    • Adding Return on Assets as an “Evaluate Management” metric when studying bank stocks

      According to many resources, Return on Assets (ROA) is one of the best ways to evaluate profitability of a bank. %Pre-tax Profit on Sales is less useful when evaluating a bank, so I would suggest replacing that line with ROA for banks.

      The calculation is done in one of 2 ways:
      Return on Total Assets (ROTA) = CY Net Profit / CY Total Assets
      Return on Average Assets (ROAA) = CY Net Profit / ((CY Total Assets + PY Total Assets)/2)

      Where CY = current year; PY = previous year

      Both are used. ROTA would result in a more conservative…

      • Allow the ability to update all relevant studies as a group rather than one at a time

        It is time consuming and annoying to have to update all stocks for a club meeting one at a time. This should be changed to allow one step updating.

          Thanks for submitting and voting on this feature! It can now be accomplished by setting up a portfolio, adding the relevant stocks and then you can update the SSGs (either just prices or price and data) as a group. See the Portfolio Quick Start Guide available from the tools ‘Help and Information’ Tab for more information.

          • Allow the user to update their study from within the study display

            Allow the study data to be updated without going back to the 'Your Studies' tab in the file manage section.

            • Under research tab have the sites grouped by type of information being sought.

              For example:
              Research (the heading tab)
              EPS estimates
              ----------------- Yahoo (linked to section with EPS estimates)
              ----------------- Reuter (etc)
              Competitors
              ----------------- Yahoo (linked to section with EPS estimates)

              This would serve to prompt the analyst to go to the better sites to consistently get quality information on the topic of interest.

                • For the quarterly data display, move the scroll bar to the bottom of the data grid.

                  pre-select the bottom of the quarterly data table so the most recent data is immediately in view.

                  • Add an analyst estimate data panel to the 'Analyze Growth and Quality' page

                    Show this data on the page in a panel or other display rather than having to mouse over the graph to see the values.

                      • Add the TTM EPS to the printed SSG.

                        This suggestion applies to the printouts in both the CoreSSG and SSGPlus. Since the TTM EPS is often used in the Low Price calculation and is often the start point of the EPS 5 year projection, the value should be printed on the form for reference. Suggest that the TTM EPS value be added to section 3, near the current P/E, and/or to the graph to annotate the most recent quarter (if one has been reported beyond the fiscal year).

                          • Add a visual divider between FY data and Q data in the EPS Forecast window.

                            Some kind of visual divider between the FY and Q Data for the data displayed on the right side of the EPS Forecast pop-up (PTP Margin, shares outstanding, etc.) would make this data a little easier to read.

                                      • Allow data to be locked

                                        Allow the fundamental data to be 'locked' so that new/updated data is only added and doesn't overwrite older or edited fundamental data.

                                          User entered data is now locked on a row-by-row basis.
                                          We advise that all ‘non-changed’ data is kept unlocked so it is automatically updated (upon a user initiated refresh/update) in the case of a stock split.

                                          Add the ability to select and delete multiple studies at one time.
