I don’t get it. These are the what’s in the world? The most popular? The most profitable? If you quote stats, please be kind to inform us what you are quoting…

Sorry. I thought it would be clear enough considering the stats for how much money the companies are worth is there and there is a link.

I just like lists. Top 10 Top 100 whatever it may be. Richest people. Richest countries.

I too have a love for stats.

I guess if you mean what someone will pay for them, its probably correct, since these are all listed companies. But since listed companies trade at multiples to earnings / value then there will always be a large discrepency between listed an unlisted companies.

Whilst thats not going to affect the top 10 companies, it would probably start affecting the top 100 or 1000.
