New Jersey - at one point I would have said AT&T.  But now that it's really SBC that's probably not the case anymore.  I'm going to guess big pharma -- Merck or J&J.
 
2014-06-23 10:36:57 AM
RsTFA:  And I'm apparently a good guesser.

Washington State used to be Boeing, then it moved management to Chicago, and everything we do counts for Illinois.

So it'll be either Microsoft or Amazon, unless somehow Weyerhauser gets enough cash for selling old timber stands to the Chinese, which it might.
 
2014-06-23 10:44:23 AM
Doh, Costco. Good for them then.
 
2014-06-23 11:42:10 AM

Diogenes: J&J.


yeah, I think here.  Maybe Novartis.  I don't think Tiffany or Wyndham does enough volume.
 
2014-06-23 12:11:59 PM
Without looking, NJ will be Johnson and Johnson.
 
2014-06-23 12:13:46 PM
I'm American and can't read a map. Someone tell me where New Jersey and Arkansas are.
 
2014-06-23 12:18:49 PM
Maybe after the lawsuits BOA won't be the biggest in N.C.

cig-mkr: Maybe after the lawsuits BOA won't be the biggest in N.C.


Why would their revenue go down due to losses from lawsuits.

Eventually, Berkshire Hathaway will own them all!

Not to split hairs, but I will, Keurig is a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. K-Cups are not environmentally friendly and taste terrible.

I live in Washington, but I didn't guess Costco.

Arrow? Really?

Is there a map for the biggest corporation in each state somewhere? TFA just has a map showing who writes the laws in each state.
 
2014-06-23 01:05:38 PM
In typical fark fashion the link is to a second hand account, reporting on a map published first elsewhere: http://www.broadviewnet.com/blog/2014/06 /largest-companies-by-revenue- billions-in-each-state-map/ , where you can get a state by state list for those that are too small to read.  Also, their copy editor must've corrected their Vermont listing, putting the biggest corporate headquarters in Vermont in Waterbury CT.
 
2014-06-23 01:06:29 PM
Chevron isn't surprising.  OF COURSE the big oil companies are going to have high revenues.
 
2014-06-23 01:21:54 PM
Wow, Costco is bigger than Amazon? Didn't realize that even though I own shares in both.
 
2014-06-23 01:22:14 PM
wal mart, exxon/mobil, gm

...

i would say oregon and nebraska are predictable too.

is there a bigger map?  farkall i can't see what those are for those small northeastern states.  is that Lockheed for maryland?
NH, DE, RI - not a farking clue what those are.  too small.

No.  There isn't a bigger map.  There's a link to a blog post containing the map, but then that blog post's link to a larger map is a failure.

ugh.

Humblebrag.

Interesting.

World's best known brand is NOT the leader in Georgia.  In fact it comes in third.
 
2014-06-23 01:57:11 PM

Tr0mBoNe: Humblebrag.


Meh.  Not like I have a ton of money in either, just two solid companies I respect the management of.

TV's Vinnie: Eventually, Berkshire Hathaway will own them all!


By another standard, they are all Delaware corporations.

the_innkeeper: Arrow? Really?


B2B >> B2C

They supply manufacturers all over the world. They're enormous. Their 2013 revenue was $21.36 billion.
 
2014-06-23 02:52:29 PM
Suprised for Minnesota would have though 3M or Target would be tops here.
 
2014-06-23 02:54:36 PM
Ah. By revenue, not profits. That's how GM beat the pawn brokers in Michigan.
 
2014-06-23 02:54:48 PM

grimlock1972: Suprised for Minnesota would have though 3M or Target would be tops here.


You have no idea just how huge Cargill (and likewise ADM) is.
 
2014-06-23 02:54:57 PM
Apparently my state is dominated by a small, regional healthcare provider. I would have thought that it would be an agricultural company. No wonder my health insurance premiums are so goddamn high.
 
2014-06-23 02:58:31 PM
I would have thought Comcast ruled PA

mod3072: Apparently my state is dominated by a small, regional healthcare provider. I would have thought that it would be an agricultural company. No wonder my health insurance premiums are so goddamn high.


Keep in mind it's skewed by whichever companies are actually headquartered in the state- if you're the HQ for a company, you get the credit for ALL revenue by that company. It's how Missouri ends up having Express Scripts shown even though they aren't the largest employer or make the most revenue in the state.

Lockheed Martin is based in Bethesda, MD, so Maryland gets credit for all their revenue even though they're much more spread out.

In the Iraq, such as. Duh!
 
2014-06-23 03:48:54 PM
That's depressing.

Almost all of them are banks/investment companies or insurance companies.

And people wonder why the US is farked, economically. We don't make anything. We just shuffle money around.
 
2014-06-23 03:58:56 PM
lol @ Alaska.

Don't you dare hint they might be socialists, though.

This is what strikes me, yet they're about as red as you can get outside of the south

Looks like a sideways pair of nuts beneath NY (east coast).

A few red states have institutions that you might not expect.

As example, see: Bank of North Dakota

I'm kinda surprised that McDonalds (Illinois) and Coca Cola (Georgia) don't make it on. Do they only include US profits??
 
2014-06-23 06:47:28 PM
"Johnson Controls" sounds like the first revision of that one Prince song.
 
2014-06-23 06:54:42 PM
I am far less than shocked to see how many healthcare providers are on this map, including Humana for my home state.

I'm sure Fark was just behind Humana for Kentucky, however.
 
2014-06-23 07:04:00 PM
Oh, Maine. Your biggest company is a regional grocery store chain. That's adorable.

Verrai: Oh, Maine. Your biggest company is a regional grocery store chain. That's adorable.


Before Kroger bought them out, Oregon's biggest used to be Fred Meyer's.  They had stores from Alaska to Arizona.

Like I said upthead, people don't seem to grasp just how huge agribusiness is, though I too was surprised that Home Depot is bigger than Coke.

Would you rather Chevron and BP keep it all?

Raw dollar revenue, which is why retailers are represented.
