This was an interesting read. I wonder if peopleís thinking has changed at all in the intervening time period.

A guy called Roger Biggs (not the train robber!) here in Australia was/is big into the IVís, wrote a few self published books about them. Personally, I think they have limitations. I think for your standard form factors like last start finish pos etc the market already has it all accounted for.
As you say, the market may very well have those factors accounted for from the standpoint of not overlooking them or omitting them, but (to me) the usefulness of the IV's is that they allow you to determine not just if the factors have been taken into account, but also whether, in the process of being taken into account, they have been undervalued or overvalued (especially in combination) by the public.
