April 5, 2014 — Leave a comment

The top 10 now includes Apple AAPL -1.29% , FacebookFB -4.61% , Google and Amazon.com AMZN -3.18% . 14 years ago, Apple hadn’t yet launched the iPod, much less the iPhone or iPad, and Google wasn’t a publicly traded company. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was still in high school, and Amazon had been public for less than two years.

Who’s stayed in the top 10 after all this time? MicrosoftMSFT -2.78% , Cisco CSCO -1.64% , Qualcomm QCOM -2.51% and Intel INTC -0.95%  — though their market capitalizations are all greatly diminished.
