Apple has been placed at number one on Forbes’ “Most Admired Companies” list for the eleventh consecutive year.
“Apple topped the list in every category, such as innovation, quality of management, social responsibility, use of corporate assets, financial soundness, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness,” reported Mac Rumors on Friday. “The rankings were determined by some 3,900 executives, directors, and securities analysts who selected the 10 companies they admired most.”
Amazon came second on the list, followed by Alphabet, Berkshire Hathaway, Starbucks, Walt Disney, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, FedEx, and JPMorgan Chase.
Netflix and Facebook came eleventh and twelfth respectively, while Twitter was absent.
On Wednesday, Apple announced that the company will be investing $350 billion into the US economy over the next five years, while in a recent interview, Apple CEO Tim Cook claimed President Trump’s tax plan would result in “greater job creation and a faster growing economy.”
Following President Trump’s tax plan, Apple also pledged to give its employees $2,500 bonuses in the form of stock units.
