Include Pension liabilities in Financial Statements
I am not sure how easy this would be but it would be nice to see the
Pension deficit for a given stock.
I think a measure of pension deficits and possibly including that in EV calculations would be extremely useful. Also, a figure on the main page for EBITDA would be great, together with projections for this or operating profit as this doesn't usually find its way in and forecasts only focus on EPS and revenues. But this is a great tool - thankyou!
This is being worked on – we’re thinking of adding a ratio of either the total pension obligation or the pension deficits to market cap. We may also include them in the EV calculation – EV calculation. This blogger make a good case for doing it –

make sure the EV calculation is not confusing. Further comments welcome.

What about if a red flag symbol was put next to the Enterprise Value if a company has a pension deficit, and then a hover-over box appears with the pension fund deficit figure.
In addition to this, it would be useful to see a company's operating lease commitments.
