Using Zacks Rank Profit Power

Zacks Rank vs S&P 500 performance chart

Large-Cap Trader applies the timely predictive power of the Zacks Rank to buy and sell decisions. From 1988 through 2016 this proven system has more than doubled the S&P 500. The average gain has been +25% per year.

These returns have been examined and attested by Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP,* an independent accounting firm.

It's worth noting that the Zacks Rank works best with earnings estimates from at least 3 covering analysts, and large-cap stocks have the deepest analyst coverage.
