Chicago, IL, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In today's fast-moving investing world, staying connected with the latest market news and analysis remains as critical as ever to investors. In response to the ever changing investing landscape, Zacks Investment Research, a leading provider of investment-related data, research, and commentary, is excited to announce major improvements to its recently launched mobile application, which is available now on iOS in the App Store ( https://itunes.apple.com/app/apple-store/id731593509?pt=2020671&ct=version3launch-PR&mt=8 ) and on Android on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zacks.androidapp&referrer=utm_source%3Dpress_release%26utm_medium%3Dreferral%26utm_campaign%3Dversion3launch ).

Zacks Mobile App will still feature real-time pricing data from BATS, access to portfolio tracking tools, Zacks Analyst blogs on current company developments, as well as the earnings estimates and revisions that drive the Zacks Rank and breaking news and commentary from their team of in-house industry analysts and equity strategists.

But now, Zacks subscribers can access Zacks proprietary content and all of Zacks Trading Services inside the app. "We are extremely excited about being able to share this new feature with investors," says Michael Lewis, Director Audience Development & Web Analytics at Zacks. With this access, investors interested in a wide variety of strategies and sectors, can see what stocks are in each service portfolio, read daily portfolio commentary and opt-in to receiving real time trade alerts on their phone when trading service editors add or drop stocks from the portfolio they manage. "With our new and improved App, even users outside the US and Canada will be able to get real time trade alerts," says Lewis.

In addition, all users can receive notifications when Zacks publishes new editions of its newsletters, such as its ‘Profit From the Pros', when their favorite Zacks Senior Writers publish new articles, and daily personal portfolio tracker updates.  App users will also benefit from faster content load times and other performance improvements. By downloading the app, investors can ensure that they never miss another market-moving headline or earnings announcement again.

Harnessing the power of earnings estimate revisions, the Zacks Rank stock-rating system has more than doubled the S&P 500 with an average gain of +25% per year from 1988 to 2017. With the Zacks mobile app, investors have the unmatched power of the Zacks Rank at their fingertips.
