Why have the follish four in this rule breaker portfloio when they aren't rule brekers?
Two reasons that I can see:
1)Stability. Rule Breakers are inherently volatile, so putting in the FF stocks can help dampen down the fluctuations a little, as it is a real money portfolio, not a model as you see in magazines and tip sheets.

2)Responsibility. Despite the regular pleas of Fools for people not to blindly follow the Fool Portfolios, many still do, so by including the FF stocks, those fools (with a small f) who blindly invest are forced to get a bit of diversity of investment styles.

Hope this makes sense.
