This is our 10th year of selecting the
400 Best Big Companies in America. Our methodology for choosing the
winners is so stringent that 165 companies from last year’s 400 did not
make the cut for 2008. Not only must companies pass our benchmarks for
financial growth rates and returns, but they must also meet our
approval for their corporate governance, accounting standards and
The list can be sorted by name, 5-year total return, Net Income, and Industry.
