I use fundamental data for working out medium-long term trading/holding.
Currently I use Aspect Equity Review (AER) but it is closing down shortly. I screen scrape this solely for my own use.
The AER stock screener is essentially the same as ComSec's Company Search (under Quotes & Research / Quotes) except it has two major differences. AER can save searches and the results are not paginated (divided into groups of 200).
Does anyone know of any broker or service provider who supplies something like ComSec's, but allows searches to be saved and preferably doesn't paginate, like AER?
Or alternately where do you get fundamental data (I'm talking about fully detailed fundamental data, not just a few like P/E, EPS).

I am sure ComSec get this service from Morningstar (who owns AER & Huntley).
Morningstar currently has a pretty fancy portfolio facility, with customisable views, but doesn't operate on the whole market, has no filtering and has a limit of 4 user defined data tables of 35 fields each (and they don't seem to correspond with the AER ones, unlike the ComSec Company Search). You can have ten watchlists and ten portfolios in their portfolio system (each with 200 stocks) so you could cover the whole market, with a bit of stuffing around.
N.B. Already am signed up to Morningstar Premium (from Morningstar, not ComSec), ComSec, Intelligent Investor, Eureka, Colin Nicholson BWTS, BT Wrap.
Aspect Equity Review was a stand-alone company, then bought out some time ago by Huntley, then Huntley was bought out some time ago by Morningstar.
Morningstar announced about 9 months ago they were going to transfer functions of AER to Morningstar Premium, and they did so 6? months ago, except for the stock screener, which they said they would close down as soon as they have developed a new one on Morningstar Premium, but now they have decided to ditch the new one and close the old one, with 2 weeks notice. Would have been good to decide that 9 months ago so I had 9 months to find a new one myself rather than 2 weeks.
