IEEE Releases List of "Top Patent Companies"

It's been stated that one of the most valuable assets financial analysts and other potential stakeholders should consider are the number of patents held by a company. Taking this principle to heart, IEEE Spectrum has published a study, conducted by 1790 Analytics, that analyzes patent portfolios of 1,178 organizations and compares those portfolios on the basis of patent citations. Referencing patent citations serve as indicators of technological output and information flow. Ultimately, the goal of the study was to identify the organizations with the most influential— and potentially the most lucrative— patent portfolios.

The study identifies the top ranking companies for the following industry sectors:

--Aerospace and Defense
--Computer Peripherals and Storage
--Computer Systems and Software
--Medical Equipment/Instruments
--Semiconductor Equipment Manufacturing
--Semiconductor Manufacturing
--Telecom Equipment
--Telecom Services
