WASHINGTON — A major financial services company in McLean, a giant defense contracting company in Bethesda and a D.C.-based conglomerate all landed on a new list of “America’s Top Public Companies,” released by Forbes this week.

All told, 15 D.C.-area companies landed on the list, which ranks 500 publicly traded companies based on their revenue, profit, assets and market value as March 2017. Forbes weighed all four metrics equally to help “account for nuances in the myriad ways that investors value a company,” Forbes said in a post.
