How can we improve our Stock Selection Guide Tools?

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.

        It seems to me that different programmers developed each of the sections and each independently chose their own color scheme. Otherwise, I find no other reasonable explanation for what seems like random color choices that don't match. Regardless, it's confusing and does not help us as we work through our SSGs, let alone when we are trying to explain them to other members.

        This is an important and fundamental issue in Data Visualization. Color is used for identification, and if the color changes from screen to screen, that important mapping is lost. Every company should have a color, and those colors should be the same from screen to screen.

        We find it very confusing at our meetings to go from screen to screen and have the colors change. Would love to have consistency of color from one screen to another.

        Changing colors has been extremely confusing for our members. It's as if different cmmittees (if you will) have each independently put together their pieces without collaborating with each other.
        Consistency should be an easy thing to do and it will make life so much easier for us. When we review an SSG, the color changes tend to make it difficult and time-consuming to explain what is what An easy fix, I would think, and one that your membership would be appreciative of.

        If you will keep the colors the same as we step through the graphs when comparing the peers it will be less confusing to relate the companies to one another.

        I would add that the company under evaluation should be a very visible color...ie black or another dark color
