We're talking about some of the biggest companies in the world that include Google/Alphabet, Facebook, Microsoft, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Amazon, and more. Amazon reached $500 billion back when it went public in 1997, with social media giant Facebook hitting the $500 billion mark when it launched its IPO back in 2012.

Tencent went public in 2004 but has had absolutely phenomenal growrth over the last two years, with a shot to the moon in 2017 going from HK$175 per share to a huge HK$400+ per share.
