Last month Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) overtook Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) in market capitalization. Since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill BP’s (NYSE:BP) market cap has decreased dramatically. So I wanted to see which US-listed foreign companies had the largest market capitalization.

The following foreign companies have market cap of over $100B as of market close today:

1. PetroChina Company Limited (NYSE:PTR)
Current Dividend Yield: N/A

2. China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE:CHL)
Current Dividend Yield: 3.78%

3. BHP Billiton Limited (NYSE:BHP)
Current Dividend Yield: 2.55%

4. HSBC Holdings plc (HBC)
Current Dividend Yield: 3.38%

5. Royal Dutch Shell plc (NYSE:RDS.A)
Current Dividend Yield: 6.41%

6. Petroleo Brasileiro SA (NYSE:PBR)
Current Dividend Yield: 0.40%

7. BHP Billiton plc (NYSE:BBL)
Current Dividend Yield: 3.02%

8. Vale (NYSE:VALE)
Current Dividend Yield: 1.78%

9. China Life Insurance Company Ltd. (NYSE:LFC)
Current Dividend Yield:0.76%

Current Dividend Yield:

12. Vodafone Group Plc (NASDAQ:VOD)

The most valued company is Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) of the US at about $294 billion, followed by Apple with $236B. BP’s market cap is slightly lower than $100B at about $98B. Royal Dutch Shell plc and TOTAL SA have high yields over 6% now, due to a fall in stock prices.
