St. Louis lands nine on new Fortune 500 list
The new Fortune 500 list has been released. Fortune Magazine has released its annual ranking of the top U.S. companies by revenue Monday.
Last year, St. Louis had ten companies on the list. It’s down to nine this year, as Smurfit Stone Container dropped off because it was purchased by Rock-Tenn in 2011. The companies are:
60. Express Scripts
289. Reinsurance Group of America
316. Peabody Energy
451. Graybar Electric
The state of Missouri ranks 16th in the number of Fortune 500 companies this year.
