Peabody Energy' rank improves

The company ranking improved in 2010, moving up the Fortune 500 list to 346th compared to 353rd in 2009. This was based on its 2009 revenue of $7,074 million (a change of -1 million compared to 2010) and profits of $954 million (a change of $-506 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 Peabody Energy would be ranked 223rd rather than 346th due to its profits of $448 in 2010.
