Visual Capitalist shows a moving picture of the largest-cap companies from 2000-2022.
It’s interesting to watch as companies come and go. General Electric vanished from the list after the 2009 financial crisis due to mismanagement. Chinese companies appeared and disappeared. Saudi Aramco suddenly appeared out of nowhere at the top of the list. XOM, once at the very top, fell off.
Stalwarts like MSFT appear continuously. New arrivals like Tesla show up.
Which will stay? Which are overvalued and will go >poof!< with time?
