Fortune Magazine recently released its annual list of the 500 largest U.S. corporations based on revenue. Virginia has 19 companies on the list, including seven in Richmond.

Locally, Huntington Ingalls Industries in Newport News jumped 30 spots from last year, and earned a ranking at No. 357. Dollar Tree in Chesapeake (No.111) and Norfolk Southern in Norfolk (No. 307) also made the list.

Richmond-based companies who also made the Fortune 500 include Performance Food Group (No. 114); Carmax (No.136); Altria Group (No.138); Dominion Energy (No. 193); Markel (No.311); Owens & Minor (No.348); and Genworth Financial (No. 364).

Not surprisingly, Walmart topped the list of the Fortune 500 for the 9th straight year, followed by Amazon.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
