12:51 EDTCF, DHI, PHM, PM, CVI, WYNN, SCCO, ALV, BWA, FIS, V, AIG, MET, EMC, IBM, QCOM, INTC, AAPL, AAMRQThe Barron's 500 for 2012 honors companies with strong financial performance
The Barron's 500 is our annual salute to companies that have done the best job of growing their businesses. The lists seeks to identify companies with superior financial performance. To receive an "A" this year, companies had to log sales growth of 22% in their latest fiscal year. This year's top-ranked company in the No.1 spot is CF Industries Holdings (CF). Technology names are well represented toward the top of this year's list, with Apple (AAPL) landing at No. 2, and Intel (INTC) at No. 6. Other tech stalwarts high on the 2012 list include Qualcomm (QCOM), EMC (EMC) and IBM (IBM). Few financial companies have landed near the top of the Barron's 500 in recent years, but insurer MetLife (MET) cracked the top 10 this year, moving up to No. 9 from No. 124 - based on its $16.3B acquisition of American Life Insurance Co., or Alico. from American Int'l Group (AIG) in November 2010. Some regulars, that generate lots of cash flow, have returned to top spots again: Visa (V) is among the top 10 again this year, while Fidelity National Information Svcs (FIS) is No. 25, down from No. 3 last year. Both companies could enjoy tremendous operating leverage as business improves.Barron's says. The auto industry's revived fortunes are apparent, as several industry suppliers have risen in the rankings. BorgWarner (BWA) clocks in at No. 19, up from No. 46 in 2011, and Autoliv (ALV) is No. 21, advancing from No. 89 last year. Many commodities-focused companies also fared well, including No. 3-ranked Southern Copper (SCCO). Also making the cut to join the club were: Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and CVR Energy (CVI). Philip Morris (PM), which garnered the No. 7 spot this year, is up up from No. 34 last year, as it grew revenue by 14% in 2011. Home builders PulteGroup (PHM) and D.R. Horton (DHI) aren't included this year because their sales fell below Barron's cutoff. American Airlines' parent, AMR (AAMRQ), was disqualified when it filed for bankruptcy protection. Other companies, such as BJ's Wholesale Club, were acquired. In all, 32 names that were on the 2011 list are absent this year, replaced by newcomers such as CF Industries. Reference Link
