  1. outliner in section 3 column d and e - Price Earning Ratio outliners. Its looks like a blank cell.

    Outliner on section 3 columns
    D and E Price Earning Ratio.
    In Adobe Reader, you can see a faint number in the cell if it is a outliner, but when you print, it looks like a blank cell. I looked again in bright sunlight and I can see then it was not a blank cell. I think the color need to be 1 or 2 shades of gray brighter, or can we have a outliner line across the cell with the P/E data. It took extra time to go back to find the number during our club discussion.

      • Add the 52 week High and Low PE to Section 3 Price Row.

        The current wording 'High This Year and Low This Year should also be retitled to 52 Week High and Low respectively.

        • Enter Share growth as an annual growth rate in preferred procedure

          Entering Shares Outstanding in the Preferred Procedure would be better if I could enter an annual growth rate instead of having to manually calculate 5 years of growing shares. Additionally, it would be nice if the Shares Outstanding growth rate was calculated instead of just displaying the share count.

          • Include a Stock Comparison Guide Report

            Replace many of the P/E lines with the ratios that are currently choices in the user choice lines. Add a return on capital ratio.

              • Add the ability to import portfolio data from Folio Investing portfolios

                For those of us who use Folio Investing as a brokerage, having the ability to import portfolio data (portfolio name, security info, number of shares) would provide a convenient way to keep data between the BI Online Tools and Folio in sync and eliminate manual input of data.

                • Allow outliers to be chosen in the Peer graph display

                  Allowing outliers to be selected in the peer graph display will allow the graph to rescale based on displayed data and will recalculate the growth rates/averages that are displayed.

                  • Add a screener option to find up, straight, and parallel companies.

                    The mantra of BI is to find up, straight, and parallel companies. The screener should have an option to find these companies.

                    • Incorporate/Integrate Stock Research Form into SSG so judgments,and date automatically transfer

                      Incorporate /integrate Stock Research From with SSG so that the Stock Research Form is automatically populated by judgments you make on the SSG. This would be similar to what happens in Turbo Tax Software's Step-By-Step Program feature. It asks you questions and based on your answer the 1040 Form is filled in. For example, the highest /lowest and average PEs could easily be transferred to the Form after that judgment is made.

                      I am raising this because i find it cumbersome and inefficient to be switching back and forth between the SSG(internet) and the Stock Research Form(offline word document). If…

                      • Enable the TK6 library feature

                        It's very handy to be able to switch to another library. I have one called "junk" where I don't worry about creating quality SSGs. I have two others for my club and my personal SSGs. I can do TK challenges on the last two without worrying so much about corrupting my results. If I get another vote, I'll vote to add the challenger.

                          • Match target return to company size automatically and also provide a way to override the values.

                            Instead of using a 15% target return for every stock, reduce the target return to the level appropriate to the company size. A medium size company would have a target return of 12%, etc. This might help newbies realize that 15% growth is not necessarily realistic for large companies. Also, could help get users looking at the return of their entire porfolio.
