Nintendo: 4th biggest public company in Japan for 2008

Not content with being the most powerful console maker on the planet, Nintendo have become 2008’s most valuable Japanese company.  Kotaku have kindly translated the results:

Here is the 2008 year end Tokyo Stock Exchange market cap rankings:

1. Toyota Motors: 10.160 trillion yen
2. NTT Docomo: 7.915 trillion yen
3. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group: 6.5109 trillion yen
4. Nintendo: 4.7813 trillion yen (US$52,732,987,757.80)
5. Tokyo Electric: 4.586 trillion yen
6. Takeda Pharmaceutical Company: 3.7823 trillion yen
7. Canon: 3.6945 trillion yen
8. Honda: 3.4971 trillion yen
9. JT: 2.95 trillion yen
10. KDDI: 2.8478 trillion yen

This is the seventh consecutive year that Toyota has come in first place — though, the company’s market cap was down 54 percent compared to last year. The rough economy also has been hard on Sony, who dropped from last year’s 8th place ranking to this year’s 23rd spot.
