    Wally World out front again

    Wal-Mart retook the top spot, Berkshire Hathaway made the top five, and Apple grew enormously.

    I am glad to see ExxonMobile in the number two spot. I have a lot cash in Exxon. Their dividend is nice and solid. They are a great blue chip company to invest in. Even though I loathe Wal*Mart, they are also a good blue chip company as well.

    I find it funny that second, third and fourth places all go to oil companies. That is good to see with how little they get in profit.

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    I'm glad to see GM at #7 and Ford at #10, although I would like to see the Blue Oval move up ahead of GM-I'm a loyal Ford customer, and my sister bought a bunch of their stock when it was 50 cents a share.


    It's also good to see CVS doing well-they are slightly more expensive than WalMart or Meijer, but they also are in every neighborhood, no matter how poor it is. They also hire people off the welfare rolls, and give them decent jobs with the prospect of promotion for hard work.

    They enjoy the tax credits for hiring people that are on state benefits.

    I worked for Mobil (no "e" on the end) for several years, so I still have a lot of stock acquired during that time. I buy all my gas at Exxon! :)

    It doesn't really matter.... the Mobil is "silent" when you pronounce ExxonMobil, as "Chrysler" was when it was Daimler Chrysler. :)
