Top 100 Companies with Largest Market Cap

I’m am enjoying these lists that I’m creating every now and then. Compiling them is becoming more fun by the day, and it seems that my readers like them as well. Today I am listing the top 100 companies (that are publicly traded in the US markets) by market capitalization. I always thought that Apple was the largest company by market cap, but it seems that I was wrong. Here’s the list:

100 Boeing Company 54.010B BA 73.15

As you can see, the company with the largest market cap is (surprise surprise!) EXXON, an oil company. With a market cap of almost $400 billion, I don’t see EXXON being surpassed by market cap anytime soon, even by Apple (AAPL needs to be trading at $429 to surpass XOM and become the company with the largest market cap, assuming that XOM keeps trading at the same price of $80.21).

It’s interesting that a lot (if not most) companies in the above list are not US companies (Just look at the top 5).

Note #1: This list is valid at the time of publishing. As well all know, the market cap of any company changes every trading second!
Note #2: Telefonos de Mexico is listed in Yahoo (where the data comes from) as having a market cap of $292 billion, while it’s listed on Google finance as having a market cap of just over $10 billion. Don’t know what the real story of this stock is. Same goes for other companies, such as Hitachi.
Note #3: Some companies, such as Petroleo Brasileiro, are listed more than once, because they are trading under different stocks.

Hi Atsuhiro,

The article gets its data from Yahoo Finance, take a look at HIT there: http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=HIT&ql=1

I have no idea why HIT’s market cap is listed differently on financial websites.
