  1. Re-name stock search page to 'Stock Ideas' page

    While the Magnifying glass icon link to the page says 'Stock Ideas', the page title doesn't - it's inconsistent.
    Actually there doesn't seem to be a page title, unless it's 'Search for a company'. but that's not really what the page does.
    'Search for a company', 'Search Criteria', etc are good for parts of the page, but 'Stock Ideas' is a better name for the page itself.
    It's even the name of the drop-down category in this feature request section. So maybe that's what the developers call it??

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. On the Portfolio and Studies page, let portfolio view extend across user's screen to reduce scrolling

    On the Portfolio and Studies page, user has to scroll back and forth to view the entire portfolio table. There is a lot of wasted blue space to the left and right of the portfolio view. It would be helpful if the view wasn't fixed to a specific width, but used responsive design to allow it to expand to fit the entire browser window width per the user's own computer and browser width preferences. Because the row headings are fixed, once user scrolls to the right, you don't know what stock you're looking at for the right side columns.

  6. On the Portfolio and Studies page, add column: number of shares

    In the portfolio view on the Portfolio and Studies page, please consider adding a column showing the number of shares for a particular holding. It would make it much easier to replace old SSGs with new ones in an existing portfolio, and check your data, if you could easily see the number of shares for the old SSG. Toolkit does this via a special window.

  7. Add a quick access alpha-bar to the glossary so you don’t have to scroll thru the terms

    Add a quick access alpha-bar to the glossary so we don’t have to scroll thru the terms to find what we need.

    Also, add more margin term — gross, net

  8. Add past 5 years sales growth and EPS percentage where it is visual on page 1.

    Add the past five years sales growth and EPS percentage on page 1. This is important to look at when researching a company. The only place to find it is on the page where you download information to Toolkit.

  9. Portfolio update SSG

    Be able to update Portfolio with new SSG report without having to delete existing from portfolio and then add new SSG (sometimes imported from member following the stock) into the portfolio and reentering shares held. (i.e. Replace SSG abc 1/1/19 with abc 3/1/19)

  10. Screener Preview Data Graph Order

    When you select a column to sort screener results by and then do into Data Preview, the order of the companies remains alphabetical. I'd like the order of companies to be in order of the column I sorted by.

  11. Add revenue ranges to the Size Diversification Report

    The current size definitions for small, medium, and large companies are not easily located. Add a legend to the Size Diversification Report that explains the revenue range for each size.

  12. 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

  13. Highlight data changes

    When data is updated (not stock price) highlight the ticker. Keep that ticker highlight until the user 'clears' the message. That way users are notified when changes are made to data and reminded to review new information.

  14. 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.

  15. Allow more than 5 companies to be compared with the Stock Comparison Guide

    I find limiting the number of stocks to just 5 to be too small. I would like to compare up to about 15 stocks, say our complete stock portfolio.

  16. Allow an SSG from the past to be generated

    I would like to generate an SSG at a point in time in the past. This way we could evaluate our past judgements and see who closely they matched known future results.

  17. 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…

  20. FFO Data for REITs

    REITs (not for clubs, but of interest to individual investors) generally use Funds from Operations (FFO) instead of EPS. Is there any chance of changing the data feed for REITs?
