A method first used to search for events leading to the changes of sizes of major US, UK, and world cities is applied to investigate the presence of events influencing incomes of commercial companies. Top 100 US companies from the period of 1955-2005 are analyzed. Distributions of incomes are found to be stable but the changes in rank positions of companies lead to discovery of some instabilities. Parameters describing changes in the rank positions are calculated, discussed, and compared to the results of previous studies.
