Pfiz­er lands on For­tune’s most ad­mired list, edg­ing out Dis­ney, Google and Star­bucks in an­nu­al rep­u­ta­tion rank­ing

The Covid-19 vac­cine ha­lo con­tin­ues for Pfiz­er. This week, the Big Phar­ma came in at No. 4 on For­tune’s an­nu­al rank­ing of the most ad­mired com­pa­nies in the world.

Pfiz­er fin­ished be­hind a tri­fec­ta of tech gi­ants — Ap­ple, Ama­zon and Mi­crosoft — but land­ed ahead of Walt Dis­ney, Berk­shire Hath­away, Al­pha­bet, Star­bucks, Net­flix and JP­Mor­gan Chase round­ing out the top 10.

Big deal? Ac­tu­al­ly, yes, it is. A phar­ma com­pa­ny hasn’t been in the top 10 since 2010 and that was John­son & John­son, bet­ter known for its con­sumer prod­ucts. Pfiz­er it­self hadn’t fin­ished in the top 50 — the group For­tune refers to as its All-Stars list — since 2006. J&J is a re­li­able All-Stars fin­ish­er, this year land­ing at No. 17, down a bit from No. 15 last year.
