As the falling oil price pushed Exxon Mobil dropped out of the top three for the first time.  Meanwhile, Google (sorry, Alphabet) and Microsoft took two and three this year.

The list is dominated by tech companies, which take five of the top ten slots.  It also shows the relative decline of the financial sector, which had three companies in the top 10 before the 2008 crisis. This year, Wells Fargo is the only bank.
