Screen of the Week written by Kevin Matras of Zacks Investment Research:

I'm sure we've all had the pleasure of waking one morning and seeing that a broker has upgraded one of our stocks. Unfortunately, we've probably all had the experience of waking up and seeing one of our stocks downgraded as well.

While nobody can perfectly predict an upgrade or guard against a downgrade, it's important to know how the market reacts to these things so you can stay in your upgraded winners (or buy if you're on the fence) and consider getting out if a downgrade comes your way.

One thing I've been doing lately is screening for stocks that have recently seen a broker rating upgrade. Tests have proven that stocks with broker rating upgrades outperform those that don't get upgraded. And they really outperform those stocks that get downgraded.

By how much?
