In this guide you will discover the Zacks Rank stock picking system that has proven to be an extremely profitable investment tool. Since 1988, Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks have generated profits nearly three times the level of the overall market: 26% annual gain versus only 10% for the S&P 500.
The Zacks Rank was created by the founder of Zacks Investment Research, Len Zacks. He has a PhD from MIT and worked on Wall Street for a number of years creating models on how to beat the market. After extensive research and testing, Len discovered that:
In a nutshell, when a company''s earnings estimates are revised upwards, the stock''s price tends to rise as well. And when estimates fall, the stock''s price tends to drop. To harness the power of estimate revisions, Len developed the Zacks Rank to clearly alert investors when to buy and when to sell stocks.
