I just read the Rule Breakers, Rule Makers book and I stopped by the fool to check out what exactly was in the Rule Breaker portfolio. I was wondering if anyone can answer this question for me, why are AT&T and Exxon in a rule breaking portfolio? Is it because both officially were part of bigger companies that broke the antitrust rules and had to be broken up? Ma Bell and a former Standard Oil Component are hardly companies that pop into my head when I try to think of "Rule Breakers". I'm also wondering about the inclusion of Dupont and Int'l Paper but since I'm not very familiar with either company I won't make an issue of them.
