About Zacks Investment Research
Zacks Investment Research was formed in 1978 by Leonard Zacks. As a PhD from M.I.T., Len believed he could find patterns in stock market data that would lead to superior investment results. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of earnings surprises as a predictive tool throughout the world of equity investing, leading to his proprietary stock-picking system, the Zacks Rank.
Since 1988, the Zacks Rank has nearly tripled the S&P 500 with an average gain of +26% per year. These returns cover a period from 1988 through 2013 and were examined and verified by Baker Tilly, an independent accounting firm.
