Fortune’s annual list of the World’s Most Admired Companies has been released and once again Apple is on top.

It’s Apple’s seventh year in a row on top of the list thanks to ranking number one in seven of the nine key attributes of reputation listed in the poll.

Tech companies claimed the top three slots, with Amazon in second and Google in third. Rounding out the top five are Berkshire Hathaway and Starbucks, followed by Coca-Cola, Walt Disney, and FedEx.

“The iconic tech company known for the iPhone and other stylish and user-friendly products is back in the top spot on this year’s list, for the seventh year in a row,” wrote Fortune’s Erika Fry. “Apple, the most valuable brand on the planet according to Interbrand, brought in $171 billion in revenues in FY2013 and is flush with cash, but fan boys and girls (not to mention the market) are getting antsy to see its next big product. Bets are on a smartwatch or AppleTV, but the company is also reportedly turning its attention to cars and medical devices.”
