The Walt Disney Company (Disney)

Currently, Disney is one of the biggest and most well-known companies in the world that has been ranked number 53 on the 2022 Fortune 500 list of biggest companies in the United States by revenue. It has won a total of 135 Academy Awards with 26 awarded to Walt since it is founded.

Disney has been criticized for alleged plagiarism, depicting racial stereotypes in the past, and both including and lacking LGBT-related elements in its films. The company, which has been public since 1940, trades on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) with the ticker symbol DIS and has been a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average since 1991. In August 2020, just under two-thirds of the stock was owned by large financial institutions (according to Wikipedia).
