D Value | B Growth | B Momentum | C VGM

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.

Value Score A
Growth Score A
Momentum Score A
VGM 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.

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%.

Top Ranked Momentum Stocks to Buy for November 7th

Here are four stocks with Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and strong momentum characteristics for investors to consider today, November 7th:

VeriSign, Inc. (VRSN)

VeriSign, Inc. (VRSN) recently reported earnings of $0.35 per share in the third quarter of 2011, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.33. In the past few years, VeriSign has considerably streamlined its business to focus on providing, reliable and secure Internet infrastructure services. The disposal of non-core businesses boosted margins while the buyback of shares helped the bottom line.

The company at present has a new management team. Additionally, we think increased domain fees and ICANN's plan to increase the number of generic domain names should positively impact its results. Earnings estimates have increased recently.

Hence, we upgrade our recommendation to Outperform from Neutral. We set a target price of $40.00, which is derived by applying a target P/E multiple of 30.5x to our 2011 EPS estimate.

Software Sector

Generally speaking, a downturn is when investment in IT is most critical because these investments can make operations more efficient. This idea is one reason why we think that the tech sector would weather a downturn better than other parts of the economy. SAP, Fiserv and Intuit offer opportunities.
