Fortune has published its list of the World's Most Admired Companies for 2020, and Apple has topped the list for the fourteenth year in a row. The company topped the list "based on our poll of some 3,800 corporate executives, directors, and analysts."
The list, as noted by Fortune, experienced some shakeup last year for companies that provided essential services during the pandemic.
The top ten companies on the list are as follows:
- Walt Disney
- Berkshire Hathaway
- JPMorgan Chase

The new honor comes a few days after the company set a new quarterly revenue record of $111.4 billion in the first quarter of 2021.
