Value Proposition

The ultimate goal of any publicly traded company is to increase its market value or total market capitalization. So how did the top technology vendor companies do toward that goal in 2019?

Between the Dec. 31, 2018, and Dec. 31, 2019, stock market closing bells, 30 of the 39 technology vendor companies on our watch list increased their market cap—some by significant double-digit percentages and one nearly tripling its market value. Nine companies, however, saw their market caps decline during the year.

Our list includes Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft, all four of which have passed—for a time—the $1 trillion market cap threshold (including Google parent Alphabet in January). But only two actually finished the year in $1 trillion territory.

Market caps are largely determined by the value of a company's stock and the number of outstanding shares. So day-to-day market cap gains and declines tend to track closely to the value of a company's shares, as illustrated in our quarterly and annual Tech Stocks slide show. But market cap values can also change when companies issue additional shares of stock or when they initiate stock buybacks, thus changing the total number of outstanding shares.

Here's a look at who was up and who was down in 2019, starting with companies with the biggest gains in market cap, based on stock closing prices on Dec. 31, 2018, and Dec. 31, 2019.

Note: These market capitalizations all precede last week’s plunge in the major stock market indexes, so you can be sure some of these company values are lower.
