Fellow Investor,

I am offering you my hardbound book, Finding #1 Stocks free, shipping included. It provides most of the secrets behind the Zacks Rank system and, even more importantly…

It leads to the easiest way to put them to work for your own portfolio.

Zacks #1 Rank vs S&P 500

The potential rewards for using this system are considerable. From January 1, 1988 to May 6, 2024, even through three recessions and numerous corrections, Zacks Rank #1 Strong Buy stocks have averaged +24.1% per year.

Think what this can mean. 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 $450,000 today.

But if you had put that same $10,000 into the Zacks Rank system, it could have compounded to more than $25.6 million dollars.

How to Realize Even Greater Gain Potential

One concern for many investors is that at any given time there are 220 Zacks Rank #1 Strong Buys and 660 #2 Buys to choose from.

What if you could easily filter all those stocks down to an investable number of the very best?

Plus, what if you could look at each day's picks from our best market-beating strategies including the ones shown here?

When I came to Zacks back in 2000, I was already a very experienced investor. But learning the Zacks Method gave me a significant new advantage. I know it can do the same for you. But don't take it from me. Here is just one success story shared by John L. from Kirkland, WA:

Zacks journey began when I felt my modest portfolio could perform better if I was armed with more knowledge & insight to the inner workings of the stock market. That's when I decided to try the Zacks Method for Trading Home Study Course. The information contained within was simple yet insightful, technical but not overwhelming and very well presented. Aside from all the knowledge I gained, I also appreciate that I can follow the course at my own pace and on my own time. I also find it helpful to have the ability to review the materials as needed, in order to better understand the concepts and strategies within. Right away I found myself making better stock picking decisions.

From Day One, I know the Zacks Method will change the way you look at investing, just as it did for me and for John.

Thank you and good investing,
