Winning Stock Picks From The Top 5 Industries With The Biggest Job Growth

This is just one very specific way to do a top-down analysis. But you can go to any screener and locate the sector, then industry of interest.

Then you should add in your favorite and most successful stock-picking criteria to drill down to the best ones, such as Zacks Rank 1s or 2s (Strong Buys or Buys); market-beating growth rates; below industry valuations; upward earnings estimate revisions, etc.

Here are 5 stocks from some of the industries singled out as the biggest job creators in last week's Employment report:

(PAYX - Free Report) Paychex
(Professional & Business Services)

(LXFR - Free Report) Luxfer Holdings
(Manufacturing)

(WCG - Free Report) WellCare Health Plans
(Health Care)

(TAST - Free Report) Carrols Restaurant Group
(Food Services & Drinking Places)

(JEC - Free Report) Jacobs Engineering Group
(Construction)

Profitable stock ideas can come at any time and any place. But instead of waiting for the next great stock to fall into your lap, you can actively search for them. And by reading a few extra reports and then putting those ideas into a capable screener, you'll soon be amazed at some of the new picks you come up with.

And you'll feel pretty smart after finding them too.
