  1. Exclude outlier data from Compare Peers page

    When using the Compare Peers page, a very high outlier data point can force all the other data to be squished at the bottom of the graph. For example, if I compare GOOG and FB high PEs, the FB 2013 PE of 4500 causes the graph to scale the PEs to the range of 4500. This makes the rest of the graphed data useless to view.
    It would be nice to exclude FB's 4500 high PE point from the graph.

  2. On the Portfolio and Studies page, let portfolio view extend across user's screen to reduce scrolling

    On the Portfolio and Studies page, user has to scroll back and forth to view the entire portfolio table. There is a lot of wasted blue space to the left and right of the portfolio view. It would be helpful if the view wasn't fixed to a specific width, but used responsive design to allow it to expand to fit the entire browser window width per the user's own computer and browser width preferences. Because the row headings are fixed, once user scrolls to the right, you don't know what stock you're looking at for the right side columns.

  3. On the Portfolio and Studies page, add column: number of shares

    In the portfolio view on the Portfolio and Studies page, please consider adding a column showing the number of shares for a particular holding. It would make it much easier to replace old SSGs with new ones in an existing portfolio, and check your data, if you could easily see the number of shares for the old SSG. Toolkit does this via a special window.

  4. Add a quick access alpha-bar to the glossary so you don’t have to scroll thru the terms

    Add a quick access alpha-bar to the glossary so we don’t have to scroll thru the terms to find what we need.

    Also, add more margin term — gross, net

  7. 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.

  8. Company search add checkbox

    I’m looking at the Company Search section (via Core/Plus SSG), and I wish there was a checkbox or something on each stock when I’m going thru the Data Preview popup, for selecting out items I might be interested in looking further into - narrowing the list, as it were.
    Yes, I can write down the ticker of each interesting stock, but if I could checkbox each one, and then only Company Search look at those, and refine the list further (by unchecking some), would sure be helpful.
    Not sure how persistent I would want the checkboxes to be, wouldn’t want…

  9. Portfolio update SSG

    Be able to update Portfolio with new SSG report without having to delete existing from portfolio and then add new SSG (sometimes imported from member following the stock) into the portfolio and reentering shares held. (i.e. Replace SSG abc 1/1/19 with abc 3/1/19)

  10. 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.

  11. Add revenue ranges to the Size Diversification Report

    The current size definitions for small, medium, and large companies are not easily located. Add a legend to the Size Diversification Report that explains the revenue range for each size.

  12. tab for stock high price

    you should have a tab for directly inputting the stock high price because if the stock has no prior earnings, it is impossible to get a sensical high p/e forcast, ie ROKU. We expect earnings in the future but cannot use the SSG because of this problem

  14. 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.

  15. When data is changed, keep that data Highlighted

    When I unlock and change quarterly, or annual data, keep that data cell highlighted so it can be easily identified when reviewing the data later on.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Enhance the Notes Table in SSG Plus to show the notes with new-lines and spacing as formatted when entered.

    One issue I have with the site is that the notes are very hard to read. Would it be possible for you to add some code that provided the same "new-line" and "space" formatting as was entered in the table of notes in SSG?
    (Please note that I realize that the note is displayed correctly in the pop-up box if I click on the note in the table)

    Here is an example of what I am talking about. I would prefer that notes in the notes table appeared as I entered the note.

    Here is how the text appears in…
