The corporations deemed to be “Most Admired” by Fortune Magazine this year included two locally-based companies – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Tyson Foods.

Wal-Mart ranked No. 38 on the list cracking the top 50 again this year, but it dropped from the No. 28 ranking it held last year. Wal-Mart’s retail competitors Amazon and Costco each ranked higher at No. 4 and No. 16, respectively

Tyson Foods did not make the top 50 list, but it did rank in the top 5 at No. 4 for its respective category – food production. Tyson Foods' competitor Sanderson Farms ranked below Tyson for food processors at No. 6.
