      I have not seen a reply to this post, so I will offer a comment.  
Consider the following: 

fa <- RSiteSearch.function("fundamental analysis")

      This returned 19 matches in 9 different packages, none of which 
seemed to be related to finance. 

      Also, the character string "fundamental analysis" does not appear 
in Wuertz, et al. (2009) Portfolio Optimization with R/Rmetrics 

      I got four hits in the Quantlib documentation 
(http://quantlib.org/reference/index.html).  Quantlib is C++, but R code 
could be written to connect to portions of Quantlib not already included 
in the RQuantLib package.  If you want to write such, I suggest you 
contact the RQuantLib author and maintainer, Dirk Eddelbuettel.  The 
RQuantLib documentation says, "Further software contributions are 
welcome."  [help(package=RQuantLib) and 

      Hope this helps.
