Who knows who top companies are in the stock market are?

Perhaps you might explain what you mean by top companies. Most might define top companies as those with the largest market capitalization. Anyway that would certainly mean those that people thought were worth the most.
In those terms Exxon Mobile would be near the top of the list. Even though it is not worth so much as it was just a few months ago there still is no company even close.
Following would be Wal-Mart and Microsoft. GE used to be higher but it has fallen on hard times lately. It is not so highely acclaimed as it once was. Procter and Gamble might have over taken GE today. I am not certain. It is very close. Jonhson & Johson is not too far behind. It is pretty rock solid.

Search "blue chips", or look up the Members of the S&P 500.
GOOG, XOM, YHOO, BRKA, etc.
