Many investors constantly attempt to find investments on the equity securities market that provide stability, as well as profitability, for their capital. Fortunately, Zacks customers can utilize our Premium Screens to search for stocks that provide security on their initial principle.

Large-cap stocks are usually considered less volatile because of their dominant total market capitalization compared to middle and small-cap stocks, and we can use the "Management Excellence Premium Screen" to find large-cap companies that are known to administer their entity successfully.

Companies that exhibit prime management tend to have certain characteristics, such as high RoE, low Debt/Equity, and a high current ratio. Companies that possess strong management are also known to reward their shareholders with increased capital gains and impressive dividends.
