Fortune has released their annual list of the world’s most-admired companies, and Apple has again topped the list, scoring the number one overall rank as well as a number one spot in the “Computers” category. Apple has held the top spot, perhaps unsurprisingly, for seven straight years.

Fortune cites both Apple’s huge profitability as well as its trendy products as primary reasons for the company’s placement on the list. An overall score of 7.94 was assigned based on a survey of 3,920 respondents asked to select their 10 most admired companies from a list of 692 companies spanning 30 countries.

Apple was trailed by number-two Amazon with top competitor Google taking third place. The three tech giants are followed by companies from a variety of industries, including Coca-Cola, Disney, Starbucks, and General Electric, which help round out the top 10.
