HB500 Sector Analysis: Many Industries Enjoyed Success, Thrived in 2008

In the world of business, a major recession does not necessarily mean everybody suffers together. Bright spots always exist. Sometimes the trend-beaters are individual companies, and sometimes -- as this year's HB 500 shows -- they are entire industries. Surprisingly, despite Wall Street's ignominious role in the unraveling of the U.S. economy, the financial sector was a stellar performer within the HB 500. ...continue

Ana Madan Puts a Brighter Sheen on the Golden Arches

You might agree with Ana Madan's refrain that ketchup runs in her veins. The 49-year-old entrepreneur owns and operates six McDonald's restaurants in Northern New Jersey. Correction: high-volume McDonald's restaurants. Meaning busy. Meaning successful. True, she may have had a leg up of sorts. Her father, Roberto Madan, became a McDonald's owner/operator in the late 1970s, while Ms. Madan was a teenager. But in those days she never pictured being a McDonald's career woman. ...continue

Backing Up Couldn't Be Easier Easy With SanDisk Ultra Backup

Vicious malware. Faulty, exploding batteries. An unfortunate incident with an in-flight beverage service. Sure, if you're careful, these are unlikely.

HB 500 Persevere Through Bearish Year

With 2007 marking the start of the worst recession since the 1930s -- and with the annual Fortune 500 list recently reporting its worst slump ever -- it would be fair to expect the HispanicBusiness 500 suffered the same fate. But they didn't. ...continue

Economic Outlook: Glimmers of Hope Amid Rough Patches

As we approach the second half of 2009, it's a good sign the rate of economic contraction is slowing. As consumer confidence grows, the Gross Domestic Product's rate of decline appears to be stabilizing, as does the national rate of job losses -- both metrics providing "glimmers of hope." That's the way it is these days -- we search the skyline for glimmers. ...continue

Corner Office: The HB 500

We publish the 27th HispanicBusiness 500 at a time when the pillars of the U.S. economy are shaking. Yet the HispanicBusiness 500, if one considers a key metric, managed to post an increase in total sales revenue this year. In 2007, the 500 posted revenue of $36.13 billion, compared with $36.15 billion in 2008, amounting to an increase of 0.1 percent. But let's not make too much hay out of this single fact. ...continue
