About R&D All-Stars: The CNBC RQ 50

  • The CNBC RQ 50 is a unique list of publicly traded companies that derive the greatest shareholder value from their research and development spending (at a minimum of $100M annually), created in partnership with Washington University in St. Louis professor Anne Marie Knott, inventor of the Research Quotient (RQ). The RQ is calculated based on Professor Knott’s proprietary formula and is designed to help investors know what a company can expect to gain in revenue from an increase in R&D investment.
