Top 20 Largest and Most Valuable Companies in Malaysia - Dividend Magic (2022)

Top 20 Largest and Most Valuable Companies in Malaysia - Dividend Magic (1)

Ever since the Covid-19 outbreak, Malaysia has seen a huge influx of new retail investors recently. I think a top 20 list of the largest and most valuable companies in Malaysia listed on the KLSE would be helpful. And fun.

The list would be based on the market capitalization of the companies listed on Bursa. I’ll be updating the list periodically.

For new investors, valuing a stock just based on its market cap is not the way to go. Instead, maybe use this list as a way to give you a place to start. Go deeper and start with annual reports and the company’s financials. If you like what you see and the numbers add up, it’s time to invest!

You can start with my Stock Investment Guide.
And also, open a brokerage account, my review of one of the best brokers in Malaysia – Rakuten Trade can be found hERE.

Latest List of the Top Companies in Malaysia by Market Cap

Updated July 2022

This is a fun list to have and to keep track of. The numbers are basic and you shouldn’t base your investment decisions solely on this. It is however a good place to start.

You can actually see which companies are overvalued or undervalued based on market cap and their net profits compared to previous years. But like I said, this should be your preliminary assessment. Pick the companies you want and dive deep from here.

Out of the 20 companies listed above, I have stakes in 4 companies. A full list of the stocks I own can be seen in my portfolio – the Freedom Fund.

Listing Malaysia’s top companies has been fun. However, I’d like to emphasize just how small Malaysia’s companies are:

(Video) Mohnish Pabrai highest conviction bets, Li Lu documentary & more!

Apple, the world’s most valuable company is valued at USD1.53 trillion. Converted to RM, that puts Apple’s valuation at a whopping RM6.53 trillion.

To put it in simpler terms.. our most valuable company – Maybank is worth 1.38% of Apple. This is why apart from investing in Malaysian companies, I am investing in the US as well.

Investing is easy, just make sure to not be drowned in the clutter and news surrounding the stocks you’re investing in. Trust sound judgement and trust the numbers.
