This is a follow up the post yesterday: This is How Big AAPL Is (One Chart)

We can see two phenomena instantaneously:
1. No firm has greater revenue than WMT, at nearly half a trillion dollars in the last year.
2. No firm has greater net income (that's after taxes) than AAPL, at ~$38 billion in the last year.
