The company's ranking in 2010 was a decline from 2009 when it was ranked 277th on the Fortune 500. The Previous ranking was based on its 2009 revenue of $9,700 million (a change of -2 million compared to 2010) and profits of $-391 million (a change of 208 million compared to 2010).

Another point of view

To many investors, profits are more important than revenue a company earns, If the Fortune 500 was ranked by profits instead of revenue then Masco Corporation would be ranked 430th rather than 291st due to the fact it made a loss of $-183 million in 2010.
