Growth & Income – Occidental Petroleum Corp. (OXY)

Value – Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (GT)
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (GT - Analyst Report) recently posted its best quarterly sales in the company's 113-year history. This Zacks #1 Rank (strong buy) is expected to post triple digit earnings growth in 2011. It's also dirt cheap, with a forward P/E of just 6.4.
Underlying the four free stock picks is a simple truth that first appeared in a Financial Analysts Journal article published in 1979. Leonard Zacks, a Ph.D. from M.I.T. found that "earnings estimate revisions are the most powerful force impacting stock prices." Zacks #1 Rank is awarded to a stock when analysts sharply upgrade their estimates of what the company will earn.
