One of the top bloggers in our Top 50 Investing Blogs of 2017 is Visual Capitalist (VC). VC provides some of the best charts on the planet, covering a number of categories including investing.
Last month VC produced a chart called, Here’s How 5 Tech Giants Make Their Billions. It’s a stunning illustration of just how these five companies – Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook now dominate the U.S. market, worth a collective $2.9 Trillion in market capitalization.
Here’s an excerpt from that article:
HOW THEY MAKE THEIR BILLIONS
Each of these companies is pretty unique in how they generate revenue, though there is some overlap:
- Facebook and Alphabet each make the vast majority of their revenues from advertising (97% and 88%, respectively)
- Apple makes 63% of their revenue from the iPhone, and another 21% coming from the iPad and Mac lines
- Amazon makes 90% from its “Product” and “Media” categories, and 9% from AWS
- Microsoft is diverse: Office (28%), servers (22%), Xbox (11%), Windows (9%), ads (7%), Surface (5%), and other (18%)
