  • The two biggest stock exchanges in the world,

  • in terms of total market capitalization value

  • of the shares listed, are the New York Stock Exchange

  • (NYSE) and the NASDAQ.

  • But which of these two stock exchanges

  • has the highest number of "mega caps"?

  • Take your guess and find out

  • in this Finance Storyteller video.

  • Historically, the NYSE has always had the largest

  • total market capitalization of companies listed,

  • while the NASDAQ allows a far larger number of

  • companies to be listed, particularly

  • those that may be too small to meet

  • the requirements of the NYSE.

  • The NASDAQ also has far lower listing fees

  • than the NYSE.

  • What are "mega cap" companies?

  • Well, these are the Big Dogs!

  • A "mega cap" is a company with a market capitalization

  • exceeding $100 billion, some would even say

  • exceeding $200 billion.

  • Let's take a look at a subset of the top 25 companies

  • in the world in terms of market capitalization,

  • in the middle of May 2017.

  • 15 out of these 25 companies have their primary listing

  • in the US, so on either the NYSE or NASDAQ.

  • Let's see what you think!

  • How many of these 15 mega-"mega cap" companies

  • are listed on the NYSE versus NASDAQ respectively?

  • A hint: the NASDAQ has become a major exchange

  • for tech firms, many of whom are too small

  • in their start-up stages to be listed on the NYSE.

  • Is the correct answer: A 5 NYSE and 10 NASDAQ,

  • B 7 NYSE and 8 NASDAQ, C 10 and 5, or D 12 and 3.

  • Please vote using the YouTube card

  • that is now being displayed.

  • Here is the overview, NYSE listed companies on the left,

  • NASDAQ listed companies on the right.

  • Per mid-May 2017, out of the top 15, the top 5 is:

  • Apple with a market cap of $803 billion,

  • on the NASDAQ.

  • Alphabet (the corporate name for Google)

  • with a market cap of $653 billion, on the NASDAQ.

  • Microsoft, $533 billion, on the NASDAQ.

  • Amazon.com, $455 billion, on the NASDAQ.

  • Facebook, $436 billion, on the NASDAQ.

  • So the whole top 5 of companies with the largest

  • market capitalizations ranging from $436 billion

  • for Facebook to $803 billion for Apple,

  • is on the NASDAQ!

  • The next 5 have market capitalizations in the range of

  • $300 billion to $400 billion:

  • Berkshire Hathaway on the New York Stock Exchange,

  • Exxon Mobil on the New York Stock Exchange,

  • Johnson & Johnson on the New York Stock Exchange, JP Morgan Chase on the New York Stock Exchange,

  • and Alibaba on the New York Stock Exchange.

  • I know Alibaba is a Chinese company, but they did a

  • huge IPO in 2014 in the US, so I think

  • it is valid to have them be part of the

  • NYSE versus NASDAQ comparison.

  • The last 5, with market capitalizations of $230 billion to

  • $275 billion, are also on the New York Stock Exchange:

  • Wells Fargo, General Electric,

  • Bank of America, AT&T, and Walmart.

  • In total: 10 of the "mega cap" companies on the NYSE,

  • and 5 on the NASDAQ.

  • While the NASDAQ is home to the top 5 listed stocks

  • in the US, the NYSE also has a solid

  • line up with the next 10 largest companies.

  • At around $2.9 trillion dollars market capitalization

  • for the top 5 on the NASDAQ, and around the

  • same $2.9 trillion dollars for the next 10

  • on the New York Stock Exchange, these are

  • mindboggling valuations!

  • I hope you enjoyed this short video on the

  • NYSE versus NASDAQ listing of

  • large market cap companies.

  • I have many more videos available, that can help you

  • in doing your analysis of

  • financial statements before investing.
