Zacks Quant Lab applications are designed to work seamlessly with whatever data set you have – Zacks data, proprietary/custom data or third party data.

Choose the Best Software Package Based on Your Needs:


Zacks Screener/Reporter is our base level screening and report writing software that filters stocks based on any given set of criteria – lowest P/E within a given sector, for example – and generates reports for any given list of stocks. Any ticker list or screen can be used as a starting point, which allows users to choose from their own universe of pre-defined stocks.

Rank Analysis

Backtest new strategies, or enhance existing ones, with powerful software designed to reveal which metrics are likely to yield the best returns. Rank Analysis is used to assess the correlation between variables. For example, users can quantify the relationship between the P/E ratio and stocks’ holding period return, or price-to-book ratio by sector and holding period return.

DBM Power

Our data warehousing software has been a client solution for custom database creation, modification and maintenance for over 20 years. It’s easily adaptable to suit any quantitative environment and critical for backtesting and model building.

Use DBM Power for model building; group averages/medians; group weighted average; moving averages; regression analysis and more. You can also create conditional items, i.e., “if the stock is in the Utility sector, then exclude from the average.”


“Optimization” does exactly what it says: it lets you push the envelope to pursue the optimum balance of a portfolio’s risk and return characteristics. Zacks has partnered with Infanger Investment Technology, LLC, to incorporate advanced methodologies into our optimization software. Select the combination that seeks the lowest attainable risk for a given return, or the highest attainable return for a given level of risk.
