Fortune has a list every year of the most admired companies in the world and for the last fourteen years, Apple has come first place every single year. And today for 2021 Apple has come first place in the “World’s Most Admired Company” list, with second place being taken by Amazon, third place is Microsoft and Disney in fourth place.
Other notable companies are Netflix, coming in at ninth, Coca Cola at number 22, GM at 153 and strangely, Tesla at 294
“After a year in which humanity leaned more heavily than ever on tech giants—to connect, entertain, and even feed us in a time of isolation — it’s fitting that Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft hold the top three spots in Fortune’s ranking of corporate reputation. Apple, the premier personal-tech provider, tops the roster for the 14th year in a row, based on our poll of some 3,800 corporate executives, directors, and analysts.”
It is worth noting that this ranking doesnt take any financial performance or results into account.
