With many companies nearing or surpassing the $1 trillion market capitalization milestone, we’ve put together a graphic that visualizes the five largest companies trading on the Nasdaq, New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and international exchanges.

These figures come from, and are as of March 12, 2024.

Biggest Companies on the Nasdaq

The Nasdaq is largely dominated by the tech industry, with all of its top five companies belonging to the Magnificent Seven group of U.S. tech stocks.

CompanyMarket Cap (USD)
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Microsoft$3.1T
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Apple$2.7T
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Nvidia$2.3T
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Amazon$1.8T
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Google$1.7T

Altogether, these five companies have a combined market capitalization of nearly $12 trillion. To put this figure into context, the entire U.S. equity market is worth around $53 trillion.

Biggest Companies on the NYSE

The NYSEโ€™s largest companies are more diversified, with a combination of tech, financial services, and healthcare names present. Among this list, Warren Buffettโ€™s Berkshire Hathaway is the closest to becoming the next trillion dollar company.

CompanyMarket Cap (USD)
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Berkshire Hathaway$875B
๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ผ TSMC$749B
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Eli Lilly$717B
๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ Novo Nordisk$604B
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Visa$583B

Biggest Companies on International Exchanges

Saudi Aramco is the largest public company listed outside of the U.S., with a mammoth $2.1 trillion valuation.

CompanyMarket Cap (USD)
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Saudi Aramco$2.1T
๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท LVMH$469B
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Samsung$373B
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ Tencent$349B
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ Kweichow Moutai$305B

It should be noted, however, that the Saudi government directly owns 90% of the company, while another 8% is held by the countryโ€™s sovereign wealth fund.

This means that only 2% of shares are actually available to the public, prompting one Bloomberg columnist to call the firm’s valuation an “illusion”.
