The biggest public company in every U.S. State (infographic)


This week we’ve created an infographic showing the biggest public company per U.S. State as of the end of July 2015. The location of the companies’ headquarters determined which state they represented, with the deciding factor being their market capitalization. While some dominating names such as Apple and Microsoft are no surprise, did you know the biggest public company coming out of Colorado was Chipotle? Or how about FedEx taking over Tennessee? See below for the rest of the results, and share the infographic with friends. We’ve also created an interactive table below where you can sort alphabetically by state, company name, and stock symbol. Sort high-to-low market capitalization as well to see who’s sitting pretty on top!
