However, as of April 7th, 2010, the US stocks with the largest market capitalizations are:
XOM (Exxon Mobil Corporation) - $319.6 Billion
MSFT (Microsoft Corporation) - $257.52 Billion

A few things to note on this list:
1. Apple has surged over the past year or so, passing such behemoths as Berkshire Hathaway and Wal-Mart.
2. Microsoft's stock price hasn't budged a bit over the past 10 years.
3. JP Morgan and Bank of America have also surged over the past year, thanks to the strong recovery of the financial sector.
