The reputation, research and impact of the Zacks group of companies are all predicated on one simple concept:
When analysts change their earnings estimates, large institutional investors tend to react slowly, and firms like ours have the opportunity to invest before the anticipated stock price movement.
For over 25 years, we have been investing based on the belief that each individual company’s stock price is driven by earnings expectations, and that tracking analysts’ revisions can create the potential for strong returns. As the Zacks name was becoming synonymous with this methodology, Ben Zacks and Mitch Zacks personally designed a suite of funds that would enable investors across the country to seek to profit from it.
The portfolio management team reviews each Zacks fund every day. Led by Mitch Zacks, the firm's primary expert on quantitative investing, they use earnings-based indicators to actively manage the portfolios without being constricted by buy-and-hold conventions.
As an independent firm, we have a steadfast commitment to building and managing portfolios with objectivity and transparency. Our process is driven by data, research and expertise.
Zacks Investment Research, our parent company, is one of the largest independent research providers in the country. The data, rankings and models they produce directly inform our portfolio managers and the funds they maintain.
Zacks funds are built and managed on a clear methodology and an unwavering process. This includes systematically avoiding concept stocks, employing strict risk controls for broad diversification, and making stock selections based on fundamental metrics.
