  1. Add the ability to add Quarterly & Annual data for companies where manual data entry is necessary (Add a Quarter - not just Edit)

    Certain companies have imported data that conflicts with Value Line and/or Yahoo financial data. For these companies it is necessary to manually edit the data. This works. However, as another Quarter is completed, you are unable to add an additional Quarter. I imagine you are also unable to add a Year when the year is complete.

        • In all studies view, bottom right - buttuns print is black background is dark blue -- change print to white.

          In all studies view, at the bottom right of tool display - there are buttons the print is black but the background is dark blue -- very hard to see -- so change print to white so its easy to see and read.

          • Make peers display persistently throughout SSG

            Please make the peer display persistently throughout the SSG so that we do not have to re-select them each time we open the graphs.

              • Decimal precision: 2 decimals for EPS & Price, 1 for all else

                Having a higher precision level doesn't make it more accurate. Also send the wrong signal re the accuracy. Follow TK6 lead.

                • Save preferences for columns to display in the 'Your Studies' area

                  Save my preferred columns to display when viewing all of my saved studies. Or better yet have a menu of personal saved displays that can be selected from a drop down (like saving a screen search).

                  • Adjustable scale (add/reduce) [in conjunction w/dragable lines]

                    Similar to the TK6 feature of adjustable scale to increase and/or decrease the Y-axis scale. (and in conjunction with having the ability to reposition the lines to make the view clearer and/or be able to see the price bar trend)

                      Warren Buffett states that when he and Charlie buy common stock for Berkshire they approach the transition as if they are buying into a private business. They look at the economic prospects of the business, the people in charge of running it, and the price they must pay. (see The Essays of Warren Buffett by Lawrence A. Cunningham, Second Edition, p 77) BI does good with teaching about how to in economic prospects and if the price is right, but we need more information on management. How do we research that? Thanks.

                        • Add the capability to import SSG studies that have been sent by another club member.

                          The SSGPlus does not have the capability to import SSG studies that have been sent by another club member. You can export your files so others can view your stock studies, but the SSGPlus does not have the ability to import studies from others. The import capability should gohand-in-hand with the export capability.

                            • Show Sales % Growth Rate in Preferred Procedure

                              In the Preferred Procedure screen under the column of Sales numbers it would help to show the Historical Sales % Growth Rate since we are asked to enter our % Judgment Forecast. Also be able to remove Sales Outliers while in the Preferred Procedure screen so can see the % change.

                                    • add the ability to see the daily fluctuation in Upside/Downside ratio without rerunning the study

                                      When I open Toolkit - after I refresh stock prices, I can immediately see the changes in Upside/downside ratio. this functionality is critical to the tool and I would like to see this replicated online.

                                        Hi,
                                        The upside/downside ratio is immediately updated after prices are updated/refreshed. The prices can be updated by individual study or by portfolio from the ‘My Studies’ page.
                                        The updated upside/downside ratio is shown in the study as well as the applicable portfolio reports.
                                        Regards,
                                        BetterInvesting

                                            You can update all studies in the account by clicking on the ‘Portfolios’ bar on the ‘My Studies’ screen then looking for the ‘All Studies’ row and clicking on the Refresh (circular) icon to refresh/update the data in all studies.
                                            You also have the ability to update all studies in a single user-defined portfolio in a similar manner.
                                            Regards,
