      • List the Company Size in Growth Rates section in Stock Comparison Guide.

        I have different growth rate expectations based on revenue; would be nice to have company size listed on SCG.

                  • Allow Portfolio Summary Report to be Printed as Sorted on the Screen

                    I can set up a portfolio to follow, and on the screen I can reorganize the stocks in the portfolio in alphabetical order, but when I go to print the list of the stocks in the Summary Report, they always print in the original order. Allow the Summary Report to print as sorted and shown on the screen.

                    • 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 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.

                                    The trailing twelve months (TTM) EPS is now the default value to populate the ‘Low EPS’ value in the Low Price calculation.
                                    Users may change their preference setting to use the last annual price or may overwrite the TTM EPS value.

                                    • 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).
