    The earnings (EPS) that are used in the tools and stock data service are ‘Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations’.

    There are the earnings from the GAAP definition of continuing operations divided by the common shares outstanding adjusted for the assumed conversion of all potentially dilutive securities. Securities having a dilutive effect may include convertible debentures, warrants, options, and convertible preferred stock.

    These earnings are traceable back to the company’s official filing (10-Q, 10-K, 20-F) on the SEC website at http://www.sec.gov

    Other financial resources may present different variations on earnings.

  2. Stock Ideas List not accessible from Home

    The Stock Ideas List is accessible from the SSG, SCG Screens. Why not also from Home? After I've logged in, why do I have to go from Home into an SSG or SCG, or some other screen first, in order to get to the magnifying glass link to do a Stock Search?
    Why not include it in the On-line Tools block on the right side of the Home page? Don't think it would clutter up the block all that much more.

  3. Company search add checkbox

    I’m looking at the Company Search section (via Core/Plus SSG), and I wish there was a checkbox or something on each stock when I’m going thru the Data Preview popup, for selecting out items I might be interested in looking further into - narrowing the list, as it were.
    Yes, I can write down the ticker of each interesting stock, but if I could checkbox each one, and then only Company Search look at those, and refine the list further (by unchecking some), would sure be helpful.
    Not sure how persistent I would want the checkboxes to be, wouldn’t want…

  6. Include Ticker in web page title/browser tab

    Include the ticker in the web page title so it shows in the browser tab.
    This will help the user differentiate between open studies in their browser.

  7. Consistency on numbers for R2 on Stock Comparison Guide SCG

    The Industry Average for R2 on the Stock Comparison Guide shows as a percentage rather than decimal. I'm assuming that 27.3% for an R2 is equivalent to .273.

  9. Mini Graph - Report company name not just ticker & Company Description

    Would like the mini graph to show the company name and allow the company description to open up when you hover over the company name.

  10. Quarterly Data

    Limit the Quarterly Data X-axis scale to 50% so the plots will not be compressed, making judgements near 10% data difficult.

  12. Consistency in Data Updates

    The update for data and prices should be in the same order on the "Refresh Portfolio" dialog box on the Portfolio page and the "Refresh Data From Data Service" dialog box on the SSG. Please see attached .pdf.

  13. Allowing locking of data on an SSG.

    Allowing locking of data on an SSG to prevent accidental updates if more than 1 SSG on a company. Some keep a separate SSG for each addl buy of a co. Locking would prevent accidental updating of that SSG.

    User entered data is now locked on a row-by-row basis.
    We advise that all ‘non-changed’ data is kept unlocked so it is automatically updated (upon a user initiated refresh/update) in the case of a stock split.

  15. 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.

    Users have the ability to share a Stock Comparison Guide (SCG) by clicking on the ‘Share’ menu item and then selecting recipients. Upon accepting the share, the recipients will receive a copy of the SCG as well as the supporting studies for the SCG.

  17. 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.

  20. 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…
