  3. The two date columns in the list of stocks should be more informative

    By default, the original date of the study is added to the name of the stock, so there is no need to show it in a separate column. The much more relevant dates are the Most Recent Price and the Judgment Date, which would be the last date in which any of the judgment items are modified. It would also be helpful to see the Most Recent Quarter date. All three of these dates are available and select-able in the Library listing. Let the user select the one or two preferred dates to be displayed.

  4. Quick Navigation should be simplified.

    There should only be one field for entry of the ticker. If the company is in the user's database, it should be listed for selection, as it is now. In addition to the company name, there should also be an optional choice to load a new datafile. Having a separate field for entering the ticker for a new company should be unnecessary.

  5. On the 'Compare Peers' page, legend/graph colors should be consistent from one tab to the next

    When moving from one tab to the next on the comparing peers screen it would be a lot easier if the graphs for each of the peers was always the same color.

  6. Filter-Out Stock Screener Results

    In stock screener results,
    One thing i would like is if we could have ability to filter out (i.e. remove say a particular industry, instead of filtering only for a particular industry)

  7. Create a preset search that looks for stocks meeting George Nicholson's Triple-Play.

    George Nicholson's idea of a Triple-Play was briefly mentioned in the old NAIC handbook. With all the great technology in the online SSG tools, it would be nice to have a preset search that would pull in stocks possibly meeting the three requirements for a Triple-Play. Apparently, the aspects of a T/P are found if one has a Value Line account, and many of us don't, or don't have access via libraries.

  12. Add the ability to evaluate Dow Jones, S&P and NASDAQ averages

    These averages have prices, EPS and dividends. Section 1 plot would not have a sales line but would have EPS line with a projection and price bars. Section 3 would have prices, EPS, P/E ratios, dividends, yields and could have projected highs and lows. We need the ability to evaluate the market as well as individual stocks.

  13. Add a timestamp to the Member Sentiment study date so we can tell if a number of studies were done in a short period of time.

    With a timestamp and the study date, we could see if a number of studies were done at essentialy the same time indicating that they were probably all done by the same person or maybe a lot of studies done after an online presentation like Stock Up or Ticker Talk.

  14. Display the average price for a stock, graphically, and include it on the front page of the SSG along with sales, pretax profits and earning

    In addition, or instead of, having vertical price bars, showing high and low for a given year, show the average price as a graph line. It would be nice to see how the price moved along with the sales, earnings, etc graphically

  16. Timely Stock price data feed

    Currently I can get accurate closing prices and updates using TK but not the SSG+ which is a whole day behind. Can this timeliness be improved?

    Toolkit’s intra-day pricing data comes from Yahoo!. We have seen multiple issues with incorrect data from Yahoo and we won’t consider using that service on a new product. Additionally, Yahoo is moving to stop redistribution of the data. Typically, use of the Stock Selection Guide is not so dependent upon daily price fluctuation so this is not a very common request. We’ll take this under advisement and review the costs for adding an intra-day price feed when we next re-quote our data contracts.

  17. Print Peer Data

    Could you add a print option for the peer graphs? I tried to print the screen but the output showed the graph printed over the SSG so it was unreadable. A printout of some of the peer graphs would be very useful at club meetings.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
