CBS is a Fortune 500 company. In 2010 CBS was ranked number 177 on the Fortune 500 list, making it the 177th largest company in the United States when judged by revenue.

CBS achieved revenue of $13,014.60 million in 2010 and earned a profit of $226.50 million.

CBS' rank improves

The company ranking improved in 2010, moving up the Fortune 500 list to 177th compared to 186th in 2009. This was based on its 2009 revenue of $13,950 million (a change of 0 million compared to 2010) and profits of $-11,673 million (a change of $238 million compared to 2009).

Another point of view

To many investors, profits are more important than the revenue a company earns. If the Fortune 500 was ranked by profits instead of revenue then CBS would be ranked 306th rather than 177th due to its profits of $227 in 2010.
