful to be able to search on individual industries.

            Hi,
            The online tools screener, by intent, does not have all of the features of MyStockProspector in order maintain a streamlined, easy-to-understand experience. We encourage users, through the link on the page, to investigate MyStockProspector for a more robust screening tools.

            • Add the ability to import .ssg files to SSG Plus and Core

              SSG Plus and SSG Core now allow for importing .itk files. It would also be nice to be able to import .ssg files. Toolkit is able to export in both the .itk and .ssg formats. Our club uses the .ssg format because one member has Stock Analyst, which is unable to import .itk files.

              • Add Stock Rover to Research/Key Statistic dropdown in SSGPlus

                Stock Rover is a very comprehensive research facility that provides near one-stop researching. It does not offer estimates, just the data so better fit is under the Key Statistics drop down. The free version offers more than what most stock researchers would need to produce a quality stock study.

                  StockRover does not fit within our general guidelines for research links for a number of reasons:
                  1 – the site requires a sign-in by all users. The only other link that is similar to this is SeekingAlpha and that caused some serious discussion. In that case the benefit of an excellent list of transcripts outweighed the login aspect. Additionally on Seeking Alpha’s site you can still see some functionality without logging in.
                  2 – The direct, ticker-specific links to Stock Rover’s functionality do not work when using a phone or tablet.
                  3 – The information available when reviewing a specific company does not appear to be better or more comprehensive than similar information obtained on other sites.

                  PERT online view requires scrolling left/right to be able to compare EST_EPS_GROWTH to TTM_EPS_GROWTH. Need to be able to view without scrolling.

                    Hi,
                    There are too many columns in the PERT report to format all the data on a typical browser without scrolling.
                    We’d recommend using the browser zoom at 75% to see all of the data without scrolling horizontally.
                    Regards,

                        he CoreSSG and SSGPlus are not designed to handle the intricacies of Mutual Fund analysis as mutual funds cannot be analyzed in the same manner as single stocks. I’ve sent your request to our upper management for consideration (as obtaining access to mutual fund data that can be integrated into the tools is very costly). Thanks for the feedback!

                      • Add sort capability in Stock Comparison Guide

                        I like to "pre-screen" candidate stocks but doing a set of SSGPlus studies accepting at face value the ACE estimates and reasonable PEs. Then I use the Comparison Guide to hone in on the most likely companies to study further (by rejecting out of hand those that don't make the grade even using the ACE optimistic values). Been having problems finding the studies without the ability to sort.

                          Hi,
                          The ability to pick studies for the SCG has been improved by the suggest feature which matches on ticker and/or study name and is sorted in date descending order. If you have recently completed studies then simply typing in those tickers will show the study at or near the top of the list.
                          Regards,
                          BetterInvesting

                            Consider adding more individual criteria items like screening for growth on shorter periods of time.

                            • Add the capability to directly set the forecasted high price

                              Allow the user to set the forecasted high price directly rather than have it calculated from the result of the high P/E X high EPS calculation.
