duhon Semi-strong says that the market's are efficiently priced based on all public information (technical and fundamental tools). P/E information is available on all stocks. Thus, if C were true, one could gain from public information.

lquiroz92 Fundamental analysis is about future earnings, do why is B wrong?
edrei7 Signals (patterns, spikes, etc.) are used in technical analyses. Fundamental analyses are not dependent on signals, they are dependent on finding the intrinsic value of the stock by looking at future cash flows to the entity (DCF, etc.) with the financial statements as inputs with future assumptions.
