A few observations:

  • Despite the fall in oil prices U.S. oil major Exxon Mobil(XOM) dominates the ranking with a market cap of over $362 billion.
  • With the economic recovery in the U.S. and European, banks have been re-rated and have gained some of their lost market caps. As a result some of the world’s top banks appear in the list.
  • China’s own Amazon-like internet retailer Alibaba(BABA) is valued at an astonishing $204 billion.
