List of public corporations by market capitalization

The following is a list of publicly traded companies having the greatest market capitalization. In media they are described as being the most valuable companies, a reference to their market value.[1]

Market capitalization is calculated from the share price (as recorded on selected day) multiplied by the number of outstanding shares.[2] Figures are converted into USD millions (using rate from selected day) to allow for comparison. Only companies with free float of at least 15% are included, value of unlisted stock classes is excluded. Investment companies are not included in the list.[3]
