  1. Ability to create a new porfolio based upon results of stock search

    I used the search tool to look for Communication Services companies - it would be nice to be able to create a new portfolio of the companies I found by importing into a new portfolio and then work on refining the SSGs once I get them into the new portfolio

    • Traveling Side Bar

      The Command buttons (File Data Print etc.) on the upper right of the form would be much more convenient if they were located on a tab on the right side. A traveling tab such as in the Online Value Line would be fantastic.

      • Separate Notes from the Tools menu

        Please make Notes a top-level menu item and change the word Notes to bold/italic if any notes have been saved, as is done in Toolkit, to remind the user whether notes have been saved.

          • Add sortable columns to Ticker Heat map

            Allow the columns on the ticker heat map to be sortable. If rows are selected or unselected then keep them in that status during the sort process.

              • 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…

                • Notes

                  Large "Note" section so we can copy and paste an article on the company. Also we could paste an URL into the "Notes".

                  • Allow price override and also display calculated value in Section 4

                    In section 4a or 4b, when entering P/E and EPS values to get calculated prices, there are times when it is appropriate to use some value other than the calculated values. In Toolkit, the calculated values are displayed but crossed out, and the adjusted value shown. I would prfer that action, rather than showing only the adjusted value. If I adjust a price, I still want to be able to see the calculated value I adjusted from.

                    • 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.

                      • 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).

                        • Uniform order of the sales and eps columns on all pages/documents

                          Order the sales and eps columns so they are in the same order on SSG side 1, Qtr Trend Rpt and PERT.

                          • 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.

                            • PERT Report Sorting defaults to alphabetical in PDF - an error issue?

                              When creating a PDF document for the PERT, the created version defaults to alphebatical sorting rather than keeping the sort order chosen. The attached file was created with sorting on the UD ratio but that sort did not remain. I'm looking at this as an error reporting issue rather than a suggestion as I feel like it may be an oversight.
