For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – November 8, 2011 – Four free stock picks are being made available today on Zacks.com. The industry’s leading independent research firm highlights one Zacks #1 Rank Strong Buy or a Zacks #2 Rank Buy stock for each of the four main styles of investing: Aggressive Growth, Growth & Income, Momentum, and Value.

The four highlighted picks are: Hexcel Corp (HXL), G&K Services, Inc. (), American Railcar Industries, Inc. (ARII) and Corrections Corporation of America (CXW).

Today, Zacks is promoting its ''Buy'' stock recommendations. Four daily picks are offered free. http://at.zacks.com/?id=88

From 1988 through the present – a period that included serious corrections and recessions – the Zacks #1 Rank Stocks have nearly tripled the market with a fully documented average gain of +28% per year.

Here is a summary of today's selected stocks that are now highly rated by Zacks:          

Aggressive Growth – Hexcel Corp (HXL)
Volatility is easy to overcome when there is a great earnings trend. Hexcel, Corp. is a prime example. While shares have their ups and downs, the solid earnings history and upward estimate revisions warrant a deeper look at this Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy).

How to Regularly Access Top Zacks Rank Picks for Free - http://at.zacks.com/?id=7154

Underlying the four free stock picks is a simple truth that first appeared in a Financial Analysts Journal article published in 1979. Leonard Zacks, a Ph.D. from M.I.T. found that "earnings estimate revisions are the most powerful force impacting stock prices."  Zacks #1 Rank is awarded to a stock when analysts sharply upgrade their estimates of what the company will earn.
