Largest Virginia Companies Outside the Washington Area

Monday, May 1, 2006

Dominion Resources Inc., parent of Dominion Virginia Power, reported a decline in profit in part because of hurricane-related delays in oil and gas production. The hurricanes also disrupted operations of Norfolk Southern Corp., but the higher fuel prices that followed caused more customers to ship by rail instead of truck. Genworth Financial Inc. of Richmond, which provides insurance and investment-related products and services, was spun off by General Electric Co. in mid-2004. Smithfield Foods Inc. had to contend with both a decline in hog prices and the environmental effects of its hog farms and production facilities.
