Giving investors the top growth stocks in the market

Motley Fool Rule Breakers gives its subscribers two stocks each and every month that David believes offer the best potential for long-term market-crushing performance. David's team of analysts uses time-tested proprietary methods to identify the high-growth stocks that have what it takes to stand out among their peers. The goal that Rule Breakers has is to find the small companies that have innovative competitive advantages that will eventually allow them to catch up to and surpass their larger rivals in their industries. By the time they take over leadership positions in the business community, they've typically already delivered life-changing wealth to their earliest investors.

One of the biggest benefits of Motley Fool Rule Breakers is that subscribers benefit from David's experience in finding promising companies early on in their corporate histories. Rule Breakers picks also feature David's proprietary risk-rating tool, allowing investors to choose recommendations that fit with their overall tolerance for volatility.

The secret of Rule Breakers' success

In particular, Motley Fool Rule Breakers follows several core guidelines in selecting its recommendations. David's team follows six investing criteria to identify rule-breaking stocks, looking for companies that are first-movers in emerging industries that have sustainable advantages in the form of visionary leadership, intellectual property, and strong business momentum. The service prefers stocks that already have a track record of successful stock performance, and good management teams are a valuable asset. Appealing products for consumers are a plus, as they can help build up a brand into a powerhouse in the marketplace. Lastly, Rule Breakers likes taking a contrarian approach, picking stocks that many market commentators think are overvalued.

Looking at some of the best performers from Rule Breakers throughout its history shows how this philosophy works in action. Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) has been an extremely strong performer for members, producing returns of more than 1,900% since its late-2006 recommendation. The emerging-market online search giant took full advantage of the Chinese internet boom, and having demonstrated its superiority in online search, Baidu has sought to extend its reach more broadly over the tech space. Competition has stepped up in China, but Baidu remains well-placed to outpace its rivals and maintain its growth potential.

Closer to home, Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) has also been a key winner for Rule Breakers members, producing returns of more than 1,325% since early 2005. The pioneer in robotic surgical equipment has dramatically broadened the range of surgical procedures that its daVinci systems can perform, including hernia repairs and colon and long resections. Rising cash levels and ongoing high growth prospects show the fundamental success that Intuitive Surgical continues to enjoy.
