Concerning your Research Report No 1 Combining Fundamental and Technical Analysis (No longer published, but now incorporated in my Seminar Notes under Stock Selection - Colin): There exists a plethora of textbooks on the practice and application of fundamental analysis and a huge amount of data, much being available from the internet, on every listed company in the world and so by now one would have thought that there has been ample time for research to have been completed, with the results being already in the public domain. Perhaps this does exist, but not for the Australian market?

You are right and there is a lot out there. Much of it is based on analysis of fund managers who have consistently applied the value approach. O'Shaughnessy has written three books that are based on statistical analysis over long periods. Dreman has written a couple based on PEs only that was well researched statistically. It goes on and on. It is out there i books and journals and research papers already.
