Unicorn comps: 60 Internet Stocks worth US$1 billion or more

I consider myself a relatively boring, probability of cashflows investor not easily attracted to hyper-growth promises of many Internet company investments.  Nonetheless, I have slowly started to get more interested in established Internet companies as I see them developing moats and staying power that make them sustainable cash cows more than bets on speculative upside.  Perhaps even more than banks, many of these are services many people I know use every day, if not every hour, so it is perhaps not surprising that the largest ones rival the biggest banks in overall market cap size.

Here is a list of the 60 largest listed Internet companies as of January 2017, most or all of which have a market cap over US$1 billion, which has been the minimum valuation threshold for “unicorn” private, non-listed companies like Uber or AirBnB:
