The full Fortune 1000 list is out, and as always, its rather interesting if just for the surprises:

19.  Cardinal Health 88,363.9 1,931.1
20.  Goldman Sachs Group 87,968.0 11,599.

Some surprises on the list: I hadn't expected to see Ford come in at #7, or Berkshire Hathaway at 11, and Goldman Sachs at 20.

Fortune slices and dices the info in a variety of ways: Investment  Returns by Industry; You can also see the 20 Most Profitable companies.

I also like the nice mashup of Google Maps and the list -- this views is "25 Most Profitable firms."
