Revise the layout of the "Determine Low Price - Next 5-Years" window
The top choice "Your Low Stock Price Forecast" should be the last choice instead of the first. Users are prone to complete this and ignore the remaining options. If the 2nd choice , Low PE area is not completed, the Total Return using the Average PE in Section 5 can adversely be affected. Additionally, add "Update" to the the TTM EPS in the second area.
A better title for the field may be "Determine Low P/E and Selected Low Price". See the attached for a layout suggestion.33 votes

Be able to select PVQ as the low price
Show the Price Variant Quotient (PVQ) as a select-able option for the Low Price i section 4. Presently an often used feature in Toolkit.30 votes
The status of this item is changed from ‘Under Review’ to ‘No Status’ as we have no current plans for adding PVQ as a low price option at this time. This issue is being kept open for voting.
Show which companies have new data since my last data update.
One helpful feature of Toolkit 6 is that it shows which companies have updated data since my last data update, i.e. companies that have had quarterly earnings releases. That indicates which companies I need to re-study. Otherwise, it is not evident which companies need re-study.28 votes

Clean up the PDF feature for PERT.
PERT in PDF format has no colors, cannot be sorted, has no header on the second and following pages, column widths are too small to display data correctly, percent sign usage is inconsistent (% should be eliminated), company name does not need to appear twice, and a fixed two or three line box for each equity would improve readability18 votes

Timely Stock price data feed
Currently I can get accurate closing prices and updates using TK but not the SSG+ which is a whole day behind. Can this timeliness be improved?16 votes3 comments · SSGPlus · Admin →
Changed from ‘under review’ to ‘no status’ as we have no current plans to pursue intra-day pricing. In our review so far we have not discovered a service that will provide intra-day pricing without raising our data services costs dramatically. This issue is being kept open for voting.

Add a display to show 5 year growth rates
In addition to the 10 year growth rates shown for key fundamental data, add a display for 5 year growth rates as well.13 votes
Allow price override and also display calculated value in Section 4
In section 4a or 4b, when entering P/E and EPS values to get calculated prices, there are times when it is appropriate to use some value other than the calculated values. In Toolkit, the calculated values are displayed but crossed out, and the adjusted value shown. I would prfer that action, rather than showing only the adjusted value. If I adjust a price, I still want to be able to see the calculated value I adjusted from.13 votes
Add a low price reference of 80% of the current price.
in the popup where low price is selected, add another value that is 80% of the current price.12 votes
Show Removed Outlier Data Point(s) on Graph

Add SSG summary boxes on Page 2 of the SSG to the print copy
We're reviewing the new SSGPlus and like the summary boxes on page 2 (Establihing Risk at a Glance and SSG Results Summary). However, they disappear when printing the final SSG. We believe they are helpful when presenting the results to the club. Any plans these boxes can be retained on the completed SSG?? We see this as a big plus for the SSGplus tool.11 votes
