The Motley Fool recognizes the 25 Best American Companies.

Award for The Motley Fool's 25 Best Companies in America
Too many ‘Best of’ lists look at just one factor. Our methodology is broader in scope and looks at multiple factors that make a company great.

The Motley Fool—the leading website for investors online at fool.com—released today their list of the 25 Best Companies in America. Topping the list is Cummins, Inc., a nearly 100-year-old diesel engine manufacturer based in Indiana. For more surprises see the full list of the 25 Best Companies in America.

More than 1,700 publicly-traded companies were put through a rigorous process of analysis by The Motley Fool. Each company was evaluated for its success in serving investors, customers, employees, and the world at large. The 25 best-rated companies included well-known consumer names and tech companies along with lesser-known companies that, up until now, may not be receiving the recognition they deserve.

Senior Analyst John Reeves, who helped oversee the creation of our 25 Best Companies List, said that, “Too many ‘Best of’ lists look at just one factor, such as workplace satisfaction or stock returns. Our methodology is broader in scope and looks at multiple factors that make a company great. At The Motley Fool, we believe the companies that effectively serve all of their stakeholders—customers, shareholders, employees and the world—are not only outstanding companies, but possibly great investments as well.”
