The Zacks Scorecard is a complimentary set of indicators to use alongside the Zacks Rank. It allows the investor to better focus on the stocks that are the best fit for his or her personal investment style.

We produce five unique ratings, including the Zacks Style Score, which combines the individual style scores into 1 rating:

Zacks Style Score A
Growth Score A
Value Score A
Momentum Score A
Income Score A

Within each Score, stocks are graded into five groups: A, B, C, D and F. As you might remember from your school days, an A, is better than a B; a B is better than a C; a C is better than a D; and a D is better than an F.

As an investor, you want to buy stocks with the highest probability of success. That means you want to buy stocks with a Zacks Rank #1 or #2, Strong Buy or Buy, which also has a score of an A or a B in your personal trading style.
