I use the ASX web site on a daily basis to look at all company announcements. You can view the current day or search by company. I particularly pay attention to S205 notices which shows the buying and selling of director's holdings. The announcements also have the financial reports but not in a report format.

To look at a copy of the Annual Report I would suggest the particular company web site. The research part of the Comsec site also has every announcement in PDF format which is very handy at times.

The other approach you might want to take is get the Annual Reports of the listed investment companies such as Argo, AFIC, AUI, DUI, Mirrabooka, Djerriwah, Milton, Sylvastate, Whitefield, Huntley, Platinum and look at how they structure their portfolios. What I particularly look for is any substantial movements in their holdings between the years which might offer ideas (or warnings).

Another investor I forgot to mention before is Anton Tag.... who used to be the investment manager at Perpetual and now runs his own company. You can see what he is up to via the Sandhurst Industrial Share Fund which has its own web site (www.sandhursttrustees.com.au I think) and he writes a monthly report and lists his top 10 holdings. I find the fees he charges a bit high but he has a good track record.
