Guess I should have read your 2nd post as well before replying to your first one.
In trying to work out an Oz foolish 4 a problem came up because the selection process was skewed to the banks and listed property companies due to their high % dividends.
I don't know how much maths you want to do or even if the info is available but I would suggest getting around this by using % variation from the index average as a selection criteria. ie property or bank or retail etc index I mean, not 20 leaders or 50 leaders index.

A bank paying 8% is going to be more of a dog than a Listed Property Trust paying 8%.

Hope this helps and hope I'm right but it sounds pretty good to me,pity I'm too lazy to do the maths.
