The company ranking improved in 2010, moving up the Fortune 500 list to 105th compared to 113th in 2009. This was based on its 2009 revenue of $22,430 million (a change of 1 million compared to 2010) and profits of $5,521 million (a change of $0 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 Oracle Corporation would be ranked 27th rather than 105th due to its profits of $5,593 in 2010.
