The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

John and David are looking for transformational companies for their 10-Bagger real-money portfolio. These companies might be ones that are creating disruptive technologies or ones that are changing themselves or the world for the better. David feels that Jive Software and Netflix are two examples of transformational companies. And MAKO Surgical, which is already a holding of the 10-Bagger portfolio, is another great example. This type of company can be risky. But devoting a portion of your portfolio to game-changing companies can be a very rewarding strategy.

John and David both feel that LinkedIn is yet another potential transformational company.
