How can we improve our Stock Selection Guide Tools?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Consistency in Data Updates

      The update for data and prices should be in the same order on the "Refresh Portfolio" dialog box on the Portfolio page and the "Refresh Data From Data Service" dialog box on the SSG. Please see attached .pdf.

      • In determining a low price the "Determine Low Price-Next 5 Years" box pops up. Would like to see this prepopulated with the last 4 quarters

          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 "red line" to show current price in the Data Preview feature of the Screener.

          Would like to know about where the current price is when using the Data Preview feature of the screener.

          • Add 2 columns to the Portfolio Summary Report to display number of shares and total stock value in the portfolio.

            Adding this basic information to the Portfolio Summary Report would make the portfolio "snapshot" more complete and useful to clubs and individuals.

                • In all studies view, bottom right - buttuns print is black background is dark blue -- change print to white.

                  In all studies view, at the bottom right of tool display - there are buttons the print is black but the background is dark blue -- very hard to see -- so change print to white so its easy to see and read.

                  • Make peers display persistently throughout SSG

                    Please make the peer display persistently throughout the SSG so that we do not have to re-select them each time we open the graphs.

                      • Decimal precision: 2 decimals for EPS & Price, 1 for all else

                        Having a higher precision level doesn't make it more accurate. Also send the wrong signal re the accuracy. Follow TK6 lead.

                          Warren Buffett states that when he and Charlie buy common stock for Berkshire they approach the transition as if they are buying into a private business. They look at the economic prospects of the business, the people in charge of running it, and the price they must pay. (see The Essays of Warren Buffett by Lawrence A. Cunningham, Second Edition, p 77) BI does good with teaching about how to in economic prospects and if the price is right, but we need more information on management. How do we research that? Thanks.
