Go for depth whenever possible, extend the data platform to cover more, to make it easier to browse, etc. -- then go for more breadth
Uses Wikinvest as a sanity check after he comes up with his own investment ideas
In a portfolio product, he'd reall want to know when volume for a particular stock changed considerably. Did it go up or down by 10%, 25%?
Similarly, when a companie earnings come out, does it change their standing among the industry from AVG to HIGH, LOW to AVG, etc.
For his portfolio, he really wants forward looking information -- when is the company issuing dividends, when is it issuing guidance, earnings, etc? Also, when's the government issuing data like unemployment, federal funds rate, etc? Wherever possible, chart previous values with the announcement.
Would love to see headlines scrolling at the bottom of the screen
Would love dettachable elements like major indices, self-chosen tickers, news headlines so he can keep widgets on his desktop (he uses two screens, uses interactive brokers for real-time quotes / trades)
Would also like to see comments from top people like Buffett, Roubini re: the economy
