Zacks Counterstrike Targets Quick Profits from Manipulated Price Drops

You are invited to follow this portfolio's buys and sells in real time for the next 30 days.

Special opportunity ends midnight Sunday.

Special opportunity ends in .


This portfolio tracks quality stocks whose prices have been pushed down by High-Frequency Traders (HFTs). We will help you pursue quick, consistent gains by targeting these stocks as they begin to rebound.

A favorite HFT tactic is to short good stocks, igniting panic sell-offs so they can buy at the bottom. Zacks Counterstrike detects moves caused by computer-driven trading, then jumps on the best companies that are unfairly pushed down. We strike as the rebound begins and look to hold for double-digit gains in mere weeks.

Using Zacks Rank Profit Power

This service applies the timely predictive power of the Zacks Rank to buy and sell decisions. From January 1, 1988 to August 31, 2020 this proven system has more than doubled the S&P 500. The average gain has been +24.5% per year.

From $10,000 to More Than $13 Million

S&P 500 vs. Zacks #1 Rank List Hypothetical Return on 10K Investment: Jan 1, 1988 - Aug 31, 2020
$279,325 S&P 500
 
$13,007,383 Zacks #1
Rank List
The S&P 500 Index is owned and published by McGraw-Hill

Maybe +24.5% per year doesn't sound thrilling, but let's suppose you had invested $10,000 in the S&P 500 in 1988. Rebalancing monthly and not counting fees, you would have more than $275,000 today.

But if you had put that same $10,000 into the Zacks Rank system, it could have compounded to more than $13 million dollars.

Stocks can go up or down for many good reasons. The Zacks Rank is a time-tested way to know which direction price should be going, helping investors take advantage of irrational moves created by high-frequency trading.

High-Frequency Traders (HFTs) fire off massive trades in milliseconds, pummeling down stock prices so they can buy at the bottom. Jeremy Mullin uses his experience, technical analysis and the Zacks Rank system to find opportunity in these seemingly irrational moves. He detects HFT activity early, and targets the best of these unfairly beaten-down stocks as they are coiled for rebound.

That is how this portfolio closed gains like these¹:

  • +70.2% on Spotify Technology SA in 1½ months
  • +35.7% on Zyndex Inc. in 38 days
  • +24.5% on World Wresting Entertainment Inc. in 7 days
