Style Scores:

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.

Industry Rank:

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%.

Zacks News

Walmart Inc., which removed “Stores” from its name in 2018, has evolved from just being a traditional brick-and-mortar retailer into an omnichannel player. In this regard, acquisitions of Jet.com, Bonobos, Moosejaw and Parcel, partnership with JD.com and Lord and Taylor, and investment in online e-commerce platform Flipkart are noteworthy. These position the company to keep pace with the changing retail ecosystem and stay firm in the presence of rivals like Amazon and Target. Markedly, Walmart’s product offerings include almost everything from grocery to cosmetics, electronics to stationery, home furnishings to health and wellness products, and apparel to entertainment products, to name a few. The company operates as Walmart in the United States (its largest segment), including the 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Its International segment (second largest) operated businesses in 26 countries as of Jan 31, 2019. Apart from United States, Walmart has operations in Argentina, Canada, Chile, China, India, Japan, Mexico, United Kingdom, Africa and Central America. The company operates in Mexico as Walmex, in the U.K. as Asda, in Japan as Seiyu, and in India as Best Price.
