  2. Link Research Tab Items to videos describing/explaining their use

    The Research Tab on the SSG is a gold mine of information.
    Often, there are either Stock Up or Ticker Talk videos that explain how to use those Research Tabs.

    Unfortunately, many times I can't find/remember where the videos are that explain how to use some of the Research Tab features. It would be very helpful to have a hyperlink on the Research tab item that links it to the latest video that explains how to use it.

    Ann and Ken could also use the absence of a linkage to identify candidates for future Ticker Talk/Stock Up subjects.

  4. Enable searching on zones for completed SSGs so you can quickly identify stocks that have entered buy or sell zones.

    In the display of one’s studies, there’s a column that shows whether or not the SSG is complete. Why not show which zone the stick is in? The answers would be Buy, Hold, Sell, or Incomplete.

  6. Display Pre-Tax Profit on CoreSSG

    Please add the PTP Chart and Line on the CoreSSG. This is fundamental information that helps us determine whether a company is growing.

    The chart should be added between Step 1: Historical Sales and Step 2: Historical Earnings Per Share.

    Then, the PTP Line could be displayed on the Historical Stock Price Review.

    See attached File.

  8. Use Correct Data

    The SSG Plus and Core are pulling incorrect data from Morningstar for Gentex resulting in flawed analyses for the companies.

    One example is that BI and Morningstar report GNTX released dividends of $0.33 per share for 2018. In fact, GNTX posted dividends of $0.44 per share.

    I wonder, how come these basic data are incorrect? What other data are incorrect and resulting in flawed analyses?

    Idea: Create a data quality verification algorithm to ensure your vendors are supplying you with correct inputs so your customers (members) can create correct outputs. I would urge you to remember that a vendor's Garbage…

  9. 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??

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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)

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
