Union Pacific Railroad Is One Of 'World's Most Respected' Companies

OMAHA, Neb., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Pacific recently was named to The World's Most Respected Companies list compiled by Barron's. Ranked No. 19 out of the world's 100 largest publicly traded companies, Union Pacific was rated by participants asked to select one of four statements reflecting their view of each company, ranging from "highly respect" to "don't respect."

Union Pacific.

The company is the only North American railroad to be named to the list. Results indicated that more than 70 percent of respondents either respect or highly respect the company. Union Pacific delivers the goods many American families and businesses use every day, serving nearly 7,300 communities across the United States.

Since 2005, Barron's has been surveying institutional investors about their views of the world's 100 largest publicly traded companies, as measured by total stock market capitalization. The latest survey, conducted in part by Beta Research in Syosset, New York, drew responses from 101 investors and was weighted based on each response, with the highest accorded to "highly respect."
