  1. 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.

            • Be able to set target buy price based on PAR in addition to TR

                                        • Add the ability to remove Pre-tax Profit Margin data (outliers) in the Preferred Procedure window.

                                          In the Preferred Procedure window, it would be nice to be able to identify outliers in the Pre-tax Profit Margin data (from the most recent 5 fiscal years) to quickly calculate a new average. The new average would then appear as the default value for the PTPM in the preferred procedure calculator.
