Key Factor of Ranking

Market capitalization, total assets, sales, net income, and profits per share are often the factors considered to select the top 25 companies listed on the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).

Market Cap

The total value of a company’s outstanding shares of stock is known as market capitalization, or “market cap.” It is determined by dividing the stock price at the time of calculation by the number of outstanding shares. Corporations with a more significant market capitalization are often rated higher on the list of top companies since they are considered more valuable.

Total Assets Turnover

Total assets, including cash, investments, and property, relate to the aggregate value of all the corporation’s resources. Companies are often ranked higher on the list if they have more total assets because they
are thought to be financially stronger.

Gross and Net Income 

The total amount of money a firm earns from its business operations is known as revenue. Companies with higher revenue are often ranked higher on the list since they are thought to be more successful.

Net income is a business’s entire amount of money after all costs are deducted from sales. Companies are often ranked higher on the list if their net income is higher because they are thought to be more profitable.

Earnings Per Share

The financial ratio known as earnings per share (EPS) calculates how much profit a firm makes from each share of its stock. Companies are often ranked higher on the list if their EPS is higher because they are thought to be more profitable.

It is important to note that PSX has its ranking system, and while its requirements may change from those listed above, these are the general criteria utilized to identify the top companies.


Companies that have regularly outperformed the market over some time tend to hold high positions on the list of top companies listed on the PSX. These businesses often have excellent financial standing, an impressive performance history, and a dominant market position in their respective industries. Oil and gas, banking, and telecommunications are a few examples of sectors where corporations frequently hold a strong position over several years.
