This is the 1st ranking of TopBusinessFinance.com’s 50 largest companies in the Philippines in terms of market capitalization. I tabulated the market capitalization of the Philippines' top companies. Figures are gathered from the Philippine Stock Exchange website (www.pse.com.ph). The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) ranks as the Philippines’ number 1 most valuable company.
Philippines' Largest Company 2012
The companies are incorporated in the Philippines and are publicly-listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange. They are ranked by market capitalization (or simply market cap) – the greater the stock market value of a company, the higher its ranking. Market capitalization is the total value of the tradable shares of a publicly traded company. The formula of market cap is: share price multiplied by the number of shares outstanding.
The table of 50 largest Philippine companies below shows for each company: the rank in 2012, main industry/sector, and the market capitalization. The Philippine currency is converted into US dollar (1 US$ = PhP43).
A ranking such as this which is based on market capitalization presents a forward-looking element for investors’ expectations.
The most valuable industries in the list are telecommunications, beverage, real estate and banking.
