Technology companies have taken over the ranking of most valuable companies by market capitalization, ahead of the consumer goods industry and financial companies. And this is a trend that will only tend to grow in the coming years. And how could it be otherwise, the United States leads the ranking and most companies with higher market value. We share the 10 largest companies in the world.

To get an idea, following the data of Bloomberg, the ranking of industries would place technology companies with 34% of the total weight of the 100 most valuable companies. It would be followed by the financial sector with 18% of the total weight and the pharmaceutical and chemical industry with a weight of 12%.

Energy (7.8%), food (5%), telecommunications (4.3%) and consumption (3%) would complete this ranking.

To get an idea, companies in the United States would represent about 65% of global capitalization, and European companies 16%. And as a curiosity, only a Spanish company would enter the top 100 companies by market capitalization. This company would be Inditex, with 83,430 million euros in value.

Microsoft has regained the first position. It is a company that many had forgotten that in their directive they know how to generate income and know how to return to the market with much more force. At present, Microsoft has a historical value of 853,000 million dollars and a PER of 25. It is the largest companies in the world.

2. Apple

This company has been the first in all history that has managed to exceed one trillion stock market capitalization. Although it has been severely punished due to its latest presentation of results, it is still struggling to become the most valuable company on the planet with 819,940 million dollars of stock market capitalization and continues to fight against its biggest rival, Microsoft. It has a PER of 26.

3. Amazon

Today I dare to say that in a few years Amazon will be the most valuable company on the planet, and we will argue soon. The company of Jeff Bezos has a value of 809.530 million dollars of stock market capitalization and a PER of 81, which in this case, is a PER that in my personal opinion reflects the expectations of growth that investors expect from this company. It is the 3rd largest companies in the world.

4. Alphabet (Google)

With a stock market capitalization of 800.210 million dollars and a PER of 26, Google is positioned as the third most valuable company in the world, although this company, in my opinion, will fight in the very near future with Amazon for the first place. And we will also talk about this fact in the next video

5. Berkshire Hathaway

6. Facebook
