About the Zacks Rank

Since 1988, the Zacks Rank has proven that "Earnings estimate revisions are
the most powerful force impacting stock prices." Since inception in 1988, #1
Rank Stocks have generated an average annual return of +28%. During the
2000-2002 bear market, Zacks #1 Rank stocks gained +43.8%, while the S&P 500
tumbled -37.6%. Also note that the Zacks Rank system has just as many Strong
Sell recommendations (Rank #5) as Strong Buy recommendations (Rank #1). Since
1988, Zacks Rank #5 stocks have significantly underperformed the S&P 500 (2.8%
versus +9.7%). Thus, the Zacks Rank system allows investors to truly manage
portfolio trading effectively.
