The 200 Billion Dollar Club: World’s Largest Companies By Market Capitalization, 2016

The $200 Billion Dollar Club

It is not surprising that the top 3 largest companies by market capitalization, in 2016, are all technology companies: Apple, Alphabet (the newly minted parent company of Google), and Microsoft. So, you want to get into the 200 billion-dollar club, try your luck at developing technology solutions.

The 200 billion-dollar club, though, is not like The Eagles’ Hotel California; you can check-out any time you like, and you can leave, too.
