    I guess they mean biggest business whose HQ is in the state. Toyota Motor is almost 4x bigger by revenue than Well Point in Indiana. TM makes Highlander and Sienna in their Gibson County, Indiana, plant.

    This is a silly metric when you include insurance companies. Wellpoint in Indiana, Cardinal Health in Ohio and Humana in Kentucky, their “revenues” are actually premiums that they are going to have to return in the form of coverage. When you go to gross profit, Cardinal in Ohio is 4.9 billion compared to Proctor and Gamble’s 41b in gross profit, but P&G is 10 bil below Cardinal in Revenue.

      not if they can help it. they try really hard to ensure that as much of the premiums paid are paid out as claims. otherwise they wouldnt be business long.
