  1. I want to see the ACE numbers, S&E, for the next two years as points on the SSG as well as the ability to add data out to year five.

    In TK we can input data for earnings and sales for the next 5 years. We fill in the ACE numbers from YF for the next two years and if we have a VL we add the numbers for year 5.

  2. Provide capability for clubs to share their SSGs via a club portfolio that all club members can access.

    Two issues: (1) access by all club members (with SSGPlus subscription) to access club's portfolio and (2) individuals in multiple clubs being able to access one single SSG but in multiple, club-designated portfolios.

  3. On the 'Compare Peers' page, legend/graph colors should be consistent from one tab to the next

    When moving from one tab to the next on the comparing peers screen it would be a lot easier if the graphs for each of the peers was always the same color.

  7. Put a line under Section 3 that will give the RV and the Projected PEG (Current PE/ Est EPS Growth Rate).

    Please put a line under the SSG Plus Section 3 that will give the RV calculated as (Current PE/5-Yr Avg PE) and the Projected PEG calculated as (Current PE/ Est EPS Growth Rate). These are very important valuation measures.

    Relative Value according to my old Stock Analyst manuals:
    " Good value is present when the current P/E is less than the historical average P/E ratio. This is measured by dividing the current P/E by the average P/E (x 100) to produce a figure called the Relative Value...This is the best overall measure of the reasonableness of a current P/E multiple...Relative…

  8. Add to Section 3 the Average P/E Ratio, Current P/E Ratio, Relative Value, Projected P/E Ratio, PEGY Ratio, Projected Relative Value

    Add to Section 3 the Average P/E Ratio, Current P/E Ratio, Relative Value, Projected P/E Ratio, PEGY Ratio, Projected Relative Value, TTM EPS, FTM EPS and Avg TTM + FTM EPS similar to Section 3 of Toolkit 6. When using SSGPlus I have to always access my Toolkit 6 program to view these items in TK6 Section 3 as I have not yet found an equivalent in SSGPlus.

  9. 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?

    Toolkit’s intra-day pricing data comes from Yahoo!. We have seen multiple issues with incorrect data from Yahoo and we won’t consider using that service on a new product. Additionally, Yahoo is moving to stop redistribution of the data. Typically, use of the Stock Selection Guide is not so dependent upon daily price fluctuation so this is not a very common request. We’ll take this under advisement and review the costs for adding an intra-day price feed when we next re-quote our data contracts.

  10. We need a computerized glossary for all of the terms on the SSG

    We need an updated reference for the SSG similar to the handbook "Managing Portfolio Wisdom" by Bonnie Biafore but made current. At the moment we have to go to too many places to find info. One shouldn't have to listen to webinars every time they one to verify that they are using the SSG correctly. There needs to be one place with detailed explanations and definitions, both computerized and hard copies, to look things up. Another element of this reference would be a GLOSSARY containing at least all the terms on the SSG and more. This would be much more…

  13. Separate Notes from the Tools menu

    Please make Notes a top-level menu item and change the word Notes to bold/italic if any notes have been saved, as is done in Toolkit, to remind the user whether notes have been saved.
