Fortune magazine released its annual Fortune 500 list, ranking America's largest corporations by sales. Not surprisingly, Wal-Mart
From the ranking:
The megaretailer knocked ExxonMobil out of the top slot to rule the Fortune 500 again this year. Wal-Mart managed to lift revenues, on top of a big increase in 2008, by attracting bargain-hungry customers from competitors with remodeled stores and inexpensive private-label goods, offering everything from frozen pizza to patio furniture in one stop.
Other companies in the top 10 include Chevron
The remainder of the top 10 list includes Bank of America, ConocoPhillips, AT&T, Ford, JP Morgan, and Hewlett-Packard.
