Walmart Leads Annual Fortune 500 List

Fortune’s annual Fortune 500 issue is once again upon us. If you enjoy massive corporations, get excited. The leader this year is Walmart, which raked in $469 billion in revenue. Not that this should surprise anyone. Since the Fortune 500 has been published — way back in 1955 — the number one company has always been either Walmart, Exxon Mobil or GM.

Exxon Mobil ($449 billion), Chevron ($233), Phillips 66 ($169) and Berkshire Hathaway ($162) round out the top five.

As far as media companies go, here’s some that made the cut:

  • 66) Walt Disney – $42 billion
  • 91) News Corp. – $33
  • 105) Time Warner – $28
  • 186) CBS – $14
  • 198) Viacom – $13
  • 467) Gannett – $5
