- June 25, 2012
Richmond-based tobacco corporation Altria Group Inc. ranks 69 out of 100 on Barron Magazine’s World’s Most Respected Companies list.
In its annual list, Barron surveys professional money managers about their views of the world’s 100 largest companies based, this year, on stock-market capitalization as of April 13 as determined by Dow Jones Indexes.
In late May and early June, Barrons also elicited responses from 116 investors from across the country about the degree of respect they held for the companies.
The No. 1 company for the second year in a row was Apple, with IBM, McDonalds and Amazon.com coming in next. Altria was not included in last year’s survey.
