I thought RB companies were supposed to be superfast growing companies with not too big a market cap. And RM companies were supposed to be established giant companies which are leaders in their field.

By this token I would think AOL would be a RM and JDSU would be a RB, but the Motley Fool has picked the other way round !!

I am just trying to understand the basics here.

thanks


You have to remember that the Foolish Portfolio (predecessor to the RuleBreaker Portfolio bought AOL way back in August of '94. Back then, AOL was the upstart. Now, of course, AOL makes the rules by itself. As far as JDSU, it fit all the RM paramaters and like you I would have classified it more of a RB.

Good Hunting
