  2. 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…

  3. Add "Prices current as of xx/xx/xx" to top of section 3

    At the top of Section 3, there is plenty of room on the top line that displays the stock prices. How about adding "Prices current as of: xx/xx/xx". When working on an older study, the original date is shown in the title bar, so it's not necessarily clear that the prices displayed at the top of section 3 are more current than the Study Name/Date.

  4. PERT Report PDF

    If the report extends to more than one page, the headers should be repeated at the top of each page. Also, occasionally when I print a multi-page PERT Report, the last stock on the first page is split in half -- the top half is on one page, the bottom half of the row is on the top of the second page. The report needs to be generated in a way that will prevent this split.

  5. Reports:

    On the report PDFs: The Diversification Report file name includes the PORTFOLIO name. The Summary and PERT do not, but should (as should ALL report PDFs).

  6. PERT problem

    Today Craig Jacobsen and I noticed the Online Portfolio Pert report gave three companies pink flags in sales when the forecast percents were lower than the actual last 1/4 sales. Namely LOW, CMI and FDS. A Toolkit PERT with the same front page forecast had no pink in the sales columns. Perhaps there is a problem with the Online PERT. Check it out if you have time. Thanks.

  7. 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

    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 EPS.

    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.

  8. Allow Portfolio Summary Report to be Printed as Sorted on the Screen

    I can set up a portfolio to follow, and on the screen I can reorganize the stocks in the portfolio in alphabetical order, but when I go to print the list of the stocks in the Summary Report, they always print in the original order. Allow the Summary Report to print as sorted and shown on the screen.

  9. Print Notes from the Note Window

    It would be helpful if the notes could be printed from the note window without having to send them to Microsoft Office Quick Notes or One Note.

    Notes can be printed to a PDF by appending them to the 2 page SSG report as a 3rd page.
    To print the Notes, select ‘Print’ , then click on ‘Append Notes’ and then ‘Generate PDF’ and the notes will become part of the PDF. We are planning a new ‘Notes’ tab (rather than a popup) and will consider how printing would work from that screen.

  10. Stop automatic page reversing

    We have two pages of stocks. When updating EACH file on the second page, file manager auto-reverses to page 1. Very annoying to have to "go back" to page 2 after each one.

  11. 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.

  12. Fix trying to go to Search after wanting to Abandon Study

    When you are in a new study, decide you want to go back to Search and don't want to save the study, it doesn't Abandon. You have to either save the study, or go the Library in order for Abandon to be accepted.

  14. 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.

  15. List the Company Size in Growth Rates section in Stock Comparison Guide.

    I have different growth rate expectations based on revenue; would be nice to have company size listed on SCG.

  16. 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.

  18. Lock the header

    Please lock the header portion of the 'Better Investing sentiment' screen. When we choose all the SSGs in the sentiment screen, it is hard to find which values belong to which column titles.

    Thanks

  19. Add the ability to add Quarterly & Annual data for companies where manual data entry is necessary (Add a Quarter - not just Edit)

    Certain companies have imported data that conflicts with Value Line and/or Yahoo financial data. For these companies it is necessary to manually edit the data. This works. However, as another Quarter is completed, you are unable to add an additional Quarter. I imagine you are also unable to add a Year when the year is complete.
