Tesla Tops World’s Most Innovative Firms List While Apple Drops Out: RANKED 2016


Tesla Motors, the electric vehicle manufacturer was ranked No. 1 on a list of the most innovative firms in the world for 2016 by Forbes magazine. Salesforce.com (CRM) grabbed the second spot.

But, yes, that did happen. It came as quite a surprise to me that Apple has slipped out of the top 100. The list is dominated by companies from America and Asia.

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals that researched on the treatment of Ebola and Zika placed third on the list. Rounding out the top five are two other pharmaceutical giants: Incyte and Alexion Pharmaceuticals.

Magazine ranked companies on what it calls an “innovation premium” — a proprietary algorithm based on the difference between a company’s market capitalization and the net value of cash flow from its existing businesses.
