Apple is once again tops in the eyes of the business world, according to Fortune.
The iPhone maker took the lead as the world's most admired company for the fifth year in a row.
Selected No. 1 by business professionals polled for Fortune's annual list, Apple was cited for its banner year. CEO Tim Cook was able to steer the company after the resignation and death of Steve Jobs to end 2012 with a prosperous fourth quarter thanks to heavy demand for the iPhone 4s.
