Fortune 1000

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Fortune 1000'

A list created by Fortune magazine detailing the 1,000 largest companies in the United States. The Fortune 1000 is based on revenues, rather than other metrics of size, such as market cap or enterprise value. Since revenues are the basis for inclusion on the list, only companies that make revenue figures publicly available are eligible for inclusion in the list.
