Minnesota Increases Number Of Fortune 500 Companies To 19

Fortune 500 by Revenue

The 64t annual (2018) Fortune 500 list came out today and Minnesota added 2 companies to the list with Securian Financial Group and Polaris Industries. This is good news and helps soften the bad news last week that Mosaic is moving their HQ’s to Florida.

So technically we will have 18 but as of this moment and according to the Fortune list we have 19. I’ll take it while we can.

Other *’s would be:

- We lost St Jude Medical as a HQ’s after being acquired by Abbott Laboratories

- Medtronic moved their HQ’s offshore

- Cargill would be around #25 if it were included. Why some private groups and cooperatives are not included… I do not know.

The heat map above is based on the revenue of each company.

Generally our companies moved down the list although Securian and Polaris made huge jumps to go on it.

Here is how the list breaks down in order with how many spots they moved and a link to their Fortune page:

5 (+1) UnitedHealth Group

39 (-1) Target
