  1. Add Defense and Offense Reports

    TK 6 had the Defense and Offense Reports. My new club is using SSG Plus, and I am greatly missing those D&O reports. Defense used to be particularly helpful in keeping us honest on our chartings, as it showed how earnings etc did vs. how we charted - could see trends for over optimisim by some of us etc.

  2. 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?

  3. Add labels 'R','S','T' to quarterly data columns

    Add letter labels to the columns to make it easier to direct people's attention to the proper column.

  4. Allow outliers in quarterly trend graph

    Using INGN as an example, it had the 3/15 quarter with 3000% EPS growth. Changing to Last 5 years, did not impact graph. Limit growth to 50% jshowed sales trend better but most of EPS cut off as it was above 50%. Current graph options are pretty meaningless for this stock. Having ability to quickly exclude that quarter would be helpful.

  5. 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.

  6. Adding to the Notes section of SSG

    would like to use snipping tool or directing paste in a excel or work table into the notes. I like to show what other analyst are estimating and caption that info in a spreadsheet. Any possible way to do this

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. Enable Quarterly Data Charting:

    Make better use of the “Quarterly Data” tab. I use it regularly, but it is difficult to spot trends in the data without charting it. Being able to download it into Excel would suit my personal needs. Being able to select the data you want to chart and then click a button and have the chart appear would be great. The ultimate would be to be able to do both.

  14. Re-think Debt to Capital Ratio

    Re-think the use of the Debt to Capital Ratio (D/C). Most members don’t understand what capital is. I have always assumed it is a measure of the financial strength of a company. If that’s the case, the ratio ignores the ability of the company to service its debt and its available cash, equivalents and marketable securities. Either make a strong argument for retaining the ratio, or consider other measures of the financial strength of companies in general. Consider using the Debt to Equity Ratio (D/E) or Interest Coverage (or “Times Interest Earned”) as a means to measure the financial strength…

  15. Number the Vertical Axis and Add Constant Compound Percent Growth Lines to the SSG Plus

    Number the Vertical Axis and Add Constant Compound Percent Growth Lines to the SSG Plus

    Number the vertical log axis and include constant compound growth lines on the visual analysis chart beginning at the origin of the chart and running across the chart.

    • The vertical (log) axis appears to be auto ranging. While that’s understandable, the decision to make it auto ranging carries with it the disadvantages of disguising what the growth rates of companies are. Two companies that look similar on the charts may be growing at significantly different rates.

    • Numbers on the log axis, would enable…

  16. Refresh Buttons: Difference between "Refreshing All Studies/Portfolios" and "Refreshing Individual Studies"

    When the user Refreshes "All Studies" or "Portfolios", locked data is not touched.

    However, when the user Refreshes "Individual Studies" there are two "Overwrite" options and one "Create A Copy" button.

    Is it correct to assume that "Overwrite" means Overwrite....including eliminating/overwriting the Locked data?

    And, when choosing the "Create a Copy", doesn't that also overwrite locked data, update the data.... and create a copy?

    Also: Date Modified column: Gives the date that the user Refreshed either the price or price and data. How can the user tell which companies fundamental data were refreshed? Not all companies release quarterly data on…

  18. 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.

  20. Add a sorting indicator on the PDF copy of the PERT report

    The PDF copy of the PERT report does not indicate what column the report is sorted on, nor the sorting order. Could something be added to a header or footer that shows what column the report is sorted on, and in what order?
