There are few companies currently worth more than one trillion dollars. Besides the American Big Tech and the Saudi Arabian mostly state-owned oil giant, however, there’s room for more, and one contender is aiming to carve its name into the trillionaire pantheon. Today, we’ll cover the potential next trillion-dollar company and why you should buy its stock now.

The list of trillion dollar companies

A trillion-dollar company is a publicly-traded company with a market capitalization of over $1 trillion.

At the moment, there are seven publicly traded trillion-dollar companies:

What is the next trillion dollar company?

Closest to the threshold of reaching a trillion dollars in market capitalization is Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.B), with the current market capitalization of $878 billion.

We think Berkshire might be the first past the post by no means just because it is numerically close to becoming a trillion-dollar company. In fact, the company has shown a strong level of resilience and diversification. While primarily focused on insurance, it has made major efforts within various sectors, including energy, transportation, infrastructure, retail, and manufacturing.

Although concluding 2022 with a net loss, last year’s financial report showed a 5% increase in insurance revenue and a significant reversal in investment and derivatives, which went from a loss of $67.89 billion to a $74.86 billion gain. This drove the BRK.B price to a record high of $420.52 on March 28, 2024.

If Berkshire Hathaway reaches a market capitalization value of more than $1 trillion, it would be the first non-technology American business to become a trillion-dollar company.
