The Fortune 500 is a ranking of the top 500 American public corporations as measured by gross revenue, although eligible companies are any for which revenues are publicly available (which is a larger universe than "public companies," as the term is commonly understood, meaning "companies having common stock that trades on a stock exchange"). Fortune magazine compiles and publishes the list annually.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortune_500
