Columbus, Ind.-based engine maker Cummins Inc. topped the list of the 25 Best Companies in America compiled by The Motley Fool, a leading website for investors.
According to a press release, more than 1,700 publicly-traded companies were put through a rigorous process of analysis by The Motley Fool. Each company was evaluated for its success in serving investors, customers, employees, and the world at large.
The 25 highest-rated companies included well-known consumer names and tech companies along with lesser-known companies.
Senior Analyst John Reeves, who helped oversee the creation of the 25 Best Companies List, noted, “Too many ‘Best of’ lists look at just one factor, such as workplace satisfaction or stock returns. Our methodology is broader in scope and looks at multiple factors that make a company great.
“At The Motley Fool, we believe the companies that effectively serve all of their stakeholders’ customers, shareholders, employees and the world are not only outstanding companies, but possibly great investments as well.”
