For this year, Apple came out on top for the eighth year in a row. Google and Berkshire Hathaway, led by Warren Buffett ranked second and third respectively. E-commerce giant came out fourth followed by Starbucks.

Four new companies landed on this year’s list – Chipotle, CVS Health, and financial services giant USAA. However, consumer criticism and security hacks have caused Mcdonald’s and Target to slip.
