CHICAGO, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zacks Investment Research, Inc. announces that Zecco.com, the financial portal of Zecco Holdings, Inc., has incorporated editorial research articles written by Zacks' staff of managing editors and research analysts for display to retail investors. With a staff of over 70 investment research analysts and editors, Zacks produces over 2,000 articles per month covering recent developments in the economy, equity markets, and over 1,300 individual stocks. Providing more than just recent news, Zacks articles provide concise analytical insight that help investors quickly figure out the real impact of market and industry trends on the stocks they are following. Many of the stocks covered by Zacks are smaller cap equities that otherwise get little or no coverage in the mainstream press.

At the same time, Zacks articles provide actionable information that appeals to the active, self-directed investors who use Zecco," according to Bryant Sheehy, Director of Business Development for Content and Data at Zacks Investment Research, Inc.
"We chose Zacks because of the high quality of its individual stock and market commentary and analysis," said Tony Leach, Vice President of Product Management at Zecco.
