As of this writing, there are only two companies in these United States that have a Triple A credit rating. A higher rating, for what it’s worth, than the actual government of the United States.
Standard and Poor’s said it is downgrading Exxon to Double-A-plus amid concerns about low oil prices and higher investment costs. Exxon had been Triple A since 1949.
So here’s the quiz:
What are the two companies still Triple A?
Nope, not Apple.
Microsoft and Johnson and Johnson.
