Top 20 Largest Companies in the Philippines 2016

This is a list of the top 20 largest companies in the Philippines in terms of market capitalization this year 2016. These companies are publicly listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). We use the market cap as the barometer of measuring the size and growth potential of the companies. Market cap is calculated by multiplying the total outstanding shares by the current market price of each share:
  • Market cap = Outstanding Shares x Current Market Price of 1 Share
Market cap reflects market value. Investors are willing to buy companies with growing market capitalization.

The bigger the market cap, the greater the growth potential.
