The Zacks Industry Rank assigns a rating to each of the 254 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 254), which would place it in the top 1% of Zacks Ranked Industries. The industry with the worst average Zacks Rank (254 out of 254) would place in the bottom 1%.
