The Style Scores are a complementary set of indicators to use alongside the Zacks Rank. It allows the user to better focus on the stocks that are the best fit for his or her personal trading style.
The scores are based on the trading styles of Value, Growth, and Momentum. There's also a VGM Score ('V' for Value, 'G' for Growth and 'M' for Momentum), which combines the weighted average of the individual style scores into one score.
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.

The Zacks Industry Rank assigns a rating to each of the 265 X (Expanded) Industries based on their average Zacks Rank.
An industry with a larger percentage of Zacks Rank #1's and #2's will have a better average Zacks Rank than one with a larger percentage of Zacks Rank #4's and #5's.
The industry with the best average Zacks Rank would be considered the top industry (1 out of 265), which would place it in the top 1% of Zacks Ranked Industries. The industry with the worst average Zacks Rank (265 out of 265) would place in the bottom 1%.
The original Royal Dutch/Shell Group had resulted from the 1907 alliance between U.K.-based Shell Transport and Trading Company and the Netherlands-based Royal Dutch Petroleum Company, with 40% and 60% stake in the group, respectively.

The unification plan proposed in 2005 by the boards of both the companies was completed in 2006, resulting in one parent company, Royal Dutch Shell plc. Reflecting the 60:40 ownership structure of the group before the unification, Royal Dutch Petroleum Company’s shareholders were given a 60% stake in the new parent company through class A ...
The original Royal Dutch/Shell Group had resulted from the 1907 alliance between U.K.-based Shell Transport and Trading Company and the Netherlands-based Royal Dutch Petroleum Company, with 40% and 60% stake in the group, respectively. However, both companies maintained their separate and distinct identities. The unification plan proposed in 2005 by the boards of both the companies was completed in 2006, resulting in one parent company, Royal Dutch Shell plc. Reflecting the 60:40 ownership structure of the group before the unification, Royal Dutch Petroleum Company’s shareholders were given a 60% stake in the new parent company through class A shares (RDS.A), while the old Shell shareholders were given a 40% stake through class B shares (RDS.B). Royal Dutch Shell divides its operations into four major segments: Upstream (which accounted for 28% of the group’s 2018 adjusted earnings), Downstream (32%), Integrated Gas (40%) and Corporate.
The group’s ‘Upstream’ business finds and extracts oil and natural gas, often in joint ventures with international and national oil companies. In 2018, Royal Dutch Shell’s oil and gas production averaged 2.709 million oil-equivalent barrels per day, of which nearly 59% was liquids. As of year-end 2018, the group had approximately 11.6 billion oil-equivalent barrels in proved reserves.
The ‘Downstream’ unit processes crude oil into a slew of refined products, which are moved and marketed worldwide for domestic, industrial and transport use. As of year-end 2018, the group had a combined refining capacity of approximately 2.8 million barrels per day through interests in 21 refineries worldwide, of which roughly 36% is located in Europe and Africa, 40% in the Americas, and 24% in Asia and Oceania.
Integrated Gas is involved in the transportation and liquefaction of natural gas. The unit is also engaged in converting gas to liquids for supplying fuels and other related products. The segment was created following Shell’s 2016 acquisition of BG Group for $50 billion.
The Corporate segment covers the key support functions, comprising holdings and treasury, headquarters, central functions, and Shell insurance companies.
