  1. Have only one ticker input field for all studies, like in Toolkit.

    It would be simpler to have only one field for ticker input, that would either pull up all studies in database with that ticker, or allow data input for a new study, as is done in Toolkit. If we are in a portfolio and want to look at a stock that is in the database but not in this portfolio, it is now necessary to go back to "all portfolios" to find the study. The current design is very unwieldy, and an unnecessary inconvenience.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. I would like to see options to the first or third page of the SSG PRO graph lines that would display over time the Stock Price/ Sales ratio.

    I recommend graphs be added to the SSG's to show , over time, the flow of the following ratios: Stock Price/Sales (P/S), Stock Price/Free cash flow (P/FCF) or (P/CF), and Debit/Equity. Plotting these points would help materially in selecting quality stocks.

  7. Add button to delete multiple (or all) sets of saved SCG

    I use SCG's a lot. Over time I have dozens of old SCG's that I no longer want to keep. It is a pain to delete one at a time.

  9. Enable the TK6 library feature

    It's very handy to be able to switch to another library. I have one called "junk" where I don't worry about creating quality SSGs. I have two others for my club and my personal SSGs. I can do TK challenges on the last two without worrying so much about corrupting my results. If I get another vote, I'll vote to add the challenger.

  10. Enter Share growth as an annual growth rate in preferred procedure

    Entering Shares Outstanding in the Preferred Procedure would be better if I could enter an annual growth rate instead of having to manually calculate 5 years of growing shares. Additionally, it would be nice if the Shares Outstanding growth rate was calculated instead of just displaying the share count.

  12. Ability to create a portfolio only from the ticker symbol and not have to create an SSG first, then ability to see mini SSG like in Screener

    I'd like to be able to import a list of tickers, or just add a list of tickers manually into a portfolio. Then, have ability to see the section 1 graph like in the screener. (When in SSG graph preview, would like to scroll through all the stocks. Not close the graph, move to next stock to look at graph.) This would be helpful when I a get a list of "best stock ideas" from other places. Or as a volunteer if I am doing a club portfolio review.

  13. Make labels more descriptive

    It would be helpful if some of the labels were updated to make them more descriptive, so we don't have to guess or reverse engineer the numbers to figure them out.

    For example: in the Fundamental Company Data section, user has no way of knowing just by looking at the table if the column labeled "Forecast (%)" is an annual forecast or is it the forecast for 5 years in total?

    In section 3, it says "High this year" and "Low this year". Does that mean the calendar year, or is it a TTM time period? (plus it would be…

  14. When entering a ticker for a study all studies with that ticker should be on top of the popup list

    After I input a ticker into the box, from quick navigation, all existing studies for that ticker should be displayed at the top of the drop down list. that way if there is an existing study I may want to utilize I can make that choice at that time.

  15. PERT mouse-over popups

    • On the PERT report use mouse-over popup help text to describe each column header and it's derivation eg when mousing over 'Proj RV' - popup 'Projected Relative Value = Proj PE / Avg PE (Projected)'

    • On PERT report, when hovering over a colored cell use popup help text to describe the condition that triggered the colorization event.

  16. Add a projected sales growth column to the SSGPlus PERT

    It would be helpful to have a new column for projected sales growth in the PERT. This would make it easier to compare the last reported quarter's "Sales % Change" column against each company's projected sales growth rate (as entered on the SSG). The PERT already has this capability for actual quarterly YOY and forecasted EPS growth rates.

  17. 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.

  18. Link Research Tab Items to videos describing/explaining their use

    The Research Tab on the SSG is a gold mine of information.
    Often, there are either Stock Up or Ticker Talk videos that explain how to use those Research Tabs.

    Unfortunately, many times I can't find/remember where the videos are that explain how to use some of the Research Tab features. It would be very helpful to have a hyperlink on the Research tab item that links it to the latest video that explains how to use it.

    Ann and Ken could also use the absence of a linkage to identify candidates for future Ticker Talk/Stock Up subjects.

  19. Save featured list

    I ran a screen and then reviewed each screen item using the preview option. On the ones I was interested in, I selected "Save to filter list" (see screenshot immediately below). Next, I opened the filtered list (see second screenshot "Show Filtered Items" below in green).

    Based on the online training videos I watched, I think "Show Filtered Items" below in green is fairly new. I really like the feature, but would like to be able to save my filtered list for viewing later. Is there a way to do this?

  20. Add a separate "My First Cut" tab formatted with First Cut questions that can be shared along with an SSG

    The SSG is a multiple choice, fill in the blank form without explanations. The First Cut provides supportive information on your rational - an essay to support your selections in the SSG. This tab would not need to have repetitive information like the header info of the current FC but offer an opportunity for explaining the "why" questions supporting SSG decisions. Sharing this with clubs along with your SSG would help them understand your judgments.
