At the center of everything we do is a strong commitment to independent research and sharing its profitable discoveries with investors. This dedication to giving investors a trading advantage led to the creation of our proven Zacks Rank stock-rating system. Since 1986 it has nearly tripled the S&P 500 with an average gain of +26% per year. These returns cover a period from 1986-2011 and were audited and attested by Baker Tilly, an independent accounting firm.<br /><br />We were founded by Len Zacks, whose life's work has been to help investors find success. In 1978, armed with his PhD from MIT, he hit upon a key discovery:<i> Earnings estimate revisions are the most powerful force impacting stock prices.</i> <br /><br />With this crucial finding, he developed the Zacks Rank to harness the power of earnings estimates. Note this quantitative stock-rating system is purely mathematical. We're not influenced by Wall Street or some agenda to determine the ratings. So you can use this stock-selection tool to trade with confidence and accomplish your financial goals. <br /><br />Today, we're characterized by a team of experts who are passionate about your investing success. And everyone is focused on sharing the same reliable investment research they would want for themselves. <br /><br />This has brought us to other breakthroughs such as:<br /><br /><b>Price Response Indicator:</b> Shows what a stock price is likely to do after an earnings report.<br /><br /><b>Most Accurate Estimate:</b> Knowing the earnings consensus for a stock is nice. Being one of the few that knows the Most Accurate Estimate is even better.<br /><br /><b>Earnings ESP (Expected Surprise Prediction):</b> Determines the likelihood of an earnings surprise <i>BEFORE</i> it's reported.<br /><br /><b>Zacks Equity Research:</b> Professional-grade research that combines quantitative models with insight provided by our equity analysts.<br /><br /><b>Zacks Mutual Fund Rank:</b> Not just focused on past performance, but the likely future success of the fund.<br /><br /><b>Zacks ETF Rank (coming soon).</b><br /><br /><b>And much, much more.</b>
