  • The Companies Worth Less Than Facebook 0 comments
    Jan 13, 2011 2:22 PM | about stocks: GS, WAG, BLK, VMW, HAL, AIG, NOK, LLY, CL, NWSA, UNH, DOW, MS, EMC, BMY, ORAN, TGT, GWW, NKE

    I was curious about which companies are worth less than Facebook’s purported $50 billion valuation – so I decided to look it up.  Here are some of the blue chip names (and market caps) you can get at a lower valuation than Facebook without paying Goldman Sachs’ exorbitant transaction fees:

    • EMC – $47.2B
    • Bristol-Myers Squibb – $45.1B
    • France Telecom – $42.5B
    • Target – $42.5B
    • BMW – $42.4B
    • Grainger – $42.3B
    • Nike – $41.6B
    • Morgan Stanley – $41.4B
    • Dow Chemical – $39.9B
    • UnitedHealth Group – $39.4B
    • News Corp – $39.2B
    • Colgate-Palmolive – $39.1B
    • Eli Lillly – $38.9B
    • Nokia – $38.0B
    • AIG – $37.3B
    • Halliburton -$36.7B
    • VMWare – $36.6B
    • BlackRock – $36.3B
    • Walgreen – $36.1B


    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
