Actually, the top five corporations as far as revenues are concerned at the end of 1997 are as follows:
1.General Motors corp.,$178,174,000,000
2.Ford Motor company, $153,627,000,000
3.Exxon, $122,379,000,000
4.Walmart, $119,299,000,000
5.General Electric, $90,840,000,000

Neither McDs or Coke came close as far as revenues are concerned, with Coke and Coca Cola enterprises combined taking in about $30,000,000,000
and McDonalds brought home $11,409,000,000.

Admitatly, all of these listed are Dow components.

BTW, what's wrong with combining to make profits?
