Not every company wants to be on every top ten list. It's pretty likely that TiVo (Nasdaq: TIVO) (number 4), AT&T (NYSE: T) (number 6) and Dish Network (Nasdaq: DISH) (number 10) would have been happy to remain off 24/7 Wall St.'s list of the "Ten Companies Running Out of American Customers."
TiVo ranks high because "for more than five years cable companies have offered the same service without the need to buy a special device." AT&T, the article concludes "is doing very well ... but the company cannot avoid the fact that people are getting rid of their home phones." And Dish? Its subscribers are "facing difficult times financially, leading them to cancel their satellite services."
For what it's worth, others on the list include Best Buy (number 1), the U.S. Postal Service (number nu3) and--this might come as a surprise--Wal-Mart (mber 8).
