I would think they would be highly admired just about everywhere. There is strong desire for their products worldwide. The only problem is price in many areas, but people still like and desire the products.

No, they're on the top "I paid $500 to stand in a line for 40 minutes in 90 degree heat, so I can sit on a ride for 4 minutes, that dumps into a gift shop" list...

Starbucks is the 5th 'most admired' company? I guess this is a US only list.

FedEx, really? UPS may not be as "sexy" but they are the workhorse there. Great company IMHO. 20 pounds 4 days ground NY to LA for about $14.00!

I was wondering how this was compiled and determined since the top 10 is all US companies.

And if it's at all fragile or breakable, it will be (broken that is). Fedex will kick UPSes a$$ any time.

I love seeing the big stickers for overweight items that require two people to lift being delivered by one person (typically with smashed corners, etc).

I can't think of any company that wouldn't want to be compared to Apple... they are the success story of the early 21st century.

Oh yes, indeed. Starbucks might be successful ...but admired? Worldwide? (They can't have noticed all the demos and boycotts here then! )

I agree, they may be admired or sexy, but at least UPS gets the package to the right place. I have had more than 2 issues in the last year, with a new one. Two weeks ago had a delivery tag on my door requiring a signature. Funny, I hadn't ordered anything, they were supposed to attempt delivery next day, never showed, and that tracking number is still in 'limbo'. I feel sorry for who was supposed to get that package.

Yeah for Apple, Hope they keep it up!

Now how many people do you know who use recent Apple products daily? Who buy new ones at launch?

Google mostly make niche products that aren't necessarily bad, but still niche products for a reason or another. Most of their income comes from services, mostly targeted ads with information mined from services like web search, maps, gmail, youtube etc. which haven't significantly evolved recently.
It's because google pushes the envelope and some/most of their projects aren't geared towards mass-market adoption (yet). Not a lot of companies are willing to innovate crazy products like this so I applaud Google for being one of the few. Kind of reminds me of the iPod, iPhone, and iPad with Apple -- these products came before their time. I see a similar thing happening with some of googles innovations such as self-driving cars.

It definitely favors US companies. First, the pool of companies to choose from are 1000 largest US companies and 500 largest worldwide companies. Second, they don't detail who the respondents are, but if they are Fortune readers, they would be a majority US.

Try reading the article. This is not a survey of the public...

"The ranking is based on*a large-scale poll of corporate executives, directors, and industry analysts who were asked to rank companies by*nine key attributes:"

So your comment about brand recognition and marketing show your troll to be a fail. This is a survey of professionals and what they think about other companies, their peers and competitors.

Apparently you missed the fact that this was not a survey of the public.

Apple haters always trying to take exception to positive survey results.

I do question how these are derived though.

Pure speculation, or some degree of knowledge. What they're measuring
"Innovation, People management, Use of corporate assets, Social responsibility, Quality of management, Financial soundness, Long-term investment, Quality of products/services and Global competitiveness"
are many things I'm not quite sure can really be sensibly done by an outsider.

Incorrect Numbering

The numbering is wrong for the ratings. If you sort by rating, you would get:

1 Apple 8.24
2 Google 8.01
3 Starbucks 7.94
4 Disney 7.84
5 IBM 7.37
6 Coca-Cola 7.32
7 Amazon.com 7.28
8 Berkshire Hathaway 7.18
9 Fedex 7
10 Southwest 5.52

It also seems surprising that there's nothing between 7 and 5.52.

Not defending or attacking anyone (much less a company), but it still #35 out of how many companies in the world?

It's like the saying that goes "you don't win silver, you loose gold"... you're still #2 out of 7 billion people...

EDIT: what is more impressive, imho, is the ratio of US companies vs "outside US", and I say that as a Canadian.
