Though I have enjoyed working for Zacks and giving you insight about stocks and the economy, I have accepted an offer with another firm.
When I leave Zacks tomorrow, one of the things that I will take with me is a stronger appreciation of earnings estimate revisions.
As you know, at Zacks, we heavily promote the concept of following earnings estimate revisions. The philosophy is simple, buy when estimates are rising and sell when estimates are falling.
I believe in the power of earnings estimate revisions so much that I specifically discuss them in a book on investing which I am writing.
However, you do not have to wait for my book to find out how to harness the power of earnings estimate revisions. Steve Reitmeister (who will take over as Editor for this newsletter) has a great video explaining how to use them to your advantage.
