16 Florida companies make Fortune 500 rankings

Fortune magazine's 2011 Fortune 500 list of the nation's largest public companies, ranked by annual revenues, includes 16 corporations based in Florida. Four of the 16 are headquartered in the greater Tampa Bay area.

Nine of the 16 fell in this year's rankings compared to last year's. Five improved. One stayed the same, and another was not listed last year.

In its 2010 rankings, Fortune listed a company called International Assets Holding in Altamonte Springs as the largest, by far, based in Florida. A precious-metals trader, the company generated revenues inflated by accounting rules. The company has since moved its headquarters to New York and is now known as INTL FCStone. There are still 16 Florida companies on the Fortune 500, though, because Fidelity National Financial, a Jacksonville business on the list, spun off Fidelity National Information Services, which also qualified for the 2011 listing.

Here are the 16 Florida companies, ranked by revenues, on this year's Fortune 500 list.
