The 10 Best Companies in the World

Paul Larson, editor of Morningstar's Stock Investor names the 10 best companies in the world in a recent "Where to Invest" pamphlet. A pre-requisite to being on this list is that the company mentioned must have a dominant market position, meaning it will take the competition years to eat into the product lines and innovations of the original company.

Take this information for what its worth:

  1. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B)
  2. Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME)
  3. Fiserv (FISV)
  4. Intuit (INTU)
  5. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
  6. Mastercard (MA)
  7. McCormick (MKC)
  8. Microsoft (MSFT)
  9. Proctor & Gamble (PG)
  10. Strayer Education (STRA)

In case this needed to be mentioned...this isn't an official recommendation of any of these companies, it is purely for entertainment purposes.
