Published in the May 5 issue of Barron’s, the list is a ranking of the 500 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. and Canada that have made the most of their assets in recent years and recorded a superior operating performance.
Ecolab ranked number 119 on the 2013 Barron’s 500 list.
The Barron's 500 is an exclusive ranking of the 500 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. and Canada, as measured by sales in the latest fiscal year. HOLT, a unit of Credit Suisse, grades and ranks companies based on three equally weighted metrics: median three-year cash-flow-based return on investment; the one-year change in that measure, relative to the three-year median; and adjusted sales growth in the latest fiscal year.
