Dear Fellow Investor:

Today I invite you to take matters into your own hands. Learn how to find the best stocks yourself.

Our Zacks Method for Trading program empowers self investors to trade stocks like the pros. Soon you'll move with more confidence and savvy, exploiting both bull and bear markets alike. Without waiting for tips or picks from anyone. At your own pace. In your own home or anywhere you have internet access. No need to attend a single class, workshop, or seminar.

In fact, our Zacks Method more than levels the playing field with professional investors.

It actually gives you a trading advantage over portfolio managers, even the best of them. This edge is based on a simple but profound stock-picking truth that Len Zacks discovered back in 1979: Revisions to earnings estimates are the most powerful force impacting stock prices. Today, this seems perfectly obvious. Soon after analysts upgrade their estimates of a company's earnings, what do you think happens? Its stock price goes up, too.

Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) picks are companies with earnings estimates that have jumped the most. These stocks have beaten the S&P 500 nearly three times over with an average yearly gain of +26%. If you applied the Zacks Method back in 1988, you could have exploded a $10,000 investment into nearly $6 million.

These returns cover a period from 1988 through 2015 and have been examined and attested by Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP,* an independent accounting firm.

How many money managers, brokerage firms, mutual funds, or investment newsletters can substantiate returns like that?

Of course, with all the noise and hype you hear in the media, +26% a year might sound a little quiet to you. But that is nearly 3 TIMES the performance of the S&P 500.

Consider what such gains can mean to you.

If you invested just $10,000 in the S&P 500 in 1988 and rebalanced it monthly, you would have more than $148,000 today. Quite a nice gain.

Now consider this. If you had put that same $10,000 into our Zacks Rank system, it could have compounded to nearly $6 million dollars today.

Learn how to beat the Street

To give you the advantage, Zacks checks earnings estimates issued by 3,000 analysts from 150 brokerage firms. We monitor more than 200,000 reports, looking for changes.

As soon as those changes are discovered, we pass them along to you. They're reflected in each stock's Zacks Rank: #1 Strong Buy, #2 Buy, #3 Hold, #4 Sell, and #5 Strong Sell. This doesn't mean you can profit like the pros. It means you can profit better than the pros.


  1. Earnings estimates go up.
  2. Stock is upgraded by Zacks.
  3. You buy the stock.
  4. Fund managers process info on that same stock through committees and paperwork.
  5. They slowly pour in massive amounts of money.
  6. Stock price goes up.
  7. Earnings estimates go down.
  8. Stock is downgraded by Zacks.
  9. You sell the stock.
  10. Fund managers sell the stock.
  11. Stock price goes down.

The Zacks Method for Trading program gives you an edge over stock fund managers, even the best of them. With it, you can beat them to the punch on stock after stock.

You'll take advantage of the fact that portfolio managers know the power of earnings estimates, too. In fact, many of the big funds and brokerage houses use the Zacks Rank signals. But . . .

You get to the best stocks first

The big funds' financial system is "molasses slow" and that's where big gains can be made. It often takes weeks for fund managers to process the earnings information. Then it takes even more time to pick stocks (often by committee) and move massive amounts of money into them.

In other words, you can beat the big guys at their own game, without tethering yourself to your computer or your telephone. With the Zacks Method, you'll have plenty of time to buy the right stocks before the managers pour in their fund money and make the prices go up. You'll also sell before reduced earnings estimates compel the managers to remove money from the stocks and drive their prices down.

As little as 10 minutes a month

Right now, I'm prepared to make it easy to exploit this advantage over the fund managers. I'll show you everything you need to make yourself a more profitable trader in your own home. And we're not talking about taking a lot of time or doing a lot of work . . .

Once you learn the Zacks Method for Trading, you can apply its principles in as little as 10 minutes a month.
