Apple took the top spot in Fortune Magazine’s “America’s Most Admired Companies” ranking for 2008. Google came in at number four and Microsoft made it into the Top 20 at number sixteen.
The Industry Champions list is worth looking at as well. Anheuser-Busch is not only the King of Beers but the King of Beverages. Altria Group is the champion of the tobacco industry. I guess thats a good thing… Two companies with a large presence in Florida made the Industry Champions list. Publix Super Markets took the top spot in the “food and drug stores” category, and FPL Group (Florida Power and Light) took the honors in the “electric and gas utilities” category.
