Fortune creates the list by ranking public and private companies that report annual revenue figures to a government agency. The Fortune 100 ranking is based on the company's total revenue for the corresponding fiscal year. Johnson %26 Johnson: In the latest Fortune rankings, life science giant J%26J ranked 37th on the list of 500 companies. Zoetis: The last pharmaceutical company on the Fortune 500 list is Zoetis, an animal health company, based in New Jersey.
The Fortune 100 list is a subset of the Fortune 500, derived from a list of companies that operate in the United States and are accountable to federal agencies. The Fortune 500 list of 1955 was led by General Motors, a company that held the top position for more than 30 years. Thanks to its two treatments against Covid-19, the vaccine it co-produced with BioNTech and its oral antiviral pill Paxlovid, Pfizer has risen 34 places on this year's list. From 1955 to 1994, the Fortune 100 list (again, a subset of the Fortune 500 list) only included companies in the manufacturing, mining and energy sectors.
Bristol-Myers Squibb: At 138 on the Fortune 500 list, BMS rose seven spots from the previous year. This change added many new companies to the top 100 companies on the Fortune 500 list and also dramatically increased the amount of annual revenue needed to make the prestigious list. The Fortune 500 list does not include foreign companies, although many of the publicly traded companies have significant international operations. The Fortune 100 list is a list of the 100 best companies in the United States within the Fortune 500 list, a list of the 500 largest in the U.
It is also among the 100 best places to work in the United States, thanks to its flexible work plans and pension and profit sharing programs. However, Pfizer's profit percentage fell by 47%, Fortune said, which explains the drop in the ranking. According to Fortune magazine's Fortune 500 rankings, the Fortune 100 are the 100 largest public and private companies in the United States by revenue. However, Fortune published individual sector lists of the top 50 companies in the banking, utilities, insurance, retail and transportation sectors.
On the other hand, Fortune also ranked the company among the top 50 stars on its list of the most admired companies in the world.
