List of corporations by market capitalization


List of corporations by market capitalization

The following is a list of publicly traded companies having the greatest market capitalization, as well as government-owned corporations by estimated market value. Market capitalization is calculated from the share price (as recorded on selected day) multiplied by the number of shares issued. Figures are converted into USD millions (using rate from selected day) to allow for comparison.

It is important to note that there are many state-owned companies that are far larger in size than even the largest public corporation. For example Saudi Aramco value is estimated from $781 billion [1] to $7 trillion USD, more than a dozen times the size of any companies on this list.[2]
