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%.
Royal Dutch Shell is one of the primary oil supermajors - a group of U.S. and Europe-based big energy multinationals with operations that span almost every corner of the globe.

Royal Dutch Shell is one of the primary oil supermajors - a group of U.S. and Europe-based big energy multinationals with operations that span almost every corner of the globe. The company is fully integrated, meaning it participates in every aspect related to energy – from oil production, to refining and marketing. The Hague, Netherlands-based company, with a dual class structure (RDS.A domiciled in the Netherlands & RDS.B listed in the UK), generates more than $180 billion in annual revenues and produces in excess of 2.4 million barrels per day of oil equivalent. Shell currently churns out liquids and natural gas at a 66/34 ratio. As of the end of 2020, the company likely had proved reserves of approximately 9.1 billion barrels of oil-equivalent.
While the likes of ExxonMobil and Chevron are focusing on the Permian basin to drive growth, Shell’s long-term strategy revolves around liquefied natural gas ('LNG'), considering the secular shift to the cleaner burning fuel for power generation worldwide and in the Asia-Pacific region in particular. The Anglo-Dutch firm bought BG Group for $50 billion in 2016 to become the world’s largest producer and shipper of LNG – the supercooled liquid form of natural gas, which is easier to transport.
Shell is not one of the Dividend Aristocrats known for steady payout growth but boasted of an impressive dividend record. However, the company was forced to slash its quarterly dividend by two-thirds in 2020 - the first cut since World War II - to weather the coronavirus-induced oil price crash and preserve cash. While Shell raised its payout thrice since then to 24 cents, it is still well below the pre-pandemic dividend of 47 cents.
Shell divides its operations into four main segments: Upstream (exploration & production), Oil Products (refining), Chemicals and Integrated Gas (LNG). Europe's largest oil company also has a nascent ‘New Energies’ division to build on renewable projects.
Shell has accumulated a huge amount of debt to fund the BG acquisition. The company currently has more than $95 billion in debt (including short-term debt). However, management is looking to drive gearing down through extensive asset divestments.
