Best Way to Profit from a Bear Market

During the Great Recession, the market crashed 56%, destroying $11.2 trillion dollars in assets and a comfortable retirement for millions of Americans.

Yet, a few investors were quietly making money hand-over-fist by shorting certain stocks.

That's where our new computer-driven Zacks Short Sell List comes in. Each week this strategy alerts you to 10 stocks primed to fall much more than the average, making them terrific shorting candidates.

How would this proprietary formula have performed during past bears? Testing shows that while the S&P 500 plummeted -33.8% in 7/2008-3/2009, Zacks' short selling would have gained you +69.3%. From 4/2000-10/2002, while the market dropped -39.5%, you would have gained +159.5%.
