You can be forgiven for thinking Apple holds the top spot on the list of Fortune 500 companies.

Mohawk Industries, the world's biggest floorcovering manufacturer based in Calhoun, Ga., grew its revenues previous year by 3.5 percent to $8.1 billion.

Xerox, headquartered in Stamford, placed 150th, down from 143rd. The maker of iPhones, iPads, Mac computers, the Apple Watch and Apple TV is big enough for just third place among the Fortune 500. Rounding out the top five is Berkshire Hathaway and McKesson. For the entire list, revenues were down 4.2 percent and profits declined 11 percent from previous year.

But there is one chart where Apple still sits in the wings, and hasn't yet ascended to the gold medal winner's platform: The Fortune 500 list of world's biggest companies.

"The Fortune 500 emerged a bit battered from events of the past year", said Fortune Editor Alan Murray in writing about this year's Fortune 500 list.

Statewide, supermarket giant Publix of Lakeland topped the Florida 17 at No. 87, up from No. 101 previous year with annual revenues topping $32 billion.

Other Florida-based Fortune 500 companies ranged from Fort Lauderdale's AutoNation, the country's largest retailer of vehicles, ranking at No. 136, to recent New Jersey transplant Hertz Global Holdings.
