From the Zacks website (

Zacks Rank:
The Zacks Rank rates stocks in terms of their expected price performance over the next three to six months. The Rank is a quantitative model based on trends in estimate revisions and EPS surprises. Stocks are ranked from 1 to 5, with 1 being the best rank ("strong buy") and 5 being the worst ("strong sell").

Consider purchasing stocks with a Zacks Rank = 1 ("Strong Buy").
During the 19 years, 1979 - 1998, the Zacks Ranked #1 stocks provided an average annual return of 35.1% vs. only 17.4% for the S&P 500. The Zacks Rank is also a key underlying component of many of the portfolios recommended in the Zacks Advisor.
