Last week saw plenty of change in the top-10 list of market cap leaders, but

General Electric

(GE) - Get General Electric Company (GE) Report

retained the top spot, with a market cap of $469.4 billion for the week ended Jan. 5.

Citigroup

(C) - Get Citigroup Inc. Report

made the biggest jump last week, moving up four places from No. 7 to No. 3. Its market cap now stands at $269.8 billion.

Intel

TheStreet Recommends

(INTC) - Get Intel Corporation (INTC) Report

, which had fallen out of the top-10 list for the week ended Dec. 29, made its way back this past week, coming in at No. 8, with a market cap of $215.8 billion.

Merck

(MRK) - Get Merck & Co., Inc. (MRK) Report

, which occupied the No. 9 spot the week ended Dec. 29, fell off the list after the

Federal Open Market Commitee

lowered interest rates last week and sent investors scurrying out of the defensive stocks that had been hiding places prior to the Fed cutting interest rates.

The top 10 stocks now have a combined market cap of $2.696 trillion, little changed from last week.
